- 2min wings baseline
- Magic removal on Hand of Sac
- Better Heals
- Slighty better Seal of Justice
- PvP 2 set increases to 1000 pvp power up from 800
- Hand of Purity reduces all incoming damage by 10% (might not be better than Clemency but can be useful)
- 10% less damage taken with Exorcism along with Templar's verdict when glyphed
- Glyph of Blessed Life no longer requires Seal of Insight to be active. (free holy power is hard to pass up)
So while we might not be the best for arena next season we will definitely be better off than we are now.
Its also good to wait untill you have Dr on cc's before you blow your cd's.

Why are they still not buffing consistent damage? Am I the only one who sees this? O.o
I normally support GC in his crusade against the idiots, but there are a lot of times that his responses, while they make sense, are flawed. Yes... monks are a new class, of course there will be a large margin of Paladins comparatively. First of all, what is the average rating of Ret paladins compared to say... priests, ferals, DK's, warriors, hunters? That is the stats needed to be looked at. Just because a lot of people play a shitty class, doesn't mean the class is OK. I stuck with Ret for years because I really liked it. A lot. And many players in this game aren't serious. I'd say 80% of the player-base doesn't cap VP, doesn't cap conquest, and basically just chill around and do things like LFR. There was some statistic a couple months back that showed that only like 10% of players actually do 10 man raiding or something, if my memory serves me well. What % of people have ever been above 1500 rating in arena?
Just because a large amount of people play the class doesn't mean that large amount isn't hitting a wall with entrance to RBG's and hitting a brick wall in arena rating when people learn to CC the flash guy who hurts.
So basically Ghostcrawler is telling us that the only way to fix Ret is to boycott the spec until the number of Rets drops low enough? I can't believe he is naive enough to tell players to their face that specs are balanced around population, rather than actual PvP performance... He's starting to be as undiplomatic as Kalgan, and considering the MMO market is no longer securely in their grasp, I don't think he knows what he's getting himself into. Who wants to seriously invest time and money in an MMO in which your toon can become barely playable just because a lot of people like it. How dense do you have to be to not understand that the reason Ret is popular is because Paladins are a gigantic part of Warcraft lore.
I think another reason there's so many Paladins is because people see how BG Hero Ret can be and re-roll. Honestly, seeing comments like "man this makes me wanna level my Ret!" on youtube video guides and in BG's just makes me wanna caution every person interested.
Maybe if they found a way to make ret skill based again, *cough* seal twisting *cough*, the weekend warrior rets wouldn't be an issue.
Ah, the faceroll argument again. Because it takes 1337 skillz to Swifty someone in a charge stun. Maybe if other classes got where they were by having a high skill cap, this might be an issue, but frankly I don't believe it to be the case.
OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."
And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"
I just read Ghostcrawler twitter. from mmochampion main page.
So then ..... they "balance" of PvP is about around the number of people that are playing a class? , rather than the quality of life and balance issues of a class?You know, youre giving WW an obscene buff in utility all around yet you give ret some small gimmick buffs. We need massive aid.
GC : There are like 5x as many Ret paladins as all monks put together.
Seriously ... what is going on with that guy? Is he just avoiding the issue or actually just gonna not buff Ret because "there are still plenty"?I'm saying that despite perceptions, there are still plenty of Rets so maybe they're not in as dire shape as monks.
I ... I don't know what to say.
