Ret playstyle

Exo does hit hard, and should be prioritized pretty high, but it's not quite top priority, because some attacks do hit harder still (ES, HoW, TV). Keeping Inq up is also higher priority; delaying Exo by one GCD is preferable to losing a large chunk of the spell's damage by not having Inq up.

You want to use tv or keep inq up over exo even if it procs.

Priority is like this if i remember correctly:

Keep inq up>tv at 5hopo>how>exo>cs>judge. While judgment does hit harder than cs due to cs's shorter cd you want to use cs first so they dont come off cd at the same time.

Not necessarily. Judgment causes a debuff on the target that raise CS/TV damage by 4%. But yes, it wouldnt make much difference a 4% buff in one skill.

And btw, 5 HP TV is not a priority, is a misleading advice.

You should prioritize HP generators over TV, excluding 2 situations:

a) If you hit 5 HP cap
b) If all HP generators are on CD

Holy Prism isnt that worse than Execution Sentence. Even if you ignore that it heals players around and that it can do a nice AoE damage if casted on a friendly target, single-target wise is pretty competitive with Execution Sentence. ES can only be better if you are pretending to use with all CDs up (and in between), but even then is a small margin that HP can cover if you use it for AoE damage now and then.

Exo is one of our hardest hitting abilities. Letting it sit off cd while you.....?

Is wasted dps. The fact that it procs at all is designed to be a dps increasing mechanic. You play a ret pally right?

Are you !@#$ing serious?


You need to relax on the nerd rage bro. This is a civil forum.

Edit: go tinker some phase fingers on your gloves and talent SW before you start waving your smelly epeen around... lol


Cute. You still haven't shown that you have much clue to what you are talking about. Armory trolling doesn't further your point, just shows you don't have one.

Thanks for catching the tinker, they're right next to each other in the recipe list and I obviously wasn't paying attention. And are you telling me to use SW for dailies? It would fit with your 'expert' advise, but I don't want to make wild assumptions like you.

Just like disagreeing isn't trolling, telling you that you are wrong and to please stop imparting people with your wrongness isn't epeen waving. I dunno, maybe learn what words mean too.

I am starting to get the feeling that you post and respond out of sheer narcissism. As such, you're pretty much a troll and not worth my, or anyone's, time. But hey, as long as you are keeping yourself entertained, right?

Any good advice you may have posted was overshadowed by your pr1ck attitude. I asked a simple question and got some good feedback, most of which reinforced the fact that at my level and gear I may see brief periods of inactivity in my playstyle.

I really do hope this is your least played alt, because someone with not even TES LFR experience is hardly in a position to talk as an expert. 6 years?, I've been playing 8. This pally alt is probably older than any of your characters, just not played very often.

And what is it with the use of .....? Is that how they write in your country?

For whenever starting a battle, get 3 holy power then keep Inquisition on at all times. Refresh at 3 Holy Power at 1 second left. Practice or get a mod to track buffs if you have to.

Inq>TV5>HoW>Exo>CS>Judge. Use TV3 when other abilites are on cooldown. Use exo proc right away unless TV5

For burns. Pop AW and GoAK.

Inq>TV3>TV5>HoW>Exo>CS>Judge.

Level 90 Talents are Situational. If you know how to macro, Holy Prism becomes very powerful for quick AoE

Once you start going up in ilvl and your haste increases those "blank spots" will begin to occur less and less frequently.
no they won't
haste reduces the global and the cd, as you get more and more haste you still do the same rotation, just faster. the gaps will still be there, just shorter.

I use quartz to time the best moment to use my exo proc without wasting the chance of another. I watch PvP streams where Rets will let Art of War just sit as a pretty gold circle. TV and HoW have higher priority, but letting Art of War fall off or refresh itself is a dps loss.
