Hey everyone, just wanna ask your opinions and what do you suggest about the matter. I will narrate the short story:
We are a casual 10 man raiding guild with some heroic kills 6/6 hc from msv and 2/6 from HoF the rest is just normal clear. I play as a retri main spec only (my off spec is either retri pvp or sometimes prot pvp). I'm kinda the player who only enjoy being retri been playing this spec for many years now and I don't enjoy healing or tanking in pve at all (I have the experience of all of my class specs but I just loath of the idea of respecing other than being dps).
The guild was fine durning cata we raided full hc clear of FL and DS me as retri with no problem at all. After the release of MoP I found myself 80% of the raiding days time getting benched and barely getting spots when it comes to progress raiding. Whenever I try to figure out why or what was the reason behind it? I get an answer from the raid leader by simple being melee and retri = bad so 80% of the time no spot for our 10 man sorry (because they already have a good player melee being frost dk)
So yeah my question is....are we really that bad in pve? I mean sure I know we are not as good as frost dk when it comes to sustain dmg overall in raid but still are we really that bad to the point that I'm being automatically benched out for the fact of being Retri melee? not because of skills, or performance, or activaty at all but because of the reason of playing that spec.
I'm not saying I'm the best retri in the world ever but I'm not bad, I pull my own weight in heroic raiding, I always have the time + dedication + the capacity to raid heroic raids as ret pala.
The solutions are either to change guild which kinda hard because of my current server it's so dead..or reroll another class which impossible for me since I only enjoy playing this class and this spec you can call me Retri freak if you want. :P
Yeah I'm thinking of changing server and search for a 25 raiding heroic guild to have better enviroment and experience. But I fear that I might end up with the same situation of being benched out just because of the spec and stuff.. so yeah what do you think everyone?
Discuss please and thanks for reading sorry for the wall of texts.
