255% weapon daamge lightning bolt is ALOT considering 275% TV + 35% armorRetribution
The tier-14 2-piece set bonus now causes Crusader Strike and Hammer of Wrath to have a 40% chance to make the Paladin’s next Divine Storm deal a Lightning Strike for 255% weapon damage as Nature.
Add the 100% holy DS that WILL benefit from the 2set and inqu.
I retract my posts. Excellent set again.
Also, what don't I understand here: DS > TV? Also, what's with the T14 2p bonus? I thought they were making T15 bonuses now..
I'm interested in the mechanics, not that this or that dude says I get a buff to a (priest) spell I know I don't have. I know what he's talking about, nitpicking on that falls on the trolling part. Sorry.
Oh, and I do understand what you're saying, I'm also obssessed about spelling, grammar and stuff. But not to the point of giving up on the main topic to chase butterflies 'cause they're more fun/cool. :P
But enough of the off-topic.

And don't even say wind lord that shit is nothing but storm spam.
If anything the storm spam is a good thing clearly horridon and troll council will be... lots of adds. Hopfully non of the troll council has a shield .
Hell after killing sha of fear Heroic and empress I wish Divine storm could proc lightning bolts now.
idc about typos blues may or may not make I only care about the info that the LB is 255% weapon damage.
Meh after screwing around abit with sims and looking at dps gains of various stats and various top performing specs currently vs ret: Don't think any kind of op/gimmicky set bonus even if 10% flat out dmg increase will be enough to stay on par with em next tier.
I'd like to see class changes that help it last not some dumbass bonuses.
According to the trinket thread they're in the same ballpark. However, Relic and Lei shin's synergise awesomely. Here's an example from Elegon: http://i.imgur.com/YXoXt.png
Holy crap.... our voices were heard?
Huzzah! mastery scaling is back on the table!
Holy TV should scale better from the lightning bolt storm single target through the immense hit dipping into mastery and the exorcism debuff. It sucks to not have single target cleave like dks but hopfully with this change in attitude from developers we may eventually see a 25% weapon damage bump on Dstorm or massive rightiousness buff.

GC responded to my plea to remove our T11 protection prepull and the potential T14 in T15 gimmic
Myself and many many many rets would be happy to just have these gimmics gone. Please?
We agree that it feels dumb and mandatory. We don't have a global solution to swapping set bonuses pre-pull, but we are trying to implement one. In the meantime, we have a list of specific set bonuses (including the two you mentioned) to discourage for pre-pull.

So the items will be rolling out on PTR soon would everyone prefer a new thread or a name change to this one and new OP with a link to the page where the new tier begins?
I feel this thread is large enough to were it would draw attention far more then if i had a new 1 page thread. OP would be cleaner then this one because this tier with 5mans MSV and the Hof/Terrence gearsets made everything a mess to go over. nevermind the VP + system making an appearance far earlier then expected.
