Ret PvP

Paladin
So for gems, just as much PvP power as possible with resilience where i can't put power?

Reforging? Crit or Mastery?
i like gemming for resil over pvp power

As for stats,

Haste>crit>mastery right now. Mastery is pretty garbage in pvp.
The toss up is minimal really since the secondary set of stats to reforge is small, but crit will benefit you in more ways than mastery since mastery only increases damage on certain abilities, whereas crit will work with your heals and your damage.

There's also been a lot of debate about rather or not mastery damage is getting taxed twice by resil. I tend to believe it because the numbers from mastery damage are so much lower than in pve, but I have also not seen anyone link any proof to support this claim yet either.
Going all resi > going all pvp power.

A dead DPS does no DPS.

And besides, you could gain something like 15% damage reduction with all resi gems, but only a bout 6% damage with all pvp power gems. (somebody did the math somewhere, I lost the link)

Interesting, and that would help ret's awful survivability haha
