Retribution Paladin Shadowlands

It is important to note that, when generating Holy Power, if you have only 1 Crusader Strike Icon Crusader Strike charge available, you should immediately stop generating Holy Power and go to the Holy Power-spending priority

Why?

What does ~= mean? 

It means about-equal. It is synonymous to ≈.

The reason for using it in this case is because all our secondary stats are about equally important, but their priority compared to each other is different for each Retribution Paladin profile based on many different aspects.

This is the exact reason why the stats page tells you that only simulating your own character can result in the most accurate result for you.

One of many examples is that if you use multiple Avengers Might Azerite traits, for single-target, your Mastery value will drop below all other secondary stats.

Another example is if you use multiple Expurgation Azerite trait, your Critical Strike might become your most important stat.

A more general example is that if you have very low amounts of Haste, Haste will become your highest priority secondary stat until the weight drops in your simulations back to being on par to your other secondary stats. For this case, you could swap your gems and ring enchants for Haste equivalents to maximize your dps.

These 3 examples are just very few examples of what affects the weight of your stats, which is why making a fixed stat priority is impossible.  If someone tells you a fixed stat priority, or even gives you specific weights for your Retribution Paladin, he is 100% wrong. I can only tell you that all stats are worth using, just the balance between them for best results is up to you to simulate based on your own profile.

Because spending Holy Power at that point is a better use of a GCD than using Crusader Strike another time to build Holy Power.

The chances are very high that you have a better Holy Power generator available to you after using the GCD to spend Holy Power. Crusader Strike is just this bad.

Will this guide change with these changes https://www.wowhead.com/news=319018/shadowlands-pre-patch-class-tuning-changes-threat-generation-increased-for-tanks?  For example will, Sanctified Wrath be the go to for the last talent slot or will Final Reckoning still be the best?

is currently the recommended choice in this tier for constant single-target.

Why? Some modicum of explanation on the various choices asserted in this "guide" would be nice. A guide should explain the Why as much as the What. This guide certainly does the latter, but frustratingly little of the former.
