Very nice read C-Money, a lot of the critisism is a bit uncalled for considering most of it is wrong and written by people who have no intention of playing a different class that they apparently know everything about. Afterall i'm sure they're too busy polishing their arena medals to write something useful.I play, you guessed it, a ret pally and I used to do casual 2v2 with a DK. It was immense fun as i'd just charge in and nuke whatever clothie I saw first for a few seconds and then turned back to helping out my teammate when needed. Heals, CC, stuns etc.This may sound like a crazy question, but in a previous post you said Ret pallys can use pvp gear and pve gear, something i've always been forced to do because i've never had the time to gear myself up with the latest pvp gear. What do you think about a mix of holy pvp gear and retri pvp gear for a 3v3 team? I'm sure i'll still do decent damage if i'm with the right teammates but with the added SP i'd be able to heal myself more allowing our main healer to deal with himself and the other dps?Thanks :)

You want to wear DPS gear if you're the DPS on the team. Leave healing to your healer, he's actually specced for it.^ Just my recommendation, you might be able to make a new hybrid spec / gearing system work, but I personally haven't seen a lot of success in the arena with those types of experiments.You will be more beneficial to your team by putting the enemy team on the defensive instead of trying to play the role of half-healer. Chances are because you're not pressuring the enemy team (when you're healing), they'll be pumping more pressure into your team, which will force you to play more defensively (and throw more heals). Because you're not specced for heals, you'll enter a downward spiral.That's how I've seen these things played out before, but like I said, new and interesting things can always happen when someone puts their mind to it, so don't let me tear you down if you wanna try it out, it might be the new big thing.
