wow paladin icon Retribution Paladin Glyphs

Posted by Khor | 7/17/2009

Glyphs in World of Warcraft have become an important part of the game. The major glyphs are considered the essential ones, especially in raiding and PvP. You can have up to 3 major glyphs equipped.

Minor glyphs are what I like to consider the cosmetic glyphs, in the sense that most of them are based on user preference, not actual need. Some minor glyphs have major functions, but others are trivial and minor, and have no affect on PvP or raiding gameplay.

Here are the main glyphs you should have as a retribution paladin (updated for patch 3.2):

  1. [Glyph of Judgement] This glyph is a must have, hands down. Judgments are vital to our dps, so don't leave this one out.
  2. [Glyph of Consecration] Now your second best glyph, helping conserve mana and normalizing the FCFS rotation.
  3. [Glyph of Seal of Vengeance] Since Seal of Blood/Martyr is gone, this is what takes its place. This gives a nice expertise boost at 10 expertise (82 rating, 2.5%). If lready expertise capped, move right along to Glyph of Exorcism.
  4. [Glyph of Exorcism] A solid boost to DPS, even though Exorcism is at the end of our FCFS rotation.

Here are the minor glyphs, although they do not serve near the tremendous impact that the main glyphs do.

  1. [Glyph of Sense Undead] Ulduar has no undead, but the extra 1% has PvE written all over it.
  2. [Glyph of Lay on Hands] The only othe semi-useful PvE minor glyph.
