Prot in Ret Gear

Postby Barcode » Fri Oct 31, 2008 1:22 pm

I'm going to be staying prot as i level in WotLK. I have fairly decent ret gear, t6 or equivalent.

My question is how do i gem it. Previously i had it gemmed for str and I spec'd ret. With our new changes I can now do substantially better dps in my ret gear using a 1 hand and shield than before.

Should i stick with str gems or switch them to ap gems? Perhaps something else?

this shouldn't really go here, maybe the gear suggestions forum, but the Str gems will always be better as you'll have divine strength.

For leveling, pure +STR in every slot will probably be optimal.

Str is always >>> AP for Paladins no matter what spec.

Stick with Str, you'll go far
