So i've been playing ret for a while now and i really like it. I really enjoy the burst which is fantastic and i love the support role we have. I've been playing all arenas and my favorite is 2v2. So my question to all you elitists out there is: Which partner is best for a ret?

i think rogue is very good. but you 2 need to have a good Comunication ,to manage CCs and things in time etc.

DK Dps
Disc Priest-maybe.
MAge -idk in 4.3 pre 4.3 Mage Retri did pretty well really.

Rets usually work well with resto shamans, feral druids, frost death knights and i personally also worked well with a frost mage. But Retri's also work well with Warriors or rogues anyway.

Any kind of double dps team in my opinion.

Ofc Ret/healer can work well too, but expect long battles (Really long battles), when you face another dps/healer team.

Mage, Shadow Priest and Rogue are my favorites.

Playing with healers is just poor play and horribly boring.

Agreed. Pretty much stopped playing 2s after around 1600, cause each game was a 40-min boredom vs some healer + dps combo and I really hate this.

Double ret is viable in 2s. You heal each other for imba heals. Double rep and hoj for cc while you blow up ppl.

Ret/rogue, ret/mage, ret/hunter, ret/dk are all good.

If you want to play with a healer go for a disc priest.

Disc priests have good cc (fear mindcontrol) and you can rep and hoj after while he has potent dps to help land a kill. CC healer kill dps. If anything he can mana burn the other healer and win the mana war.

Well i've been playing with a buddy who is rogue. But the problem is that we cant get over 1700 rating. Up to 1700 we can just nuke all the healers, but I need some tips cause as soon we are up to some healer+dps team with 1800+ mmr we are screwed. And by tips i mean like what to cc and when? When do we burst and who should we attack?

It really depens on what you face. Sometimes the DPS is squishier than the healer and so forth. Dont be hesitant to just CC healer and go for DPS (and forcing CDs+trinket) and then hoj+rep on DPS while you rape the healer.

almost any combo works if you know your weaknesses and strengths and play the game that way. Obviously alot of practice is a must to be able to perform well on higher ratings.

what is ret / unholy DK like? I imagine if the ret burst + unholy dk bursts are timed together there would be absolute carnage. Unholy DK burst is best in the game these days.

I once played ret/enhance earlier this expansion for fun, very annoying to play against!

If a resto druid go for him.
If a resto shaman avoid.
If a disc with either mage or rogue, go for them, if with something else, go for the healer.
If a holy paladin, cc him and go all out on dps. 1st cc (rep) he will go through most likely, 2cc(blind) he will trinket, 3rd cc (HoJ in most cases) he will bubble. Wait for blind/rep/hoj and repeat. The dps should be dead by the time rep ends.

I play the same comp (started 3 days ago) and so far the only thing we lose to (we still haven't figured out how to kill them properly) is rogue/disc, mage/priest (shadow or disc).

We did figure that we can start on mage, try to force the trinket and or pain sup during the first smokebomb, vanish from rogue, open up with garrote while I have cds up under a smokebomb. I HoJ the mage, he can't blink due to garrote and we pretty much nuke him then. If it doesn't work, well, you just los like a baws and wait for CDs again (took us 3 tries to kill that setup yday)

If I figure something else out I'll come post it.

If anyone knows any other solutions I'm willing to listen :)

I prefer;
Ret/Feral
Ret/Fmage
Ret/Rogue
Ret/Hunter

E-Z mode with Rogues and Feral druids and Frost mages and DKs are always nice too. ;-)

Retribution is perfect with Hunter or Shadow Priest.....if yo ugo with a healer yo uwil lpropably need 20 min for a game if you fight against a other healer/dps combo. Personaly i think since Ret's are of-healer they should play with another Damage Dealer class.
