Is it just me or do ret paladins suck?

They do barely any dps
#2WynnSilvergazePosted 1/31/2013 9:01:56 AM
Ret has always sucked. Well.... there may have been a month or two where it was really good.

They're solid dps, great burst. Not the best in the game, but certainly not a bad class.

If your weapon sucks, then your DPS sucks. That is how Ret works.

Ret is a solid class like somebody else said. In a sense, they bring a really great utility to raid groups. Surely, holy and protection shine more frequently but since Cata retri sucked the first tier and kept improving as expansion went on.

The problem isn't Ret, unfortunately it's just most people who play Ret are just terrible players in general since there is so many of them.

But the ret priority system seems pretty forward...

spam holy power gen abilities
use holy buff
continue to spam
use things that cost 3 holy power on cd
once it procs use that blue hammer
repeat

Not prioritizing correctly can result in some DPS loss, since the priority system should go Inquisition up > TV at 5 HP > HoW > Exorcism > Crusader Strike > Judgement > TV at 3 HP, and most Rets just kind of hit whatever whenever (And mainly prioritize TV over everything else regardless of HP levels). That and for some reason some are under the weird assumption that Haste currently isn't Ret's best stat.
