QQ moar plz, your mage tears are deliciousI play a ret pally, we were the red headed step children in both vanilla wow and TBC.Seriously, we burn our bubble and BoF, then we can be kited around indefinitely, its not exactly hard to kill me.We have no cannon, and were not much tougher to take down than most other classes.

Shut up.You are a Ret Pally , you know a SPEC of a class, we dont go around playing fire in arena and say its sthe "red-headed step child" for us in arena.I swear you retardins are pissing me off everywhere hijacking every other classes threads and start qqing there.Yes Paladins need help but that dosent mean we give a crap about what happens to them so we're just going to try and improve our own class so stfu.

roflI feel the nerd rage from here.Seriously buddy, chill. I was just making a point.You may feel like your getting hit with the nerf bat. but just think of all the other classes taht have had it hard for a long time.Shamans come to mind, pallies in prot and ret pre tbc, and ret and holy now. Shadow and Disc pre bc, warlocks as a whole bc.Its an ever changing balance, if anything, mages have been lucky to avoid the blizz bat for so long, it means when you do receive buffs they will be well thought out, as opposed to the band aids that every other class gets, which are then rolled back 2 weeks later, and then they QQ about that.So just stop and consider how good mages actually have it.When ive got a choice between a mage and a warlock in an instance, nine times out of ten ill take the mage, why? Lets see; sheep, counterspell, frost bolt kiting when things go bad, non bursty dps, mage table, survivability, aggro dumps, aoe and single target dps.No other class can really bring such a wide variety of things to an encounter, let alone be so good at so many of them.

What you don't seem to understand is that mages only have damage, Ret4Life. If we suck at that, we have nothing to fall back on. Paladins are a blast to tank as, they have powerful, mana efficient heals, and in WotLK they're gaining very competitive damage and vastly increased utility as retribution alone.Though, you seem like a retard, and one of those "my paladin only has one role" pallies.

Ahhm, perhaps you didnt see my second post, so ill excuse you.but there are what, 4 "pure" dps classes in game right? Hunters, Mages, Warlocks and Rogues.Now, forgive me if im wrong, but from what I understand, you would only ever take these classes for thier damage? Not for utility or CC? Sheeping isnt important? Buffs? Trapping? Picking locks? Soulstone?Ok, maybe you dont need these things in every instance, so if we disregard those, why on earth would we take mages if they are so "nerfed"? Wouldnt you just stack the most dps efficient class? Think about this for a moment, every class has its advantages and disadvantages, mages fill a role unique to them. When sap can be applied in combat, and warlocks can give an intelect buff, and hunters start doleing out food, then id consider you in need of a buff.Sure, pallies have powerful heals, all of which have a cast time, making us all but useless on fights where there is lots of movement, let alone where theres a lot of aoe damage going on. As for prot, sure its fun, but our "blue rage bar" annoys me when im tanking not having an infinite supply to draw on, but for trash, we are A-gradeAs for the retard and only one role for my paladin comment, I wont take offense, because my pally has only one role, why? Because the other aspects of the paladin class dont interest me. Because I enjoy playing ret far more than the other two specs. Because I tank on my warrior, and heal on my shammy. Just because im passionate about one spec doesnt mean im blind to the other aspects of the game. Hell, ill even throw on a sword and board in fights when its needed.
