I have a better suggestion. Bring back tier sets from all previous DF seasons for all classes in season 4 instead of this lazy approach. More variety is fun


People, stop voting for S2 and S3. They are awful tier sets in comparison to S1, which is MUCH stronger.

Here are the set effects:

2 Set - Judgment, Blade of Justice, and Wake of Ashes damage increased by 15%.
4 Set - Final Verdict, Templar’s Verdict, and Divine Storm damage increased by 10%

Numbers wise, this is our strongest set in this expansion.

2 Set - Judgment and Hammer of Wrath deal 10% increased damage and 20% increased critical strike damage. Hammer of Wrath applies Judgment to enemies.
4 Set - Judgment increases the damage enemies take from your Holy Power spenders by an additional 5%. Hammer of Wrath now hits four nearby enemies for 20% of its damage.

2 Set - Expurgation lasts an additional 3 sec and deals 30% increased damage. Casting Judgment or Divine Toll on a target with Expurgation causes Wrathful Sanction, damaging the target for a large amount of Holy damage and resonating half of that amount to up to 4 nearby enemies.
4 Set - Wrathful Sanction grants you Echoes of Wrath, causing your next Final Verdict or Divine Storm to deal damage a second time at 25% effectiveness. This effect does not consume Greater Judgment.


Would be nice if we could actually see the Set Bonuses. I don’t recall them at all!


To be honest, s1 for ret pala have best looklike and great set


its not so much about what is stronger its what feels more fun and makes the spec flow better. the dmg can always be adjusted to compete with other classes.


Our very, very basic rotation remained almost the same through all the DF seasons, with tiny changes. All 3 sets, in execution, are borderline the same. Our rotation is inherently very fluid. So we might as well take the best set. As for dmg adjustment? Nothing another 3% dmg buff won’t fix.

Vote season 1.
Season 2 and 3 dont rly change our gameplay in any fun or meaningful way.
Season 1 gives most dps and most freedom in talent choice. And its good in every aspect of the game such as raid/m+/pvp.


The season 3 2 set is actually really nice, if they could give it a better 4 piece then I think that would probably be the best.

Also the animation of the season 3 2 set giving the lich king animation is so cool

How about giving us a way to increase the ilvl of the legendary as well (the Dractyr one could use it as well)
As a paladin who still didn’t get the axe I’d hate to get it a week before S4 makes it obsolete


Stop that cringe challenge… its like a lot of PVE players…
Ret do pretty good dps in m+
But in PVP s2 was best, dont do s1 or s3.

all who write here are PVE PLAYERS

PVP RET NEED s2, he is B TIER NOW Dont do s…t


s2 was the best for PVP, so s1 and s3 is horrible for PVP

I don’t PvP, season 1 is awful.

So season 3.

Please do not be fooled by misinformation.


You mistake the fresh rework with the tier set.

Didn’t you read that they will adjust numbers?
of course i’m gonna vote for s3 ret pala bonus because it is the best one of them when it comes to gameplay
i literally couldn’t care less about passive %%% dmg increase


Power is not tuned yet. Gameplay is what you vote for.


Yep! And that is S3, looks cool with the Wrathful Sanction animation, you are literally pointing at the enemy with a golden sword, very judgemental as Ret should be. And the double Divine Storm is fun as well. It also feels and is powerful in both ST and AOE. And also has minor but fun gameplay built in. Other set just gives flat damage, or slightly stronger HoW, and a very low prio AOE button on execute mobs. Also S3 tier is versatile it has value in Aoe, cleave and ST. S2 tier only has value in ST, in aoe it is a very low prio button still and also 5 target capped. And that is not just numbers, it is objectively more fun to shoot 2 Divine Storms through a big mob pack than to hit 5 of them with Hammers. Don’t mistake Rets performance in S2 after the fresh rework with the tier set. It wasn’t the tier set that was fun.

Season 1 AMEN brother! its the only season that allowed us to play with any opener and rotation style we like! The damage will be great! Current season is awful due to having to play a certain way… ALL VOTE SEASON 1!
