    Divine conviction would do 250 % as holy damage.

    Could someone give a PVP math example to really understand the impact of the change ?

    Thanks in advance.
    Ok, while this looks like a nerf its a pretty substantial buff. Here are some reasons:

    1. There is no holy resistance in game, it is static the only thing that will reduce its damage is an ability that reduces damage taken via divine protection, shield wall, ice bound fortitude etc.
    2. While it doesn't say +(insert given number here) it will still have this via mastery, right now my mastery increases tv damage by 36% this will also apply to Final Verdict (Conviction talent)
    3. Inquisition increases holy damage done by 30% so for TV that 638 is holy damage so inq increases that around 212 making it hit for 750 extra holy damage. Ex. Lets take my 92k TV crit in pvp (real number) for example and make that lets say 85k crit multiply that by .3 (30%) you get 25.5k add the two together and you get 110, 500 Final Verdict damage instead of 92k.

    And these are just random numbers, however even after the nerf to the initial number you can tell it is a considerably large dps increase.

    I also need to add that I didn't factor in any armor values either as the 92k crit TV is reduced by armor stats as well. So the number above for FV is probably 5 to 10k higher now that it does pure magic damage.

    Won't this go a long way to fixing TV double dipping on resil. I mean any ability that has a secondary effect calculated off the primary ability gets hit hard by resil. Made me crazy before the massive pve combustion nerf how shit combustion was as it triple dipped!

    Coming from a mages perspective, i dont get scared of rets popping wings for big TV's (granted they hurt when they crit for sure) but normally i will try to shut them down, most of the damage i take comes from ranged abilities and maybe 1 TV if they get close, im far more scared of DKs/Warrior with cds up and all the anti cc/reflects. Rets defo need this, if they are easy for me to control/kite then i should get raped if they manage to get close. Where as atm its seems i die in 3 globals to back to back Oblit/FS crits or one Bladestorm with block on cd.

    Edit: In retro spec you also bring a lot of utility to the party as well, hands are clutch game winners in 3s when used right and out right life savers and having 3 medium druation cc's on all different drs is really nice as well with the new fear talent. Guess its a trade off, if they up'd your damage too much you'd end up like warriors atm. I'm all for it tho, since i just lvl'd a ret alt to 90 and experiencing paladin for the first time in wow, and liking it

    Rets don't have 3 cc's.

    Also, I'd like point out that ret' utility is shared with Holy, which accidentally brings better heals, since ret' offheal is nonexistent these days due to ret being the weakest and obvious tunnel target.

    ??? HoJ BL EisAPOV? I'm assuming you dont think rets should take anything apart from fist? I was using them to great effect with my DK mate the earlier today in arena, took fear since he was playing with asphixiate, my gear was so bad i pretty was the cc bot most of the time and did damage during wings. Worked really well, but i know what your saying was hard getting the fear off being tunnelled.

    I do understand that at high ratings things are very different, im a fire mage and breaking 2k is not easy, and i've never manage above 2.2k yet as fire only frost. I can only sympathize as also being the victim of the pain train.

    My point was Conviction looks really nice for rets and i hope it goes ahead!! But the sticking point will be you have to lose summit to gain, which i believe is your viewpoint too?

    Apologies for any mistakes i make about the class, i'm new to it, always thought paladin forums would be more approachable tho?

    It's pretty easy to cast fears as ret in actually meaningful brackets on actually high ratings, sure as sure.



    And, no more giving up something. Enough is enough.

    Sigh..

    Holy TV after inquistion was roughly a 120% buff to the base damage so 250% *2.25.

    Mastery therefore will deal MEGA damage and since HoL is increased off Inq it will double dip and increase itself again.

    If our FINAL tier bonus would of been Holy TVS I would be doing 1.2 Million Crits with thoks and somewhere along the lines of 1.5 Mil Hand of lights with 80% mastery.

    Yes Holy TV strikes + our mastery is retarded.

    Correct % damage mods increase /decrease hit ret harder then any class because ALOT of our attacks are split into primary and secondary damage.

    What, Ret is fine. I just have bad trinket drop RNG and coins. I'm one of the strongest dps on Single target / Huge add fights. This is with a 30K dps handicap from having a pathetic trinket like skeers where the proc is pretty much unnoticeable.

    If I'm sitting I assure you. It's because I want to sit / Don't give a shit.

    The problem with ret is so much quantity not enough quality on the playerbase.

    so no, rets are still neck-deep in it.
    we've no actual gap closer, our selfdefence leaves much to wish for, our utility is brough by Holy(who accidentally brings better heals and better CC chains), and there is no reason to bring such an easy tunneled one-trick pony to a comp.

    Sounds just exactly like the reason above Quantity > Quality.

    Bad rep spec from too many terrible players.

    Oh and this thread will be about whatever I please. Don't make me turn this bitch into a Spiderman thread.

