In one of my more recent posts, I said;
I know I’ve been told that Retribution DPS sucks compared to other classes, and the reason for it is to compensate for a Paladin’s survivability in PvP. I’ve been told that I should just accept that people aren’t going to want a Ret Paladin in their runs, because we don’t, ahem, “put out”.
I’d like to point out that the key words in those sentences are “I’ve been told.”
I never meant to suggest that *I* believed it. I meant to suggest that there are clearly people out there that *do* believe it… and when you’re trying to get a group with strangers from the community, it doesn’t matter what you know, it matters what the majority of the community believes.
Hey, a lot of people in the community can believe that Greg Street wears briefs instead of boxers, that doesn’t make it so.
Noobs. Ghostcrawler is too manly for briefs.
He goes commando, of course.
Now that I’ve left you with that mental image, I’ll move on.
To prove that I bear the retribution Paladins nothing but love, I’m linking to two of my absolute favoritist Retribution Paladin bloggers… and I invite you to recommend your favorites in the comments. (Ret, not Prot… there are tons of great Prot bloggers, darn straight, but they get all the love already).
Morrighan is simply awesome, and has great informative posts mixed in with fun, and Jong… well, Jong has expressed a love of Bacon and Bruce Willis in the past. How can you not swear allegience to a man like that?
In other news, I think I need to make a Pally alt on a server somewhere called “Pallywhacker”…
In closing, I’d like to show you a little sample of my night last night as a Retribution Paladin, for those who wonder if I actually am doing anything other than sitting in /Trade pining away…
See? I DO play my Paladin!
And my thanks to The Zug Initiative for carrying me along with you. 🙂 It was great fun.
