Level 90 abilities (thread 9 million?)

Rogue
So I just get to 90 and read my new "abilities" for the first time. Go figure. What... The... F

Shuriken Toss. Because I really used Deadly Throw or Throw very much. Ever.

Versatility. I doubt I would mind if Redirect had a 3 minute cooldown like every one of my abilities.

Anticipation. Because I really want to be NOT SPENDING my combo points?!

All three of these abilities appear to have been designed by someone who does not play a rogue, and I am... really concerned. How is it possible that I get to 90 I get nothing of value? How? Ugh.... this really took the wind out of my motivation to play.
Ok, Anticipation might be cool now that I think about it. I'll give it a fair shake.
We hit over 5 cps rather often, they'd be going to waste if we didn't have anticipation - especially with Shadow Blades.

This. Anticipation eliminates wasted combo points. Assassination in particular benefits from this enormously, as we don't have to do 4+ finishers anymore. Land on 4? Where you would have been forced to finish before, now you can Mut again for that 5 and finish, and that extra point that would have been wasted is now there and ready for use next round.

Anticipation is amazing. Needs to be baseline imo.

For PvE? I know I stack combo points very fast in PvE (especially with Shadow Blades + AR stacked in Combat spec), but this isn't really an issue for me in PvP because I'm constantly using them to lock down the target with stuns or get SnD up ..because that's were Energetic Recovery is now.. for some reason.. I guess it's sorta-kinda nice to be able to Evis. a target twice in a row if you have 5 CP + 5 stored... but meh.

Basically.

Anticipation is great in PvE.

In PvP Shuriken is the one that will likely be taken most often...since aticipation is too clunky to use outside of CD like AR+Sblades, and versatility is so niche.
I agree, plus while the lvl. 90 talents are nice abilities, when you compare it to some of the things other classes are getting at 90... yeah.. it doesn't compare well. Shuriken has been nice for applying poisons at range though.
deadly throw should be part of all rogues, not make us choose. It slows a range, puts the cripple poisons slow effect on 'em and slows them w/ deadly throw for 6sec or so...Its our equivalent to fear like priest where fears stack. <3 it as sub in cat and wotlk. Now its trash.... might as well delete it now.

Versatility is trash.

Only good for full burst (least as sub) is anticipation....

Versatility works good for mut though...cant waste those cps when your regenerate 1 energy every 2 days
