    Default Sweet mary mother of god ret pallies

    AAAAAAAAAAWWWWW YYEEEAAAAAHHH
    Colour me excited, I've just seen what they're doing with rets
    New resource, Templar's Verdict (225% weapon damage + seal = ROFL), attacks which actually have synergy (wet noodle strike actually does something interesting), totally new rotation system

    Divine Storm unlimited targets and, with 3 stacks of holy power, 90% wep damage on all of those (though it is probably affected by the AoE damage cap)

    Looks like rets will still be the premier multi target melee class, with divine storm hitting unlimited targets and, with 3 stacks of Holy Power its gonna hit like a train. Holy Wrath can now be used on any target, it just stuns undead and deamons in addition to damaging them. So between Seal of Righteousness which now hits 2 additonal targets, divine storm at 90% weapon damage with 3 holy power, Holy Wrath and perhaps consec if your mana can stand it it looks like its gonna be mental for AoE

    Perhaps what I like best is that the single target rotation is going to be just that, pure single target - Seal of Vengeance, CS, Judgement, Exo and Templars Verdict it looks like, so now we wont have the awful "stop using AoE's" "we can't" "****ing Palainds" situation we have now on stuff like Deathbringer

    Can't wait to get home and get on the beta!

    ... ... ... ... ... I foresee the nerf bat incoming on the above before launch. It sounds too overpowering!

    Yup, sounds a bit like the beginning of TBC all over again. Awesome, devastating power for about 2 weeks, then huge swinging nerfbat for the next 6 months.

    Enjoy it while it lasts!

    You mean WOTLK? TBC was LOLRETLOL

    I reckon Templar's Verdict will get nerfed, for the simple reason that people will cry horribly about any skill a paladin has which hits hard

    I only hope I can have fun with it on the beta before it gets destroyed

    Ah yes, you are correct, the memory is a bit hazy these days as I don't really play any more.

    QFT - gets my vote - come the glorious day - get all the ret palis, put them in a field and bomb the b@st@rds



    I gave up PvP for 6 months after WOTLK - it was just ludicrous.
