Feb 24th 2009 10:30AM There is no currently known WotLK boss, who does actually parry-haste. So yeah, QQ some more. Reckoning is fine.
Nov 5th 2008 4:34PM I tanked our Sunwell raid today. I noticed a slight difference in TPS and DPS, but nothing to get me worried.
The WWS Parse shows, that Judgement makes out only 6% of my total Damage, with Consecration, Melee Swings and HotR at about 20% each.
In a raidbuffed situation our threat generation and DPS is actually fine. BUT we DO have more problems now to actually kill things when we solo. Especially if you can not pull many meleebased mobs together, a lot of our damage used to come from the Judgements, which have been seriously nerfed.
It's actually the same problem Holy Pallys have and i fear there wont be done anything to fix this before the WotLK leveling process. This is the real downside of the Ret Nerf. Ret Leveling will be fine, Holy and Prot Leveling will be a lot slower then other Healers/Tanks.

Oct 2nd 2008 8:34AM You sir, have absolutely no clue how the game works.
Sure, Plate/Bubble/LoH (i did not think anyone would bring this argument up again) used to be somewhat good. But to me, it seems like you were hiding in a hole for the last 2 years.
Also you obviously have never played the end-game, where it is absolutely possible and very easy for skilled Paladins to run out of Mana. Why do Pallys need a Shadow Priest and Chain-Pot, while Priests and Druids get insane amounts of Spirit based regeneration?
If Priests/Druids stop healing for 15 sec, they can probably regen at least 25% of their manapool just with their Spirit - a thing Paladins and Shamen don't have. Also, would you like your Mana Tide Totem to silence you for the duration it's ticking?
People should stop seeing only the powers of other and the weaknesses of the own class. Pallys and Shamen should unite and work together to get a proper regeneration mechanic and mobility in healing. What you do here, is just the plain opposite.
Jul 8th 2008 6:29PM dan, maybe you did not notice, but in tbc the key talent of the paladin class (illumination) got nerfed by 30%, while the key regeneration stat for priests and druids (spirit) got buffed by an equal amount.
also the way holy paladins scale with gear does not really compare to the awesome scaling of resto shamen or coh priests today.
t6+ content is where the mark of the game is set today, noone really cares if pallys topped the meters in kara 1,5 years ago ;)
Apr 8th 2008 8:04PM Actually i was using Parrot until it stopped working in 2.4.
I always noticed, that i had a quite low frame rates in regards to my system spec.
When i disabled Parrot and made the step back to SCT/SCTD which i was using before i made the switch to Parrot some months ago, i actually noticed increased FPS in many situations. For example the Hyjal trash AE situations tended to slow down my frame rate to an unplayable level with Parrot. I actually gained up to 10 FPS, when i switched to SCT. I never thought, this otherwise great AddOn could have such a big negative impact on my performance...
