Nov 1st 2008 8:58AM lol ret paladins could destroy anyone in 2-3 global cooldowns. If a couple of crit's happened they could kill a prot spec even. It was crazy. However the real problem is blizzards nerfs seem unable to address the burst paladins can do 1/minutes without reducing damage for the rest of the time.
Go read blessing of kings (good paladin blog) for a reasonable suggestion on how to fix ret.
Also wings needed to unable to stack with bubble but it needs to not cause forbearance. If it causes forbearance you can't use wings in arena ever. It is OP to use wings while bubbled.

Oct 11th 2007 10:02AM My guild pulled Kael the first time last week. It is a ball breaker. I had thought Vashj was hard. But Vashj is nothing compared to Kael. Al'ar and Vashj are hard but nothing compared to the suck that is Kael
Jun 13th 2007 8:49AM One of my guildmates has this and it rocks. It stands out a lot more than any of the other new mounts. However I think the best mount is the http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32458 flying mount
"By far the best is the Raven Lord which drops on Heroic of Sethkk Halls from the guy you have to kill for the druid epic flight form: Anzu."
Jun 5th 2007 9:49AM I play a 41/20/0 pally. I've never been ret. I like the class. The 41-point prot talent is really good if the pally tank uses it. We don't have a high threat ability (sunder) so we need that to get initial threat. I've done a heroic with a prot pally who due to health/gear couldn't take hits from the trash mobs but with the 41-point talent and a frost mage and 2 hammer's of justice we could kite the mobs and it was fine. Got to love Heroic's the trash is 4x as hard as the boss.
I think paladins are fine where they are. We are still (arguably) the best healers even after the 2.1 nerf. I do around 45% of the healing in my karazhan runs and we bring a priest and a druid. Paladins can tank, the needed gear isn't well understood so many people are giving paladins a bad name for tanking. Ret tree is underpowered but you can't be good at everything. PvP would be broken if Ret tree was better. Paladins pwn PvP dude to healing in plate as it is.

May 31st 2007 8:57AM Cheer! Now every class has a list of things that need to get done before a raid. Do them and bosses go down quickly and you don't wait around forever for people to finish doing the dumb stuff they should have already done. If you are a Hunter do this stuff. If you are not a hunter do most of the stuff.
1. have reagents
2. be repaired
3. bring the right resist gear :)
4. have consumables
May 17th 2007 1:43PM WoW was reinvigorated (sp?) by BC because it allowed people to play and receive good loot without raiding. The lv70 5man/heroic tier 2 look alike sets rock. People are complaining about how bad karazhan loot is in comparison. Heroic's are almost pugable and fit well into a casual playstyle.
