Assuming I’m reading this correctly, you want to use Pelagos for Retribution, and then whatever the optimizer wants for Protection. To do this, you can click anywhere on the row of icons representing the soulbind/conduit solution after optimizing, then click on Pelagos, then click Lock Path. This will force the optimizer to use Pelagos, but let it pick whatever path and conduits. You can also lock a specific path or conduits if you want, but that’s all you have to do to force just the soulbind.
Then when I go to Protection and optimize, it also wants to use Pelagos. The path it chooses does not conflict with your Retribution path, so you can use the same one for both. The optimizer just thinks that Pelagos is strong even if the retribution potency conduits don’t do much for you as protection.
You can lock a different soulbind for protection and let it pick a path/conduits if you prefer, in the same way that you locked one for retribution.
Let me know if that answers your question and does what you want.
