I think all you QQers about ret dps is rather ignorant to put it mildly. I AM a 85 ret dps and i do just fine being competitive on the top spot on the meters. Anyone that isnt 85 yet i remind you, plz, remember that as you level your hit and expertise requirements change as you do so. SO your dps is going to go up and down as you level and change gear. Till you hit 85 and get capped properly.Now if you are 85 and still having troubles i ask you this. . is inquisition up 100 percent? Are you using zealotry properly. For those that find themselves lost with nothing to push i bet money you had forgotten these along the way. Another thing trash dps rotation is different from single target rotations. . i know thats a stretch for some of you rets but wrath is over.So remember inquisition is just like rogues slice and dice if it falls off so does your dps, use your cds properly instead of popping them poorly. And guardian of anicent kings is absolutely baller. Those that are leveling have patience your day may come.

What's a good rotation for trash mobs? I noticed it's good to use avenging wrath and zealotry at different times, so start off with either or and then as soon as one goes down use the other? Is this what you do?

For aoe damage of 4+ mobs i usually consecrate from the start ( before you start blazin me, at 85 you are going to have 20k+ mana so shush) which allows the tank to get aggro then divine storm > holy wrath, any 3 stack of Holy power should go into inquision > TV for filler > then hammer of wrath to finish. Now you have to think backwards for aoe dps. . forget CS and DS on cd followed by HW and fill with judgement to keep your mana going for HW and consecrate. The most important thing about trash dps is that you have to know when to switch gears. When the 4th mob dies you have to be ready to switch back into single target dps mode otherwise that nice meter topping aoe dps starts to fall down the list.Not saying this is the best way but what i use is a version of this:-->3hp IQ >start conse>DS>HW>TV>HamW>Judge>Dplea

Most of the QQ is not about PvE DPS, but about shitty gameplay design and PvP burst ability. Saying its possible to do good PvE dps with the Whack-a-Cooldown system doesn't negate the criticisms that our slot machine mechanics aren't fun.
