Seems to me like Protection paladins are the ones usually happy with how the class is. I suppose its because they have their own, clearly-define niche in PvE and don't have to worry about being viable in PvP.Holy paladins used to have their niche, but it has become seriously diminished due to other healers being incredibly buffed and Arena combat highlighting the inherent flaws of no instant heals and 1 school of magic.Retribution has been somewhat buffed in 2.3 and 2.4, but the problem is they've all been minor changes, the changes have been coming too slowly, and the changes usually break something else as a result. Minor fixes aren't going to help a spec that is fundamentally handicapped due to game mechanics, meaning something just short of a complete overhaul is needed to get Ret on par with other DPS specs.I just wish they could fix some of it right now, beyond itemization, instead of pushing it off to the next expansion.
