Should I switch to Ret to max my dps???
My dps as Protect sucks should I go Ret???
at the earlier lvls I was amazed at how fast i killed. now Carma has caught up , I am taking more of a beating and taking way longer to finish a lvl88 mob.
I am wondering about Ret, I see they have a damage spell from distance, but I really like throwing my shield , hehe , but Dang i got to go thru like 3 cycles of buttons to make a kill now.
Prot relies on three stats, now - hit, expertise, and haste...Mastery, too, to some extant. Use Blessing of Might, bring up your hit and expertise to make sure your attacks connect, stack haste to reduce your swing timer and ability cooldowns, and use Seal of Insight for survival. You really shouldn't have problems after that. And make frequent use of Shield of the Righteous for massive damage reduction.
The other tank in my guild and i were discussing this over the past few days. Just make sure your hit and exp are where they should be, and then just stack the haste on top of it. I concentrate on my DK as my main so this pally is a little behind the times, though i am starting to gear him. My guild mate though has an item level of 497 and completely reforged and gem for haste, and he has seen a considerable increase in DPS as have I, though i don't have anywhere near the gear or haste he has. But i will say this, it really does take the "is it dead yet" thoughts away when you stack haste.
Questing: respec ret and finish leveling
Questing: prot - pull more stuff. You can't get haste levels at 88 to do serious dps, vengeance will help that. If you are killing one mob at a time, just respec ret
Dungeons: run them till your eyes bleed as prot
88-90 really only takes a few hours now either way
