Ret Dps

90 Human Paladin

So I may be doing something all wrong but I'm not sure what it is. I usually average around 37-42k and burst upwards to 75k.... But I constantly see other classes rolling me or other rets saying they do upwards and are always top on dps... I'm only on top when its the burst part, but once its back to going sustained... I fall behind and place like last or third.

What am I doing wrong? Or does this sound like a typical ret paladin right now. I was hoping finding a useful addon I used back in the day to help manage my rotation, but I think I have kinda the feel for it, even though I still run into dead time moments...

So maybe it sounds like I'm talking to myself, but I would appreciate an outlook on this, thanks!

Has Ret ever been that great since the end of WotLK (Except when pallys were doing 1-10 million dps due to bug.)

So am I useless in pve then...? If my friend and I both melee in like a 10, and we only ones, he is a death knight and will stomp me... might as well take two death knights...

If you think it's your rotation, get CLC ret. Also fix your hit and expertise.

It's not the class, it's all you. You're way below expertise cap and your hit is practically non-existent - THAT is why your DPS sucks. You can't damage what you can't touch.

Even if you can't get cap, it's well worth it to reforge as close as you can to hit/expertise caps.

Yeah I know I have to reforge, but on terms with my death knight friend who isnt anywhere near the hit cap either can still just do more... But once I reforge, got that addon (thanks by the way) and when I can actually play the game, i'll see where my numbers are.

I have a damage macro that hits all of my offense CDs with one button during boss battles. MASSIVE damage with Holy Avenger.

I was a huge advocate of CLCRet in Wrath days, but now? Come on, I believe it will only hinder you.

This coming from a Druid?

Am I wrong? Is he not way below hit and expertise caps, and does that not significantly hinder his DPS?

Also, this is an alt; I prefer the way this looks on the forums over my main, which is a Retribution Paladin. The top hat is just too spiffy.

^ is Grognard, is ret, and knows what hit and expertise caps are.

And the top hat, folks.
