Greater Flask of the Undertow Icon Greater Flask of the Undertow should be used along with Potion of Unbridled Fury Icon Potion of Unbridled Fury for both single-target and cleave.

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


Best Food for Retribution

You should eat from the Strength feast Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table.


Augment Runes for Retribution

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.

Starting in patch 8.3 you can also use the re-usable Lightning-Forged Augment Rune Icon Lightning-Forged Augment Rune to increase your primary stat by an equal amount.
