In their attempt at quelling the anti-Ret QQers, Blizzard also nerfed Holy and Protection paladin DPS (already the lowest of their respective roles). The way Blizzard DEV is going, there won't be any paladin of any spec left.

I'm almost done leveling my warrior to replace my paladin as my tank toon. He is so fun to play, but I'm still kind of sad about it. It makes zero sense to me that a warrior would ever be able to complete with what is essentially a warrior that also has magical powers. In Warcraft 2, when you wanted to make your normal warrior knights powerful, you upgraded them to Paladins...In BC prot paladins had their strengths in comparison to a warrior, but they certainly had there weaknesses too. Now that warriors are so strong at AoE, and caster control, and panic buttons, and moving about the field of combat easily, there is just nothing about my prot paladin that feels strong anymore. I'm not saying that prot paladins can't tank. I feel like if I stuck to prot I'd be "good enough" for any encounter, but a warrior just has so many more options.The only cool thing we have in LK is seal of vengeance/corruption having a 100% chance to apply, and being able to roll a 5 stack on three targets with hammer of the righteous. If they keep nerfing the seals then it really isn't going to matter much. We need a 11 point talent to make up for this.
