So, with GC's latest acknowledgement of Ret being lacking in utility for an RBG spot, and the proposed "fix", I've all but given up on any organized Ret play this expansion. My paladin's mainspec is prot anyhow, and I love FC/node defense, but sadly prot paladin is not viable or desirable in rated PVP either. So, gonna shelf him for PVP activity and look for a new avenue to get my RBG spot.
So, with all the recent changes/reversions to balance that have been announced, what is shaping up to be the best/most viable FC/defender class in 5.2?
I've got my warrior and DK at 90 now, but not really any gear. Protwar seems to be perennially good, while blood has gone downhill a bit.
I've got my druid at 88 and with the new guardian bonuses, it looks potentially promising, but I'm not a fan of the spec really. My monk should/could be 90 soon, but it just doesn't strike me as super resilient.
Thanks for any input.
