"You have wronged the paladin community"

Read this thread, cause Jaxon hit the nail on the head (though excessively worded at that). He is saying what we're all thinking right now and presents the arguments to boot.

It won't get a blue response. They ignore threads like that. But, we can successfully force them to more or less respond to this issue if we keep lobbying for it. It's possible. It happened after the Test of Honor campaign when our community was extremely grumpy and upset.

It's all about staying focused on the message and repeating the talking points.

(It's threads like these that keep me out from the Blizzard Fansite Program, doh)

Now that 1.9 has been around for a few weeks, I'd like to see statistics on the number of paladins playing compared to before 1.9. How many joined me in retiring their pally toons?

I've noticed a LOT more Horde mages around, and I like to think that the undead mage is the exact opposite of the paladin: not the fey Alliance (and the bane of paladins), no healing abilities whatsoever, smoking dps (literally). Those who are bitter about their pally experience will have an axe to grind with melee, with healing in general, and with the Alliance.

Hmmm. Come to think of it, my main these days is an undead mage.

Ironically, I could never get my paladin into any of the best guilds on the server, because they had all filled up their pally quotas long ago. My druid took about 2 weeks at 60 to get into a GREAT guild, only to find, that we are frequently short on pallys. Most in the guild now play their alts. I played my pally again last night in ZG— there are times when I miss her, but mostly, damn, I'm glad I switched.

Patch 1.9 didn't bother me as much as the stories that WoW keeps telling us.

They keep feeding the Paladin community stories. Like the latest issue with the Priests. This is nothing against the Priests changes. They got theirs; that's fine.

However, when we asked about the total lack of a revamp, we were told that WoW was reviewing each class in order of their view of what was needed. So subsequent reviews would be even less than the Paladin's.

Now, we find, once again, we're being lied to. WoW is providing 1-4 new talents per tree for Priests and changing some talents to class skills. I am curious to see what "nerfs" are going to happen.

I agree, the more I hear about the talent changes for priests the more I have to wonder why they weren't dealt with in 1.09. The vast majority of the Paladin changes were pretty cosmetic and not even as close to as important for endgame as increasing 'big heal' efficiency, PW:Shield scaling, the Priest holy tree in general etc etc.

Maybe they just wanted to get the Paladins out the way so they can get back to ignoring the community... who knows.

Whatever it is pretty academic to me now. I've deleted my 60 Paladin after 10 months and now playing 4x Warlock. The way things are going, I doubt i'll be subscribing for another month, though that's not because of 1.09 but for other reasons.

I think they drop they nonsense about CMs not being class reps and give each class a rep that plays the class. And if you can't find a single CM who plays the class....maybe the devs need to stop and think about why that is.

I'm probably one of the few who actually started playing their pally more after 1.9.

Mostly cuz I'm stubborn and that I hadn't really played the character in months. Despite how much I complain about the class, when I started playing my pally again it made me realize how much I missed it.
