In Solo I’m gimpy Ret

The points I have in Ret suggest I should focus on +spell, +spell crit and + melee crit. My healing gear has +healing all over it which isn’t terribly useful in solo. So I need another set of gear (that’ll make 3; healing, solo, tanking).

I reviewed my current points in Ret.. and Ret itself seems to be all over the place (probably the reason it’s described as a tree with no purpose). Currently I have 17 points in Ret. Those are full points in Benediction, Improved Judgment, Improved Seal of the Crusader, Conviction and Eye for an Eye.

I like the idea of Eye for an Eye but I think in instancing it will actually be a detriment. In an instance the only time I should be hit by spells is when I’ve grabbed aggro. Having them crit me.. and then hitting them for 30% of that damage will just push my aggro higher. I’m going to drop that in favor of Blessed Life in the Holy Tree.

Conviction improves my melee crit chance. It’s nice.. but I’m using more spells for hitting. I’d rather have more spell power and more spell crits. So I’m dropping that in favor of Improved Seal of Righteousness.

Proposed New Spec: 51/0/10

I’ll need another set of gear that focuses on +int +spell +spell crit and +sta. I think I’ll break that out in another posting.
