Have you guys noticed how since WotLK our threat generation has been degrading? to the point of being in MoP. Being in a raid with any other tank as offtank or co-tank, on AoE pulls or Trash pulls, the other classes press 2 buttons and they have aggro all day, while us, following any of the known rotations we can't do anything about it anymore.
I remember back in the day there was nothing any other tank could do to take aggro from us but to taunt. Now it's us taunting every 8 secs on trash pulls because no matter who's there by your side, if it's a non-pally tank they will generate more threat than you.
Tonight I was talking to some guys on the server Stormrage (US), because I have a toon over there, and the feedback I got was really lame, the 5 guys I talked to were upset at how even now in single target fights in SoO they were losing threat to druids, dks, monks, etc.
I wonder why is blizzard doing this to us? do they even know? I wonder because I'd like to think that they aren't destroying our spec on purpose, I'd like to think that they haven't noticed.
Last time I checked, the most played classes in this game were Hunters > Paladins > DKs... why would they screw up 1 of their most played classes? do they want people to stop playing their main toons? or maybe just to have them stop paying their sub and go play a different game?
I have played this game for almost 7 years, and I never found myself on the position of being thinking of other games as options because Blizzard have gradually destroyed the Protection spec for paladins.
Now, I know there will be people who will disagree or they'll just want to troll, I do not care for them. But for all the other paladins out there who feel the same way I do.
If you guys feel the same way please leave your feedback here, maybe at some point someone important will read this and they'll actually look into it, though I don't hold any high hopes after seeing what Blizzard has done to us Paladins since the end of WotLK.
I would like to play my paladin again, but earlier in MoP I switched to another toon because I got tired of how the other tanking classes had such a superior threat generation compared to ours. I think it's only fair that if blizzard still want paladins to have a protection spec, to let them tank properly, and by tanking I'm not talking about giving us cooldowns or more self heals. Get our threat generation back up to what it was. We used to be the highest threat generation tanks and it sucks the way it is right now. If not, then at least give us as much threat generation as a DK or Druid has, because you're really taking the fun out of the game for us tanks who really love tanking on a paladin.
Well, like I said, if anyone feels the same way please leave your feedback here, I just hope that someone read this and to have Blizzard say that they are aware of it, or they're looking into it.
Thanks and kuddos to all the pallies who are still tanking out there and putting up with all of this, you guys are great and deserve like the rest of us to have our spec fixed, so that we can be up there with any other tanking classes on the threat generation department.
