Isn't it about now a moderator steps in and tells people to get back on topic? not to be a hound but jeesh the idea of this topic has been sent spinning off course. (and thanks offhand for coming back to it in some sort)
I've been watching this thing for like 20 minutes and it starts as an idea for str per armor talent and morphed into class balance.
what happened to paladins being the guys who grit and bear it? We've come a long way from wearing dresses to get the healing we need for molten core. BC gave us even more and now we're MTing stuff and there are Ret paladins live in the 2k + dps range.
The fact that we're having a discussion about something as little as a str/armor talent should tell yah we're probably in good shape if we're arguing over the little things.
