A lot of Holy paladins dally with Ret when they’re not busy raiding, and with good reason: Ret has never been more fun, dynamic, interesting or well-balanced.

A few links wot I recommend:
Josh of Eye For An Eye has posted an excellent guide to playing Retribution in Wrath – for those of you planning on picking up PvE Ret as your second spec, this is pretty much invaluable, especially if your last experience with Ret was back before Molten Core like mine [...]

I got an email about this from David, the site owner, a couple of weeks ago, and I haven’t blogged about it yet due to the deluge of 3.0.2-related posts and playtime. Thanks for the headsup, David!

As reported by Pelides over at The Delusional Hunter, there’s now a decent Mac port of the WoW Model Viewer.
I look forward to the hilarity that will ensue. You can have a lot of fun with the model viewer. :)

I’m behind on my RSS feeds, so I espied this in Leafshine’s blog rather than the WoWInsider post everyone else seems to have stumbled across: Blog Azeroth, a forum for WoW bloggers to talk about, well, WoW and blogging. And WoW blogging.
