Retribution Paladin Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List for Molten Core / Onyxia's Lair

This is the gear we recommend you to chase while doing the first raids in the game: Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair.

Paladin's Tier 1, Lawbringer Armor is designed to be a set meant for Holy Paladins, making it not great for Retribution Paladins. Instead, most of your BiS setup in this phase will come from off pieces from Molten Core, or even just dungeon gear in some slots. Sadly, competition for lots of these pieces will be quite high, since Warriors will want them as well, so be prepared to spend some time obtaining them.

The list below contains gear from: raids, epic PvP sets (above rank 11) and world bosses, as well as some gear from dungeons and quests, when warranted.
