Infraction: Beta whine
Message to User:
You're rerolling. We don't care.
Although it was quite obvious we were over the top at level 70 and some nerfs were required for that level, what I didn't get was why they intend to keep those to level 80, where our burst would have been way less powerful against people with 22-25k HP. A logical approach would have been to nerf us on live to keep some balance, then revert it all at 80 and go from there. Nerf us again if needed, leave us be if not.
I was outraged by Divine Storm change and all our +critical damage gone (for a spec admittedly based on big crits) that hit us one day after 3.02 went live and continued to be so listening to confused GhostCrawler explanations of us having too much burst etc and that our changes will be 'surgical'.
However, this is all in the past now. After last changes (~20% Seal and Judgement damage reduction across the board, HoW usable at 20% and especially a 55% plain nerf to JotW) I just had enough. I'm not even mad anymore (and believe me, I was VERY mad after any of the last nerfs), I just given up. It's way too much even for me, who had a Paladin as my main since I started playing and I just love the class.
So, to conclude, just changed my sig to something appropriate and decided to roll a Death Knight when WotLK hits. At least my wife will be happy about it, as my endless complaining about how we are being screwed over and over started to upset her lately.
Of course, I'm still hoping for improvements to Paladins so I have a reason to come back (it's by far the class I like the most), but playing it in the current state it's starting to feel like a bad joke.
