    Retribution for Retribution

    Just got on the PTR - I had no idea the Retribution passive (50% increase damage for 10 seconds when an ally dies) was still a thing. Does everyone else like this? I can't stand the idea that I can only unlock my full damage potential when the rest of my group plays badly.

    i cant recall where it was said exactly, but "retribution" is a perk. Blizz said they havnt mitigated our dps due to that trait alone. 3 Blessings of might on the other hand >.>

    The question I have is, does it stack? Like, if half your raid eats it, do you get to do God damage for 10 seconds?
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    it just refreshes the duration. does not stack.

    going to be a VERY nice boost on progression thats for sure.

    I love that idea, since i enjoy random bgs as much as rated pvp, i will love the dmg boost when nubs around me will be dying left and right and my Ret will be top dmg and far ahead of 2nd dpser...oh i can already feel the ocean of outraged QQing coming when casuals will see Ret's dmg in a random bg ';..;'

    Don't forget a pocket Healer, becuase our defenses are very strongest in Legion
    Fortress of Arrogance.
    Armour of Contempt.

    Sure as sure

    This. Specially when you get to the point where you're very close to actually killing a boss (1% wipes anyone?) And you get the 50% increased damage as you slowly start dying in the last phase. Last person standing, bubble with 50% increased damage you might just be the MVP of your raid for 5 seconds.

    I believe they said that the "Retribution" passive will not be included in our tuning, it will just be a bonus.

    Wut. You have your full damage potential all the time. This passive is flavour not balancing.
    Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

    That's not how it works. Sure, Blizzard say Retribution is just a bonus, and not counted towards your DPS output etc, but players don't see it like that. They see it as "1/3 of my damage relies on others being idiots every few seconds".

    hmm so a raid team of 20 with one person dies very 9-10 secs just so the ret teamm can burn harder. gotta love that tactic when it goes live >.<

    would work wonders for a boosting team. "just go die so you can boost our dps" yep i really can see players whinning to the raid leader that no1 any idiot not dieing for our dps gain.

    Y lewl more like a burn phase on demand (member dies boms spread among rets) if u bring 5 rets in the party.
    Now i can clearly see teams having to work around the fact that a ret is part of the opposite team instead of just go for/ignore the ret :P

    What idiots want to see something as is irrelevant to what it actually is.

    It is flavour, not part of tuning.
