I haven't tried it as ret, mostly because I tried Marrowgar as ret and he 3 shot me. My prot set is basically my ret gear with a sword and board.
Can anyone help me out?
marrowgar would 3shot you because of how the mechanics of the fight work (if I recall correctly you used to 3tank him because of shared cleave)
since DW is mostly magic I'd imagine ret would probably have an easier time soloing it with the higher dps.
Deathwhisper as Ret is tricky, and seems to require pretty strong gear. I only recently became able to manage it, and I've got a much better weapon than you currently do. Basically, kill the Adherents ASAP and hope for the best.
Alternately: go Prot, glyph Focused Shield, and pull all the trash from the entrance through Deathwhisper's room, for infinite Grand Crusader procs (cooldown reset = bypass Curse of Torpor). Machine-gun shields into Marrowgar, then Deathwhisper. Profit.
But all your mitigation is tied to active abilities, no? Especially Shield of the Righteous :|
