Retribution is going to gain quite a few old talents as baseline abilities. You'll always have access to Aschewelle
, Hammer des Zorns
, and Wort der Herrlichkeit
albeit with some changes. Segen der Aufopferung
is a utility ability that we'll once again be able to use to either help save another player during periods of heavy damage or get maximum damage from Schild der Vergeltung
. Other than that, we're gaining Schild der Rechtschaffenen
which won't be used very often since it requires a shield equipped to use and many of our other abilities require a two-handed weapon to be cast, and Böses vertreiben
which is a single target fear that can be cast on Undead, Aberrations, and Demons.
Auras are also returning to Paladins. These are raid-wide buffs with a restriction that only one can be used at a time per Paladin. Multiple buffs of the same type don't stack. You'll want to make sure there's one Paladin using Aura der Hingabe
in your group, but if someone else has that buff covered feel free to use one of the other two. Aura der Konzentration
is also available in Shadowlands but can't be used during pre-patch due to its level requirement.
In place of the now-baseline talents, Retribution will have a lot of new (and some returning) talent options. Azerite Traits Himmlische Macht
and Erlass des Lichts
are being added as Himmlische Macht
and Geweihter Zorn
, giving us access to more cleave damage options. Seraphim
and Heiliger Rächer
both allow for more burst oriented builds on a 45 sec and 3-minute cooldown respectively. Letzte Abrechnung
is a brand new ability that does a large chunk of AoE damage and increases the damage that your other Holy Power spenders do to the targets, and is looking like an extremely potent option as well. On the defensive side of things, Heilende Hände
increases the healing potential of Wort der Herrlichkeit
massively and can be very strong if you don't mind spending some Holy Power on it rather than on your damaging abilities.
