Level 100 Retribution Paladin Guide [PvE]

A World of Warcraft Class Guide, Updated to Patch 7.0.3

DPS Rotation & Cooldowns for Retribution Paladin in PvE | Latest Patch 7.0.3

The following rotation guide was developed through extensive simulations and play testing with the goal of keeping the guide as simple as possible without sacrificing performance. This guide also included AoE rotations and provides details on when to use special talents and cooldowns.

Single Target Rotation

DPS Priority: Execute this priority for optimal DPS.

  1. Templars Verdict with >= 5 Holy Power.
  2. Judgment to apply its debuff.
  3. Blade of Justice with 3 or less Holy Power.
  4. Crusader Strike with 4 or less Holy Power.

The Retribution Paladin rotation involves building and spending Holy Power. Build Holy Power with Blade of Justice and Crusader Strike. Be careful to not overcap your Holy Power. Spend Holy Power on Templars Verdict. Prioritize Holy Power builders over Templars Verdict unless you have 5 Holy Power. And, remember to maintain the potent debuff from Judgment at all times.

AoE Rotation

The Retribution Paladin AoE rotation is very similar to the single target rotation with the exception of using Divine Storm as your Holy Power spender instead of Templars Verdict.


Information on how to incorporate the selected talents from this guide into your rotation is currently being re-worked for 7.0.3. Check back later!

    Effective Cooldowns

    These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.
