Just a question. Why can't rogues use Prep? It's allowed in rated pvp and has a 5 min CD. It would be like a pally using bubble, none MM hunters using rapid fire, shamans using earth/fire elemental totem, none frost mages using iceblock or warriors using reck/retaliate/shield wall.

One more question can I duel the winner for fun? :D

Prep is not like rapid fire or bubble.

Bubble resets the fight once, where as rapid fire, fire ele is a damage cd, Ice block is not as effective without a healer to heal the mage up in it and just serves as a way to clear cauterize and other debuffs, and shield wall is just damage mitigation at the cost of losing damage from being in defensive stance and having a 1hand wep and shield as apposed to a 2h. Prep gives rogues two vanishes, allowing them to reset the fight twice, not including the other advantages such as another step, and sprint, as well as smoke.

ferals going bear form shouldn't be allowed.

If you dont want the feral to regen during frenzied regeneration then don't attack him until the cd expires, as he only regens per the rage he has. Have fun kiting.

not every class can kite, 50% slow, charge, bear stun, etc. it's worse than prep and you're allowing it. posting on a rogue and not allowing your own classes skills shouldn't make people reason that you would know that it's imbalanced. dueling isn't balanced, not allowing prep isn't going to fix that.

if we were to do that we would really be just saying druids need not apply. prep isn't a core mechanic of the rogue ferals would have a hard time doing anything if they can't go bear. Do I think ferals are balanced? oh god no they're rediculous, but we can't control everything bro. I understand your concern though

You should allow prep.

If you're worried about resets, limit the Rogue to a single vanish, and/or force Rogues to open within 10 seconds of a vanish so that they don't just recup/vanish and wait 2 min to regen their health.

Yeah, I would leave prep in too. Just make the restrictions the same as a regular arena match and not allow the stupidly OP ones like lust/LoH.

Do I get bonus points for heroic leaping backwards?

by leaving prep out you're just widening the gap between them and classes that destroy them.

if you're going to ban certain skills based on your opinion, at least ban skills based on specific match ups. Rogue vs Frost mage without that prep his little chance to win is shattered.

Sad that this just turned into an argument about Preparation, seems like a fun idea!!

I'd join in but I don't think I even have 100 gold! :P

Also I'm garbage :)
