I feel like the poster above me is trying to spread disinformation. It is not worth doing dailies as holy. I leveled 1 to 90 as holy also but it does not matter how much skill you have or how well you know the spec. The fact is, unless you reforge out of mastery, your dps just won't be high enough to justify not doing dailies as holy. And even then, retribution will still be faster. Holy has no aoe damage.
My advice: suck it up an collect a retribution set from greeding or needing in heroic dungeons. When you run a dungeon check if there are any plate wearers in the group. If there aren't, need away on ret gear you will use. If not, greed or ask when it drops if it's ok to need for off spec.
I do not find it fun to quest as ret but as they say "time is money, friend". Collect the ret set and be content with knowing questing as ret is a lot faster than questing as holy.
so there's really no need for a ret spec unless you have a full set waiting in your inventory as it is.

Correct. But acquiring another set is nowhere as difficult as people make it out to be. It's not like building a Ret set is hurting you or anywhere near as hard as, say... Inquisition.
Sorry, couldn't help myself :x
I completely understand the expenses involved with maintaining a second and even a 3rd set. But I'm just talking about dailies and gearing up a second spec for them. You don't need Dancing Steel or whatever else, ya know? Simple enchants are cheap. Green gems are cheap. You could get away with being a cheapskate and get the blue 415 rings and neck for maybe 300g a pop. Set limits per piece, don't give in to price gougers ;o You aren't gearing for heroics or raids, just running around smacking mobs for 30m or so :P
All the armor options I listed in my first post very low cost. The other stuff, yes, can add up. I could say that making money in this game isn't hard. Let me rephrase that, despite upkeep costs in this game, you can pretty much break even as long as you are actively out doing things. If you buy a set and then sit on it without doing dungeons, raids, and/or dailies you will lose money. It's an investment though. But I'm sure we're all swimming in our Scrooge McDuck money bins filled with hundreds of bags of 30g by now.
Also, alts. I know not everyone has the time, but you can become self sufficient in this game without too much effort. Even with one alt, you could find a way to provide enough of a profit to pay for small things one by one. I don't do everything I can on every toon I have, that'd be ridiculous, but with little effort on one toon I can break even after a week. There are people like me that have too much time on their hands and have every prof covered at max level, but I can't expect everyone to do the same.
If you don't have alts, and feel like the Ret set is needed, then start saving gold and throw it in the LOLRET jar. But as it's been said, it's not necessary. Just be prepared to have a few moments of frustration now and then if you go Holy.
I'll have to try doing them in my Holy gear one of these days for !@#$s and giggles.

i tried using my gear but using a second spec to talent/glpyh into as much dps as possible... its not bad but lacks aoe and can get annoying doing 1 2 2 2 1 2 2 2 1 3 2 2 2 /repeat
Other classes can usually just swap specs and do fine, but holy pallies would literally need another entire set of gear to go ret or prot and do dailies unless they are able to find a group. So is it basically find a group or bust?
