Because of the high frequency of negativity and overall "my class/race/faction sucks" (both for IRL and ingame issues) across all boards, I have reverted to primarily lurking and only posting when I need help. I'm hoping this can be fixed, but if I don't do this, I will likely end up depressed and disgusted with humanity as a whole.

the other classes also have their tier bonuses u cant just sit down and w8 for ur tier bonus , we didnt kill the first boss yet but i can see where i top the meters with my burst and then i go down waiting for my burst again
While gearing mains on my Ret alt with 461 ilvl I felt like I was able to compete on most fights. The only guy who beat me on all fights was a Rogue with over 470 ilvl. Sure, my Warlock crushes my Ret but I don't feel like we are that much behind as I was expecting us to be. Things feel like normal atm and I don't see why people are complaining. I figure as soon as we get >480 ilvl and our haste has kicked in we'll be able to compete with other melee classes. That's really where our problem lies right now IMHO.
if ur talking about dungeons bosses 4 min max fight u can compete with everyone but we are talking about raids with 15 min boss fight many classes will top the meters while ur waiting ur cooldowns
Aaaand another expansion goes on through where ret dps is undesirable from day 1 so I'm pushed into holy and then made to feel bad if I want to respec when it gets buffed later down the line. *sigh*
Cata and Mists, why you do dis. *shakefist*
I have eaten all the popcorn, I left none for anyone else.
TV needs a huge buff, it has laughable damage atm. Slight buff to Exo/Judge. No more CD-based tier bonuses, plx.
Ret is currently awful.
Many of the Paladins in my guild and Paladins I know said levelling as Ret was tiring and awful. Now they're hitting dungeons, (I'm a Prot Paladin) and I've noticed with random Ret-pug-adins that I'm actually outdpsing them.
Ret needs a massive buff. We're awful at the moment.
It's way too early to follow WoL averages. We need to give it some time for the numbers to actually average out. For example, there are going to be less monks right now than any other class because of the work to level (or RaF) a new class to 90. Not to mention that RaFing a character to 90 doesn't take into consideration professions. The profession stat boosts are significant, but even more so professions that can craft you some gear. I haven't played a Ret Pally yet (in fact I'm not currently subbed, although I know I will by the end of the week) but I do think it's too early to judge.
So, I haven't been able to log recently because my mobo is on its last legs and it freaks when I start to log for some reason. But ret is quite good really. In the closest thing to a patchwerk fight we have right now (Gara'jal) here's what my raid looked like. (Keep in mind that the spriest, lock, monk and boomie were the only ones going down so theirs are skewed a bit.)
That being said, I'm not a fan of being a 3 minute champion. But it's not all bad.
Can't post a link =.= don't have enough posts apparently
