On this page, you will find the best Tier 4 PvE gear and best in slot items for your Retribution Paladin in TBC Classic Phase 1.


Retribution Paladin Tier 4 Best in Slot List

This is a list of gear that is considered to be the best in each slot for Tier 4 content of TBC Classic.

The list below is following the stat priority of Hit Cap > Expertise > Strength > Haste > Armor Penetration > Crit and will include items available exclusively from TBC dungeons, professions and reputation rewards.


Other Retribution Paladin Best in Slot Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Retribution Paladin, our pre-raid best in slot list is meant to give you an idea of non-raid items you can chase as a solo / pug player in preparation for raids.

Do note that items from Heroic dungeons or that require Primal Nether Icon Primal Nethers (which are obtained from Heroics) can be harder to get than raid items due to their daily lockout. Some Heroic dungeons are also harder than most of Karazhan.

If, however, your character is ready to take on the content of Tiers 5 and 6, then please utilize our updated lists instead.
