Possible Shockadin Build
Return to board index
I'm looking at this build for PvP purposes mainly, as well as doing preraid pve (casual stuff like reputation grinding, dailies, heroics, etc.). However the main purpose of this build would be pvp. I was thinking it would work to do some quick damage, and then sustain some good 2Hand Melee. The only thing I question is sacraficing survivability out of the protection tree usually taken by Retadins just to get Holy Shock, when Crusader Strike could do a fine job.
Take a look and tell me what you think.
Personally, I would take Fanaticism. With it, if my math is right, you're looking at like a base, what, 63% judgement crit chance?
Also, Shockadins are traditionally sword-and-board dudes.
Idk, i'll prolly crack the math a little later. I think the pts are right (i.e, all ret besides Holy 'til Holy Shock), but they could be shifted a little bit in each tree. However, pvp is by no means my forte....I'll hit ya back with some mathage, just lemme go study exams :)
Improved BoW and Blessed Hands? 5/5 Spiritual Focus will save you in PvP especially if you are using Ret Aura.
You won't have Sheath of Light in retribution, so you won't gain spell power from attack power making wielding a 2hander senseless. Your melee will suck due to no Crusader Strike/Divine Storm and your Holy Shocks will suck due to no spell power. You certainly don't want to wear a mixture of plate dps and plate spell power gear. I've conluded this build is ^&*!.
No Vindication nor Eye for an Eye? Essential PvP talents. Improved Ret Aura? Just no. Also Art of War is pointless when you don't have 2 out of the 3 ability which trigger it.
is more like it if you want a more bias towards ret, i.e. Judgement of the Wise/Repentence/Vengeance.
I agree with spikeh. Shockadin died with patch 3.x. Removal of sanctity aura, Spellpower coefficients being nerfed for seals and judgements, most offensive abilities stacking better from AP, ret and prot are fixed. If you want burst and some limited healing ability go ret. As far as your build goes you're missing out on SPH from holy guidance. You have Judgements of the wise, are you planning on stacking INT and SPH or AP? Either way you're losing out on alot of potential damage from the other source.
Thanks for the feedback. I'm sad that the shockadin is dead before I got a chance to try it out. On the bright side, I really don't have problems, as a retadin, in 1 on 1 pvp, against any particular class.
