Ok, so I've been gearing up and doing pretty good I think for only a few days work.. But, I just looted Romy's Reliable Grips, I know their for a Holy pally and not any stats that work for ret, but it would give me a 500 ilvl... I currently have Cliffbreaker Gauntlets. Should I just wait for something better to come along, or switch up?

Ohh... umm.. yea, no.. trolling, thats it... Look its my first 90, and I've never had this high of an ilvl, its exciting.. and 500 is even more exciting... I'll take it its a bad idea..

Oh ok... as retribution you need strength and only strength items. Even though it has a higher ilvl it does nothing to benefit your class and instead would gimp your dps.

Here's a good beginner guide

Holy gear does absolutely nothing for Ret. There are extreme fringe cases for Prot (mostly shields) where it can be viable, but it's still not recommended. Hitting iL 500 does absolutely nothing for you. You can already access all LFR content at 496, and Flex/normal would be doable with a good group to carry you.

Just be patient, and get the gear that you actually need. Helpful Ret information here:

Ok cool thanks, I'm not a complete newb.. Just never been this high before and I know at lower levels I would equip a piece that was not for my spec just to enter the dungeon.. wasn't sure if I had all access to all raids yet.. Still very much a newb when it comes to raiding and whatnot.. Timeless isle shot me up real quick, haha..

Unnecessary, since you can just carry the higher iL piece in your bags since gating is based on average available.

Retribution for what you did on the pvp thread.


...What'd I do? Twice, even?
