Oct 16th 2008 8:43AM Ret pallies are getting hate because they're now THE best burst dps class in pvp.
Saw a rogue with 12k hp, 450 resil get an opener on a ret pally, got stunned, then got blown up in the space of around 3-4 seconds.
Now, I can beat ret pallies. I've beaten quite a fair share of them even after 3.0 although it's a bit more touch and go now. But when I see ANY class do 3000dps in pvp on a high resil target I have to step back a second and say "That just ain't right."
The most messed up part isn't that it's paladins doing it. It's that any class can do it and ESPECIALLY if anyone can do it with short cooldowns. Hell, this is why resilience was implemented in the first place, to prevent two shot city.

Max, they've said that they're making Starfall undispellable.
Aug 13th 2008 8:29PM As a mage I'm worried about going against BM hunters with deterrence. Nearly 30 seconds of relative immunity to my snares, 10 of which are made up of CLoS like resists? Combine it with fd for interrupting my spells and master's call removing novas and I'm hoping there's something I can do against hunters other than just run.
(Bring back deadzone already!)

May 11th 2008 9:07AM Everyone forgets that the Ashbringer will play in with WoTLK. Do you all remember Tales of the Past III? Thrall, Jaina, Saurfang, they were all nothing more than side characters that helped the Ashbringer take out Arthas. They didn't get any hits in, but they sure as hell helped him get the final punch in.
