I continue to say that with the right gear, prot spec can be a viable PVP spec. With Devastate being such a low rage ability, it can be used quite a bit. Granted you don’t get massive burst damage with this spec (other than execute), but you can still dish out significant damage, and you will really shine if you are coupled with other melee players.
I haven’t had much luck getting arena teams to let me try out this spec in 5v, but I actually feel that in a melee heavy 5v team, that you could do okay.
On a related note, as Horde, queue times for AV have gotten ridiculous. I was queued for nearly an hour and a half for this particular AV. Come on Alliance, I know you guys had it EZ Mode for the longest time before the change, but don’t QQ and just refuse to go anymore, learn to win at the new AV!
