I feel as though ret needs a lower global cooldown. Everything progresses slowly as a ret. When I'm being kited, I need to pop hand of freedom as a reaction, yet I can't when I need to, because of the GCD. The skill cap of paladins could be increased by far had blizzard made paladins have a lower GCD, and then we would have been able to focus on things such as mastery and crit again. Haste feels weird.
Haste doesn't actually increase any of our damage directly which is also disappointing and kind of awkward for a melee burst class.

Yes, that's the entire point of haste: you do things more often. We have another stat for increasing damage directly, it's called Strength. It's pretty good too.
If you want a lower GCD, get more haste. That is, again, the entire point of haste.
