Best Phials, Weapon Augments, and Potions for Retribution
Phial of Tepid Versatility is our general phial of choice for almost all situations. Phial of Static Empowerment is a decent upgrade for the encounters with little to no movement.
Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power is the best potion, with the cheaper Elemental Potion of Power being the fallback option. If you died, you can still use your shared combat potion cooldown and the Residual Neural Channeling Agent to deal additional damage.
To heal yourself during combat, use Refreshing Healing Potions and Healthstones (they do not share cooldowns).
Best Food for Retribution
You should eat the Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak feast or the Fated Fortune Cookie for an additional 75 Strength.
Best Weapon Runes for Retribution
As your temporary weapon rune of choice, you should use the Buzzing Rune for additional Critical Strike.
Augment Runes for Retribution
You should use Draconic Augment Rune during progression content for 87 additional Strength.
