I think ret is fun to play atm and is doing pretty good, here is my story;
Duel wise with Divine Purpose/ double Freedom and Selfless Healer i can outlast pretty much any classes and win, TV hits pretty hard 50/90k ish , Crusader and Judgement/Censure seems great to me, Holy Prism is a awesome spell "LOVING IT " Hammer of the wrath is a total waste right now, its really bad!! i give 2 thumbs up for dueling as ret, lots of fun!
Arena wise i did enough to have a good feel of things; we have great off heals that procs none stop with Divine Purpose and Clemency is of the chart "LOVING IT" double Hand of Sac. etc..
Ok yes some classes are broken like hunter teams with stampede witch is totally broken, having 5 pets on you that ignore resilience is pathetic, ill keep that for a other thread sorry,
but things will get fix am sure, overall for arena i give 1 thumb up and i know Ret will do just great in Arenas
For Battleground witch is what i do the most, I love cranking my tunes and PvP for hours !!
I really feel like a one man army as a ret right now, i am always in top 3 damages if not the first even if i use a lot of wog to support my teammates or to heal my self, i do feel like we have holy lights up at all the time and the 4 set bonus is really good, if i would play like a retard and ignore the strategies i would finish first in damage Most games NP, Yes some other classes have more Killing Blows like Dk/Warrior and Sp, our finish move is !@#$ty and i should even say none present but i do not forget that i am a supporting class when i play and i seem to never die /Wog/ Selfless Healer/Freedom my self out , Heal again and back to war, having no cd on Wog is BEAST. For bg if i had a third thumb i would use it, 3 thumbs up!!!
Conclusion: Hammer of the Wrath needs a big buff, i try to avoid it at all cost right now.
Overall compare to other classes i say we are doing pretty good and yes some classes need some abilities nerf but it will happen at some point, hopefully.
For the record i do not have the best weapon now but fully honored gear and i will do a couple of dungeons tomorrow morning, therefore; do not comment on my weapon, ty :)
