Oct 29th 2008 2:58PM For people truly wanting this type of play, buy an account and don't upgrade to the expansion packs. you will be capped at 60, resilience would at most be a few enchants but not baked in enchants, and you could play all you want. Have the community pick an existing server they would like to play on. with naxx gone the best you could do is AQ40 but should be hard enough O.O
Oct 15th 2008 3:30PM So a PvE priest went against a PvP Pally and died? Well ya, its all about resilience. if a pally is allowed to have his full 33% crit and has all the best pvp gear against a cloth toon, you will get destroyed. Have 350 resilience and you have all the time in the world because the pally looses 1/2 his proc abilities when he can't crit. That alone would have cut his burst dps in 1/2.

Oct 15th 2008 3:16PM We all know they are only considered OP because its all tuned for lvl 80, just like people thought they they were OP in PvP right before BC because the powers were tuned to lvl 70. When they nerfed 2.0 (along with not having resilience on the pvp gear and horrid itemization in general) ret pallies got hurt so hard they almost disappeared entirely from the game. I hope that this time, Blizzard takes a soft hand a waits before swinging that nerf bat. 1 day, 1 week hell even 1 month in not enough time to tell what an end game ret pally on a mature sever needs.
At most, I hope they just fine tune the lvl 70 seals (while keeping the after 70 seals in tact) so that it doesn't seem so overpowered.
