I've gotta say, the patch changes really were for the best (at least so far). The constant monitoring of procs got a little easier, and I don't find fights where I'm struggling just to hit everything while it's still available. That said, I think we're still a bit too reliant on procs. I've gone entire dungeon boss fights without getting a single proc, and others where I've gotten them as fast as I can press the buttons for four or five seconds. It's better, but still results in massive swings in our DPS (or at least mine).

4.0.6 definitely feels a little calmer to me too. It's terrible - I've always been very dismissive of "rotation helper" addons, claiming that you should know your spec well enough to play without one. However, a month or so ago I gave up and started using clcret - and wow, what a difference it made. Now, I'm starting to get the hang of things again, and getting the finger reflexes and muscle memory where it needs to be, and I'm trying to wean myself away from it again; but for anyone having ret rotational issues, give it a try.

Honestly, there is no reason not to use CLCRet or any other rotational aid. It keeps your focus on the encounter, allowing you to provide certain utility where needed or move. There are times when HoF/HoSac/HoSalv and even HoP are of great use, one of your cooldowns can save the entire raid, so get your focus out of your bars and get it onto the encounter.I'd be incredibly surprised if any of the top 200 rets on World of Logs don't use CLCRet/CLCInfo or some form of those.
