    are rets meh ?

    doing arenas last night and was seeing that i couldnt get past 1700 not due to me being bad but because of other classes just out classing me .....it started with a monk wariror team .....went 20 mins and we lost thru the whole game i was either stuned or disarmed back to back then charge stun and monk sap it got really stupid now it got real close sometimes where id get the wariror to 1 % and he would def stance sheidlwall and lol second wind with monk bubble and that happend about 6 times my damage was 7X that of the wariror but was still not able to kill them .....just thinking if pallys could get a little something more like a ms that goes with crusader strike or increase ret healing in pvp cuz it sucks soooo bad .....you fellow rets feel the same or you think there needs to be something else

    Rets are terrible, but well enough to get you past 1700 and more
    PvE is a minigame // Rerolled from affly to spriest after 8 years, thx pandaland changes

    Well, in PvP I hardly see them anymore and when I do I always have the feeling it's a new player.

    They dont seem to be so great anymore tbh. The few I see I can usually kill without any trouble.

    Rets aren't worth taking over the main melee now such as Warrior/Rogue/Feral.

    Played 5's between 2100-2300 MMR today. It fluctuated a lot.

    It was painful; Ret would be trained all game and just couldn't survive. Only wins we could get seemed to come from just randomly globaling something everytime he had wings or the shaman was bursting.

    Ret was never great in the first place the only time we became OP was at pre Wotlk patch and the first season of Wotlk. Other than that we are always inferior in pvp compare to other melees...which is sad because it's my favorite class and spec.

    I feel that ret is a good class/spec, but other classes and specs are more powerful. Not that Ret is weak its strong if you know what you are doing, but if someone playing another melee also knows what they're doing then they will be much stronger.

    We played Ret / Rogue / Resto shaman this season. We're not exactly skill-capped. :P Playing for fun. Sitting 1750-1800.

    The HoPs were nice with all the warriors around. We did feel at a disadvantage against a lot of comps. Monks (particularly WW) gave us fits.

    Rets fun to play in pve. I like the rotations and gameplay style of ret. but in pvp we are absolutely awful. We get stomped by every other class in EVERY aspect, be it healing/selfhealing, dps, cc, survival, utility.. everything...

    Ret<<<<<<<Any dps, a good ret can kill most classes, but if they`re equal at skill, gear and all that, a ret wont win, there is a reason you dont see them in arenas, i stopped pvp on my ret in s14 after getting around 11k conquest, i have had enough.

    Yeah they're kinda gimpy right now. Not broken per se, but there are better choices.

    they get trained until they die. ok support class(off heals, freedom, bop). your only going to kill something with wings up however.

    Ret has very low sustained damage, Decent Burst and Horrible personal survivability.

    Competitively there is almost no reason to bring Ret over another melee. If you want Paladin utility you can just bring a Holy Paladin.

    Most other classes have higher burst. The contrast between mediocore burst and non-existing sustained just makes it look high. Same thing in PvE.
