Shuriken Toss - The Rogue's Gag Order?

The title really says it all. Anyone else under the impression that maybe we're getting a little too much love with this ability? Between the control hard-baked into our class, it would seem that the 'what's good for the goose is good for the gander' relating to the abilities mentioned above should be given a hard look at.

This is it, of course, combined with Deadly Throw to make for a combination (3 combo points for silence) that requires a scant few seconds to set up with no cooldown.

Wouldn't want rogues to end up being this expansion's warriors, would we?

Nah, what I WOULD like is for PVP to stop being the reason I cannot have nice things.

I don't PvP, so are rogues dominating all aspects of PvP now due to ST? Just curious if there is a real balance issue or just the usual whining.

You can argue until your blue in the face if it makes you feel better, but you know neither of those talents is most popular for any pve rogue spec.

A nerf to either would have very limited impact on pve and people are just complaining because getting nerfed isn't fun, even if it hardly affects you at all.

Real Balance, I would like to say. It come back to the 'it doesn't take skill to have an ability that allows you to silence someone at range' with ease on no real cooldown. The same issue people had with Heroic Throw being able to silence, thanks to gag order.

I change my talents on a fight by fight basis, based on what is best.

There are several fights and other instances where I do use the talent, nurfing it would impact that greatly.

So, basic logic from you is "People are not using it so a nurf is no big deal"

I'll let you think about the flaws in that. Go on. I'll wait.

Blanket silence on heroic throw was never a problem.

Shuriken toss is silly because your a melee.

If you are unable to stay on target in this state of the game, you are playing poorly and should see poor results. Deadly throw interrupt is silliness just cuz there are too many ways to stop casting already. you need less. not more.

Shruiken toss is too cheap of a way to generate CP's to even have, let alone use, deadly throw.

Put em in the same tier.

yea because the OP is talking about pve...

The first clue the OP was talking about pvp:

the control hard-baked into our class


and the second

This is it, of course, combined with Deadly Throw to make for a combination (3 combo points for silence) that requires a scant few seconds to set up with no cooldown.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the original month-old post that you just necroed.

Did you just get the desire to post something about Gag Order, search "Gag Order" in the search bar, and just comment in the first one you saw?
