This hotfix has been in there since yesterday. I was doing around 5k training dummy dps on my rogue and now I'm down to about 4.5-4.6k. Pretty disappointing.Other classes can be OP for weeks and months, but when a rogue is OP for 2 days there's such a tidal wave of QQ that the devs swing the nerfbat immediately.

this is so true, that is literally the first thing i said when i first hear this news last night... Any other class can be OP for months before Blizzard drags themselves around to fixing it... but God help us al if the rogue does .03k DPS to much!!!! Sirens must go off in the Blizz Headquarters....ARRROOOGA! NERF NOW!! NERF NOW!!!

Is this using a standardized template for complaints about nerfs?"I was doing around (insert number here) (choose one: dps/hps/tps) on my (insert your class) and now I'm down to about (insert lower number here). Pretty disappointing.(Insert class or classes you don't like) can be OP for (insert often hyperbolic time frame), but when a (insert your class) is OP for (insert amount of time your class was OP) there's such a tidal wave of QQ that the devs swing the nerfbat immediately."I remember reading similar posts to that one from Death Knights, Warlocks, Paladins, Warriors, and Mages. Maybe even some from Druids, Hunters, Priests, and Shaman.

Not complaining, but the same happened to me.No buffs, just using poisons and keeping my new rotation up [no Rupture] the day of the patch, just a tad over 5k DPS.Last night? Just over 4.7k.Between the poison buff to Mut spec and going with a Rupture-less rotation, I saw a large jump in numbers; roughly 1k-1.5k MORE damage, unbuffed, on a dummy. Overall, I'm pretty happy, even after the HFB "fix". 5% is quite a loss, but we've also gained a bit.

Yes because rogues have been SO underpowered that they actually drop to 2nd or MAYBE 3rd!!!!!one111one! /end sarcasmMove along people just another clueless rogue here who blaimes his ability to do good dps at blizzard, rather than learning to play.

@ ParaI was #1 on the meters before this change and I'll be #1 after, and I don't need to be OP to artificially prop up my DPS. I know more about my class then you'll ever know about yours. Just because I QQed a little about Blizzard granting us a buff only to revert it 2 days later does not make me a bad.You can suck it.

Don't act all surprised about this, fellow muties. We all suspected when the reports about the damage increase on the ptr came back that something was going to be nerfed. And, as many of us suspected, the simplest way to do it was with HfB. I happen to think 5% is a pretty big hit, but it is what it is. And keep in mind it's 18% to 13% (not 15% to 10%) since we all have the HfB glyph (which I assume is still at +3%, yes?). By the way, talent tooltip still shows 15% as of Wed afternoon... you'd think that the text would be the easiest part to fix.
