Outside of PvP in 3.0, Ret has been lackluster or mediocre for pretty much all of WoW. In Legion however the changes made were not at all for the better. You win some and you lose some when it comes to how your class changes pan out at the start of every expansion and Paladins lost this round.
Yeah, the truth about paladins is that Ret has been the butt of the joke for PvP for as long as I can remember. At least now we have abilities. Better than auto-attacking like it used to be...
I've never understood how something so iconic in the blizzard world has been consistently derided. It seriously feels like blizzard hates Ret, and doesn't like the rest of the paladin much better.
The GF has pretty much switched completely from her retadin to a fury war. They thrashed the class quite a bit and per her description, the rotation just feels like crap now. Can't really blame her, I mop the floor with ret paladins I see in the invasion stuff, and she does more dps with a lower ilvl war, so hard to argue.
It feels like once somebody decides to attack me during an invasion, there isn't much I can do. I hope level 110 + pvp talents can salvage the spec.
