They are a constant disappointment in groups. They have low health, no single-target aggro, they take too much damage. They pull slowly and somehow cannot hold aggro on more than a single mob.
Oh what did I say? I should have said Why I hate bad prot paladins.
When I join a group and see a prot paladin, I think "oh good, no CC, this won't take long at all." Then they start marking CC, waiting around for sap, standing around before pulls for no apparent reason. It's clearly not the AS cooldown since they never use it.
Why do so many prot paladins fail to be the absolute badasses that they are designed to be?
