Sigh.Blessing of Salvation... god why do people keep bringing that up? EVERYONE HAS BLESSING OF SALVATION DURING A RAID EXCEPT THE TANKS. What is being asked for is inherent threat reduction while DPSing. Believe it or not but Paladins can put out decent numbers if threat isn't an issue, it'll be much easier to do with this patch from what I've read, but the total potential DPS is limited by only one real thing: Threat. Don't even try to bring the Bubbles into it, this is threat reduction not "ignored for a dozen seconds because you're immune". Think things through please. BoSalv is applied to everyone but the tanks, what Ret Paladins are asking for, and were promised, was a slight discount on threat generation.Right now Retribution Paladins have the lowest DPS and the highest threat with all the raid buffs that is given out. "Oh but they're supposed to be healers and tanks..." you say, well too bad you're out of date. The devs want Retribution (or so they said) to be raid viable, there are quotes a-plenty out there, of them wanting to make it more than a levelling spec. A boost in DPS output is great and all, but the underlying concern has always been about PvE damage sustainability. You have a slightly reliable damage Seal, a now-6 second attack, 8-second judgements, and still balancing all the damned stats out there.
