I will execute great vengeance on them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I lay my vengeance upon them

Why another ret macro ?
After testing almost every retribution paladin macro on here all with their caveat’s and my own personal nitpickyness - I have to make one that is up to my playstyle :
- Mythic+ Dungeons
- Heroic Raids
- Multi-side Vision Clears
Two big reasons I created this one were:
- To end the weirdo pause in macro rotation others have
- Incorporate Divine Storm into the macro for the Azerite Trait : Empyrean Power (because I am kinda lazy and don’t want to put it in a MOD and have to manually do it)
And as of final testing today everything is working really good. Of course all these macros are in a continuous state of development so changes will // can be done in the future. Note: The addition of Divine Storm procs’ through Empyrean Power really help the flow of the auto rotation.
Normally here is where I would put links to my Raider.io and Warcraft Logs page(s) but as of writing Season 4 just started and I haven’t done any Mythic+ runs yet. So in the future this will be updated to reflect true world parses for comparison purposes.
Firing @ 50ms works the best for me. You may or may not have to adjust this.
Here are the [MODS] for both single-target and AOE versions of the macros.
/cast [mod:ctrl] Flash of Light
/cast [mod:shift] Avenging Wrath
/cast [mod:alt] Shield of Vengeance

My Stats and Talents
The SIM to view click here
There are two things to consider here when looking at the SIM:
- 3.2% of the damage was from Shield of Vengeance (the SIM adds damage that your own testing on a dummy will not - for a training dummy will NOT be damaging you)
- Picture perfect proc usage from the Azerite Trait Empyrean Power (my macro and seemingly NO macro will auto give you perfect PROC usage - aiming for ~ 5-10% is realistic)
So the only thing we can really negate from the OVERALL SIM numbers here is to subtract the Shield of Vengeance damage (3.2%) from the overall which gives us:
~ 30.5k DPS
Using that and a true ~5 minute test on the correct training dummy along with all PVP talents turned off we get a DPS Parse SIM of:
~ 94 %
More importantly lets look to see how accurate the macro did with the Empyrean Power proc to Divine Storm usage ratio:
So during the ~ 5 minute test dummy action Empyrean Power proc’ced 15 times ! And how many Divine Storms did he do ?
The macro initiated Divine Storm 14 times ! It missed one. Not too bad. Of course this is perfect world scenario the macro shoots for 5 -10 % over or under usage od Divine Storm. But thats (I think) about the best you can do give a fully auto implementation of that ability.
Anyway there it is. I mainly play the Paladin now so needed 3 good macros to do everything with. Lately I mainly use retribution in world questing because the rares in Uldum and the Vale just take too long to kill in Prot spec.
Leave a question below and I’ll do my best to answer it. If you leave a question like : It doesn’t work for me … to be honest I don’t know how to help you there.
Wanna see what it can do ??
