Leveling as Retribution, obviously. What else?
Level 20 brings some very important abilities into the arsenal of retribution Paladin. We see Consecration make an appearance, Exorcism rank 1 can be learned, and you can also talent Seal of Command. What does this all equal?
Complete and total WTF PWNAGE of undead, that’s what.
RIght after getting all these abilities, I went to do the “War on Deatholme” quests, which sends you to an area filled with Undead. Targeting my first mob, I got Seal of Command active, hit the undead thing with Exorcism, ran up, Hammer of Justice, Judged SoC…
And the mob was dead.
It was an equal level mob. That fight should have taken at least twenty seconds, not six.
So let’s take a look at the combat log.
Exorcism crits for 144 damage…. auto attack for 74 damage that procs Seal of Command for 51 damage… then judging SoC on the mob crits for a further 209 damage.
Uhm. So the Deatholme quest was very easy. Those poor undead sods knew exactly what hit them, and it hurt like only a Paladin smashing your skull in with a massive hammer can.
I think, once this Paladin gets up there, I might supremely enjoy questing in WPL and EPL, if I can still deal this ridiculous amount of damage by then.
Going away for the weekend, final family reunion before the matriarch kicks the bucket. She’s 95, and says that she is on her way out. Rock on, guys, I’ll see you Tuesday.
