While I didn't word that right, you're mistaken. Rets do not have any defensive utility that is not easily countered by a dispell.
I'm trained into the ground 95% of the time. I'm sure that's because of my staggering amountof defensive capabilities, right?
Also, I don't disagree with you about this thread. I was trying to ignore the whiney tone of the OP
Ret burst is out of control and it is plain retarded.
Rets are being trained because they heal their teammates more than their healer does.
I'd just state that Rets are currently like S11 Vial Rogues. Your health goes from 100% to 35% in one global. Yes, literally, in one global.
