Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be..

A guild member pointed this out. It doesn't say exactly from which date the poll was conducted, but I can pin-point it to at least less than a year ago (around february 2005).

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

As they have significantly less votes in other polls, someone probably poll-bombed it to peak palas.

Or: It might have been a poll made before crusader was fixed (or when people realized it was fixed).

Aye, something posted in February, when most in the US were still <40 and the actual release month of WoW in the EU really has no relevance.

Paladins have, at no point in the past, ever been overpowered. Even the old SotC bug produced an increased in DPS equivalent to SoC on slow weapons (or if you'd prefer, Windfury on faster ones). Heck the fact that it has been buffed in 1.9 shows that the 'fix' that was performed oh so long ago overly affected the skill to the point of redundancy.

I remain unconvinced that the majority of the playing population have a brain cell between them, much like readers of tabloid newspapers or watchers of Fox News. The new insistence that Rank1 Consecration+JoF for aggro generation was an exploit is symptomatic of a player base that has no clue about what they debate and offer 'advice' on.

Oh, and in other news, SoC cannot proc whilst you are silenced. Fantastic.

Watchers of CNN, on the other hand, must share a collective mind by your reasoning. Much like the Borg or the Politbureau. Democrat resurgence in 2006 my comrade! Odd minorities of the world unite!

However, one thing that the users of the forum are good at is the witty one-line rejoiner.

Anonymous - learn2argue.

That's quite a leap you make, even for a no-name on the internet. Probably been reading too many of those political blogs haven't you? You know the ones, full of rhetoric but so little substance. Find them in 'lefty' and 'righty' flavours. Ring a bell?... ah, there you go.

In case you didn't grasp yet, my political leanings have no bearing on my posts in this blog. You want commentary, go find an off-topic forum and pick a fight with some liberals.

ironically, suicidal zebra goes straight for the Politician's Reply of the Weasel (+10% to dodge the point)

Well, I watch Fox News on occasion and like to think myself relatively intelligent (:P).

But, back to the original topic. I've played my Pally since January last year. He's never WTFPWNBBQ too much. I've seen him do some amazing things (such as survive a complete party wipe in Gnomeregan by doing the last bit of damage to the boss).

But the problems have always been there. Aggro retention is a massive problem. Mana to damage conversion has been extremely inefficient. Defensive skills are mediocre.

None of these have been resolved with 1.9.

I'm actually a politics buff. I love to talk about politics. I do it every day and I hope to graduate in collage soon and become a Political Scientist, working in researching and studying political behavior as a living.

But this is neither the time or the place to discuss it :P

Elderin is right though, combat options have increased in 1.9 but they're limited in raids. I'll write about this as soon as I get my computer back later tonight.
