What happened to stealth?

Rogue
Post Limit:
Let me preface this with I played a rogue during vanilla WoW and stopped after BC launched and just picked up the class again with MoP.

What happened to abilities like multi-shot, chain lighting etc. not breaking stealth if the player couldn't see you? Seems like I get anywhere near a player in a BG, stealth is going to get broken by some broken AoE mechanic.


they gave us subterfuge to balance this, so instead of fixing stealth or buffing it, they gave us a stupidly op ability.

on that note it kinda ruins rogue v rogue duels too

Stealth isn't fair. When you stealth, you become invisible to the people around you. In order to balance the game every class needs a viable method of unstealthing you. I'm surprised monks don't have a flare ability yet.


Yea but a Hunters barrage on a player 15 yards away shouldn't be hitting me in stealth?
in my opinion they should redesign the rogue so they dont have to rely on stealth all the time, they should increase thier defense so they can fight well when not stealthed

make it so they dont die in 3 seconds lol, when unstealthed

I'm pretty sure walking breaks stealth nowadays


Walking has always had a chance to break stealth, it's long been the most annoying thing about the class IMO. Except in Cata where you could get shadowstep at level 10 and telefrag stuff instead of walking up to it hoping the RNG doesn't hose you while you're playing your glass cannon melee class that's horribly dependent on getting the drop on absolutely everything it fights.
the game has grown beyond blizzards control....they can't fix anything without breaking other things
dat necro
i remember this time in tol barid bg iwas on my rogue at wv ,large allie group came up stairs sat on flag spot ,poked a couple i hit vanish ran down back stairs made my way in stealth to gy side gate in stealth did i mention i was in stealth and watched a dk up top of stairs his worms ,grubs whatever they are make a bee line for me then attack me out of stealth

when i complained was told we have better stealth now i prefred pre cata vanish and stealth

while leveling to 90 i could see other stealth classes sometimes was told its a lvl thing higher lvl better detection
Back when I was playing on a PvP server, I remember just strolling about questing in a Contested area. Was having stomach problems that day and I remember farting one time, and there were four rogues staring at me, wide-eyed, one of them said something along the lines of, "Uhhh.....Hi....."
Even better, barrage can hit you through obstacles. I was doing Isle of Conquest and was coming up to the Alliance fortress and there was a battle outside their gates. A barrage shot went straight through the rock and hit me, pulled me right out of stealth. Took 5 more seconds of running before I even came upon the hunter who shot me. Ridiculous ability.

If you played during vanilla, why are you surprised by this?
