I tried out ret pally dps today, and I didn’t do all that bad considering I still had a blue cloak, missing enchants (don’t have the rep yet for shoulders or head ><), healing belt, pvp sword. I think I hit 65k on the last boss in WoE and 25k on Murazond. Plus my gear looks cute.
I also got complimented in TB by a hunter named Ogas who said I did really good and when I asked if they were joking said “no way! you were awesome”. I did like 6k dps that battle but I think the comments were mostly geared to my talking about how the battle works in raid chat. Still random compliments are nice. Usually I get called various forms of “idiot” when trying to get people to win.
