Best Legendaries for Retribution Paladin in 9.1
The new Covenant Legendaries are definitely interesting options, with the new Kyrian one, Divine Resonance
, looking likely to be very strong.
- For Kyrian, Divine Resonance is likely to now be the best Legendary in most Raiding and Mythic+ situations.
- For Night Fae and Necrolord, Final Verdict is the best Legendary for single target.
- For Night Fae, Necrolord, and Venthyr in a mixture of single target and cleave, and also for Venthyr on single target, The Mad Paragon is the best Legendary.
- For pure AoE, Tempest of the Lightbringer is the best Legendary for all Covenants.
New Covenant Legendaries for Retribution Paladin
Divine Resonance - Outside of pure AoE situations, this is likely to be a very competitive Legendary for Kyrian, if not the best. There's not much downside to crafting this early.
- Seasons of Plenty - It's difficult to evaluate this Legendary in a vacuum, since it'll usually be better to use this to buff another player's damage rather than your own. You'll only get to use one buffed Blessing of Summer every 3 minutes, and that doesn't line up with Avenging Wrath. That said, if you're staying Night Fae then it's a good option to have available, even if you won't use it as frequently.
- Radiant Embers - The cooldown reduction portion of this Legendary only causes it to desync with Avenging Wrath, and the 50% increased duration just isn't as strong as other options for Venthyr. This Legendary currently isn't worth crafting.
