Infraction: useless in so many ways
Message to User:
Yes, it is a general whine post. You're whining and not saying anything worthwhile. That makes it a whine post.
The abbreviation "etc." is short for "et cetera," and should always have a period after it to indicate its use as an abbreviation. It is also redundant and stupid to use it consecutively.
Use your Shift key when posting. This includes the first person pronoun, I, every time.
The ellipsis is not used in the manner you apparently think.
Basically, this post sucks and if it's an example of how you tend to post I welcome the one day we get without you repeating the performance.
I see a lot of people puting up calculations of ulduar BIS gear (known ofc) for ret paladin and coming up to theoretical numbers around 5800+ dps.
A lot has been spoken on the damage we gained/lost between 3.0 and 3.1, ranging from lack of undead mobs, to the nerf of righteous vengeance, to the buffing os exorcism, etc,etc,etc.
I have a lot of interest for another class (warlock) and going on their simulations, i see theoretical dps ranging from 6500 dps (worse spec) to 6900 dps (best theoretical spec), and those simulations are being done with... tier7.5 gear.
I can't help but feel a little unease with 3 situations:
a) Lack of theoretical dps - Every single parse from 3.1 i've seen so far shows ret paladins below all hybrids.
20% of our dps rotation is aoe based - might be a problem in CC / control situations (that are non-existing so far but heard in 3.1 have a comeback)
c) Armor penetration is the new "FOTM" wich does less for us than other melee classes
Please dont consider this a general QQ. I love my ret pala and i'm genuinely concerned about the "fun" part of the game for me in ulduar ( and ofc, the general performance (a).
For all the theorycrafting people out there, do we have a chance to compete or ... not?
