Hey guys! Vodka here, hoping to get some insight about Retribution Paladins! At the moment, I have a 90 Elemental/Restoration Shaman, 90 Frost/Unholy Death Knight, and a 90 Destruction/Demonology Warlock. Oh and a 90 Hunter but that isn't happening lol.
So I really want to level another character and I'm choosing between a warrior, mage or paladin, all dps roles as assumed from my current characters. Now people would say "if you want high dps just go with a mage or warrior", however I love the concept of Paladins, Ret especially. Damage dealing healers with bubbles adding some survival aspects.
Now my decision is hard because since Wrath, I haven't seen ret paladins get much love and it worries me. I love being mostly DPS, even more I like DPS classes with self heals hence why I'm not leaning so much to mage or warrior.
So my question to the Ret Paladin community, how are you liking your Ret Paladin? How is your dps, how does gear scale with you? Does it take a really high iLvl to really make a difference? (i.e affliction warlocks) Do you like your survivability? Feelings of Blizzard toward your class/spec? All opinions and help are appreciated. Thanks guys!
