[quote]Raids shouldn't be forced to bring a Retribution Paladin for Crusader Strike's seal refreshment aspect. [/quote]Fuck off you Holy heal bot. I think I speak for every Retribution Paladin out there. Partially Protection as well, as they can also make use of Judgments. That's pretty much half the reason Ret even gets to raid. Also spamming Holy Shock is a waste of man for a healer to keep up Judgments. Try spamming a 650 mana attack every 15 seconds and see how long you'll last on mana. Who let this fool even talk to begin with?

How about rank 1 Holyshock? If you ask me I think most holydins will clamour for any decent change that would spice up their spell rotations. Anyway leave the guy alone, I play Ret and I completely agree with the author's statement. Paladins already rely on so many other classes to reach their full potential (WF as an example), it makes no sense that we should have to rely on OTHER paladins to help us perform our best in raids.

Hear, hear!Freakin cloth-wearing sissy thinks he knows about being a paladin.I think it's time I start writing a tri-weekly column on Retribution. We are continually under-represented and slandered regularly.

He's saying that judgements should be refreshed on any paladin attack. That includes your judgements, retnoob. That way when that frost mage is kiting you you can at least keep your judgement up while you die.I understand your reluctance for this to come about, since it makes you useless in raids, but you should be used to being the redheaded stepchild by now. Face it, Blizzard hates us, and no matter how much you fight it, the only reason you have a raid slot is because of CS. You're a paladin, we get to be a tank or a healer, not DPS. That may change in the future, but for now you need to get off your high horse and just do your job, which is either to trash tank, MT heal, or CS spam.Let the man write his article in peace, he's asking for something every holy pally has been asking for for years.

This is why Ret pallies don't get raid invites, not because they aren't useful, its because they usually are dicks...

Retribution Paladins should be taken to raids for their DPS, not merely to refresh seals. I've raided SSC/TK as Retribution and top DPS meters. If you're only invited to raids because you can refresh Judgements, then you're a pretty crappy Retribution Paladin.

if youre topping damage meters in a raid as a ret pally you either out gear your fellow dps by a good deal or they are in a coma. Ret pallies are still largely a utility class. Maybe thats not how it should be, but thats how it is. I have a 70 pally and while hes prot Im aware of how ret works using to level and briefly at 70.
