Remember When?

Remember when you had to cast Avenger's shield, same with Holy wrath?
Remember when you had to spend an eternity and a half trying to kill one mob as ret?

I remember watching the cast bar fill up as my Arcanite Reaper was being crafted. And the guy saying "I really shouldn't make these for paladins."

I remember when Paladins couldn't use Axes.

Remember when Divine Storm was spammable?


With 4piece T16 and Divine Purpose talent, I assure you, DS is more spammable than ever before.
I mean like 8 globals in a row were DS lol
Remember Divine Intervention, oh how I miss you.
Remember the Tiny Abomb Jar

Remember when we stood at the back of the raid and did OOC resses .. and that was it?

No, because I...

Remember when the only reason to bring a Retribution Paladin was for Blessing of Kings?
Remember when there were 40 player raids and the role of the Paladin was to cast 5 minute blessings on everybody .. and once you'd done the 40th you'd need to start from the 1st person again?

... was too busy doing this. #Ret4lyfe.

Remember when we weren't tanks even though we had a Protection tree?
Remember when we needed spell power armour for tanking and DPS?

I tanked back then. It was not easy, but I did it.
For dungeons... and OTing the boss for UBRS because no other tank was online. I felt awesome after that.

I'll pass on pretty much all of your nostalgia driven wants - as a class we are so much better now than we have been in the past.

You're right, but there are so many things, as a Ret, that have been taken from me which made me truly feel like a Paladin. These days, I may as well be a Warrior.

I would like a spammable non-target AoE.

The day we get something that isn't a heal or seal and has no CD, will be the day I cry from happiness of things changing that need to.

Remember when HoW was terrible?
Ugh, don't remind me of old school seals.

That was so irritating, it's not even funny.

I miss Divine Intervention.

I also miss having unique buffs. I still don't agree with the fact that pretty much every single class can buff the exact same way. If they want every group to have the exact same buffs, why not just make them baseline when you zone into the instance? Uniqueness and variety were what made buffs cool, now they're just an afterthought and that's sad.

I also remember the days when Holy Paladins just stacked straight intellect, nothing else. 40k mana used to be a big deal if you were a Holy Paladin.

Auras were fun. I used to love putting on Retribution Aura and watching lower level players kill themselves by trying to kill me (obviously ones high enough that actually could land a hit on me every so often).

Ahh, the good ol' days.
I remember in Vanilla the best spec was points on all 3 trees to make sure you had the right abilities.

I remember that everyone would look and laugh when they saw I was playing Ret in Vanilla.

I remember when Burning Crusade came out and I was still playing Ret and suddenly everyone was yelling NERF Ret....

And gosh dangit I miss Divine Intervention!

And being trolled by Ghostcrawler....
allot of these things we defenately should not get back i don't miss them at all, but i do really miss auras i remember being stunned in wrath and watching rogues kill themselves on my ret aura.

i also miss devine storm from wrath when it dident share a cd with anything else and was part of the rotation

also already have one from this expansion, i miss the burden of guilt talent
Protribution, 2shotting well geared toons with AS, ShoR stacking block value

Ardent Defender was auto proc, and damage reduction below HP threshold

Buying grain in SouthShore as per mount quest

When Censure was so called bugged for 2 expansions
