hey folks,

topic titel says all, what do you think?
I've played ret/warri/disc yesterday and it feels kinda stupid, due to the fact, that i was focused all the time. Running around the pillar and waiting for cd's isn't fun at all.


sorry for any english misstakes!

Ive played some Vanguardscleave (UhDK, priest) and it works fine. Hunter ret priest is fine aswell. You will almost always be the target though, no matter which comp you play.

PHP is viable but not on higher.. Warrior is better dps than ret in all aspects.

ret, shamen (ele or enh) priest can work well mostly because you are not the only utility. this is why pallies get trained. our utility on ourselves is rather crap, but excellent on other people and your enemy knows this. having another hybrid with you keeps the pressure off when you are being trained.
consider SS for comps with no purge, as the absorbs will make a significant difference to your survival.

I can confirm ret/warr/holy and ret/warr/disc are pretty depressing.  Ret/hunter/holy and the disc version is much better, still quite strong.  Ret/boomkin/holy is kinda amusing -- you can set up 40 sec cc chains easily, as long as the ret is ready to solo someone.  It's probably not that competitive though. I will check on the ret + priest + ww or dk comps in the near future.

i still would say ret,ele,priest is my favourite comp for ret in 5.4 i tryed some ret,dk,priest,ret,rogue,priest and php but dont enjoy them as much i use to.I heard ret,mage,priest and ret,ww,priest would be good aswell but haven't tryed those comps yet. But so far ele,ret,priest seem to work fine against most comps. Rmp still pretty hard to play against but kfc,tsg (cleaves overall) kinda flop against us.

I've play only ret/warrior/Dpriest or Rdrood and this comp is weak I'm the only focus and it's really hard for the paladin versus warrior.

I'll try Ret/dk/heal (or ret/mage) and I still play ret hunter maybe.

rets can only play with the same classes ever season and thats just the way it is,so this is it if u want high ratin,play with a hunter mybe dk thats it,the rest of the classes will work till u come vs people with a brain and they will fuck ur comp over if u play with any other class

note sure if troll...

in terms of the healer, that usually changes with patches due to blizzard making such significant adjustments each patch. rsham and hpriest are now the strongest healers in pvp, this is a big reason why vanguards cleave is still viable.

I haven't played Ret a whole lot but the games I did play (during the first week) of Ret/Mage/Disc felt pretty good. Pretty fun comp imo as you're not always the one getting trained and there's plenty of room to use turn evil. Feels kind of weaker against wizards/rot comps though.

We tried ret/mage/priest and and feels OK, just have to play super defensive between bursts.  Now that everyone (read:warriors) has weapons ret/hunter/priest doesn't feel nearly as good...

I'm curious why rshammys aren't looked at as ret partners? Since repentance was removed to talents,  there is no more dr within shamy/pally combo, except of Condensator? As for 5.4 with Turn evil option, I would love to see how ret/rshammy/muti rogue can work. Any thoughts?
P.S. Sorry for my language.

^(Condensator=capacitor in case anyone was wondering)

I think it would depend a lot on what the other dps is, since ret peels are somewhat limited compared to other classes.

Turn evil is awful as ret since you're tunneled 90% of the time, it isn't even particularly good as holy because of it's range.
