They rework the entire class and we're still barely above Cataclysm levels.

Feels good to be a Warlock.

Still think that the class needs a rework from the ground up. But that is just me.

It's merely fallen victim to Blizzard's very dumb way of continually creating updates that produce FotM classes and imbalances that replace previous classes and imbalances. Along with that, and how the control-limiting way WoW's PvP "functions" (if you could call it even that) is why the game will never be balanced PvP wise.

I think the real reason for the decline in the rogue class representation has to do with venn diagrams. I think the overlap between "players of monks" and "players of rogues" is probably larger than any other class.

Plus, I don't think rogues are a very interesting archetype. They've been the red-headed step-child in the Fantasy genre for the as long as I can remember.

We take a rogue on our RBG team and it's been a game changer. While I know they are feeling the pain in the charts, honestly I'm not seeing it as total handicap in PvP. Because seeing rogues in arenas is a lot more rare, we have to remember that the previous season almost all of the 2200+ teams carried a rogue. I think they are feeling the lag in attention, but the adjustments were needed.

Whenever I play D&D, despite my love for rogues in a story... They've never fun for me to play.

Of all the classes I've tried to level, rogues are my least favorite to play.

Ironically, my mains are a paladin and a rogue. Least played and most played.

For what little I play these days, that is.

This is why I haven't done a thing on my rogue even though he's 90.

I don't even know what to main at this point, since I do plan on getting all my classes to 90 eventually.

Paladin all the way.

ALL THE WAY

Wait, are you saying you were a rogue/paladin multiclass, or are you saying that paladin is your class of choice?

My class of choice is cleric, but if I am playing a rogue/thief, I inevitably multi-class to Wizard.

I'll be honest, I deleted my rogue to make room for my monk

No no, I'm saying, in WoW, I play paladin and rogue as my two main characters. In D&D, it's paladin all the way.

I HAVE done a paladin/rogue class, though. From 3.5 Complete Adventurer, Shadowbane Inquisitor. Fun stuff.
