I've always played ret as main spec but usually I end up using my secondary spec just the same if not more than my main.
I've been gone for a year and planning to return but I want to know how are things now.
How are holy paladins doing compared to other healers? Is it true taht you need to be meleeing to get mana to heal? As a healer I would hate it because I need to see whats happening to the raid and manage things. If I have to be meleeing like monks (I hear) that would pretty much decide it for me. However, if not and if your healing is comparable to others I would be playing healer since is different than just meleeing again as tank. When I lelf cata only our shaman was outhealing me.
What is the situation with tanking? In Wrath I like that you could always get enough treat to keep the mobs on you, just because holy damage was high. I know healers are more in demand, but generally I would prefer to tank if tanking is comparable to other classes and if I have to melee in healer mode.
So, what are your observations or its too early to say?
PS: I saw the guild recruitment forum (for guilds) but is there a forum for players seeking guilds?
