"I would, however, like some role to play in a raid besides "just do the most DPS and nobody will care otherwise"."okay.. let me get this straight. Rogues said that they should be the top dps because they can only do DPS, and Warriors should be at the bottom because they can tank and dps. but now you want to do more than just dps? i'm going to enjoy this.if you wanted to do more than "just dps" you should have rolled a hybrid class.

Slim, Thank you for stopping this nonsense in its tracks.Blizzard has done a good job of providing us Rogues with raid utility withoutgoing overboard (we can haz Bloodlust-lolz!?!)If your complaint is you are not useful for anything in a PVE setting other than toppingthe meter, my response is, please for the love of the few rogues remaining, learn to play your class.The author has outlined several ways to be useful beyond just dps in his excellentUlduar Rogue Guides on this site, and I have a couple of specific examples:ToT is extremely useful on many fights, particularly when the tank is moving alot, inorder to establish a strong aggro table. (Hodir, Ignis, Razorscale part 2, etc...)Put a couple of points in Throwing Specialization and I promise you will feel useful.Our guild just gathers all the adds and aoe's them in a single location for Razorscale, andwith throwing spec I am mitigating raid damage and making this strat possible.Last week, I did 101 interrupts on one RS attempt alone, while also topping the damage meter...(hooray for OP FoK glyph!)Also, try being really pro during Auriaya, and Killing Spree'ing the fear so you can kick Sentinel Blast and save the raid, or stunlock tanking Brundir if the OT dies on Council.Not to mention how important you can be in Vezax and Yogg.Please be advised, if you are complaining about a lack of utility, you are indicting yourskill level, not your class.Again, as the poster said, we are in good place, especially when compared to the dark days of Naxx.Now buff us! :)
