Viable 3v3 setups for retribution
Return to board index
My alt is decked out in only the finest

, so I'm guessing it's time to start practicing some arena and filling up on as many scrub points as I can.
My favourite arena bracket is 3v3, and obviously going for scrub points isn't going to require any great setups, but it's nice to get as many points as possible.
So, I ask you lovely retributors, what are the preferred set ups for 3v3s?
I was thinking teaming with either a resto druid and warlock might work well?

I run 3 vs 3 with Myself (ret), Holy pally, MS warrior. Not a bad setup. We are holding over 1500 at the moment and prospects are looking good for further advancement.
Resto shammy, MS warr and retridin works well aswell. Yay for windfury crits. =P
I would suggest you throw in a caster dps. If you cover your bases, you can melee their healer and !@#$ him off while the caster nukes em from a distance. You have to have a good mage if you go that route. I currently have 3v3 comp of MM hunter/holy pally/ frost mage, and even though the frost mage isn't very high on the resil tree, he does some major damage. Well timed counter spells and ice blocks are a very good thing, not to mention the absolute deletion of plate in the equation for burning those pesky ms wars and ret pally's. We are all S1 and below (I, holy pally, have only 1 piece of non pvp/arena left to earn tho, so maybe I'm above s1...) and currently sit at 1600+, so you can see the value of good distance dps. Having BoF and BoP available for your dist dps to kite bad situations is always a bonus, along with 2 cleansing toons. Having a ret pally and holy pally in the same group for a 3v3 would be uber. Throw in a rogue to control and aid in nuking the healer, or caster dps for straight up hard core nuking and your looking at a good group.
Cheers guys, will give these all a try if I can :)
the biggest downfall of a ret paladin is that they lack interrupts in arenas, they're pretty good at everything else
so you need a class that makes up for that
as with the case of "shamadin" (a 2v2 movie featuring an enchancement shaman and a ret paladin) shamans make a great addition to back up a paladin, and if the shaman is elemental or enchancement, that means that your last class has to a healer, but with all 3 classes being able to heal, the type isn't too important
however, if the shaman is restoration, then for windfury, i'd go with a rogue or a MS warrior for the 3rd member
just my take on the subject
