fascinating...a rogue complains about weapon swapping for 2 seconds on the forums, something not make-or-break for the class but a small change in dps, and receives it in the next build of the ptr.Just fascinating.

@Breaklance:You do realize that Antiarc wrote an addon that made weapon swapping "so easy a caveman could do it", right?It was smart enough to swap, swap back AND do it immediately after a white hit to minimize swing timer resets.They didn't expect it to be an issue... which is foolish... top rogues ALWAYS look for that extra 5, 10, 15 dps. The addon was adding almost 100dps in some cases.

What's the matter, Breaklance? Feel that your class, whatever it may be, is broken and deserves more attention than this change? ):Seriously, the weapon-swapping deal may not have been a HUGE DPS buff or whatever, but so what? It was a DPS buff, and it was something that Rogues shouldn't have to do anyway. It was an easy, and likely relatively quick, fix. Sorry your class didn't get buffed too.

/agree This, with the change in 3.2 to Master Poisoner for envenom not removing DP anymore, this is a pretty nice buff to us assassination rogues.

i read the rogue changes.. which one is the buff? i dont play a rogue and i was just wondering.

hmm when i went to look at the rogue changes to see what the buff was, i forgot about the top half of the article. i see the buff now :)

This is a huge buff. I tested this on the PTR and my DPS jumps by 1500!The longer the fight, the more beneficial this buff is. I use Instant Poison on my main hand, and before this buff, IP only counted for about 15% of my total DPS. But now IP is 28% of my total DPS, second only to normal melee swing!
