re: Ret Pally 6.2 HFC

Good day folks,

This posting will contain helpful links & materials to guide you to a greater understanding of your RET Paladin in patch 6.2.x.

Please note: This is how I play. Not everyone has to play like this, however, I do spend a fair amount of time playing with Sims and reading info. Please play the way you want to.

2) WoWHead - http://www.wowhead.com/guide=2175/retribution-paladin-guide

These two sites will help you figure out how to spec. However, here are some general tips.

Spec Types:
Single Target Fights - Empowered Seals and Seraphim Builds come out on top with Seraphim being slightly better.
Multi-target or cleave fights, Final Verdict beats Empowered Seals and Seraphim by significant margin.

Jaenya is going Seraphim and Final Verdict depending on the fight.

Fight with 100% single target
Talents for Single Target DPS, there are 3-4 Glyphs you can take depending on the fight requirements.
Talent - Sanctified Wrath - Due to Tier-18 bonuses, we will have more up-time on Sanctified Wrath and when we activate it, it will provide us with an additional DPS increase.
Talent - Execution Sentence
Talent - Seraphim
Glyph - Glyph of Templar's Verdict (defensive)
Glyph - Glyph of Hand of Sacrifice (supportive)
Glyph - Glyph of Divine Protection (defensive)
Glyph - Glyph of Divine Storm (defensive)

Fight with 2+ targets or boss + minions
Talent - Sanctified Wrath or Divine Purpose. Divine Purpose can offer additional cleave chances, synergy with Final Verdict. However, Sanctified wrath pairs nicely with the Ret Tier 18 set. Each fight will dictate which is better to use.
Talent - Execution Sentence or Light's Hammer Note: The Light's Hammer talent is only good if the 2 targets are stationary. You cannot throw this down in the beginning of the fight as the bosses move. So you have to use a GCD to use this when they're in their final spot.
Talent - Final Verdict to empower divine storm for cleaving
Glyph - Glyph of Templar's Verdict (Defensive)
Glyph - Glyph of Double Jeopardy (Offensive)
Glyph - Glyph of Mass Exorcism (Offensive)
Glyph - Glyph of Hand of Sacrifice (Supportive)
Glyph - Glyph of Divine Protection (Defensive)
Glyph - Glyph of Divine Storm (Defensive)

~~~ Stat Priority ~~~
Stat weights and priorities do change based on the T18 and L100 talents you chose. Since the talents are chosen based on if the fight is Single Target or Multi-Target, I will group them this way.

Single Target - Seraphim - Stat Priority
Weapon Damage > Strength > Haste = Mastery > Multistrike > Critical > Versatility

Multiple Target - Final Verdict - Stat Priority
Weapon Damage > Strength > Mastery > Multistrike = Critical > Haste > Versatility

Common Important Stats
Weapon Damage | Strength | Mastery  -  Using Mastery gems and enchants will be a solid choice.
