I stand before you with some mixed feelings about this class. I have played my pally for about 4 years now and I always hit ruts where I venture off to a new main only to return to this class, particularly Ret. I am now part of a very large guild and due to my schedule I primarily only am able to participate in guild LFR and flexes. With restrictions of my playtime, I'm not honestly not sure why the state of my dps matters so much. Is ret always to remain the middle of the road? I may be too competitive with myself and want to strive for better numbers, but with the level of content I'm involved in, does it really matter? Should I look at a pure dps class like a rogue or will I always come back to ret?
I had a chance to jump into a 10M Normal the other day and I was crushed in the dps department, so my confidence may be a bit shot. Does anyone else feel this way or do I really need to look at another melee dps class like a rogue or shaman?
*Disclaimer: Forgive some of the tanking gear, I have some tanking bits left on when I logged out. I have the flex 4pc right now.
