Tips & tricks

  • Nothing is as devastating as running away with a few hundred health only to be tagged with a paladin's Hammer from long range.
  • There is no minimum range on the Hammer; it can be used at point-blank distance.
  • The attack is resolved as a ranged special-attack that does non-physical damage, similar to a Hunter's Arcane Shot. It can miss, it can be blocked (if the target is facing you), and it does double damage on a crit. Hit Rating and Crit Rating improve your chances of hitting and critting, respectively.
  • The Retribution-centric Tier 6 Paladin Armor Set Lightbringer Battlegear includes a 4-piece set ability that increases the damage dealt by your Hammer of Wrath ability by 10%.
