    First of all, thank you for the link at the bottom to my Mists ret guide on WoW Insider. I spent a *good* deal of time working on that, it’s good to get it out there.

    Anyway, I wanted to go through a few things in your guide that I think aren’t entirely accurate. Hopefully you’ll find them useful and can incorporate them into your post here.

    1. Your rotation is almost spot-on — the only thing that’s considered incorrect is that HoW should be doing more damage than Exo because HoW is affected by mastery, whereas Exo is not.

    2. The tier 5 choice for your recommended talent build is a bit off, in my opinion. I understand that talents are primarily situational in nature now, but I would definitely recommend Divine Purpose over Holy Avenger here. While most sims are showing that HA and DP are roughly equal in terms of overall DPS, an “all-purpose” build would probably be best typified by one without many extra buttons to push.

    Same goes for Clemency, but that’s even *more* of an opinion than DP/HA, so I’ll let it go.

    3. Hit and expertise caps at level 85 are about 768-769 now, not 770. Minor point, but I might as well make it.

    4. For your “all-purpose” glyph recommendations, Mass Exorcism is one that should *not* be in there. It changes the nature of Exo so much that it changes the way you play and, quite frankly, not one that I can see anyone running around questing or running dungeons with.

    Thank you for your posts new and old ‘ve eard them for a year now and continually go back to them when needed to freshen my memory or learn something new. I’ve become a respected Pally on Bleeding Hollow much due to your posts guiding my way =). KISS (keep it simple stupid) with just raw numbers is greast for me. Thank you again from the bottom of my tankadin heart.

    Hi everyone,

    To answer Dan for his first point (exorcism) I think we have do cast exo before HoW just because Exo is a proc (20% chance) and it resets Exo too.
    In my mind, if Exo is up and i have a proc of, I feel like I loose one spell I could cast.

    I hesitate between Holy Avenger and divine purpose… The first give us a so huge burst for 30 sec but the second save us when we could have un hole in our dps rotation (without proc of Exo or enough holy power). So Holy Avenger put us to have strength/mastery in place of hast (i think) in yellow gem and reforging; Hast with Divine purpose.

    But, I have a question about Inqui : do you think it’s better to clic inqui with 1,2 or 3 holy power? (what about glyph double its time but down critics damages?)
    Thank you !

    P.S. Excuse me about my english ’cause I’m French but i would participate to this talk.

    I see you recommend Bold gems for red sockets What do you make of Icy Veins and EJs take on this that you should use haste gems for red sockets once you start raiding http://www.icy-veins.com/forums/topic/563-retribution-paladin-504/page__st__20#entry11381

      That makes perfect sense – I hadn’t seen the discussion, but now that I have I’m changing our gem recommendations. Thanks!
