Not being a rogue, nor having enjoyed my rogue alt much, I'm obliged to focus on the bit about class-specific quests. I think Blizzard could broaden their perspective a little on that point by looking at games like Diablo (which I'm sure they have never heard of before); having class-specific quests would do much to increase the "replayability" (AKA Diabloness) of WoW, as you wouldn't have to level alts by grinding through the same old quests all over again.
I don't think vanish has ever worked properly, and probably never -will- work properly. I think vanish will always be the in-game joke of developers to rogues. Such fond memories. :DBut, you know, having not played my rogue as a main-character since original (eek, poor thing is sitting in Dalaran being my cook at level 73), I am curious to find out other rogue's reactions to some of the info posted. Specifically that combat-daggers comment. (Really? Is it THAT popular currently?) As for myself, I'm dumbfounded. If you are talking STRICTLY combat spec- bear with me guys on this, I'm aware of other builds outdoing combat DPS- swords have always been a more-viable combat spec.Or so I thought. I'm going off of what antiquated knowledge I have... I suppose I should look up some Wrath theorycrafting on this. Hmm....Swords4lyf.
Are rogues satisfied with the vanish-bug answer?I dont play one so Im curious.
The answer to the Vanish bug is really ridiculous.
I vote for adding axes to be usable with Mutilate, would be fun.and the vanish bug really needs a fix, it gets me killed alot :(
I thought this Q/A was bad, and makes me sad as I am leveling my rogue (67 atm).They say vanish "might" have a problem, but fixing it would make rogues overpowered. Like having a spell working correctly is overpowered? I call shenanigans!
A: It’s meant as a tool that’s part of a toolkit, not an I-win button. It’s sufficient, and extending it to 100% would make rogues largely immune to interesting PvE effects they shouldn’t be (e.g. Mimiron’s Shock Blast).ok wth is this...as a rogue that pvps alot i have to fight pally's that bubble and endlessly heal them selves but cloak of shadows is too powerful?....bsalso combat/dagger spec at end game is a joke. it might be alright to lvl up with but if you want to be on the top of dps recounts its swords all the way or mut/dagger. i love playing my rogue, by far my fav toon but it can be damn frustrating sometimes. Damn you pally's and druids.
Basics... Rogues are for PVP and Vanish should not always work or YOU will never die, unless you want to. I for one want more DPS on raids. PVP is no longer fun if ur not a TWINK. Well get eaten alive by HUNTERS and PALLY how sad :(
Just to be claer, no one plays sub anymore right?
here they make us wait till nearly the end (i think the priest was actually last to be posted) and then the Q & A isn't all that great.Vanish - it comes down to timing, hard to make it work in both PvE & PvP without it becoming OP'd in one or the other. I like the 1 second (or longer purhaps) before it can be broken, i am thinking maybe 3 sec tops to get out of the blast zone. Can't say i envy the programming on that.combat daggers - it isn't the biggest dps spec for us, but when you are @ 80 and have epic daggers Mutilate rotation is quicker to learn and keep up for PvE and between Hemo and Mut/sub for the PvP guru's combat daggers just isn't a big single target killer.unless my spreadsheet is old (very well could be) things still seem to go swords, daggers, mace's, fists. I imaging 1h axes will be up there with sword, but I don't know what the knew axes will be. only one that current gives AGI (rare at least) is The Key from H VH. Otherwise the most accessable one from Sons of Hodir will be the one to get. (unless you want the PvP ones). Otherwise Naxx will be back on farm for the few that drop from there. And I don't care what the tank says about me rolling on it but Last Laugh is the coolest looking axe and I want 2!something I would like to recommend is comparing weapons you have and want to get to see which works best. I was using Angry Dread (1H mace in MH) and Webbed Death (dagger in OH), I didn't like it as it looked silly and I caught a ton of flack because of it. However it was all i was able to win in runs and I was in top 3 dps for Naxx runs. So you never know how things will work until you try and keep an open mind.
