I see a lot of people complaining about paladin ret dps. I am not sure why people are so up in the air about it. If you want a pure dps/hybrid class you should play a druid imo. Ret paladins play a lot like arms warriors right now. It's basically you role in, throw your normal cooldowns and wait on procs. It's how they intend players to play with giant 2-handed weapons. It's a little slow at times, but you should see real crazy out of control burst damage in PVE situations. I leveled from 65-82 as straight up prot. Last night I got some crazy blue axe from a dungeon and went ret in my tank gear (which is all mastery, stam and str) and have been facerolling mobs. I straight up aoe pulled 12 ogres for some quest and killed them all without freaking out or popping any cooldowns (took about a minute). So, quick synopsis: If you are having trouble killing things then you are doing it wrong. Paladins are an aoe melee dps class, and you should play them as such. Haul in, grab like 4-8 dudes, pop your aoe stuff and keep your spells on cooldown and you win. It might be the easiest class in the game to play right now if you pretend for a moment that you are immortal. ^_^
