So...I am tempted to gem and gear crit. Is this a bad idea? If so, why? It seems like my crits are quite valuable.

i wouldnt gem crit, because strength is more beneficial, crit is valuable but, make sure you dont choose crit over necessary stats like hit and expertise and such.

I have played Ret Pallies for a long time--and we are totally nerfed---no way a ret pally stands a chance against a mage or lock--they have tons of cc's and can blink and invis---I feel that Ret Pally is now the worst melee period---oir DPS stinks in Raids and In pvp we have to wait for holy power to proc!----this is crazy!

Imo It's not the worst melee, However Ret paladins rely on CD's more than a rogue nowadays

Prot Aura against melee and Resistance aura vs casters

Vanguards buddy, i see you're now reforging to Crit instead of Mastery, would like to hear your opinion on Crit vs Mastery

With the 200% crit heal buff, I'd say Crit pulls ahead of Mastery. Also helps to close the % gap in Last Word. I'm sitting at around 26% spell crit with talents.

So I haven't really tried PvP in Cataclysm much yet. I got this guy to 85 in a few days after launch and played for another week or two after that before forgetting about this game for 8 months.

I've followed the spec and glyph advice of this guide for the most part but I've found that I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing in combat. Am I waiting for three charges of Holy power to hit Templar's Verdict all of the time? Or am I getting it to two charges and making sure Inquisition stays up? Should I be using all of it for WoG healing teammates? I'm pretty much only going to be doing random battlegrounds, at least until I've got some half decent gear.

It's just more random panicky button mashing than I'm used to. I'm definitely rusty.

3 Holy Power for TV always. With Inquisition I generally use it at the start of a fight, refreshing whenever something isn't going to die anytime soon, & if I'm unfocused at range or have excess Divine Purpose proc's (Only if there's no one around in need of WoG).

In random battlegrounds I wouldn't exclusively save my holy power for WoG on others. It's all situational really. Is there a dedicated healer present? Are they CC'd? Is the person you're healing undergeared & likely to be 2 shot? :P etc.
