Best Phials, Weapon Augments, and Potions for Retribution

Phial of Tepid Versatility Icon Phial of Tepid Versatility is our general phial of choice for almost all situations. Phial of Static Empowerment Icon Phial of Static Empowerment is a decent upgrade for the encounters with little to no movement.

Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power is the best potion, with the cheaper Elemental Potion of Power Icon 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 Icon Residual Neural Channeling Agent to deal additional damage.

To heal yourself during combat, use Refreshing Healing Potion Icon Refreshing Healing Potions and Healthstone Icon Healthstones (they do not share cooldowns).


Best Food for Retribution

You should eat the Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak Icon Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak feast or the Fated Fortune Cookie Icon 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 Icon Buzzing Rune for additional Critical Strike.
