That's it, I've had it!

It's time to nerf retribution paladins.

I've been retribution since day one of playing this game, and have never respecced.  I would get 900-1000 dps (before the patch), which isn't the MOST, but it's more than a lot of people get.  I would often be first in both damage done and dps in successful raids.  Even then, I would occasionally be laughed out of groups with the quite familiar "lolret".

And I was the only ret paladin on my server that people recognized as being devoutly ret.

But now, every paladin I cross is retribution.  I try to get groups and they say, "Sorry, we already have too many ret pallies."  I always ask who they are, just out of curiosity.


How frustrating.

So for my sake, nerf retribution paladins again, so all those other paladins can do what they do best: conform.

Aww. Yeah, if you renew now, you'll see that you're suddenly not unique. I'm hoping that order will be restored soon. It is fun. Ret is very much a button-mashing spec now, haha. It sort of was before, but even more so now.

Yeah, and now there're a ton of ret pallies I see doing so many things wrong. Seal of corruption, seal of command in PvE (okay, okay, it's not a bad choice, but I've always found seal of blood to be optimal), seal of righteousness (lol?)... like WHAT IS GOING ON?

I definitely agree. It's nice to top dps charts effortlessly (and by a huge margin), but it's really not fair.

Honestly, all of Ret's dps-improving talents are accessible at 70, so I think things will even out a bit at 80. For example, warriors can't spec into titan's grip and still get 2-handed specialization (or so I'm told). So I think things will even out a bit more. Still, ret needs a bit of a nerf.
