Aiming for a Resto druid, mage ret comp Symbiosis seems too good for druid-mage.

hyrbid dps + mage + resto druid is going to be a ridiculous comp regardless of the hybrid class, having TRIPLE offheals with symbiosis on mage (healing touch) as well as ice block on the resto druid will make killing anything impossible.

Hopefully hybrid offheals get severely toned down

I don't think you want to have a macro to remove wings anymore, since it's not dispellable and won't benefit anyone but you.

Also, I usually just keybind shortcuts to the two specific item sets, one with shield and 1h and one with 2h. Doesn't matter though.

You can't outdamage second wind without some burst, you have to be lucky to land crits and bring them down to the 20% barrier and be quick enough to land some hammers, but outside of that you can't actually kill them.

Class has the weakest burst of any melee spec, sad how far they've fallen.

I'm ripping my eyes out right now trying to grind honor, 90k pyroblasts 3 times in a row, 150k chaos bolts every 15 seconds, and just many other nuisances are making this incredibly tough. Does it get better with full gear? Can I look forward to ret being viable in RBGs or Arenas? I hear so many mixed things and I draw my own conclusions, but I am so lost right now.

What are people's thoughts on utilizing HotR? It hits like a wet paper towel, but its debuff (-10% physcial damage done for 30 sec) seems incredibly valuable. Basically +10% resilience for you against a melee, for the cost of a gcd. When glyphed, the debuff lasts 45 seconds, but I don't believe it's worth a glyph slot. The ability still grants a charge of HP as well.

Opinions?

To be honest, probably wouldn't be that bad if every single other class didn't have some kind of self heal

And up the damage of Execution Sentence. Honestly, our lvl 90 tier seems a little weak compared to other classes

Ret damage and usefulness killing stuff in RBGs is a total joke

If you're having trouble killing things, you must be doing something wrong.
