Our dps at the moment is substandard compared to other classes. If you don't believe me check the logs for topend guilds and tell me how many raiding rets you see doing competitive dps (or even being allowed to raid). I've been looking at logs on world of logs for the past hour and I'm completely disheartened. I know my class, and i hate that we've been reduced to praying for rng to even have a chance at holding our own.
It's sad when TV which was designed to be our go to move is now our third hardest hitting ability. It's even sadder that the difference between a good ret and a bad ret right now is rng. If a bad player gets enough exo procs, they're gonna stomp all over someone else's dmg.
Here's my suggestion. How about we work on fixing things blizz. I'd like less rng in our rotation and have it be more about skill. Right now we're the most rng dependent class. Also, fix our mastery. Why are we the only dps class with a use it or lose it mastery? Have you noticed that we're all rushing to reforge that stat off our gear yet? It's a terrible stat for us. Last i checked, it takes roughly 7.12 mastery to even equal one strength.... I haven't even ran the numbers for agility yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if agi beat mastery for us in terms of being better.
That just seems sad. I don't even know why i'm posting since I'm sure we won't ever get a response from someone that they'll do something about it. I understand that it's early in the expansion, but these are all issues that were mentioned during the beta. Still we wait and hope that something is done. I don't even want a response with a specific answer to our problem. I just want to know that they're actually reading these forums and making an effort to address our issues. Well, that's enough rambling for now. Back to leveling another toon since I'm sure ret is going to be dead for another content patch or two.
