No real changes aside from HoS possibly being given magic dispell.

Most likely going to be stuck in mediocrity again.
FoL is being buffed

It's just an Agincourt lackey.
Ret should be pretty good, the next tier bonuses are very strong (at least the 4pc is, unless the next tier contains a lot of AoE). Ret also scales very well with gear, at least in this tier. So under those assumptions and without any extensive PTR testing at all I would estimate Rets to be pretty good next tier.
Thanks everyone.

Are you trying to imply I was carried somehow?

Yea you're clearly an idiot.

Nice purple mog :o
I've been raid testing pretty regularly with my guild, and from the looks of the DPS charts, as well as talking to numerous other top guild ret's our burst is fine, but our sustained damage in the 5.2 PTR current state is horrendous.

On pretty much every fight at this point ret is falling to the bottom of the DPS charts besides a couple of classes after about 1-1.5 minutes of our "decent" burst during cooldowns. I honestly didn't want to believe the numbers after each and every testing, if we dont get a sustained buff it is going to be a LOOONG tier.
I'm more interested in seeing how they tune our T15 4pc, because I highly doubt it will go live in its current state (40%).

- We are going to buff Seal of Justice and Seal of Righteousness damage. Neither of these Seals is seeing enough use. Justice was always intended to be a strong PvP Seal, and it just isn't right now. We haven't solidified numbers yet - I'm just sharing our intent.

pve aoe buff, pvp seal buff(maybe, if the damage is greater than censure stack)
