There is no point to the utility argument PvP
We do have alot of damage, but we wouldn't need that if we just had some strong, life saving utility for ourselves or teammates.
So... yes, we wouldn't need [some tools], if we had [other tools]. This is an almost universally true statement though, and not especially illuminative here.
And a fear break.
We do have alot of strong, life saving utility but we wouldn't need that for ourselves or teammates if we could just do decent damage.
Yea, Ret Paladin CC and Utility are really strong.. CHARGE SHOCKWAVE HEROIC LEAP CHARGE "FUUUU"..... *dead*
I heard someone arguing that it was a numbskull no skill ability like warrior's second wind, but I beg to differ. Sure it was passive, but waiting for it to proc before hitting yourself with a wog or two certainly takes a little more skill than doing nothing.
Also divine protection useable while CC'd would be nice.
I always like a little extra survivability:)
Nowadays, in the brave new world of MoP, the fully passive damage reductions are gone, as is the Cata SS, but the presences, etc., remain (and some of them give better defences than ever). Funny how removing 'boring' passive effects always seems to hit Paladins harder than others (e.g. the old CC duration reduction talents). This leads to a cycle of 'rationalising' class abilities, nerfing pallies, followed by having to buff Ret's personal survivability (because Prot's is seen to by virtue of being a tank spec and Holy's by being a healer and because it's always made viable), then another nerf, another buff...
I'm not saying that Ret is terrible, but personal survivability seems lacking. "Focus the Ret!" is still the rule.
