Please. Stop trying.
You rush at me, and try to hit me with your big ugly sword. Does it hit for a lot? I bet it does.
Do you know what I see when I see a Retribution Paladin rushing at me?
I see a warrior. Who doesn’t have charge, or intercept, or any way at all to close with me once I get away the first time, assuming you EVER catch me for the first time.
What I see is a crummy melee class that only has two stuns, one of which breaks on damage, both of which can be blinked out of, both of which are, at best, a mild annoyance that can be recovered from. If you could spam Repentance, that would be more serious. But you can’t. Your stuns are too far apart to be of any use.
What I see is a Mortal Strike wanna-be that can heal. Meaning, I have a spell-school that I can COMPLETELY LOCK DOWN and prevent you from doing any abilities. Like healing. Or bubbling yourself to prevent your rapidly impending death.
I see a melee class that cannot close to melee, has incredibly unreliable stuns that I can break in my sleep, and has the ability to let me lock out ALL of their abilities with a single button push.
I see a Warrior with all the necessary mage fighting abilities removed from the class.
Actually, you know what? Keep right on trying.
You Retribtion Paladins are causing my arena team’s rating to skyrocket.
And I’m paired with a beast master hunter, for fucks sake.
