I have looked at 4 guild recruitment sites and they all specifically say, "Not interested in rogues". I am not saying that there are not guilds looking for rogues just that the majority seem to shun them.
I have only played this game for a a few months but the more I play the more pissed off I am that I choose a rogue.
Is there anything rogues do really awesome. Kick is nice but other classes have interrupts also...
You would think since the rogue is limited in the roles they can play they would at least be kick ass at one thing to make up for it.
Pallys and Druids are like the swiss army knife of classes and don't suffer in anyway for it. It almost makes no sense to choose a rogue when a druid can do everything just as well as you and then some. So is it retarded to play a rogue? Anyways that is my rant.
Make me proud to be a rogue what can we do that will make us a necessity in a guild and have more people appreciate us?
They most likely aren't interested in Rogues for a few reasons.
1. Rogues offer little in the ways of raid-utility, this isn't Vanilla where we were one of the only interrupts, now almost every class/spec has a way to interrupt, and alot of them do it better. All we offer is 8% spell damage taken, as opposed to a frost mage who offers:
Max mana increase.
Spell damage increase.
Raid-wide mana regeneration.
Effective AOE slows.
10% healing reduction.
2. Rogues are melee, stacking alot of melee is preparation to fail right now, because too many bosses have anti-melee abilities such as air phases, etc, where melee can't do anything, and ranged classes aren't suffering at all.
Because of the above two reasons, you can only take a few rogues (2 or 3) to a 25man raid, and probably only 1 to a 10man.
Retribution sucks, so no, Paladins aren't really a swiss army knife until Ret gets buffed hardcore.
I can't give you pride in a class that you obviously dislike. You're better off rerolling if you aren't satisfied, just remember that every class has its ups and downs, this right now is probably Rogues hardest time in the history of WoW, we were often close to the best, if not the best at alot of things, we scale very well though, so once better gear comes out (t12, t13,) we will most likely be doing very well. Rogues always suffered at the beginning of expansions, its just how we are.
Our DPS is still very strong though when done correctly. If you manage to get into a guild, and preform well, you can expect to be taken into raids much more often by them.
