Does any of this need to be updated with 2.4.1 having come out now and 2.4.2 on its way?

It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.

First, Stask necroed it, not EB. Second, it's a relevant bump due to the changes in 2.4.2.

However, the comment EB replied to is rather old, so /shame on EB for not looking at dates.

Stask, to answer your question, the only significant change in 2.4.2 is that it is now viable to use Seal of the Crusader with Crusader Strike - specifically, SotC no longer reduces CS's effectiveness by 40%. I have updated the OP to reflect this. If you have a fast weapon, SotC may actually be more viable now than Seal of Command - but if you have a fast weapon as Retribution, you suck.

Also, I corrected an old error regarding Crusader Strike - it deals Physical damage, not Holy, meaning that it is affected by armor mitigation. Executioner becomes an even better Retribution enchant when you take this fact into account.

Also, EB was saying last night that was a better PVE weapon than for ret pallies. Seeing as how you and Holydude (the only PVE retadins I know of) both have Stormherald, I'm skeptical of EB's claim.

P.S. What's "necroing" a thread? I merely made a new reply to an old thread. In essence, I brought a dead thread to life, not killing a live thread. Technically, that's resuccitation, not necrotization. Methinks you computer geek types need to lern2language, kthnx. :-P

Lionheart is faster, meaning less powerful Seal of Command and Crusader Strike hits, but has very slightly better stats. Stormherald wastes some itemization points on the stun proc, which doesn't work on bosses and is generally unreliable in PvE (although if you watch for it to go off, you can get in a nice Judgement of Command on trash mobs without burning a stun).

The difference among these two weapons, Gorehowl, and the Hammer of the Naaru is only a few DPS, so it's hardly worth having a big argument over. The ideal Retribution weapon is 3.8 speed (or slower, but there's only one 4.0 weapon in the game), has Strength, Agility (or crit rating), and Stamina; and optionally adds some more stats like sockets or Intellect. Remember that the itemization formula rewards items that spread their points among multiple stats instead of dumping them all in one place.

Lastly, a Human Paladin should prefer swords or maces because of the racial Expertise bonus.

And Stask, dear Stask... "necro" in this case means "necromancy", as in "bringing back from the dead". You disappoint me, young Padawan.
