It's simple really, in PvE rogues do fine in terms of damage, I personally use the combat spec for dungeons and raids and find myself hitting top DPS if I time my abilities rite. In PvP i find my openers to be weak not doing as much damage as they used to the stuns are fine its just the damage.

I found that if you hunt for gear with common stats it helps. Spreading out Mastery, Haste, Expertise and Critical doesn't really help - all the bonuses are too low to happen often enough. If you focus on Haste, you regenerate energy like crazy; if you focus on Critical, you hit harder more often. etc... Reforge some of your gear and see what happens.

Sounds to me like you want to believe something is wrong to justify any performance issues you are currently seeing.


No. I was assuming that I was playing the class wrong. So, I wanted to see what everyone said so that I could see if I really was playing the class wrong or if rogues just weren't as good this expansion. I found that it was a little of both, BUT I'm sure it was mostly that I wasn't doing it right (apparently all the Combat guides on the internet at the time were wrong, because I followed that rotation).

Either way, I decided the class just didn't/doesn't fit my play style and I wanted something that had big bursts of damage. So, I rolled a frost DK, love it, and am doing great DPS.

(Side note: After posting this thread, I didn't look at it again until today because I'd basically already made up my mind that I didn't want to play my rogue anymore, since I wasn't fit for it--more reasoning why I didn't post this to make an excuse for being bad. lol.)

idk guys ive nvr had any probs with this class my 90 rogue im usually ranked in the top 2 in pve and I don't see myself energy starved. u gotta plan ur attacks ahead of time and think not just run into a mob and mash ur bottons. it all comes down to learning ur spec and learning what spec ur good at not picking the spec u see/hear is good learn on ur own pick a spec u think is fun to play.

Not resurrecting century old threads is better.
