What spec is like ret pally?

Paladin
I want to roll an alt and I love the ret pally playstyle. Anything similar to it?
Rogues, I have a lvl 90 assassination rogue and it seems very similar to ret, combo points=holy power. Except rogues do more damage at 90 and they never die in raids due to feint :P
Enhancement Shaman!
Ret paladins play like Rogues.
Ret paladins play like Rogues.


Except, unless you do the level 90 talent, you can't have extra combo points. So, if you have the maximum of 5 combo points, it doesn't save any more.
Rogues and Ferals play somewhat similar, but I'd have to say that Windwalker Monks are probably closest. Between the resource building and the off-healing options.

Shoo, angry warlock.


Actually, there is some small degree of similarity between Arcane and Ret - more so at 90 with the Evo maintenance talents. It's certainly not a favorable comparison by any means, especially being a spellcaster versus melee. Arcane, though, is much less involved and interesting than Ret, and is severely lacking in group utility.
Enhancement shaman possibly?
Your best bet would probably Windwalker Monk or Feral Druid. Maybe even Enhancement Shaman.

I just recently started leveling a windwalker and I'm having alot of fun with it.
Enhancment shammy or arms war?
At the rate this thread is going, we ought to just list every melee class. :P
Well, asking what is like the ret paladin "style" is kind of vague. It doesn't mean the same thing to everyone. Depending how I interpret the question, I'd give the same answer as Ebill; enhance or arms.
Hmmm pretty sure Rets have value outside of the burst....if you don't think so then you don't know Ret as well as you think you do...
...prot paladin

I could not help but laugh my ass off at this particular comment.

Well played.
If you're going for mostly that 2-handed weapon dps feel, Arms Warrior isn't too far off. Although I've never leveled one to max, so no idea what they're like at endgame.
