Have you ever stepped into an Arena Ross? I'm talking about 2100+, Killing someone in a few seconds doesn't work unless your ShadowDance with a frost/Arcane mage helping. Rogues are so weak (defensively), they are still the only class in the game that can get 100-0'ed EVERYTIME within a duration of a stun, I've been killed in Intercept stuns by warriors, L'n'L stuns by hunters, it is ridicules, the amount of times I've died with CloS or Evasion running I really can't count on my hand.On ArenaCast (podcast), the host suggested that rogues should get a version of Focused Will or Primal Tenacity, these are some of the best players in the world (think all of them are in the top 20 on TR, then there is also serenia when I'm sure most people know of), none of them play a rogue but they easily see the faults the rogue class has.It's always easy to stand by idly and go 'LOL ROGUE 100-0 SOMEONE IN STUNLOCK OLOLOLOL, NO BUFFS FOR YOU'But in reality that doesn't happen, not against any decently geared people, again unless your Shadow Dance, and using Shadow Dance in that stunlock, but Shadow Dance is the only ace that tree has, if you don't kill someone/pop an important cooldown (i.e bubble) in Shadow Dance then you lose.But on to the actual topic at hand, what is wrong with 100% clos? or evasion providing deflection? Against any good player CloS IS effectively 100%, no one casts through it but sometimes those random frost nova procs/ Mirror Image Polies etc get through and it's the most frustrating thing in the world. 25% deflection would probably be weaker than 25% miss, but I don't know, maybe you should saw "buffs" and "rogues" in the same article and the "CAN"T LET THIS HAPPEN OLOLOLOL" in your mind went off.
