Hello everybody, so 2 months or so playing ret and slowly progressing but I'm feeling I'm lacking of something to really perform and I'm reading on a regularly basis these forums and other internet ressources like checking top logs (I really hope one day I could master the expression editor to rapidly compare HP generator/CD usage etc. between logs :/) I need a sanity check on how I perform and especially what I should improve.
Armory Link: My armory
Alternate Specs/Glyphs: I'm doing all my fights with SW and ES and sometimes I'm swapping glyphs Exo / Harsh words
Questions, concerns, expectations: So far I'm doing okay, this LO I coined a 541 hit sword and was hoping doing good but I feel I'm hitting a plateau, I know I'm a bit inexperienced with ret but still it's bugging me ^^. IMO I'm delaying my abilities too much, my first conclusions lead me to think that I'm missing some GCDs (got some abilities delay :/) and so far I'm generating not enough HP then I start incriminating the RNG and my crit chance on Truck Verdict so I'm coming here asking for a sanity check ^^
Description of Playstyle: Exo > CS > J, avoiding HP capping, "high risk" rotation under AW, avoiding 2T15 early clipping, avoiding 4T15 "CS wasting", delaying ES for trinket proc when it's possible.
Thank you for reading me !

So I recently started raiding again...joined a H ToT guild, got up to Ilvl 514 yet still my sustained dps is in the low 100k. There are a few other rets with a bit more gear than me, but they are pushing 200k plus and I have no clue where i'm going wrong.
Alternate Specs: Never usually change from SW & ES
Playstyle: Exo, CS, Judge, fill HP and TV, inquisition is usually always up. HoW when ever possible.
Please help. Thanks for your time.
You missed an entire wings in the Consorts fight I looked at.

Only real suggestion is don't leave a GCD empty by hesitating to hit anything.

Thx anaxie for your answer !

Questions, concerns, expectations:At my gear level now is my dps acceptable? I feel like I should be higher on meters. I don't know if it is purely gear or if it is my rotation as well. I know I can work on my raid awareness. I am still new to ToT so that will come with time. I would like to improve my dps as I am getting beaten by a rogue, warlock, and a shaman.
Description of Playstyle: I have been using the CLC Ret rotation helper and am able to follow that pretty easily. Perhaps my rotation isn't correct. Or my timing is off. For anyone familiar with the mod my rotation is: inq tv5 es how exo cs j tv3

Other slots with no haste whatsoever aren't reforged
Rotation appears to only be the basic without the advanced rotational changes tier and cd provides. I'd cite this but I feel like you can find that information on your own and getting the basics of gearing and reforging down is the first step you need to take before moving forward.

As for the rotation would I be able to look that up on a Ret Pally thread here on MMO Champ? I'd really like to know the best source for information. So many people suggest different sites like EJ, Manaflask, Noxxic, Mr. Robot, etc and everyone has an opinion on which site is best.
Thanks for your input.

Questions, concerns, expectations: Looking to get some feedback on my priority system given the 2pc/4pc bonuses and to see what things I can be doing better. To start a fight, I go pre-pot, J (first if Exo glyphed), Exo, CS, 3 HoPo Inq, AW/GoAK (should I spread these out?), HoW -> (5TV > HoPo builder > 3TV, reapplying Inq as necessary, etc). I'm also casting ES in the opener at 9/10 stacks of Feather, then recasting on CD unless Feather is building while it's coming off CD. Where can I improve my opener?
Hey guys. So I went through a little hiatus in wow and came back to it during 5.3. I decided to roll a pally and go ret. So needless to say I'm a little behind atm. My dps is decent... However I definitely think It can be improved. Let start by explaining how I've been gemming/gearing. I've been sticking to what I've been reading and making haste my priority and mastery in second to that (obviously hit,exp need to be capped). Now my issue is that I notice a lot of burst, jumping to 200k-250k when I pop all my cooldowns... However I drop down to 100-130k 100% of the time and never finish a fight off higher than that. My thought at this point is simply to switch my sanctified wrath talent to divine purpose to allow myself to maintain my dps and not be so reliant on my cooldowns. I figure i'll be going to back to sanctified wrath when I get my 4pc though. Also.. Any thoughts on my glyphs? I was thinking about using mass exorcism... And what is the general consensus on double jep? I've been realizing with this glyph and using seal of truth I can tab through targets build truth stacks and make use of my double jeopardy glyph.. Idk just me brainstorming... Well let me know what you think..
Heres my link http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...iragies/simple
Suggestion are very welcome and all help is needed!! thanks!
Double Jep is a good glyph, free dps when there's more than 2 targets and there's really not much for us when it comes to glyphs if you want a dps boost. Mass Exo is not worth taking, unless it's for certain fights where you're not going to be out of the bosses melee range for a long time. Your armory is good and you've got the basics down, your dps sounds almost where it should be for your ilvl.
I think you just need to get the hang of SW as a talent and get the maximum amount of HoWs in during AW. I would swap out your boots enchant to 175 haste and use 180 str for bracers. Ret mobility is pretty good with our talents, and PoJ does not stack with Pandaren Step.

Questions, concerns, expectations: Ive had the worst luck with drops, but with the LFR wep, and 2pc i think im doing the best that i can. I know i can tighten up some things to get higher DPS. What do you guys think ? any input would help.
Hoping to get a 522 wep, and 4pc tonight. Untill then just need to upgrade a few more pcs.
NOT maybe the right thread to ask, but what would be montoyal's rotation inq tv5 how cs_n4t15 j exo tv3_4t15 cs tv3 being the bis? Used before inq tv5 how tv4aw cs tvaw j exo tv3

Questions, concerns, expectations: I was wondering if you guys could see any kind of opportunity that I might be missing? I feel like I don't do enough dps... Don't know why.
My concern is, I think I should do 130k and above damage like the rest of the paladins I see with worse gear than me, However, I get mixed results. My average score is 80k-95k dps, it goes 120k fully buffed with all cds popped.

Just thought that I'd post and see what I can to do improve my dps. Any and all suggestions/help is appreciated.

Questions, concerns, expectations: no immediate questions, just looking for obvious advice in reference to my WoL.
Description of Playstyle: prepot -> open with judge -> exo -> CS -> (3HP) inquisition -> judge -> cs/exo (if it procs) -> (2HP)AW -> HoW -> TV -> HoW -> CS -> hoW -> Exo -> HoW.
I only go to 5HP if Exo procs after a HoW that reaches 3HP. I'm pretty sure I have it down, I'm trying to time my Exorcism buffs from the 2pc appropriately to almost always have the increased holy damage buff.
Just by looking at my logs I know my Inquisition buff isn't where it should be in terms of uptime, I'm shooting for 90% or higher, that 10% only existing when I have to move or do other things like saving the raid or helping out with utility.
Any help is appreciated!
