Classic Retribution Paladin DPS Enchants and Consumables

Last updated on May 18, 2020 at 12:16 by Impakt 20 comments

On this page, we list the best enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Retribution Paladin DPS in WoW Classic for PvE content.

1.

Foreword

One of the biggest differences between Classic and other iterations of WoW is the widespread usage of consumables. There are few limits to how many consumables you can use, and consumables can be incredibly powerful. Consumables can be extremely useful in all aspects of the game and can be a big difference in PvP, as well as raiding. Below is a list of all the possible consumables that you would be able to get and make use of as a Retribution Paladin.

One thing we cannot stress enough is that you do not *need* all of the possible consumables to play the game. While some of them are very powerful and highly recommended, you can use as many or as few as you want. All of the raids are possible without using every available consumable, although some guilds will choose to make use of lots of consumables to make the content easier. Similarly, you can PvP without consumables, but you may be at a disadvantage over other players who choose to make use of them.

World Buffs

World buffs are buffs that you will not be able to get on your own. Generally, these are buffs you will go and get with your guild if you want to stack all possible buffs for a raid. Generally, these require some sort of raid-related activity to obtain.

  • Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer Icon Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer increases your chance to critical hit with spells by 10%, with melee or ranged attacks by 5%, and your attack power by 140. Everyone in Stormwind will receive this buff once someone turns in the Head of Onyxia Icon Head of Onyxia, which drops off of Onyxia in Onyxia's Lair. This buff can also be obtained by doing the exact same thing with the Head of Nefarian Icon Head of Nefarian/Head of Nefarian Icon Head of Nefarian from Nefarian in Blackwing Lair. They are the exact same buff and they do not stack.
  • Songflower Serenade Icon Songflower Serenade increases your Critical Strike Chance by 5% and adds 15 to all of your stats. You receive this buff by cleansing a Corrupted Songflower and then looting a Cleansed Songflower in Felwood.
  • Resist Fire Icon Resist Fire increases your Fire Resistance by 83. While in Upper Blackrock Spire, have a Priest use their Mind Control Icon Mind Control ability on a Scarshield Spellbinder to have them cast this on all raid members.
  • Spirit of Zandalar IconSpirit of Zandalar increases all of your primary stats by 15% and your movement speed by 10% for 2 hours. This buff works the same way as the Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer Icon Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer, but is gained from being in Booty Bay when someone turns in the Heart of Hakkar Icon Heart of Hakkar from Hakkar in Zul'Gurub.
  • Fengus' Ferocity IconFengus' Ferocity, Mol'dar's Moxie IconMol'dar's Moxie, and Slip'kik's Savvy IconSlip'kik's Savvy are all 2-hour buffs that can be obtained from Dire Maul North by talking to the various ogre bosses after successfully completing a tribute run. You do not actually need to complete the run yourself, you just need to run into an instance where a run was completed and talk to Guard Fengus, Guard Mol'dar, and Guard Slip'kik. The buffs will give you 200 AP, 15% Stamina, and 3% spell crit chance, respectively.
  • Whenever the Darkmoon Faire is active, you can get a 10% damage buff, a 10% stat buff to a specific stat, or +25 to all resistances by answering some questions from the fortune teller Sayge in the faire. You can effectively choose which buff you want by answering his questions in the specific way.

Best Raid Consumables for Ret Paladin

While this guide lists all of the potentially useful consumables that you could ever make use of, you most likely will not need more of them. This is the shorter list for what are considered the most important consumables to have while raiding.

  • Flask of Supreme Power Icon Flask of Supreme Power increases your spell damage by 150 for 2 hours, and persists through death. Unfortunately, it is very expensive to create, and you can only have 1 flask active at any given time, so only use this for big occasions. It is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Major Mana Potion Icon Major Mana Potion restores Mana and is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Rune restores Mana in exchange for health and drops from demons in the world. The best ones to farm are the Felguard Elites in the Blasted Lands.
  • Dark Rune Icon Dark Rune restores Mana in exchange for health, but shares a cooldown with Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Rune. These are BoE, meaning you can buy them on the AH. If you do not have lots of time, buy these instead of farming Demonic Runes.
  • Major Healthstone Icon Major Healthstone restores health and is created by Warlocks.
  • Heavy Runecloth Bandage Icon Heavy Runecloth Bandage restores health while you channel it and is crafted through First Aid.
  • Wizard Oil Icon Wizard Oil increases your spell damage by 24. This is crafted through Enchanting.
  • Juju Power Icon Juju Power increases your Strength by 30. It is a quest reward given by Witch Doctor Mau'ari in Everlook, Winterspring.
  • Juju Might Icon Juju Might increases your AP by 40. It is a quest reward given by Witch Doctor Mau'ari in Everlook, Winterspring.
  • Juju Flurry Icon Juju Flurry increases your attack speed by 3%. It is a quest reward given by Witch Doctor Mau'ari in Everlook, Winterspring.
  • Blessed Sunfruit Icon Blessed Sunfruit increases your Strength by 10 for 10 minutes. This is bought from the Argent Dawn quartermaster after hitting Revered reputation.
  • Elixir of the Mongoose Icon Elixir of the Mongoose increases your Agility by 25 and your Critical Strike Chance by 2%. It is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Greater Arcane Elixir Icon Greater Arcane Elixir increases your spell damage by 35 for 1 hour. This is crafted through Alchemy.

The Elixir and Juju buffs all increase your damage, while the other potions and runes give you health or Mana. While it is important to have health potions, bandages, and a Healthstone available just in case, you probably will not end up using them. You will certainly make use of your Mana consumables, however, as you will have a low Mana pool (especially early on), and more Mana means more spell casts during a fight, which can be a large damage increase, depending on how long the encounter might be.

  • Greater Fire Protection Potion Icon Greater Fire Protection Potion puts a buff on you that absorbs some Fire damage. It is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Juju Ember Icon Juju Ember increases your Fire resistance by 15. It is a quest reward given by Witch Doctor Mau'ari in Everlook, Winterspring.

It is also important to realize that the first raid is Molten Core, where the most common type of damage you will take is Fire damage. Some of the harder bosses, such as Ragnaros, can deal lots of Fire damage, and you might want to consider having these defensive Fire Resistance consumables, just in case you need them.

All On-Use Consumables for Paladins

5.1.

Health and Mana

Potions all share a cooldown. You cannot use multiple potions at the same time, and when you use a potion, it will start its cooldown for all potions. That being said, it is still useful to have multiple potions in your bags for different situations. Being in combat does not affect your potion cooldown or availability.

  • Major Healing Potion Icon Major Healing Potion restores health and is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Major Mana Potion Icon Major Mana Potion restores Mana and is crafted through Alchemy.
  • Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Rune restores Mana in exchange for health. It drops from demons in the world. The best ones to farm are the Felguard Elites in Blasted Lands.

All Buff Consumables for Paladins

Flasks

Flasks have a restriction, which is that you can only have one flask active at any given time. It is also worth noting that flasks are some of the most expensive consumables in the game since they require Black Lotus Icon Black Lotus to craft.
