Patch 3.3 Primer for Ret Paladins

I’m sure by now, many of you have heard that MMO-Champion has went out on a limb and said that 3.3 is going to hit on tuesday.  Honestly, I was kind of expecting it to hit at the same time, so I would be VERY surprised if it didn’t show up.

In any event, what can Ret Pally’s expect?

Well, it depends on how you specced.  If you chose to take your +9 and put them into Divine Sacrifice, just know that it is no longer raid wide, it’s party wide.  You may want to re-think your selection.  I did, and moved over into the ret tree for Vindication, and the prot tree for the extra healing Divinity provides.

Outside of that, repentence is no longer broken from our holy dot effect.  (why it wasn’t always this way, I can’t understand)

And last but not least, AoE effects are getting capped at 10 targets.  If you have more than 10, the AoE will split the damage as if it was damaging 10 targets between all the targets.  But, no big there.  How often are you AoE’ing down more than 10 targets?  I can only think of one place – Ony’s lair.

All in all, not a lot of changes for us.  I don’t think we are going to see anything big until the next xpack, and maybe not even then.  Even though we have some issues in PvP, all in all, Ret’s are in a good place right now.

Ohh, and don’t forget to pick up your glyph of sense undead.  This whole tier will be our playground, and believe me, I will be in the sandbox with the big-boys.
