You know what? I'm a retribution paladin, and honestly, I'm not worried. This is a BETA change. Anyone who's been involved in the beta knows that about a month or so ago Death Knights were nerfed. Hard. Ridiculously hard. Ludicrously hard. All strikes had their damage lowered. Alot of offensive talents had their damage lowered. But guess what? A couple builds later blizzard buffed them back up to par with the other classes. So, here's to hoping blizz follows their own precedent here, because I personally agree with what people are saying about the damage of all the specs being dictated by Ret. Like people have said, holy's damage is hurting now, and this change hurts prot paladins too.Also, seriously, some people cry WAY too much.

While I agree with you, I would think that by now, 2 weeks until Launch, Blizz would have been done with the "lets do massive changes on PTR and see what happens".For all the Ret haters out, you have my pity. It's really sad to see the low end of the gene pool given such a voice, but just like the cruddy mold on the doorframe calls for demolition, so too have your whines caused Blizz to demolish Ret.As you wail on about getting pwnt in PvP at LV 70 by people with LV 80 talents, after S4 is over, after titles have been given out, after you've done accumulating points for gear you will replace in 2 weeks, consider the following:- how many specs were laughed at for having poor DPS and yet at the same time, despised for having good DPS?- how many specs were forced to endure two entire Seasons of Arena gear that didn't have any resilience on it?- how many specs were forced to PvP for gear that (outside of Tier) wasn't itemized for them; Warrior gear.I'm willing to bet that half the whiners comprise of Lolstep rogues who slept their way to 1800+ ratings because of how Blizz ordered "0"s and "1"s.Fact is, most of you complainers have no idea what is has been like to be a Ret, and frankly, you lack the legitimacy to complain about it.Is Ret OP atm? Sure. Is Ret OP at LV 80? Nope. Should Ret be hamstrung for LV 80 so people feel it's balanced at LV 70 for the span of 4 weeks? Only a retard would feel that way, which says alot about the player base of this game (at least those who spam the forums).

I'm still confused as to why everyone seems to believe that 80 ret pallies pre-this-nerf were balanced for 80. Does anyone else PvP in the beta? Same abilities, same coefficients, same burst damage...I don't care if Hand of Freedom's only up half the time. The burst damage of retadins combined with DKs' Death Grip made them dominate in situations with both classes, and so no...it wasn't balanced for 80.
