I've never played a ret pally, tho my main is a paladin (full epic, holy). I only started after BC was published, so mine is a limited view.I was happy that at least one sort of pally had some dps, even if we all knew it couldn't last. I was never really bothered by the fact that the time used to kill something around my own level was counted in minutes, but I understand how some people might be. I wasn't bothered, because I had nothing to compare with. Well, that was then.Then I started leveling my arcane mage alt. And my view of the word 'dps' changed. Of course I knew holy pally dps sucks big time (still does), but it had never really dawned on me how much. Even my priest alt kills things easier than my pally at her level. She can solo quests I had enormous trouble with before. It took me 24 days /played to ding 70 with my pally, without the slacking and profession grind maybe 20 days. With my mage I had 10 days with about the same amount of slack. Like the comparison? Most of the leveling on these both was done before the first exp nerf. Doesn't that sound like fun?And if we think about the bgs... Well, I've always been free HK. Even if I had bubble. That might have something to do with my not-so-imba PvP skillz or the fact that Horde sucks in my battlegroup though ;pSo, what I'm really trying to say is that maybe we paladins were entitled to have some dps, weren't we? I do understand why to nerf it, but please try to keep the nerf bat off us innocent protadins and holys? It takes me double the time to do the isle dailies with full epic pally than with a green/blue mage. Is that really fair?
