@ the question about roguesYeah, its pretty lame to have that happen, just like its really lame to have to kill a paladin 3 times (initial health, bubble+heal, LOH) before he actually stays dead. For me (I used to play a priest in S2-3) I would just wait for the kidney shot and trinket out of that and then fear and pray to god that I bought enough time for my partner to save me. If it was 1v1, then I would start dotting and tossing some quick shadow spells on him and then try to snipe a heal in there to heal myself. The trick was to not get caught doing a big holy spell b/c they would do something that would lock you out of that school of magic for like 10 sec.Now that I tool around on my warrior (prot) mostly, I just let them do their worst and then turn around and shield block and let them kill themselves on the damage shield. Save your fear/shockwave for when he dismantles you (which needs a firm nerf imo - no other class has to deal with ALL their damage abilities and all but 1 defensive abilities getting turned off by a single ability - dismantle takes away both the sword and the shield, and if there is no chain or titanium plating, your screwed). Once they blow dismantle, I know I can usually win unless they are really good at running away.As Alex said though, if you are in the best gear you can get, rogues turn into a minor annoyance at best b/c they cant burst anymore.

ROFL AT WARRIOR QQ.Wait a minute. Warriors the only one having to deal with all of their abilities being taken away? Take a minute to think about all the defensie abilities you have in the first place. Now think about how few the other classes have, such as the hunter. We've got two. Deterrence, and Disengage. Maybe Scattered Shots if you're pure PvP Survival. Deterrence has has a 20 second CD that we can only use when unstunned. Rogue stuns, I trinket, disengage, rogue re-stealths, disarms me, I can't cast scattered shots or deterrence, rogue restuns me and kills me. This fight repeats with every rogue i fight. Unless it's an usually shitty rogue.You were saying?
