Ret pallys? Not overpowered in ICC. I call bull on that. I saw a ret pally do 11k dps in the first wing.

It varies from fight to fight depending on how things line up for you and how your raid is stacked."Bottom of the barrel" was a strong term for me to use, I agree, but numbers on one fight doesn't reflect numbers on all fights.
Do remember that certain fights favor certain class/spec combos. Deathbringer is very favorable to melee because they simply stand there and beat the crap out of him, but a fight like lady deathwhisper is more favorable to mages because they dont have to run between add packs.

Also remember that seeing ONE example of a high dps output doesn't make the entire spec overpowered. There is something to be said for skill and lucky procs.

Also, if you're looking at data for a whole run, trash is going to spike that A LOT, particularly in the first wing.Trash undead + 2T9 + 2T10 + Ret Paladin willing to use Consecrate and Holy Wrath? That guy's going to the top of the damage meters really quick, with a lot of buffer room for his DPS to drop by half when they get to Lord Marrowgar without the damage meters showing much of an overall change.

@gwenalynnIf you're counting trash dps, you're doing it wrong.It's a ret paladin, on undead, aoe pulls. On my ret paladin, I do 12k dps easily in the first wing of ICC...on the trash. On the bosses it's a different story, and that's where it actually counts.
