Yeah rets are decent in 2s, you can play Ret/hunter,  Ret/mage,  Ret/boomkin-feral   Ret/disc  Ret/enhance all can be pretty viable

ret/shad works well too.
seen some insane burst on ret/warrior before, although outside burst your pretty much done for against heavy control teams

I suggest a mage partner.

double hybrids can be tough to kill. they offheal each other while performing heavy harassment on the enemy heals.
also makes ret/enh viable. as they are both heavy burst you will usually kill something within the first 8 seconds.

ret/holy doesnt pump out enough damage outside ret burst to actually kill something. most dps will keep their peels handy for when you bust wings.

I personally used to play a lot of Ret/Enhance. (I was the Enhance). You swap into people without trinkets and do messy things to them. With the amount of ways you have to avoid/negate CC, it's pretty easy to land kills. Couple that with off-healing and turtling up for your cooldowns, it's a nasty 2's combo to face.

Ret/enhance was funny last season when u didint meet healer warrior or healer dk everygame(overall) healer dps all the time, but now all u do is meet those comps and u have to tryhard so much to win those type of comps as ret/enha. Atm ret,hunter is prolly bet for 2s

Also be prepared to be tunneled (or in some cases, chain cc'd) most of the time as ret. I enjoyed ret-enh ret-mage and for some extent ret-hunter. Would love to try out ret-rogue and ret-ele.

I definitely discourage you to play ret-healer or non-bursty 2 dps (like ret-monk ret-dk) if you wish to enjoy the matches at least a bit and don't want to play them till arena debuff.

well 2s is the most boring bracket it have ever been for me. I use to like to do 2s more than just for cap. Now i barely play 2s at all anymore. Like s12 rets were more worse than now, but still i liked 2s much more than now wonder why..
