Ret-Noob, no more?

In this third and final article about the new Wrath of the Lich King Paladin talent trees, Byron "Messiah" Mudry discusses the greatly improved Retribution Tree. Retribution players have long been shunned by groups and raids, however all that may be changing. Blizzard seems to have really listened to the concerns and comments about the tree and buffed it significantly. It now features more damage, utility and group/raid buffs.

The first of the new talents is Swift Retribution and it boosts melee, casting and attack speeds of players affected by your retribution aura by up to 3%. Yet another buff to players in your group. With this and your earlier talent you will be buffing players with a 2% damage increase and a 3% speed increase. Combined this boosts your groups DPS by 5.6% which is a very nice buff. Anyone this deep into Retribution should really consider this and Sanctified Retribution as must have talents.

You can find all the details in our In-Depth Look at WotLK Paladin Talents – Retribution.
