Were people really using lower level helms for the stealth detection?

Why not? Bliz made a fairly big deal about the fact that the itemization in WotLK shouldn't give you one clear item better than all the rest. They said repeatedly that they wanted people to have to choose their situational items based on more than one or two stats.Remembering that, this decision makes zero sense. The only thing that was happening here was that players were buying into Bliz's philosophy and choosing lesser items for the buff instead of just becoming ingame avatars of the player's spreadsheet.

If you head over to arenajunkies and look at all of the top rogues they were all engineers using the goggles. This is really only a nerf to rogues by rogues for rogues.

Quickshiv,This is still something you should be concerned about. In WSG, I often guard the flag in stealth. Many times, I would catch stealth classes trying to grab the flag. This nerf will definitely hinder defenses in any BG.It's sort of like how many Submarine captains would pit their ships against other Subs. Rogues often seek each other out.Now... probably not so much. I'm more likely to go after other classes now that I know they probably can't see me at all.
