You know, there are times when class balance is a little shaky. Sometimes warlocks are a little over the top, other times it's rogues. Perhaps a well-geared and well-played hunter pew-pewing from the hilltops of AV.
And then... Then there's this bullshit, that's currently running rampant on the beta servers.
What the hell is this?
To give you an idea of the total horse shit that is ret paladin at the moment, why don't you take a quick gander over some of these time-stamped combat logs of my recent encounters with them. Keep in mind, these are assholes using GOREHOWL off of prince from kara.
Yep. 9k Damage in one global cooldown. Pure fucking balance right there. Gotta love beta. =]
Edit: Since apparently some people are having a difficult time grasping the fact that paladins are currently broken, and their coefficients are scaling way beyond what was intended (as often happens in beta), you might want to look at this.
Yes, kiddos, paladins are broken right now. It really pains me that I have to point out that no class should really be able to pump out 9k damage at level 70 in one single second. Sigh.
