It just occured to me that anyone might happen to click on my armory profile and find quite the odd image; a supposed voice of Retribution running around as Holy! WHAT GIVES?!
Well, sometimes one must make sacrifices in light of reality, and the reality in WoW as of WotLK is, "LF1M, need healer."
Currently, our guild is suffering from a healer shortage, one that I've little doubt has become fairly prevalent across the realms. Under these circumstances, it has become necessary that I hang up my two hander, for at least the time being. How permanent a change that becomes remains to be seen, but I certainly expect Naxx progression to be made purely as holy.
That said, I never take my eye off Retribution changes and concerns, and even given the simple factor of this blog's name have no intention of discussing any non-Ret issues, at least not outside of the context of Ret or the occasional general "how to raid" kind of post. As soon as dual specs occur, I'll certainly have my other spec be Ret immediately, and will always keep track and commentary focused on Retribution.
The time is good to be Ret, but with a brand new tank/dps class in the game and so many healers itching to try a non-healing class, healers are needed worse than ever, and I'm doing my part for now to alleviate that.
