Retribution Paladin Phase 2 / Tier 5 Best in Slot List

This is a list of gear that is considered to be the best in each slot.

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


Other Retribution Paladin Best in Slot (BiS) 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 your character is still progressing through the content of Tier 4 or is ready to take on Tier 6, then you may wish to consult their best in slot lists instead.
