No disrespect Mr. Blue, but his point was that rogues are killing people in under 3 seconds with the legendary daggers.

I don't care if PvP isn't "balanced" around 1v1. This isn't a 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 5v5 issue. This is an issue, just like all legendaries, being overpowered in the PvP scene.

Preface: I have not fought a rogue with legendaries yet, so this isn't a QQ about nerfing them. Something SHOULD be done about legendaries in PvP though.

You should be more afraid of Frost Mages. At least Rogues can be peeled.


Oh wait no they can't. Every single thing a frost mage does is dispellable.

Dispel removes 1 thing every 1.5s.

Any target a frost mage looks at routinely has 4-5 dispellable(Frost Nova, Cone of Cold, pet Freeze Nova, Deep Freeze, Frostbolt snare) things that are constantly being reapplied.

Math's hard.

Community- "Why doesn't Blizzard ever post here"
Blue- "Hey guys, we really are terrified to post here because you people analyze everything we say"
Community- "No we don't, we just want to see your presence"
Blue- "Hi guys, you should just try and relax and try some new strategies."
Community - "BITE HIS THROAT!"

Also, from my own experience, when I was having a lot of trouble against a certain class or spec that I felt countered my usual tactics, I found it helpful to sometimes grab a friend that played that class and spent some time dueling them so that they could critique me on areas where I could improve my skills, including my timing on using certain abilities, and how I could counter some of their own tactics. That way when I stepped back into arenas, I was more confident in my own skills and felt better-prepared for how to expose the weaknesses of my enemies.


Personally, I've found leveling each class and trying it in PvP also helps greatly. Then you know all the tricks each class has.

I've been playing my freshly 85 (8th alt) Rogue and it's been a lot of fun, but more of a learning experience for me in knowing exactly what a Rogue has and what they have to do to get their kills.

I wasn't aware frost mages didn't have a global cooldown my bad.

Oh and it appears they can cast things by merely looking at opposing players, and apparently no longer have cooldowns on any of their abilities! Looks like I need to trade mine in because he appears to be broken.

Hyperbole is hard.

Actually considering the topic at hand I think the responses have actually been rather restrained.

I think the CM is trying to do the right thing but trying to brush off Rogue balance issues and telling the OP to try RBGs which Rogues are even more OP in is going to annoy a lot of the community. We need actual results not just kind words.

I am starting to wonder how many of Blizzard's staff have been on the sharp end of these issues. There does seem to be a lot of misinformation at times coming from them.

I am not surprised there are not major changes. They are trying to get the next expac set up. If you really think about it, they have to reinvent the game. Remove stat inflation, change all the talent trees, balance the talent trees, balance a class, balance a race intodroduce a plathera of new things to do.

I mean, as much as Im pissed I don't play my warrior anymore, its a game. I can play an alt, I can level, and I can imagine what next expac will be.

you might also consider browsing some PvP videos from other members of the community to not only help inspire you, but to also arm you with a further arsenal of tactics that you can use to your own advantage against opposing teams.


Oh...I get it.

You mean...like this one?

This thread shouldn't have made it pass 1 page (no offense OP)

Why Vaeflare chose to post in here and turn a somewhat useless thread (again sorry) into a 5page one is beyond me when we have a few constructive threads floating around that actually press on the issues we have been facing in pvp.

I didn't know I could have all my novas up at once and that spamming them all at once wouldn't totally DR them and make me useless the next 30 seconds!

No need to be so snarky but that said, your point is still valid.


I didn't mean to be.

Vaeflare seems to be a really nice, friendly guy.
