Rule of Law
Eye for an Eye
Seals of Command
Inquiry of Faith
Arbiter of the Light (Holy tree)
Protector of the Innocent (Holy Tree)
Crusade, rule of law, and arbiter of the light are basically just flat dps increases, which are supposed to be weeded out. Getting rid of some of these can make room for some nice utility talents (both offensive and defensive as we are lacking in both atm).
Seals of command should buff each damaging seal to add a nice ret only utility. the righteousness seal buff is a good start. The other seals (especially justice) can also get a nice utility added here so that the seals do not become too powerful for the other specs.
Selfless healer and protector of the innocent should merge. As it is, protector of the innocent is now completely useless (why is it when thing are nerfed, they are ridiculously nerfed). To make selfless healer more useful, we should also benefit from the heal when we use it on others. Either make it heal us too, or give us a shield.
Guardian's favor is redundant with acts of sacrifice. Buffing spells we already have is not fun utility, and its really not fun when we need 2 separate talents to do so.
Eye for an Eye is just weird. Its useless against melee and i cant really tell if it helps me against casters. I'm sure it does, but its passive and lame.
Inquiry of faith just increases the duration on inquisition (increasing durations and lowering cooldowns seems to be all our talents do) and increases damage to censure. I think its fine, since you dont want inquisition to be up all the time for prot, but something else can be added here.
All in all, there are too many underwhelming talents and i think these are what is holding retribution back from getting real utility. I know that in 4.1 more passive talents will be removed, but i want to make sure these talents are highlighted as lame so they can get changed when it happens.
P.S. how do i change my avatar!
