Pistol shot?Well I can't wait to pair myself with a leather hat and call myself "Good Hunter".
if outlaw rogues get to use pistols ... then why not give them more pistol skills and change the artifact for the specc: sword + pistol combination.
Overall the specs seem pretty cool, very true to the fantasy of the rogue. I do feel like the Outlaw can be a very fun spec to play in both PvP and PvE, however if they remove Killing Spree I'll flip a table. With that said, Subtlety seems like the Shadow Dancer that every rogue RPer want's to be, the new passive Shadow Dance seems like a pretty cool idea, I always found it obnoxious to tab to be able to use it. If they do remove Killing Spree from the Outlaw I hope they'll give it to Subtlety because the mechanic seems like a shadowy ability, which would fit the fantasy of the Subtlety rogue very well.
Really liking Outlaw, it looks unique and fun.
Subtlety seems to be strong AF
Where's the rum gone!
Fantastic choice to replace Combat with Outlaw. Feels more bandit like.
I'm in love with sub rogue! Outlaw feels mehh.
Killing Spree is slated to be a talent in a row with other AoE talents. And with the removal of the Major Glyph slots, it will always port you back to your starting position.
Outlaw Rogues, that sounds SO good, can't wait to try it ! hope it really turn into something different, switching between pistol shots and sword slashin' with bleedings and shoots in the knee to slow their targets, a fighter dirty to the core !
so outlaw is swashbuckler kind of style?
Omg Sub is awesome!111
Outlaw gets a gun? Sounds good to me.When I first made my Rogue, I rolled Sub. Many levels later, I had discovered that not only was trying to fight toe-to-toe with many mobs solo a fool's errand, to do so in any sensible way I had to toy with CDs and cheese Vanish repeatedly. Naturally, I switched to Combat and I've been very happy ever since.That said, I much prefer the changes Blizz is making to Sub to make it less min/max and more fun. Perhaps I'll give it another go.
The first time in ages that I actually wanted to play Subtlety. Disappointed that Assassination is still pretty bland, but wow does Outlaw look amazing. I'm so glad they embraced the "swords Rogue" fantasy that seemingly everyone plays Combat for. Pistol Shot sounded strange at first, but it actually looks really cool. Another home run in my opinion.
Does this mean ... we might have 1H gun in Legion?
These changes gave me a chubby.
I think Outlaw has an ability that uses a gun, not that they actually get a gun to use as a weapon in and of itself. I could be wrong on that, but adding in a whole new set of weapons (1h guns) for 1 spec in the entire game would be a bit much. Still sounds fun though. Hopefully we'll see more clearly defined lines between the specs with all the talent choices that are coming.
"Combat" never really felt like a specialization that belonged to rogues, so I am happy to see this change.
Mostly seems to be pretty good stuff for rogues, but one thing I really don't like is Pistol Shot. Mechanically, it looks pretty sound, but thematically? I like my rogues to be rather... silent, and a pistol is very much not. If I wanted a gun, I'd roll a hunter. Being a long-time combat rogue, I don't like it. Hopefully there is a glyph or talent that changes it into Shuriken Toss or something. For rogues, I like to think the way to go would be blades, no guns. If ranged, thrown or a bow, maybe a crossbow might be acceptable, but not guns.
