An awful lot of people complaining about our DPS in dungeons nowadays...
Here is the true secret to filling the DPS slot:
Keep Righteous Fury turned off. Now before you all start yelling about me not making any sense, that it's always off anyway and that I'm an idiot wasting your time - the reason I give you this tip is that it's going to be very hard to get used to not having it on, because to DPS you are going to be speccing Protection.
1. Spec Prot
2. Wear full strength gear
3. Get a slow hitting, DPS 1h (see enhancement shamans and frost DK weapons)
4. Wear a spell power shield
5. Stand next to your tank in dungeons, and ACT like you are tanking, using all the moves you would normally use to hold threat (including HotR, Avengers Sheild, SotR, Cons and Holy Wrath) EXCEPT for your taunts and again, keep Righteous Fury off.
6. Get in top of DPS
Thank me later friends.

But feel free to change around some parts if you actually go ahead and use this tactic for DPS Farranor. I for one like the sound that parrying makes, and the sp Sheild was intended for a slight increase to HotR shockwaves and Censure dmg. Of course it's still a bit of a joke. :)
Sadly this is true. I can do far higher dps as prot spec than ret, not to mention I can off tank.
I cannot say that I would really gear up for this just in case we do see a ret fix in the near future, but since you are going for dmg I guess the T11 Ret Gear... The SP shield just seems right because a tanking Sheild wouldn't really do any good for it's purpose, since you aren't going to be the actual tank. AGAIN this is all figuratively speaking as it is a joke with the purpose of having a playful jab at retribution's gimpyness at this stage. OR IS IT?
Yes it is.
Noted, I originally overlooked that fact.
On a different subject, how do you keep your portrait in that BC gear?
I have a super-genius strategy that involves taking this gear set out of my bank, equipping it with the Equipment Manager, and logging out. =P
This gives me an idea.

If you're going to bother with some SP gear get a caster weapon. That's what atleast 1500 SP right there which'll boost to just about all of you're spells (given the fact that inquisition increases HOLY damage). i feel that this might not be a bad idea except for the fact that you look stupid and it just makes blizz want to mess with pallys even more
Shhh... srsly guys... When the dev "team" sees this they will go ape-sh*t.
Imagine this conversation....
Dev A: Hrmmm... apparently Prot is doing more damage than Ret.
Dev B: WTFBBQNOWAI!!!!! But Ret should do teh most deeps!!!
Dev A: You're right. We need to nerf Prot damage below Ret so people know Ret is deeps.
See what I did there?
