"Scott Cabot said...I really still don't see any reason to play my rogue, even with the damage buffs I am still QQ'ing as to our place in raids, PvP is pointless unless its a 1 v 1 battle and even then I have to pick them carefully.Guess it might be time to re-roll and give horde a try :s"The top dps in our guild is a rogue. 6k or more on patch consistently. Learn to play your class perhaps?

Haha fair call I should have seen that coming, rogues aren't horrible and I definitely am not fanstastic at PvP but I do run the best DPS output for my rogue as well as try and utilise the best gear (I'm definitely not min/maxing to the extreme). Just seems rogues with early naxx/prenaxx gear are definitely being out dpsed by dks and hunters in raids. I only top the damage meters if I'm in a pug but not a guild run.Anyway as I said I guess I should have expected criticism, will have to wait till 3.1 drops anyway to see how the class changes pan out I spose.Either way I still QQ, that might be the 4 AB losses I suffered today talking though.

Well, it depends on what is fun for you. I am sure you know the rogue is extremely good at PVP, but lately they've been overshadowed by rets and DKs. I really hate those guys, btw. If you feel that your side is terrible at PVP, you should look at the stats for your battlegroup. Not sure where they are, but one website does have stats as for which group wins/loses the most. There is definately some skewing, on both sides, depending on the BG. Also it strongly depends on time of day. For example, alliance always wins WG around 7pm at night every night, without fail. However, there are usually 2-3 fold more alliance than horde, it really makes a difference despite tenacity. WHereas, during the day, horde usually does a better job at WG (you could argue that the kids are at school and I certainly will not disagree).Anyway, don't let this stop you from re-rolling if you want. Above all, do what you want, not what the commentators or your guild wants.
