I would have commented on ret, but I don't play one. I can only provide an insightful opinion on classes I play :P
Hence the toonswapping to post about my experiences as two different melee hybrids.
My bitterness wasn't directed at you, that said my two 90s viability has just been destroyed, while warriors and mages remain as strong as ever.
Also if you want to try Ret I wouldn't recommend doing so atm, the spec is completely broken in pvp. Pve really isn't much better, it's twice the effort for half the damage in most cases.
I'm just so burnt out and frustrated right now:l
