Excuse me? If you're so tired of rolling Holy just to see progression, then get out of your cookie-cutter guild. Nothing I said discredits Retribution's viability in raids. If you know anything about Retribution, you should understand that they should be brought into raids NOT JUST for Crusader Strike, which is a poor excuse for the spec's raid utility. You realize that if you're the ONLY Paladin in the raid, the judgement refresh feature is USELESS? If anything, I'm demanding for MORE Retribution viability and not less.Know nothing about raiding Retribution? I was the third person to be awarded Nether Vortexes in our 25-man progression to complete my Stormherald long before Vortexes became Badge welfare. I was MADE to spec Retribution when we had to do VR for the first time to boost our melee and beat the timer. I was Retribution on several of our first time 25-man kills.I respec 4-5 times a week depending on what our raid or team needs. THAT'S how I play my Paladin. Retribution is my spec of choice, and I'm brought to raids for my DPS buffs, blessings, and because if the encounter needs it I can swap into healing gear and pull +1600 healing unbuffed. If you think I'm calling for Retribution to be scrapped from raids from the call on Judgements to be refreshed by ANY attack, then you're just as short-sighted as the troll above. Retribution brings MORE utility than just judgement refresh. Our guild brings Paladin tanks to progression, which cements my spot -- as Retribution -- in raids.You're bored out of your mind? Respec. That's what I do. Just because YOU can't raid as Ret -- and you don't even seem to know HOW -- don't knock me for a comment you don't even begin to understand. Leave your guild and get into one with a Paladin MT. Get into a guild that brings you for your blessings and DPS. Can Retribution get some more love from Blizz? Hell yeah. Judgement refresh is great, but it shouldn't be the only excuse for guilds to take a Retribution Paladin into raids. If that's the only reason a Retribution Paladin is there, then you're GIMPING THE RAID. Pull your weight and do some real DPS.
