Mar 19th 2008 7:45PM Every class is gear dependent. The difference in the case of paladins is that the paladin's baseline abilities are so underpowered that they need large amounts of gear (and be spec'd into the role to be filled) to even be viable, and once that is the case, they are still underpowered by the same offset, it is just less apparent. Gear is only mitigation against broken class mechanics. For paladins it very difficult to fill any "hybrid" role because they are so dependent on gear and spec to fill any one role well, except in the case of trivial content for their overall level of gearing.
