I think a good ret paladin could be a lot more effective than a bad one, so in that sense there's some skill scaling

but dealing damage, a drooling mongoloid can deal the exact same damage as the best ret paladin in the world...that needs to change

they need to make it more interesting. Mage have shatter, arms warriors have overpower to worry about (when to go for a cast, when to just spam it), MM hunters have tons of different options, etc

ret is just slap on seal, crusader strike, exorcism, judge and you're good to go

a) You rolled that pala in WoTLK
B) You played it during TBC, it's pretty much a given that you whined. Rightfully so.

Of course people are bitter if retri is shaping up to be the new shadowfrost of season 6, remains to be seen.

DKs make me lol. It's like a hobo winning the lotto, no one knew of him before he got rich and no one likes them.

Oh man, I'm sure you weren't bitching/whining/moaning before 3.0.

I'm playing my 73 Paladin and I just feel like I could rip level 80s apart easier then my Warrior...

The point was that Rets weren't that great for the longest time and that being overpowered to compenstate that long period of time of being non viable shouldn't be the answer.

And telling people they should quit because you are overpowered is a pretty stupid thing to say FYI.

Playing ret became alot more fun when you're not just waiting for judgement to go off cooldown.

Loving the new ss!

Our substained dmg is insane though, played 1 bg and went 30-1 without any heals lol.

ret:paladin: now

I hear in a bracket where there are 10 classes, 2 to a team, having 20% representation is wrong. Oh wait no thats exactly what par is.

Curious what ret dps will look like in PVE now..

Because that will be a large factor in eventual PvP nerfing.

Ret pve dps is actually fairly competetive, though it's a bit behind pure classes vs single target as it should be. Fights with multiple adds that consecration/ds will hit will push ret into top5 though. So our dps is probably just about ideally balanced for pve, though maybe JOL needs nerfed as it's outhealing real healers on a lot of fights.

I don't know if we're shadowfrost-level of overpowered, but I feel very strong in bgs at least. I've killed cloth in 2-3 globals and crapped on rogues/wars/hunters and even dks in the 6sec of hoj duration. And I've had fully resil geared healers tank me til they oom'd. So pretty much same as pre3.1 in terms of 1v1s and how quickly we can shit on ppl without full resil gear?

Sacred shield is amazing now.
Exorcism is fun.
Freedom isn't breaking maim stun. (bug probably?)
40sec hammer :(

I think the damage/utility we gained well outweighs the loss of really big judge crits. And generally the classes that tended to give us problems were nerfed too which helps a lot of course.
