Ah, it's here!

My question is mainly if there are any solid plans to make Ret less faceroll-ish. Ghostcrawler mentioned something along the lines a while ago, and I don't think I'm the only one who's interested to see if anything will change.

One of the largest problems with Retribution is not that it does too much damage, but that doing such damage takes no particular skill, as far as PvP goes. Where PvE is concerned, Retribution is 'clunky'. There are too many cooldowns that need to be watched, too many global cooldowns that clash, and the fact that even slight latency has an impact on your performance.

There have been a number of suggestions that propose a debuff stacking system (similar to how Death Knights work I guess), although rather than the runes and runic power employed by Deathknights that give their strikes a soft cooldown, for us it would likely have to be a hard cooldown.

I'll give the issue a bit of thought over dinner and see if I can come up with anything myself. :o
