I have been playing ret since the day this game came out. As I was in a heroic last night, I realized just how awful ret was. I felt it was a "job" without rewards... While watching a warlock push 2 or 3 buttons and able to out-dps me in worse gear, I realized something has got to give. I cant spend my entire playtime staring at cooldowns, watching holypower, hoping mastery procs so I can do competitive dps, and giving myself carpel tunnel.
With that said, here are my ideas.
Remove Inquisition. Change our mastery to "Increased Holy Damage."
Lesson Templar's Verdict damage and make it Holy Damage.
Give said TV, a 5 or 10 percent change to hit twice in a row to make up for the old mastery mechanics.
Guardian of Ancient Kings should be changed to something like "Avatar" and make it so we change into the Angel itself. Keep the ability the same but with the one said change.
I would almost say just get rid of holy power and put everything on a CD like it was before...
but that is never going to happen. So meh...
Anyways, if you think of anything please post. Id like to hear feedback... both "for" and "against."
