Can we get a column talking about the changes to prot and ret in general, as some of them have been very controversial? The paladin forums and blogs have been in an uproar for awhile, and while much of it is the usual QQ, some of it (concerns about PvP viability, for example) is legitimate.For ret, you don't include a pvp build. In experimenting with various PvP builds, I've been playing with leaving out zealotry altogether, as it is almost always a dps loss in PvP situations. Even in PvE it is a *very* minor dps increase, and then only in optimal situations. It kind of sucks for our 31 point talent to be so abysmal. So perhaps we could discuss ways to make our 31 point talent feel like a 31 point talent.I'm also very concerned about the recent hotfix to ret, as it fixed our low damage output by making us incredibly bursty. While being able to chuck hammers doing 25k damage for 20 seconds every two minutes is fun, it kind of begs for the nerf bat, and the rest of the time we can't do much at all. This is primarily a PvP concern, but we saw in Wrath how PvP concerns about ret translated into overall nerfs.
