not disputing your guide in any way but i just wanted your opinion, i use a spec shown in the link above, i find Eye for an Eye to be a negligible dps increase at best, wheras the utility you get from selfless healer allows you to save wipes or yourself if you have a struggling healer


thoughts? am i wrong here or what
There's no truly wrong way to spend the last two points; I simply choose to put them in E4E because they are a DPS increase. Slight, yes. Negligible? Matter of perspective. Depending on the fight, it can net anywhere from half a percent to a good 2 or 3% of your total output. My recommendation is based on the desire to maximize output.

[e] Edited the Spec section to include a little something about Selfless Healer, and then some. Thanks for bringing it up.

Excellent guide! I just came back to PvE after years of PvP-only. I'm pulling great DPS even in this very sub-par gear. Thanks for the read!
This guide has helped me a ton even before it was updated! Sticky requested! thanks for the good work and putting all this info in a easy to find location.
do you have numbers to prove that using judgement behind DP procs is higher than using it before?

edit: and i don't possibly see how HoW could be higher than Exo now with the crit nerf to HoW
Yes!

Now people can't whine that I'm telling them to read out of date guides (which are still perfectly relevant for the core mechanics) when they make threads saying "MY DPS SUCKS FIX ME NOAWWW!!!!".

The reason it doesn't move in front is because Judgement has the ability to proc Divine Purpose itself. It's possible that by using Judgement before consuming a DP proc, you may be wasting a new proc and therefore a free TV (and therefore DPS).

It's pretty basic logic. Why would you risk wasting a possible DP proc, and therefore a free TV, and therefore free DPS? I can't give straight-up numbers without actually scaling the raw benefit of each ability. If basic reasoning isn't sensible enough, I suppose you don't have to follow the suggestion.

Even with HoW crit rate vastly reduced, the priority of HoW ahead of Exo seems to remain. I suspect this is because delaying HoW will set back the CD on the next, while delaying Exo rarely will lose an Exo proc.

yea the reason im asking is because i doubt a 15% chance for dp to proc while a dp is up is well 15% while using a judge is a guarenteed holy power. im sure someone will run the numbers soon enough anyways
I'm going to go ahead and sim both rotations in normal T13 BiS. I sort of got lost in all of the information while putting this thing together that I neglected to actually do so... I've been using first-glance logic, but I may or may not be able to get actual numbers. I'll post my findings.

[e] Sims suggest no real variation between DP TV > J and J > DP TV. I'm writing it off to preference for the time being. If someone comes up with definitive numbers to prove that one way or the other is more efficient, then right on. Otherwise, it isn't such a big deal.
Not trying to be a %%#! btw just pointing out some things I've been wondering myself. This is a very nicely put together guide and will help new pallies or experienced ones.
No worries, it makes perfect sense. Went and changed a few things in the T13 2-piece sub-section.
Thanks for posting this! Was looking for some specifics regarding rotation as I'm fairly new to ret.

Good job, Svayne. Requesting a sticky for ya. Keep it up.
Good job. First read through, I thought I had something to add, second read through, realized I didn't, you just covered it elsewhere and it didn't click in my brain. Kinda tired at the moment.
