    Default How to Learn a Class

    I just got the Scroll of Resurrection so I am a fresh high level Ret Pally. Now my question is where can I go to learn the rotations and tactics? I don't want to be a complete noob.

    Elitistjerks.com should give you a break down of what you need, but the best thing to do is find a guildy who knows what they're talking about and sit down with them for 10 minutes or so.

    I'm sure we have a ret pally or 2 somewhere

    Once you know what you should be doing, just practice practice practice

    Elitist jerks [url]http://elitistjerks.com/[/url]

    They tell you everything you need to know from talents to glyphs to rotation.

    Also, ask in guild we all have a lot of alts so even if one of your class isnt online, ask as someone will probably be able to help


    Akee beat me to it

    Once you've got rotations and specs down, the next most important thing at max level is gearing - stat priorities and caps, gemming, etc. But while you're levelling up from 80-85, that's not too important. Go to the practice dummies in Orgrimmar, and give them what-for until you're reasonably confident in your rotation and how your abilities interact with each other, then dive into some dungeons.

    Your dps may be low. This will partly be due to inexperience, but mostly due to the fact that mobs die too quickly for you to get the full benefit of your rotation, so don't be discouraged by that. The rotations you'll see on sites like EJ are designed for raid bosses, which last a lot longer. Prioritise area of effect abilities on trash, and practice your main rotation on bosses. And, if possible, group with guildies who'll be happy to give you pointers specific to those dungeons, so you can concentrate less on what to avoid and more on using your class's abilities to the fullest.

    The mmo-champion forums are another option for guides. Sometimes it's just a copy paste of elitist jerks, but in some cases there are guides on there for things EJ doesn't do so well or at all.

    For a Ret pally the simple rotation is

    Crusader's Strike
    Judgement
    Crusader's Strike until 3 Holy Power then;
    - 1 If Inquistion not up, cast Inquisition
    - 2 If Inquistion up, Zeoltry
    - 3 If Zelotry and Inquistion is up, Templar's Verdict.

    For more than two adds use Holy Storm (AoE) instead of Crusader's. If something starts flashing hit it. End level Retribution starts to become like whack-a-mole. Pop wings when you feel like it and cast Consecration at the start if it looks like it'll last longer than 15 seconds.

    This may or may not be the best but it'll serve ya lovely

    Cheers.

    Someone in the guild recommended Noxxic too which I have found rather helpful. I think I've now got a better grasp on the mechanics as I'm not running out of mana AND killing thing.
