Been playing my paladin up to 85 blimey is it hard work. I mostly spam instances as Holy but when I have to quest as Ret (for rep or whatever) sometimes it can be like pulling teeth. Either I get an avalanche of procs and crits and the mob disintigrates before me, but more often than not I'm attempting to whittle it down slowly.
I was doing those quests around Stormwind with Anduin Wrynn as a prelude to Twilight Highlands, and if a couple of those crazed cutlists guys attacked me at once it'd invariably end up with me busting cooldowns, bubbling and spamming terrible heals on myself just to stay alive.
Do you think Blizzard nerfed ret survivability and burst too much?
