Blind Cd Nerf in 5.2

Rogue
Post Limit:
So just a question here... With the Blind nerf in 5.2 how do you 1v1 cap on a prot warrior in RBGs? His trink is on the same cd as blind and you cant sap him soooo... Any thoughts?
Hope that your Blind and his trinket are desynch. It just might happen :P Otherwise I don't know.
Yah, this does really suck...
I was actually super excited way back when they were going to reduce it to 1min. Man, that would have been awesome. Having a legit CC in PvE where you could always keep the target CC'd, even in Combat would have been very nice.
Aww ok... So you have to bait him by sapping and capping...He pops BR, breaks sap and lasts for 6 sec with 30 sec cd attacking you and then you vanish. Wait for DR and resap cap, baiting his trinket, when he trinkets you blind and cap = profit :) Thanks to lonewolf for pointing out

If you find yourself sitting in stealth at a node for nearly a minute before getting the cap you're doing something wrong. How do you cap on a warrior then? For starters you're combat which gives you a 8.9 second kidney shot which is more than enough to cap on
Same way you should have been doing it.

Sap, get berserk. Vanish. Wait for Sap DR. Sap as soon as DR is up, not allowing Berserker Enrage CD to reset. Get trink, blind, cap.

It takes about 30s start to finish. It's also sort of a moot point, because good warriors won't sit in sap cap range. Sometimes you can bait them by sap, sprinting to flag, dropping smoke bomb and capping in it if ground is unlevel (heroic leap gets screwed by elevation changes, can't charge into bomb). After a certain point though, most won't be sitting right there and you're better off going to a different node and just trying to gib the defender
