    I regret making my ret paladin my main now....should have gone with a warlock or mage >.<

    Ret paladins are not that bad, although to be honest my gear is kinda pimped at the moment. But here's our Elegon 25 man log, did pretty good in my opinion. http://worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-oc...?s=5106&e=5654

    Edit: I even died once.
    Little something I picked up from BFBC2 forums.

    That fight provides a damage buff so if you are just sitting the boss that doesn't say much. Either way nice dps.

    Elegon is the only fight that Rets are actually doing decently on in pre-raid gear.

    No. This is the top-end of RNG and skill for every spec, so the only explanation is, Ret sucks in pre-raid gear.

    In our strategy, only two mages were staying on the boss for most of the time, excluding later spark spawns. So there's actually a fair bit of movement, resetting your debuff etc. Our profile has logs from Wednesday, stayed very much near the middle or the middle-top in terms of damage.

    I thank you for your compliment, going to be interesting to see how the dps pans out in heroics, after the fights are familiar, mastering cooldown usage etc. I'm guessing my whole point is the fact that while I too personally thought paladins obsolete once again, they indeed can bring competitive dps to a raid.

    Thats like saying you enjoy playing golf but you have no arms but you will still try very hard and put in many hours of work. Pretty sure the end result will be the same. Its the same reason I quit my priest. No matter how hard I tried every other healer just facerolls with no skill while watching TV and blows me away. Since raids went live I have gotten kicked from 6 raids and been laughed at when trying to join countless others. You just have to accept your spec sucks and play something else until its fixed. I had to. At least I found a paladin in the WoL DPS parses. Out of the top 40 healers for every single encounter there isnt a single disc priest. We are just worthless trash.

    Ya our strategy is melee kill the protector so my numbers will never compare to Rets that are on the boss. But w/e I don't care enough to worry about it anymore.

    Don't trust doest numbers to much do, I'm hoping that things will look better when we get some better ranks, like the average of top 200 of each class and raidbots.coms ranks up and running.

    But as I have written before, the numbers is still based on a very low number of logs so you shouldn't take it as facts and we still don't know what effect different gearscaling and setbonuses will have on the rank when the epic raiding gear starts rolling in. We will have a lot better stats in a month or two when people are epic-geared and sites like raidbots will have stats based on the average value of the 200 best from each class.
    But you are completely right, we need more data and data not only based on the number 1 dps, more like an average of top 100-200 from each class.

    how often do I need to explain this? NOT EVERY CLASS IS AFFECTED THE SAME BY RNG!! depending on procs, boss abilities and even class popularity, every spec has different effects from RNG. A mage can survive a lethal attack using Cauterize. a rogue can Cloak many debuffs off and resist many other spells.

    in addition, you can't be sure that the best players are submitting logs. a number of top guilds don't submit logs until other guilds have killed it as well, or not even their first attempt. you also can't be sure that the players that are playing paladins have just as much luck as the other players.

    no, ret DPS doesn't suck. It's WAY TOO EARLY to tell that. wait till heroic modes are being done by the medium guilds. once raidbots and such have been updated with the average DPS, you can start drawing conclusions. but as long as fire mages have a 20K swing in either direction at high-end gear and ret paladins only 10K (simulationcraft numbers), you cannot draw conclusions on which class is the best.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    Oh yeah we will rule Azeroth just one month before next expansion and then be total crap for the 1st to 3rd tier of this expansion. I guess that's the way we are designed.

    I'm french, I'm really sorry if my english is bad. I try to do my best.

    Yeah but it was 135%. I would've settled for 115% or something.

    100% is ok, imo (pure holy damage + Inquisiton , hello!), but the ramp up time kinda' sucks.

    This as well.
    I liked it better when it shared a CD with Crusader Strike and if it hit X amount of targets it would generate a charge of HP. At least that way you would have a option to start off with some aoe like every other class does.

    (Though Light's Hammer and the Exorcism-aoe glyph were probably added to make up for the change even though the former can bugger through the floor on a whim and leave you dumbfounded)
    If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength
    of the materials present in the object in question in comparison to your own mass volumetric density.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    That's what HotR is for. Same thing just needs a target.
