Legit question. It seems like they are always at the bottom in the raids I've done and pvp wise they seem to do no dmg after 5 seconds. I see ilevel502 paladins in raids, consisting of 480-490 ilevels, at the 15th spot, pretty sad.

I guess the thread would have been better named, Are paladins the worst dps at the moment?

Ret Paladins are a class played by many people who don't know how to properly play the class. Sort of like Hunters and DKs. Every spec has a fair amount of people who play it but suck at it. In my experience, the majority being Hunters and Ret Pallies.

I have seen lots of good ret Paladins, but even more bad ones. Play what you like, if you're good at it you will shine.

I'm normally in the top 10 for DPS overall and Top 5 on most boss fights.

Kind of low, at least looking at raid bots, but not terrible.

Basically it's Mages at the top then everyone else within a 5-10% or so degree of variance. Worst is likely combat rogues

Well, its not like their rotation is hard. In fact its prob one of the easiest.

Obviously not for people who struggle doing DPS. When people say " x spec is easy" it really isn't saying much. I don't know much about paladins because that class never appealed to me. But I know enough to tell you that their rotation involves more than like 6 abilities, you need to have the proper seal of whatever, use your avenging this and hammer of that, use that Diablo 3 looking guardian pet. Knowing your class, reforging and gemming correctly also plays a great part.

Shadow priest and Balance druid are at bot too.

Also easy rotation means nothing when you are at bot of dps chart.
I guess some people just look at a 100000 crit and be happy.
