As a ret paladin, it is hard not to feel VERY put out by these changes. They are coming on top of huge nerfs to sacred shield (used to be a core spell; is now irrelevant) and Lay on Hands (so nerfed they may as well have removed it). Cleanse was a key arena ability in particular, and ret have already all but vanished from serious arena teams (yes, I know you see them in lower rankings. That's the only place you see them). Unless something happens, you just won't be seeing serious arena teams taking ret at all. We've lost most of our burst damage and now most of our survivability tricks, but gained nothing to increase our dreadful lack of mobility.In PvE, cleanse was very important in certain encounters. Losing it isn't as big a hit as for pvp, but it still hurts. Especially coming on the heals of losing raid wall, it further lowers our overall utility. When forming a raid, the leader begins to wonder why take ret when a fury warrior does much more dps.
