A ret paladin is around 3-4 times as likely to survive a bad encounter as a shaman. Shaman are glass cannons, ret are more akin to APCs. A shaman can try to heal through damage giving up significant damage to do so, a ret paladin heals themselves with their rotation, can judge light to heal while doing damage for little to no cost (mana), and if pressed can also instant heal or even bubble and heal to full or (heh) hearth.Plate vs Mail is huge currently and the difference in BoAs favors the paladin as 1 weapon is all that is needed and the one available with the best enchant available is pretty effective. (Crusader on a paladin is nice)If I go ret on my paladin I can cut through a huge amount of mobs with little effort wearing worse gear than my shaman. Same sort of group requires the wolves to be up or I will die. Those puppies are a major factor in an Enhance shaman's ability to solo things.before level 58, they are about equal. Once you hit outlands, it gets bad.
