    Default Icon Team - 5 Pallie (1 Prot, 4 Ret)

    Here's a Maw+2 3 chest. 10:23 was my time. This is my faster group ATM, but I'm pretty sure my hunter group will dethrone them soon.

    Wonderful work.

    I've been trying to decide my next team, it seems we have many viable options for mythics now.

    The ret DPS is quite good compared to prot. I prefer a single target spec on them right now. You drop your focused mob ridiculously fast and still do a lot of AoE damage while you're at it. As 5 x prot I was dropping all of the trash around the same time, which was fine because you can handle the extra damage, but if there's one mob that has a mechanic (like fear) in the group, they'll die within the initial avenger's shield silence w/ 4 rets.

    I prefer ranged for fun factor though, and hunters are just so strong like they are made for boxing. So if you don't have a hunter team yet, that would be my top recommendation (all 5 or 4 + 1 heal). Managing movement for those gtfo of the fire mechanics is just so much easier when you're ranged.

    Boomies are also kind of fun, but in a weird way. You always end up in melee regardless, and the treants, while very handy, aren't consistent in taking aggro off you. They lack the hunter burst, so you take a beating, and they can't move out of mechanics as well (stellar drift minimizes this problem though). Once they're geared I'm going to try and drop the resto for a 5th boomie and see if I can keep up with the damage just using their crap boomy heals. I don't think they'll ever be able to handle +15s though.

    I am curious how you survived, I did try 4 frost, but i am guessing its more healing available.

    Word of Glory is OP for a 5 boxer . Also Kings, Shield of Vengeance, HoP from tank, and even FoL if you get in trouble... then there's your bubbles and LoH. I mean pally survivability and utility is ridiculous.

    I really enjoyed the Retx4 and 1 Prot, until they changed Kings in a patch maybe 2 months ago? It was much strongers since you could cast 3 of them, I was able to have 4 sets of kings on my tank, and 2 on each Ret. This was a massive absorb that took out all of the dot damage or random splash damage and made the grind much smoother.
    What is your Ilvl? I also ran into an issue where I couldn't seem to get the Ret DPS up high enough to my liking.

    Yes the multi-kings was pretty broken IMO. I don't use ret for progression, just for 3 chesting. They definitely are not nearly as durable as 5 prots, and can be a pita if you take a lot of AoE damage.

    I'm around 870+ ilvl on them. My leader (prot) is a bit higher. They're falling behind since 7.1.5 as I've been messing with my hunters and boomies mostly.

    Here's a BHR+2 3 chested. They are a pretty fun comp. Far more enjoyable than 5 x Prot IMO, and pretty great survivability thanks to dropping entire pulls during Blinding Light stuns (crazy OP).

    Are you still running the druids or hunters more and is your hunter team still hunters and 1 shaman?

  10. #10


    Yes, I'm running all 3, but mostly focusing on the hunters + shammy. The druids are my gathering team (herb and mine) to pay for the subs. The pallies were my first team so I play them for the weekly cache and if there's an event (also might do 5 holy in raid finder).
