Aug 11th 2009 5:51PM The prot holy paladin is a whole new problem, you don't have to tell me the frustration of fighting this type of healer - I'm a 2500 ret paladin. My point is to prevent such another occurence from happening. Allowing holy paladins access to another dps tool (in this case the stat "strength") with spells the do damaged based off such stats would bring this problem back again.
TLDR: Healers have enough damage to assist a dpser in a fight, but they shouldn't be given enough that it because a serious threat.
Aug 11th 2009 5:31PM I'm sorry, but this is a terrible idea. Already there are typically 3 dps plate wearers (I'm assuming warrior, dk, ret) in the raid, and plate dps is already too scarce, there's no need to add 2-3 others to this list.
Not to mention the problem in pvp, having holy paladins with insane +healing also using all that strength to shield slam (SoR) people ontop of all the holyshock / exorcism they have?
Spell power plate is fine, they just need to reduce the amount.
"Since that was two specs out of a possible six plate wearing talent specializations (2/6 = 1/3 = roughly 33 percent, I'm not doing a repeating) that meant that there was a fairly sizable minority that wanted the stuff."
Not true, a prot paladin would roll on spell caster dps swords and maces, but they would not roll on pure healing plate, it contained no hit, or related defensive stats.

Pmr in 3s?
Good god, stop posting this fotm crap. Show us something INTERESTING, show us something random, they don't have to be gladiators, show people in the range of gladiator.
I lost to a Disc/Elemental at 2k few weeks ago, i'd love to see an interview with an odd team like that, instead of the same fotm pally/dk, warrior/druid priest/rogue crap.
Mar 18th 2009 6:12PM I've noticed this, and its rather upsetting, running with myself (Ret paladin), A fury warrior and a DPS DK the plate dps gear is scarce, yet every single paladin in the raid (2holy, 1prot, 1ret) have all BIS holy gear just because it drops with absurd frequency.
Mar 18th 2009 5:35PM Our guild uses a loot council and a merit formula to determine loot. Performance, attendance, attitude and previous loot is all taken into account.
So far we have yet to have one complaint since magtheridon. A lot of peoplpe seem to think that it can be biased, and indeed it can. But, in my opinion with fair officers it is one of the fairest loot systems.
