Assassination still not nerfed?

Its already world of roguecraft right now.

I'm still holding onto, "If my class isn't broken, why am I losing to noobs? I used to beat everyone, now I can't beat anyone!? Did I get worse?"

To which Mute replied, "No, you were never any good."

can't wait for assassin nerfs tbh lol.
What I don't get is how assassination magically became overpowered after the nerfs to sub and outlaw. It was literally the least played spec out of the three before, so I'm sure that the pvp community is just toxic and garbage now.

Because Rdruids (op heals) and Rshams (link talent) could live it before, now they can't. Discs almost always have a rogue with them, so its equally broken if they fight a rogue. MW has turbo. Hpal can trinket, then bubble, then human racial, then bop, then trinket again.

It's called a meta shift.

So Blizzard is just going to keep nerfing what's meta until what point?

Given that RMP and turbo still haven't been nerfed, I guess they are happy now.

But they have, multiple times or did everyone already forget? Also I love how everyone wants to balance the game solely on 3s, yet WoW pvp is way more than just that.

Arms has been the most nerfed spec since bfa launched, no more plz
I died in a 4 second stun from an Assassin rogue today from full health with 1 form of hots on me.

My fury war partner who is fairly tanky went 100% to 20% in less than 3 seconds from an enhance.

Idk, maybe burst over all needs to be toned down from all classes or maybe they were just way more geared than me since I’m 355 il

I just gotta say, I’ve had around 50 matches today around 2000-2100 rating in 2s and about 90% or more had a rogue. It just feels like everyone’s rolling a rogue for easy rank and I’m so tired of seeing them.

I can just imagine how bad 3s are with RMD/RMP
I think they've taken so long to nerf assassin because it's where they want it in pve. I've heard raiders prefer outlaw and sub over assassin. Further nerfs might bottom out the spec in pve content. I don't think there are pvp devs anymore and those given the task of doing the next round of pvp balancing are being cautious w rogues after the extremely heavy handed sub nerfs that gutted the spec.

Lol a 20s 6 second stun isn't why you're dying.

25 second 30% damage modifier and 30 second 5 cp builder might be related though.

nerf assassins frequency of access to burst damage. imo.

Still?? LOL

Yeah, also the community is very toxic towards Rogues. Nerf Rogue has a high count on forum post since BFA Pre-Patch. They have been nerfing rouges every other week since then. I figure they don't want to alienate Rogues. But, at some point the Nerf Bat will hit again, however I think they will Buff Sub and maybe Outlaw. They were to drastic on their nerfs to Sub/Outlaw, now with Azerite fully unlocked and higher health pools, their damage seems too low.
