    Need Help With Ret Pally Burst

    Just started out Ret i know the rotation and everything hopped into a fresh DS. I have 385 ilevel.

    When i'm bursting on Ultra with wings/zealotry i notice that when i do crusader strike and temps verdict my by the time the gcd comes back around crusader strike only has a second or half a second to come back up so in this situation should i hammer and be stuck in a gcd till crusader strike or just spam crusader strike and verdict?

    How much of a bonus does the 4 set give? I did about 31k DPS having enough time to use my wings/zealotry twice. I'm rocking 3 piece t13 and two piece t12 with only 46k burst.

    Want to maximize my burst any advice anyone could give would be awesome. Using 397 slicer over 390 gurth because i feel like since the content is nerfed so much gurth isnt that good so i would rather have pure stats. Any thoughts on this?

    Step 1. IF you still don't have it, go and buy the on use str tinket from vp vendor, Rotting Skull.
    Step 2. Make a macro
    /cast Zealotry
    /cast Avenging Wrath
    /cast Templar's Verdict
    /use Rotting Skull

    Step 3. Watch stuff die.

    To maximise burst you need to use an on-use trinket, I would not recommend using one however for any other fights but Spine.
    Tier 12 2 set is pretty weak, I can't give you an exact number but the 4set bonus from t13 is going to increase your burst dps by insane amounts. Unless you are under a bloodlust effect you should use a filler inbetween each Crusader Strike and Templar's Verdict during your cds.
    CS -> TV -> Exorcism -> CS -> TV -> HoW -> CS -> TV -> And so on.
    Your priority during cds should be:
    CS for HP > TV Divine Purpose > TV > Exorcism > HoW > Judgement > HW.
    If under bloodlust effect spamming CS and TV will do.
    397 slicer is superior to LFR Gurth so I would use that aswell, however if you want to push absolutely max burst dps, using LFR Gurth and hoping for a lucky tentacle proc will be superior, however I wouldn't recommend it, as it is an overall dps loss.

    I use Rotting Skull on Hagara Heroic and have the #18 parse for heroic 10 man so I'd say that's also a fight where you should use it.

    Yeah that's true forgot about Hagara, I use H: AoK for that fight, I have the memory of a goldfish sometimes
