I'd like to make a comment about Rogue/Shaman.I currently run this comp, and I personally love it. I actually put 3 points into Setup and usually go at it with the melee DPS of the other team. Whenever I dodge their attack (22%-ish I think), I gain a combo point; this happens all the time, so I get to use all my finishers, like Expose Armor, Rupture, Eviscerate, and Slice and Dice. We win by running out the mana of the other healer. My shaman has a healing trinket off Malygos that is very good, and he is very skilled. In many ways, the team is carried by the shaman.If possible, we try to get the healer to blow his trinket. Against anything that isn't holy paladin, I will blind the healer when the guy I'm DPSing gets to about 50%. He will be forced to trinket, and then my Shaman will Hex him. Against Holy Paladin, we use blind early so he is forced to trinket, then he will be forced to bubble out of Hex.Rogues, start gemming for 8agi/resil + whatever you need for your meta gem. I rolled with about 450 resilience for while, while now I have 711. My partner says it is extremely noticeable how much more survivability I have. Don't be surprised if you get Executed or PoM/Pyro'd for 10k though. It happens, and it is completely out of your control and in the hands of Ghostcrawler.

I was wondering when resil would become "noticeable".I'm sitting at 650 resil and honestly I still get exploded in the BGs quite easily. I don't notice it at all yet, but maybe once I get over 700 it'll finally start saving me from the grizzly deaths I often experience.
