Holy is still the most viable spec for the majority of paladins. Our ability to heal may be falling behind the rest of the healers but it won't ever change the fact that healers are always needed. Good healers more so. Thats PvE discussed. PvP is a complete mess and in my opinion paladins are currently "broken" in that respect. Once bubble has been used, thats it, you can pretty much kill the paladin off because they really don't have any other form of defence, other than healing themselves which interrupts if your good can take care of easily. Druids and Priests make far better arena healers than paladins. Then protection. I've tanked every 5 man on my paladin and very well, but never really got the chance to take it any further, so i can't really comment on what its like raiding 25 man content as one.Lasty retri. No one seems to ever want a retri paladin for anything despite that they bring utility such as 3% crit to all attacks, as well as the normal buffs, auras. In PvP it can be viable because of the gear and depending on group setups but generally paladin retri PvP gear is inferior to every other class that pvps. I mean, before 2.3 or 4 it didn't even really have any resilience on it for crying out loud >.>The talent trees are a complete mess. Its unfair a druid can tank, dps as well as heal but when it comes to paladins - Blizzard say they want to focus on "the core trees of Holy and Protection". Granted I think bliz has done a great job at making protection actually useful since BC but theres no excuse for ignoring the retri tree.
