Edit: For clarification, I agree with you.
I usually get to RBGs if I want to, at least after linking my Battlemaster achievement. A ret who knows his stuff is always better than someone who doesn't know his.
Ret isn't necessarily bad... they are just bad compared to other melee DPS. Its like choosing the fat kid on your team, no one will pick you unless they absolutely have to, and since most RBG teams have a whole server to pick through, and now even cross-server... yeah.
Has anyone actually seen what a Warrior can do in damage versus a Paladin's damage? The burst may be about the same, hell maybe even a little more, along with great sustained damage and great low-term cooldowns. You'd be making it harder on yourself to pick a Ret.
Call me House.
Is there some reason you can't play with your friends? And if you want to play your UH DK they're like "okay, that's going to be interesting, but that just makes it more fun!"
Or can you only play WoW with people who don't care who you are or what you want?
Because Ret Paladins aren't good? Every skill bound to a CD, all Burst bound to CDs, one of the highest cost/highest maintenance spells in the game (Inquisition), low self-heals, poor gap closing capability, lower DPS than other plate classes, nothing that can't be brought by Holy Paladins or other classes.
Don't expect it to change as Ghostcrawler has said time and time again that Ret Paladins are, "Pretty much exactly where we want them to be right now".
So either everything else is getting nerfed to our level, or we're staying below everybody else.
"The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man." - Gilbert K. Chesterton
When people come here acting gods without solid arguments or having real backbone of experience is ye questionable. PvP may not be my boat or cup of tea but stuff that person has done in PvE and kit/gear he is sporting is not enough to understand and see the flaws with Ret, sorry. (If that's the right person at all).
Ontopic: I don't recall such day/days. If being a heal supportbot count as that then ok... Ret always had to be carried by some sort of comp in 3s. Only time I remember ret team getting anywhere was when Vanguards played with Mez, and well Vanguards is a really good player but I'm sure he would agree that Mez carry potential is resounding.
I see you are searching through many people's armories. Pretty sad. Maybe this struck too badly:
From what I've seen, most rets just plain suck, be it PvE or PvP, and ruin the spec's reputation.
Well that kinda puts the nail in the coffin (gemming and utilizing gear is completely wrong). So ye get off your high horse mate.
Pretty bad dps tbh considering the level of your gear...
