You can't use sk gaming's top 100 as an accurate gauge as to how "well represented" a particular spec is.The top 3 supposed "ret paladins" on that list actually play as holy (check out team comp and they're secondary spec).PvE weapons > PvP weapons, certainly. Also running with 2 pieces of PvE gear is the norm as you don't sacrifice too much resilience, however this applies to every single class. Maybe you were trying to convey this in the article, as there really isn't much else to say about ret paladins. I'm not claiming to be a top arena player, I play ret in the 2k-2200 bracket on a 3's team, our highest rating is 2094 with a MMR of 2198. This was the week before patch and it has sense dropped due to the influx of high end PvE gear within the arenas.I am not doubting your skill or knowledge of arena, I know you play arena at the high end, and I don't know how you handle ret paladins, I can however bet that if you play above 2400 you don't see too many. I'm wondering if maybe "ret paladins" aren't your main target because if you see a paladin dps'ing above 2400 they're almost definitely prot, I only know of 3 players who actually play as ret above 2400: Nyquilt, Tricity, and Hoffahoff.Hoffahoff is by far the most knowledgeable Ret paladin, you should watch is latest video to get a good understanding about Ret paladins within the arenas.http://warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=133167With that being said I am done arguing about this, as I've written before good article, just incorrect about retribution paladins, that is all.
