About an hour and a half ago I dinged 80! My main and my very first 80.
(pause for polite golf claps)
I'd like to thank members of the rogue community, especially those who posted on the old forums, and those who patiently answered my most basic and idiotic of questions.
I started playing in June. I leveled mostly as Combat, up until the patch that all Combat rogues will remember forever, when I switched to Assassination. Who helped me with the transition? You people. Who helped me learn the techniques to be the top damage-dealer in my dungeons? You people. Couldn't have done it without you.
Now, since I went from being a relatively well-geared and efficient damage-dealer for my level to being complete and utter crap in the span of seconds, I need to go do something about that. If you'll excuse me...
As someone who has watched the rogue community closely, I can assure you that any help you have received was given completely unintentionally.
So you're saying that none of you wanted to give me any help, but I took some anyway? I feel very rogue-ish now.
