Anyone else feel flameglow is bad design?

Rogue
New mage talent that will reduce damage by up to 30% passively. Will work best against fast hitting lower dmg dealing classes... like us, dot classes.

In a game where switching talents is basically free and easy talents like this have no place in the game. Basically que for arena: if you see heavy 2h dmg dealers choose ice barrier, if you see dot classes or rogues choose Flameglow.

Imagine if rogues had a talent where: Reduce physical damage by 30% but receive 20% more dmg from magical.

Against any heavy melee team we'd just switch to our "i win" talent and switch back against any caster friendly teams.

If Blizzard wants to keep switching talents such an easy cost free thing to do they need to nip the design of talents that protect you more heavily against certain types of dmg.
I would just say they didn't think these new talents out as well as they thought they might of. Rogues need a complete overhaul next expansion, but I doubt we'll see ANYTHING NEW.
I didnt know rogues hit weak.

I was under the impression they had 80k eviscerates and 40k shrunken tosses.

Silly me.
yes almost all our dmg is in the sum of huge amounts. it's why we need very little uptime on a target. /rolls eyes
I didn't know rogues hit weak either I mean 80k evis and 40k tosses when it crits 1/5 times is pretty good.....I mean just look at 300k execute or 75k shock wave or /lol mortal strike crits for 90k......I mean 80k evis must be better then that RIGHT? RIGHT?

Play subtlety and it will matter a lot less. Frankly, over the course of an match Ice Barrier is still probably going to come out to more absorbed damage than Flameglow will and it's more likely to mitigate the really important damage as well.

You have a surprising number of level 1 toons... How often do you have to make a toon on another server to rage at someone?

Is that the main? Lol PVE garbage.

And this is going to be the bane of a Rogue's existence just because we hit more often than we do harder. Those 80k eviscerates are going to turn into 56k eviscerates, our 10k melee swings are going to turn into 7k, our DP crits are going to turn into 15k, and it's just going to complete waste our uptime on them.

Whoa man.

I'm sure your 1500 rating is relevant to the state of rogues.

Better listen to you.

Not really.

I could play 0 arena and still have 1500.

Yeah because 2v2 with an alt that hit 90 2 weeks prior at the end of a season means something.

God you 1500 baddies are so desperate.

Seems to be a pretty common excuse when someone can't even break 1550 achievement..

Yeah guy i'm in a rush to cap points despite the fact 5.2 will be out before i can even get enough for a T2 weapon.

You should stick to wintrading/getting carried.

You're acting like you even need gear to break 1550... and that must be why you are bad.