    Obviously none of the talents are final (well, shouldn't be considered final anyway) but the prospect of holy TV excites me very much.

    2nd: will the physical damage debuff from judgement remain(relevant at all for ret) ?
    The physical damage will still be around from white hits. Which is a huge portion of damage.

    Ice Lance does pure magic damage and crits for 20% of my health right now... so I doubt Conviction is going to change much lol.

    When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them.

    I like both the PVE and PVP talk in my thread, and thanks Anaxie, for stopping by. No offense to you other rets in here, i have learned most by myself and I play ret extremely well and competitive but if it weren't for Anaxies Numbers I'd know less.

    Main Point of this is PvP because I would be insane to say that DK/War would be dead in PvP. Having a Holy TV is a massive buff in PvP. Somethings to take from this thread right now (not ending it btw just catching people up)

    1. Conviction Talent making Templar's Verdict to Final Verdict. Is a huge buff to our damage.
    2. This is not a Final Talent, Blizz has an entire year to build and change all these new and currently live talents. It will happen whether we like it or not.
    3. Quantity > Quality. Its because of the Symbol a Paladin Stands for. A bad ret is God awful, when a bad mage can still be mediocre.

    TV when it crits is way more than Ice Lance by an Long shot. Ice Lance isn't that strong unless you have 5 shards up.
    Conviction will make TV make Ice Lance look like a fucking DoT.
    The Fact is DK's and Warriors do good damage. But as PvP as a whole. Rets probably sit in a 3 way tie of Enhance/Ret/Rogue in second place. Warriors are definitely the FotM Class atm moment. Fact is we won't know who sits on top in 6.0 we might be terrible we might be Tier 1. Conviction opens up ideas for Ret DPS in pvp and pve in 6.0. I love all the comments on my thread thank you again. Keep it up.

    Thanks Anaxie, I love Spider-Man. My favorite Marvel Hero. However try not to go too off topic. :P Unless you wanna argue about who is better Venom or Carnage. XD

    Just messing, sorry for contributing to my own thread change. Lawlz

    No it's not.

    Even if we had a one-shot ability on 10 second cd, it wouldnt help the fact that we suck in self-healing, self-defence, proper melee tools, and unique utility departments.

    Granted this talent does look great but has any one math out the other talent where we get +10% AP when we judge?

    +10% Ap which would increase the damage of all our attacks VS boosting the dmg of one attack

    Isnt frost strike pure Frost damge why would this be any different? Nvm I completely forgot about hand of light the damage multiplier would be insane 2.5*1.3(inquisition)* 1.3( assuming 30% hand of light damage)* 1.3(inquisition applied to hand of light aka double dipping)*1.2(AW) would bring the multiplier up to almost 6.6 meaning 660% unmitigable weapon damage which can be spammed with Holy avenger... I think it will get Divine storm treatment and be nerfed to oblivion.

    Templar's verdict: 275% Physical damage + 600
    Divine conviction: 250% holy damage + 30% dmg from inquisition = 325% total holy damage.

    is 600 = to 75% weapon dmg? hell no, 75% weapon dmg is about 15k

    It also ignore Armor so that's a roughly 30% more damage then Templar's verdict in pvp.

    Without inquisition its a very small dps gain but with it...

    Ok, so since you are mad, and clearly have no idea how to play ret, let's shed some light here.

    It was a pvp thread, do I really fuckin care about people talking about pve no. It is truely about the talent, get over your I am better than you ego. Because you sre probably terrible. Sure as sure.

    Conviction is a huge buff, whether you're feeble mind can see it or not. The tier 15 4 piece pve set bonus is BiS still for rets, do you know why? The numbers on TV become massive. And slaughters on increase in dps against t16.

    1.ya it is, it's ok you will learn don't worry we all grow with age.
    2. Your comments with your sure as sure is a terrinle troll. I'm sure blizz will give us something good, maybe not as good as necrotic plague but aoe is shit anyways for pvp.
    3. If you had some common sense and lohic you wouldn't be trolling every ret needs this, or is getting this, or has never had this thread in the forum.

    50k crits, hmmmm you sound undergeared would you like a carry? 5000g per win

    Exaggiration isn't a big deal but go ahead do the math, what is 75% of 1.2million being that's my highes hit of holy tv yet. Now take that and 1.2m - (.75*1.2m) = ya ice lance could look like a dot. There is a reason ice lane is spamable, those big crits you see from frost mages aren't ice lance they are instant FB and FFB.

    How many random bgs do you do a day, because ferals don't have solid consistant damage decent bursts ya but if you are a ret and you can't beat a feral that's hilarious.

    Ret/hunter/priest was tier 1 in 5.3, I have no clue where you were in that season, maybe trying to run vanguardscleave.

    Anyways I'm out of this thread. Its like convition will disappear and become a base line proc.

    Infracted. No need to insult others. ~Fhi
