"But the problem has never been reality with frost mages. The problem, as ever, is perception. The community feels frost is overpowered. Thus, PvE buffs never stick. We get them, but then some poor warlock who was too busy putting on eyeliner and singing along weepily to Coheed and Cambria to play properly has his face blown off by a frost mage in PvP, and those buffs are blunted to the point of irrelevance." I am problary going to be slammed for saying this.But that pretty much sums up the history of ret paladins aswell.

This is mostly true, but there was that one point during Wrath (The point where you could Bubble + Avenging Wrath = Instant Win) where they were legitimately overpowered. I had never even done any ret PvP at that point, but I pulled out my ret pally to test it out and I was stomping PvP geared people in my PvE dungeon gear (My pally is primarily a tank). This legitimate (though very short) sting of OPness is what has been the source of ret pally frustrations ever since though, which kind of sucks, because they're not nearly as dominant as many people still decry.

That was actually pre-Wrath, after the end of the last BC season.We had that hotfixed two days before a patch, too.Because, you know, two days before a patch in a point where no arena games mattered was absolutely necessary. I'm not saying it was unnecessary, but the timing was awful.

I agree with this so much. Isnt a skilled PvPer supposed to be hard to kill? If not, what's the point of skill?
