Prot + PvP Heal.

That might change, though. I'm saying the Holy Build whose second tree is Prot, picking up Divine Guardian. I won't be 100% as effective in PvE, but I'll have Imp RF and DG along with all the PvP benefits. I like healing in PvP as long as I don't fight a semi-non-retarded Resto Druid.

My goal is to PvE as ret and I think I'll get the most enjoyment out of my offspec if i make it pvp viable and out of practical concers when it comes to daily quests/farming etc I think ret is a better offspec choice then holy.

I also think it'll be better in a raid to be able to switch from tanking to dps since most raids should require a constant amount of healers.

Prot and PVE Ret.

I'm going to be playing in a small 10-man guild. I'll trade off tanking bosses with the other tank for the most part and when I'm not tanking, I'll go lolret for funsies.

Probably going with PvE Heal as my other spec b/c I don't mind switching to healer mode when the need calls for it. I played for two+ years as a Priest healer in both vanilla WoW and TBC.

Prot and PvE Ret for sure.

Although I would probably have chosen PvE holy if this feature was around at say, BC launch, since I despised ret with a burning passion for so long, but having messed around with the new Ret on Beta, I sincerely love the changes Blizzard made to it and will enjoy dpsing when not needed as a tank or as a switch up.

And hell pve ret doesn't really sacrifice much in the pvp areas so I can still pvp on the side with it for fun.

I've never actually tried ret, so i'm picking it to be the secondary spec, you normally don't need any more healers on fight where is only one tank needed, so going pew pew will help the raid more.

I just don't like Ret. :( Admittedly, though, it was mostly because, "If I want to DPS, I'll use a DPS class." After all, they're superior. Since this is no longer the case (supposedly), it may be different.

All I have to say about Ret currently:


DIVINE STORM!

Whirly hammers of awesomeness are fun and the dps is definitely competitive.

It was somewhat amusing last night. I had several of my friends from PuGs whisper me last night to make sure I hadn't gone ret (as many of the paladins on my server are now doing the ret thing).

Either Prot PvE/Prot Pvp (<3) or Prot PvE/Ret PvE. My prot pve spec would double as my trash spec most likely, have to see first though.
