Finally got shoulders, the last piece of gear I needed for a Heal set. And now I'm considering sharding every single piece of OS gear. Just 'cause.

My computer is randomly booting in safe mode for some reason, and I can't figure out why

The resolution is all off and it's saying my video card isn't connected to the gpu

Why do people go Holy? They're almost the entire reason lots of stuff sucks for Ret.

Prot can be a bro, but Holy is the bane of Ret's existence.

Elegon on LFR is always amusing.

Earlier this week, I had someone troll two people into running into the Elegon hole, under the premise that blizz added a barrier 'to keep people from falling in before the encounter'.

Then tonight 4(!) people fell in, and then a 5th ended up falling because he ran in before the platform reappeared. >_>;

Never change, LFR!

Because its the only way I can rock my xmog. (And I like healing over tanking)

elegon is a troll. he likes to drop the platform out from under you at random times.

i will admit, getting people to jump with the old 'they put a barrier in' trick never gets old. it was fun on blackhorn and on strand boats.

grass is greener?

with me its partially to reassure myself that i can actually still play all three specs, given that i usually run around as ret/ret i've had a bunch of people accuse me of being incapable of playing prot or holy.

but yeah, ret's gotten shafted a lot because of how powerful holy is. but then ret's been shafted quite a few times over shadowpriests too.

then there's pures going on about how hybrids are better because they can do x/y/z while pures can only do x and hybrids who like doing x and don't like doing y and z suck and are bad at the game.

Our winning strat .. 2x melee + tank on Sul, 100% interrupt of sand bolt, kill him before he can empower, easy win.

Well, don't waste your time with Kampfer. I went into it with really the lowest of expectations, and they were met.

It's nominally an an action/fighting anime where girls were chosen as champions to fight a proxy war and given the ability to transform and gain powerful abilities to fight the other team. However, one chosen champion was a guy, but when his ability activates and he transforms, he turns into a girl.

So, of course, the first ten episodes are just hijinks and shenanigans with him learning to live life as a girl (and randomly changing sex), then there's a complete farce of a fight, and then back to wacky happenings and softcore pornography.

Apparently the novels on which it's based are less schizophrenic, but still.

Edit: the OVAs are set to maximum lewd, I mean holy !@#$. This is not for children.

Ugh. Teams with rogues are chewing me up and then curbstomping my warlock partner. If they go for him, we win. If they go for me, we lose. :|

Eh... not that I think you're being SUPER SRS, or anything, but...

Consider that the Paladin was most likely never designed to be more than a healer and/or !@#$ty support. What it was envisioned as, I cannot say. But, if the vision was following lore, I can assume it's not at all how we were actually born into this game. When this game launched, Holy was the only tree that didn't look like it was designed by semi-retarded, paint huffing spider monkeys. It was stupidly overpowered, while the other 2 'specs' were garbage. (Yes, they were.) You went Ret for a buff but still healed, that pretty much shows the ridiculousness of it all.

We all fell for the 'Holy Warrior' bit. Some people made the other two specs 'work', IF they had a guild that supported their choice. Remember Prot's gimmick, the Reck-bomb? What else did that tree have? 15s off of HoJ? And Ret? Yay, Seal of Casino. A tanking spec without a taunt. A DPS spec without reliable DPS. Holy lived, breathed, and excelled... too much, even.

But everyone who played back then, knows all this.

I wouldn't blame Holy, that's shortsighted. Blame the butthurt that crossed over from EQ. Blame the lack of checks and balances that didn't seem to exist to keep tabs on the people responsible for keeping a handful of specs in the dirt. Blame pride and jealousy. Blame devs. Blame the player base. Hell, blame Obama if it makes you feel better.

Prots are bros cause they went through the same crap Rets did, although they passed the threshold from useless to viable in a fraction of what it took Ret. Holy isn't responsible. Of course, Holy didn't exactly try to help its brothers either (is it odd that I think of Holy as a female? :x). It was Holy or GTFO from even our own ranks. That bitterness is still around today, as you've illustrated. And many people still fight the lolret stigma.

I can't be the only one that got full on trolled in TBC by strangers and guild mates alike. I can't be the only one that literally got hate mail in my box at least once a week, minimum. I can't be the only one that got whispers saying nothing more than "LOLRET" for no other reason than to remind you what most of the community thought of you. I wish I was making this up. Holy isn't to blame for any of that.

We've come a long way. When Ret finally reaches perfection, it will most likely be because Titan is finally out and all the %^-*ty players will have a new Blizzard game community to defecate all over.

Or maybe it's when we can hit Inquisition and make pplz asplode!1 Amirite?!

Sorry if that rambling seems like it was aimed at you ;o

Btw, if that Chibi doll thing's purpose is to make people feel like pedos, then I guess they did it right. Why the !@#$ am I picking out underwear for what looks to be a child? Ugh.

So far I've been blessed with nothing but stupid rogues that get knocked out of stealth by my hunter partner, who then proceed to blow vanish or (even better) prep+vanish.

Spriests seem to be the bane of my existence this season. I'm definitely going to have to learn to better spot their burst combo setups more effectively.

Overall I'm really liking ret this season, though.
