Shodaran: Is it my turn yet? Can I go now?

Darkmystic: Please, by all means enlighten us, if you must. Your wealth of knowledge and experience on the subject should provide us with insult fodder for quite awhile.

Shodaran: Huh?

Xavieria: /facepalm

To be honest, I haven’t been playing a pally long enough to do anything but copy and paste the cataclysm changes. I’m not going to do that as there are many great blogs out there with great insight into how the changes affect the class. Two of my favorites are linked here:

So, however you like to receive your info, be it humorous or serious and insightful, there’s your fix.

What I can tell you is why I enjoy Shodaran. It has been said several times that a paladin is easy to play but difficult to master. I truly enjoy facerolling DPS good enough to enjoy heroics. In todays WoW society where Gear Score is king, without decent numbers, its hard to get a group to stay together.

It’s a catch-22, to get better gear ergo better gear score, you have to run heroics for badgers. If you show up for a random heroic in quest gear and on first pull do a whopping 1100 dps, guess what? That’s right, either you get booted or the whole group disintergrates.

As a ret pally, I can faceroll the numbers to stay in group, plus I get the experience I need to progress to harder content when my gear allows. The only other class that can do that, in my opinion, is a DK.

My only hope is that my skill level with this class is up to par by the time Cata is released so that I may adapt to the changes.
