Just for the record, I'm still monitoring this thread.
Note: Please don't be vulgar, hyperbolic, draw the discussion off-topic, violate the forum code of conduct, or otherwise disrupt this potentially very constructive thread. These things will make me sad. I do not want to be sad. None of us want to be sad. No sads.
Speaking of follow-up questions:
- What do you feel really works well for your Rogue in Mists?
I will do you one better (hopefully)
-The first tier talents (save for nightstalker) are actually really interesting. Subterfuge is very unique
-DOUBLE SWORDS! (Now if you would only put in agi swords... >.<)
-Assassination and Combat playable in PvP (at least MUCH more so than in cata)
-New flavor glyphs (like decoy)
-Poison mechanics and the new poisons (Though I HATE the fact that para and leeching poison lock each other out)
-Blind in stealth
-ShS to allies (though the CD means we cant do it that often)
-Level 90 talents are VERY boring (save for perhaps anticipation). While versatility and shuriken are NOT BAD per say....they are just very boring to pick and use.
-Prep....please let it die!
-Flat damage talents (Prey on the weak, and nightstalker)
-ShS having a 24sec CD and not breaking or suppressing roots
-No flashy spell effects or animations
-SHADOW WALK....why doesnt this have ANY audio or animation or spell effect...seriously.
-Combat and Sub spec rotations and skills being so similar
Overall the main issues I have with rogues in cata is not that they are weak....its that...they are just so boring to watch and to play. The reason I am leveling this guy to 90 first is because he was my first ever char...not necessarily because he is the most fun to play.
-Prep dieing and having 3 mobility talents on that tier
-Versatility and Shuriken Toss reworked to be a bit more fun to use.
-SHADOW WALK GETTING A VISUAL OR AUDIO EFFECT!
-New spell effects (particularly for Shadow Blades, Vendetta, Shadow Dance, AR, and Hemo/SS...I want to look cool to you know...)
-Prey on the weak and Nightstalker made to be more than just flat damage buffs
-Opener skills to matter for Mut and Combat specs....right now I dont know if I should even open with ambush over mut as assassination.
By the way thanks for chiming in here. Also if any other classes give you beef let us know, we will poison their tea and food for you (or stab them in the back) :P
