The talent build in original post is ok, but not that accurate.I have been using similar build for half year now, and before tbc for much longer.Wearing full plate and 1k of spell dmg.Biggest mistake is lack of imp sor points. thats 5 points = 2 from loh, 2 from bow, and 1 from "faster holy light" buff talent. On ret side, i had soc for long time, but never used it so I removed it. Instead of parry use imp sotc. 5% melee crit talent - while not as useful as spell crit, it does increase slightly your dps in pve dps -role (5men/kara) Also, hammer of wrath is based on melee crit, and thats still the highest dmg spell you have. (when it crits) With the upcoming buff (0.5sec cast) it will be even more usefulFirst, you shouldn't wear cloth/leather/mail. Yes it might bring your dmg a bit higher but your usual customers like warriors, rogues or anxious feral kittens will cut you in pieces way faster then you can kill them.Same like with retribution armor, only quality, complete gear for this build can be found in honor rewards/ arena. Yes rings/capes/trinkets/neck you can find wherever but armor with spell crit (and for ret with melee crit) is only accessible from pvp side. In that way ret build is even in better situation since at least it has a tier sets that you can take.For the end, One trinket I picked up in kara that i really like is lightning capacitator. http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28785Since the shockadins favorite trinket six demon bag is getting a nerf (no scaling with spell dmg) I find this one to be rather nice addition for you situational burst output in pvp. It does scale with AW and bg dmg buffs. Can crit up to 2k, and can be timed with carefull use of divine favour.
