[quote]Your posts get voted down because you're rude and use curse words instead of presenting your argument sensibly. Besides, YOUR real point has been your fear of Retribution losing viability if ANY attack refreshes Judgements.[/quote]I've had worse words uttered to me when I was trying to be Retribution pre patch 2.3. Pre TBC I was forced to spec Holy, and Post TBC wasn't any better. Ret Paladins could increase the raids dps before patch 2.3, but not enough for the sacrifice of their lack of dps. I've told people before about extra blessings, auras, and lay of hands but they didn't care. They would explain to me that why bring a Ret Paladin for something a Holy Paladin could do? Raids bring hybrid dps for that special something. Enhancement gets brought in for their ability to increase melee dps. Sure a Resto could drop Windfury, but the moment that a Resto can do everything Enhance can, then everybody wants Resto. [quote]MY point has been that Retribution can and SHOULD be brought not just for refreshing Judgements. You realize that -- following your argument -- if no other Paladins are in the raid, say in a 10-man, Ret immediately loses its spot because there are no other Judgements to refresh? That's just STUPID. Retribution should be viable BEYOND utility in conjunction with other Paladins.[/quote]A Ret Paladin could put down 1 Judgment. That's enough to get people hooked. Hell in Hyjal the Hunters begged that I put up Judgment Wisdom on the 4th boss. It put a smile on my face. Either way, Judgments and Improved Sanctity Aura is all we have. I average 1300 dps with windfury, but it's not enough. Sure would be nice to have Seal of Blood or AP->SD, or hell even both. We won't see that until WOTLK. Like it or not it would nerf Retribution for what you're saying. Blizzard also reads wowinsider.com. So if you give Blizzard any smarts ideal, then Retribution is fucked.
