@PvP Ret Paladins, also Lobster
Don't want to hijack, but another interesting question would be why people switched away form ret, but that should be a different post
I switched to Prot from Ret during Cata when we were the only melee class without slows - which made gameplay beyond frustrating.
For other Pallies during MoP I suspect it was a similar lack of abilities that are common to most other melees in the game (reliable defensive cds, undispellable cc, lack of cc removal, etc). [This is my conjecture of course]
We can blow things up every few minutes (because the Light/love is the greatest power in the universe, mofos) but otherwise we are medium DPS with extremely good support. I rolled Pally knowing and wanting to do this.
