Our DPS has been pushed to the point of bottoming out. I kill things faster as a tank then I do as a Ret.
We've again been reduced to waiting for cool downs and now it's worse as we wait for Procs. We are down to 2 normal buttons of attack We can Either CS or DS and Judge.... that's it.... Everything else is a proc or you need to build up 3 points of Holy Power to use one of your attacks. I have often found myself already waiting for procs and cool downs to go off so I can push another button instead of sitting there praying something will come up.
Speaking of DS and CS... sharing cool downs? Really? You strangle our DPS off while granting other DPS Boosts? Yea sure thanks for Inquisition but we need to build up to 3 holy to use it really and it takes 3 CS strikes to do that unless we get lucky amd something procs ( around a 30% chance ) and the it ALSO grants a Holy power ( another 30% chance ) Err go.. you have a 30% chance of a 30% chance to get another HP stack.
Judgments... is it me or are judgments do a dismal amount of damage now? Judgments to me didn't get a nerf stick... Blizz dropped an entire tree on them
Now if I may.. wasn't this the problem that we faced in BC.... horrid DPS.... Waiting on cool downs? Isn't this why you changed Ret Pallies in the first place Blizz? Now you take us right back to that spot again?
I don't know.. Maybe I'm rambling bit it seems to me Ret paladins are now the bottom of the ladder... one fix I know could really help this is give us DS and CS back on separate cool downs. I can under stand Hammer of the Right and CS sharing cool downs.. I use one for single target and one for groups... but as for DPS... this isn't working.
Blizz.. please... go back and look into this.
