I've been playing Arms warrior but I'm not feeling it with the nerfs, I don't like it because it feels clunky and wildly dependent on RNG for resets - such as for target switching, or not having one of your few damage windows be when you have to run out for a mechanic. I'm contemplating a few different classes, and one of them is Retribution Paladin.
One of my guildies that I was talking to said he felt Retribution was clunky and felt awful until 30% haste, then it felt really simplified and newbie-friendly without any kind of side-trick that raises the skill ceiling (like how for Arms, you used to use hamstring during battlecry with deadly calm for an extra 5-10% chance for a reset every battlecry).
I decided I'd look into it a bit more before really committing to anything, but I don't really know anyone that mains a Retribution Paladin. So I've come here! What do you guys like about Retribution Paladin? Do you think the gameplay feels rewarding and engaging? Is your damage consistent or are you at the mercy of RNG for procs, etc.? Does gameplay become a lot better with higher ILVL/more artifact traits? Do you have any comments for someone considering playing a Retribution Paladin?
Thanks for any help you can give! I love this community.
