Life through the eyes of a really bad Retribution Paladin

Three Months In And…

It looks like it’s time to find a new guild. When Rift was released, a few guildies (including the GM) decided to give it a go. The idea was that we’d take a break from raiding for a month and concentrate on making sure our character/s were up to speed for the new content. Admittedly, those that moved onto Rift had already done the groundwork and were sporting an iLevel of 342 to 350+.

The plan was to return and start raiding at the beginning of April.

It’s now the 5th of April and there is no sign of anyone coming back.

Anyone have a good home for a laughably-geared Ret Paladin and an even more laughably-geared Resto Shaman?


The Business of Alternate Characters

My teeny, tiny kitty finally reached level 70 a few days ago. I was originally going to wait until the release of Cataclysm before creating this character as the thought of a character switching furiously between Bear, Cat, Worgen and human form in combat had me in fits of laughter. To find out that would not be the case was somewhat disappointing. Additionally, STBW calmly informed me that she had “bagsies” on the Worgen Druid.

My Worgen, it seems, will be a Warrior.

Additional Retadin Macros for 4.0.1 and Beyond

Patch 4.0.1 killed off most of my macros. It was disappointing because I had everything so well planned out that I was able to control pretty much all of my abilities with one macro.

The following is a collection of the Retribution macros that made it through to 4.0.1.

Goodbye Armour Penetration–Hello Dee-Bee-Dubya!

I, like many Retadins, secretly coveted Deathbringer’s Will. The proc was not only visually stunning, but the proc bonuses were drool-worthy.

There were only two things blocking this trinket: ArPen and self respect. Armour Penetration had no place in a Retadin’s arsenal – which was infuriating as every single sodding piece of craftable DPS plate possessed it! Furthermore, to roll on this item would instantly label you as a “Scrub Pally”, forever the object of derision and ridicule.

Armour Penetration is gone now, its passing heralded by the chorus of, “Gimme that #@%&ing Dee-Bee-Dubya!”, from thousands of Paladins.

I do still have the occasional Warrior sidle up to me and whisper, “Lolret with DBW. Fail pally is fail”. My response has not changed since it dropped for me the week after 4.0.1 hit, “Read the bonus mate”, and link it.

Dear Warriors, Hunters and Death Knights.

I hope you got yours before the patch as the competition for that little number just got worse…
