Trying to figure out which class to level as my alt and im hearing that ret paladins have finally arrived this season and that their damage is really good but survivability is still lacking. Is this true?

Not even close, but they could use a slight nerf.

What was so special about S5-6 for rets? I don't remember them being particularly notable back then.

I can think of a lot of other classes/specs/comps that were OP then, but Rets weren't a part of any of that.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

ahahahaahahahahahaahahahahahahaha

a ) They reduced all your stats by 15% including stamina
b ) They could chain crit for 5-6k
c ) They could go through damage reduction effects with wings, rendering many defensive cooldowns useless
d ) They were the only melee class on par with dks in s5 and one of the best in s6, on par with dks and warriors

So they were quite op

Or maybe they could buff healing so a resto druid with full hots and barksin in treeform spamming regrowth doesnt get solo'd by rets without them even being in melee range

We had some 3s matches yesterday and when we got close to a loss I yelled, pulled every cd I got and fucked someone over. Dmg is more than just good, but as said survivability still sucks, even with dp in a deep or kidney or whatever you just take it deep. As long as survivability isn't going to get buffs the dmg is needed in my opinion.

Ah yea that seal. Forgot about that. Honestly I never played with one and only played against a few (best one played RetMP). DKs stick out to me a LOT more than old Rets.

But yea they did need to be toned down after all that. It just wasn't something that defined either season for me.

They have good damage, but they are squishy. So if you are good enough to predict swaps/100-0 situations and you are able to respond to that. You should be fine.

They could do 25+k dmg in 1 gcd. People had 25ish +k hp in that season

Judgement+melle hit+2sob procs+trinket proc = 25+k dmg in 1 gcd if everything crits
I had a ss globaling rubido 100-0 in 1 gcd :P

how do you think other classes without barkskin feel? no idea why you're even complaining when resto druids are probably the best healer in the game atm.
