Wow, hasn't prot pally come a long way from the days of "pull the zone." Sure, now, you can pull the zone, but it'll take you a half hour to kill it.
I just don't like playing ret. For one thing, I hate keeping up short term buffs. For another, it's just like a half dozen buttons light up randomly, and very slowly. I get that ret is a great spec in the hands of someone who likes it. But protadin just doesn't do any solo DPS. It performs maybe half as well as blood DK. Maybe. Healadin might be okay except the AoE is gone. I just don't want to play ret. God. Dammit.
And I have a druid. I prefer keeping her speced resto and balance. Except balance is a profoundly annoying spec to play when you have mobs meleeing you because you can't do a damn thing except run in circles casting moonsunfire and holy shit does that get boring. Meanwhile, the best you can do with resto is cast a moonfire and go cat form. It works, it just works OMFG so slow. My druid is gimped unless I have a whole nuther set of agility gear, AND a spec I don't want.
Which is YOUR most annoyingly gimped spec?
