"I believe that as some of the truly overpowered spells are toned down..."Unfortunately, Rogue DPS is considered pretty overpowered in the Arenas at the moment, so if some of those spells are toned down you're most likely looking at your own abilities being toned down.Mutilate is currently such a powerful spec that a Rogue paired with nigh on anything is a good comp, since a Mut Rogue in decent gear is a "heal-beater." Mut Rogue/Disc Priest is one of the hardest comps to touch at the moment, since the opposing healer has to continuously spam heals on an actively evading teammate just to keep him alive at all, which opens him up for Mana Burns and a near-immediate OOM.Rogues have their weaknesses, fortunately, so I don't think huge nerfs are in order, but some of that damage has to be brought under control.

Yup, I know this info wasn't available when you wrote your original post, but yes, mut rogues are getting nerfed. Mut now does 20% extra damage to poisoned targets down from 50%, which is a much needed change.I may be a rogue, but even I don't enjoy getting stunlocked by a shit geared rogue and dieing in 2 mutilates when I have close to 700 resil.
