Getting ret OS, need help

So while I'll be remaining a prot MS, my GM has asked that I pick up ret for my OS, since I'll be more helpful as an extra DPS than an extra healer in a fight that doesn't need that many tanks. So I did a quick respec of my holy OS, to what I think is a decent ret build. If anyone can take a look at it and point out any glaring mistakes I've made, let me know.

So I've never really played ret, I briefly had a ret spec before 4.01, but even then I was a bit clumsy with it, and now with all the changes, I need a bit of help to learn it. So can anyone offer any help for ret 4.03? (and please be serious, I know ret's in a bad state right now, but that's what my GM wants and I'm not arguing with him. So i need to do my best to learn it and gear for it soon enough.)

If you can't argue with your GM, he's not going to listen to you when you tell him Ret is in a craptastic state right now and kicks you for your low DPS.

I don't think that'd be such a problem. For the most part, he's right. I'd be far more useful having a DPS OS than a heal OS, and I guarantee you that if it was bad enough it wouldn't stay like that long, and I remember a post saying that blizz was actively looking into making ret better. As long as I can learn it, it shouldn't be an issue. Anyway, its not like I'd be going to a raid as a DPS, I'd be going as a tank and then going ret for fights where the extra tank isn't needed.

Your talent build is solid.

Copy the glyphs in my PvE specc.

Your stat priority is (after hit and expertise cap)

Strength > Haste > Crit >>>>>> Mastery

Your rotation is a priority based system.

Inq > HoW > Exorcism > TV > CS > Judgement > Consecration > Holy Wrath

2 questions, 1st, are socket bonuses worth gemming for? And 2nd, is the mana regen good enough as ret to use cons? Doesn't it use like 55% mana without the prot talent?

Stack straight strength. Gem bonuses are generally not worth wasting the posible strength you could have.

I don't have problems with using conc. use it. More DPS, the better. Use proper arcane torrent and holy plea rotation and use your judgement to regain mana. I never run out and the insta-procs help me a lot when it comes to mana.
