Actually, most of the ones I see have started being beaten by mages and are now crying about them. Bad people will always cry about what beats them. It just happened to be Paladins for a time.
And this kills raid DPS alone and nothing else whatsoever. Pallies still self-heal. They still burst crazily. They still do all the wonderful things people complain about that's actually effective. I don't think I saw many posts saying that Paladin DPS was too high in Beta...only a fear that they might lose their place to Ret paladins for DPS slots in a raid (which they should be afraid of, in the name of competition and fairness).
