I wince at always seeing posts that specifically skip over Retribution Paladins.In this case, specifically because of Stormherald.It is simply the case, that ouside of being top ranked arena player, and end game raiding (T5+) it is the best PvE mace for a Ret. It is slow, so it proc's SoC at a decent rate, and if you get lucky with your stun proc, you may even be able to land a judgement in there.Stop passing over Ret's please. A good ret may be a dying breed, but we are still here.

She did the same thing last week.Some people are too stupid to get past 2006, I guess.

Yeah that happens everywhere, always plate and melee DPS comments are directed at warriors, I chose to craft lionheart executioner not knowing that the Stormherald was a superior choice for my ret pally, a lack of balanced information is just another of the issues that retribution paladins have to deal besides the usual "retlol" crap.

Actually, Lionheart Executioner is a good Ret pally weapon for Horde-side paladins with access to Seal of Blood, for PvE of course. Hold on to it for 3.0 when Alliance gets a similar seal ("Martyr" I think). The 100 Strength proc is a great dmg bonus, better than a Crusader enchant at 70 because it lessens in effect past lvl 60. All that Stam on Stormherald is wasted item budgeting for PvE. Plus the Executioner is faster which gives more Seal of Blood/Martyr damage, and your damage is more consistent and less RNG burst.
