It's been while I've played a ret. Does nobody use selfless healer anymore?

I only use sacred shield cus its a lot stronger vs. the current purge meta thats ruling the game ... I bet ret lock sham (retls) & rdru/mage/ret could be sort of strong if played right. PHS still the strongest!

Faced some Ret/DK/Hpally yesterday (only at 2k mmr tho), we played Demo LSD1. First game we won after maby 40 sec. 2nd game they won witinh 30sec (killed our drood) then the other 2 times we faced them we won but the games went on for maby 6-8min and they were close. Every grip into hoj on our healer is trinkets from us. Something they did good in the two last games was that they farmed my pet and sat me alot so i was forced to insta summon a pet delaying my dmg alot.

In short i think that comps work but its prolly not the best. PHS tho... /puke, that shit got some dmg :P

I guess that Ret/Hunter/R.Shaman (aka Cupid Cleave?) is probably your best bet. As Retbrah said above, I also think that Ret/Mage/R.Druid could work, but good luck finding a good Mage/Druid willing to give up his RMD dream in order to play with a Ret. :/

Vanguards said on his Facebook page that he run Ret/Dk/H.Pala + Ret/Fire Mage/R.Shaman to 2.4+k the other day, if I remember well, but I am not sure if that's because of the playstyle difference that EU and US have. Though I am afraid it might probably be it... :S

EDIT: PHP might also work with the new Ret and Disc buffs plus the new gear scaling, but Disc is a much less forgiving healer than a R.Shaman is.

Because the random name generator might pump out Lortfanden, which sounds like a pretty generic fantasy Warrior name in English, until you realize it means "Shit Fuck" in Danish.

Exactly.. Ret Mage RDruid is an okay substitute for Ret Hunter, but no druid or mage will want to run that when they could get a rogue and be +300 rating. It also works well with Arcane. There are guaranteed sheeps every hoj because of evanescence. The comp is actually powerful in certain matchups.

Ret DK and Ret Hunter are your best bets. Hunters are pretty weak right now, so Ret DK is actually better in some matchups.

I tried Ret/Enh and Ret/Feral this season but it felt really outclassed by other cleaves like Turbo and WW/DK.

I prefer combat because my dong is large and I will face the enemy like a man rather than sprint over to a pillar for a re after my opener is up.


sorry, I don't speak duellist

Hey Aveng! :D :D Always nice seeing you active here since other high rated Rets don't really post on AJ! :(

Btw some random thought. Do you guys think Ret/WW/x could work?

thanks for the replies all, think I may just roll holy this season tbh, finding teammates will most certainly be a pain in the ass as ret compared to holy. Hopefully ret will be more fun and have a distinct place in 3s in legion because atm they just seem like a worse feral druid

played that in cata first week of the first season. Was really fun back then. Even oneshotted a Holypal before he could bubble back then. Strategy to this comp is that you just aim for your kill windows every 2 Minutes and other than that Mage just tries to control and you as ret do your best to support your priest with offhealing, freedoms etc.

Clear downside is, that you wont have enough pressure in between damage cooldowns to actually force their cooldowns, and thus the status quo just resets every 2 minutes. If you and the mage are not absurdly good at timed bursts, i dont see this comp really work compared to current matchups.

Gearing my ret atm and playing divine purpose with FV and deep mastery/versa for fun atm.(Awesome for rbg tho!) Wanna try retLS with that as soon as i find mates that are willing to try. It just feels so much better not to rely on HA with Wings every 2 minutes to deal some decent damage.
