Rextroy returns with a Paladin one-shot that eliminates opponents with a single button press.

Background:

This combo is quite tricky to figure out, but it works amazingly when it does! It is built around Recompense, a paladin talent that stores 50% of the damage that sacrifice redirected to you. Your next Judgment or Word of Glory then uses it up.

It is capped at 30% of your maximum health, however before a hotfix during early November, this snapshotted, meaning that if you were able to have A LOT of health and stack up Recompense temporarily, it would stay at a high number once your health went back down again!

So with this knowledge, we used one of the most powerful health increases in the game, the Tidal Surge buff from Throne of the Tides!

This made our health go upwards of 700k, which would cap Recompense at 210k damage on your next Judgment… in case we were able to redirect 420k damage from sacrifice…

This might seem impossible in a low-level dungeon, but an old item that used to screw me over actually helped us for once! The Precious Bloodthorn Loop

This self-inflicted damage will scale with the 2000% damage boost from Neptulon, it also counts as redirected damage with sacrifice…

This combo is by far one of my favorites, since it all works out so well, and the result is hilarious.

Also, did you know… since recompense doesn’t show up as a buff, it won’t be cleared when entering an arena!? so Panic and I tried this out and managed to one-shot the enemy team within 0.5 seconds… quite hilarious

(Keep in mind, this was only attempted in arena during off-season, since there aren’t any gains to be had, otherwise, we would try it in a Wargame)

You don’t have to fear this happening to you, it already got fixed back in early November! Surprisingly I didn’t even have time to report it before the fix, so Blizzard actually managed to figure this one out on their own, or it got reported by someone…

I hope you all enjoyed it! Thanks for watching, and stay tuned for more
