Should I delay Avenging Wrath/Crusade for BL/Hero?

Possibly. If delaying Crusade causes you to miss an opportunity to cast an additional Crusade it is not worth it. Go reread the Avenging Wrath/Crusade section.

What is our stat priority? What about our Pawn string?

We do not have a stat priority. You should be simming gear choices to determine what provides the most DPS. A written guide on how to do so for RaidBots here: Raidbots Written or a video guide by Thete here: Raidbots Video.

How do I tell what gear to wear?

We recommend using the SimC addon and using the "Top Gear" option on Raidbots to see which gear provides the highest DPS.

Can you include encounter specific tips?

Mythic Uldir Ret Paladin Quick Tips.

Which talents do I run in Mythic+?

Zeal will be better on Fortified weeks and RV may be useful on Tyrannical. BoW and HoW are both very competitive and you can go with what you like to use more. Consecration can be good on small consistent pulls and Wake will be better on large pulls. Divine Purpose is good all around and Crusade is very strong with large pulls.

How do I sim for Mythic+?

On Raidbots change your "Fight Style" drop-down to "DungeonSlice (BETA)". This is a much more accurate representation of Mythic+ than "Hectic Add Cleave".

Do I use Divine Storm on 2 Targets now?

Divine Storm is a DPS increase on 2 Targets. The exception to this is when you use Righteous Verdict. If you find yourself using Divine Storm often you should switch to Zeal. If there is a High Priority Target that needs to die ASAP you should use Templar's Verdict.

But “xyz” said 25% haste!

That isn’t a question. Also. NOOOOOO.

Does Haste reduce downtime?

No. It does not. Our abilities take a set number of Globals to come off of CD and both CDs and the Global scale with Haste evenly until 100% Haste which you hit the 0.75s GCD cap. After 100% Haste further Haste would reduce your downtime but this level of Haste is not achievable based on gear alone.

So, what is the minimum amount of haste I should have?

There is no minimum nor maximum haste.

Do I use Potion of Bursting Blood or Battle Potion of Strength?

Battle Potion of Strength on average is better than Potion of Bursting Blood in ST. Battle Potion of Strength is always stronger in AoE.

What are the best Paladin races for Alliance and Horde?

Races are very close in Single Target scenarios and generally you should not frustrate yourself by not being the highest simming race. Light Forged Draenei is the best simming race for the Alliance as well as the strongest race overall for AoE and Blood Elf is the best simming race for the Horde at this time.

Does Zeal increase the Proc chance of AoW/BoW?

No. AoW/BoW are RPPM which is only affected by Haste and not attackspeed.

Do Azerite Traits stack?

The Damage or Stat gain provided by Azerite does stack. The proc chance, duration, stacks gained or other parts of the trait do not stack. Dagger in the Back will gain more damage, Relentless Inquisitor will provide more Haste and Zealotry will provide more damage but the total number of times they can stack, the number of stacks you gain nor the duration will increase with multiple pieces.

Why is Torrent of Elements not good for Ret?

It is intended for casters so it has reduced RPPM for melee.
