I honestly don't know why people keep screaming for buffs in PvE, Ret is FINE
Nothing is wrong with Inquisition. It isn't clunky, it doesn't feel wrong, our priority doesn't need to be easier, it doesn't need a longer duration, it doesn't need to be off the GCD. If you are really that bad at managing it, pick up the glyph, pretty sure it is there for that reason. If there wasn't a penalty, that glyph would be mandatory.
We do NOT need Baseline DP, our spec has little RNG as is, There are other ways to balance us if need be if we even needed a boost. The talent would have to be re-designed, and it's fine as is. Let people that like DP/RNG take the talent, it's optional, doesn't need to be mandatory for the other billion paladins that hate it.
Stop asking for a crit change to HoW, it isn't needed, and hasn't been the case for several years. This change in particular would be even worse ( especially for PvP ) in current content.
In addition, Hammer of Wrath hits fine, it is NOT an execute ability, stop thinking it is. It is however, our hardest hitting HoPo generator, can be used at range, and still does decent damage. Why do some players think we are warriors?
People reallllllllly need to stop using Simcraft, ESPECIALLY Noxxic's version of "realistic dps" to judge how our performance is in PvE. Simcraft serves one useful purpose - getting your weights.
But seriously, stop asking for buffs that we don't need. We are still competitive, there is no reason we need to be top 5, and the disparity between the specs that are consistently ahead of us isn't large to begin with.
The only melee that I see on a consistent basis from parses with a pretty decent gap is Fury warriors, and Assassination Rogues/Combat rogues depending on the fight.
With this being said, Frost DKs are higher than us on some fights, only because of the mechanics of their class. For single target, Frost DKs, Enhancement shamans, Feral druids, Combat Rogues, Windwalker monks, and Ret paladins are pretty much on the same page for melee.
Unholy DKs, Subtlety Rogues, and Arms warriors are consistently below all of those, however, this is partly due to not having enough parses to evaluate, and well some specs just not being up to par, like Marksman.
