Anticipation

Rogue
Am I the only one that loves Anticipation?

Screw Ninja stars...gogo flexibility of back to back 5 point finishers!
Pretty much everyone takes it for PvE. If our time on the target were better I would take it for PvP but since its not I pick Shuriken Toss.

Truthfully its kind of ridiculous we have to talent Anticipation when rets get a version baseline but thats another argument i guess.
Used to love anticipation now playing without st is just a dead end street
I started with AP also but I soon realized a damaging ability that applys poisons (gap closer) and generates combo points is way to much to pass up, Plus it feels like I have deadly throw again...
:c
i really don't like anticipation. it feels clunky, at least imo.

5.2 is going to suck. I'm going to miss it proc'ing Crippling so much! :(
But, I guess people will consider the alternatives now for PVP. Unless that ranged auto-attacks is extremely powerful.

it is extremely powerful.

i've been playing on the PTR extensively , and ranged auto attacks + ST damage + lethal poison procs are very strong.

imo they are situational. Blizz gave us free talent changes in arena for this purpose i believe.

i'll still run toss the majority of the time most likely, but MFD will certainly have its uses as it is a very nice talent.
Gunning down a low health mage while rooted by throwing little red pebbles at his back is too good a feeling in pvp :).

Welp, thanks to somebody *Cough*

*Cough*, shuriken now no longer applies non lethal, which now makes it rather lackluster. It was used as a gap closer, now it's just purely ranged dps.

NOT POINTING ANY FINGERS

Please do not feed Viss' ego. He/she loves being given credit for this, even though it had absolutely nothing to do with his/her post. Blizzard doesn't listen to ONE random Rogue and decide to make a change based off that opinion.

Hopefully, with the changes in 5.2, the change to ST will be balanced in the long run. We'll never really know until the patch goes live and everyone can get their hands on it.
I'm still leveling, but, I can't wait for Anticipation.

Scuse the pun.

(Please don't be one of those idiots who has a public meltdown everytime someone refers to a pun, lol).
Anticipation's nice, live Toss is great, PTR Toss might make something intersting with Sub + Subterfuge + Deadly Throw ... but what I'm really looking forward to is Mut MfD. Kidney Shot into Envenom without 20s ramp-up? Yes please! The extra energy will be nice too.

15 page discussion on rogues being too overpowered, there's a good chance it caught somebodies eye and somebody on the Dev team thought "HMMM MAYBE THEY'RE RIGHT, BUT LET'S NERF IT - THE BLIZZARD WAY!"


The key phrase there is "THE BLIZZARD WAY!" I think most Rogues in that thread would have preferred the Live version of Toss vice the PTR +auto-attacks -utility version.
