Retribution Paladin Season of Mastery Best in Slot (BiS) List for Ahn'Qiraj

This is the gear we recommend to chase while doing the new raid in the game: AQ40.

Paladin's Tier 1, Lawbringer Armor is designed to not be a set meant for Retribution Paladins. However, the Tier 2 set Judgement Armor is great for Retribution Paladins, as it comes with great stats and tons of spell damage and it is basically free of competition. The Ahn'Qiraj Paladin set Avenger's Battlegear is very good for Retribution Paladins and is basically free.

Most of your BiS setup in this phase will come from pieces from Ahn'Qiraj, Blackwing Lair, 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. As an alternative for many of the contested Warrior items, using the Rank 10 PVP set Lieutenant Commander's Redoubt or the Field Marshal's Aegis from PVP rank 12 and 13 is a very good alternative.

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

Other Best in Slot Lists

As this list is meant to be used for Retribution Paladins in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery, we have created separate gear lists for those interested in optimizing themselves for the "main" branch of Classic instead. If you are not playing in the Season of Mastery, it is recommended that you consult this gear hub instead. In case you still need it, we have also included a link to our Phase 1/2 Season of Mastery gear list.

In addition, because Blackwing Lair, Molten Core, and Onyxia's Lair may require the use of additional Fire Resistance, we have a separate guide below to optimize your gear for this stat if necessary.
