I agree with almost everything you said here except the last part about the Retribution Aura.I wont talk about PvP because i don't engage in any PvP so i wont pretend to know anything about its nuances, but from a PvE standpoint that talent is completely useless, which might be your point i don't know. The part where you talk about the ability proccing off of Ret Aura dealing damage is counter-intuitive to everything you want in a raid. The Ret paladin should not be taking direct hits from anything in a raid environment. We all know theres a lot of raid damage to go around these days but that doesnt trigger Ret Aura.

I think what he means by having Retribution Aura dealing damage is by any player that has the Ret Aura on them at any one time. So, in theory, when your tank is getting hit and because he has your Ret Aura on him, and it deals damage, this could proc so /you're/ Crusader Strike is off cool down. It's an interesting idea, because just as you said in PVE the Tank should be the only one taking damage, and so this would proc only when the Boss hits him, and in Arena it would only proc when either you or your partner(s) get hit.I think perhaps the only problem is when your doing PVP in say Battlegrounds or 3v3, 5v5. With all those players under your Ret Aura affect, this proc would be going off way too often. Perhaps a simple internal cool down on it?Or maybe I'm just imagining things, and being stupid. I have no idea.
