I started leveling up an alliance paladin for a little change of pace for when I'm not raiding on my horde rogue. I sought advice from my pally raiding buddies and they recommended rolling ret till 40. Tanking as ret from dead mines to SM is entirely possible, now lvl 37 I'm really starting to feel the hits, with a full heirloom set and a 2 handed sword (been rolling that all the way) I'm able to do the "collect all the mobs and keep my group together" bit just fine but the hits are really taking their toll. So far I've only had one commment in game about 2H Ret Tanking, and currently ( no cathedral yet ) ret tanking is holding quite well. Not to mention topping the dps meter non stop. When you play the game 100% on cue there's absolutely no hindrance in being a ret tank The standard 2-3 mob packs are easily taken down and combined with life blood I'm often not needing heals during the fight. The problem is with the old instances even some of the players I've run into with the system are fresh, with no real understanding of how dungeon mechanics work even the basic LOS pulls are like pulling teeth.
