Say what you will about 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'; but part of me still feels a little like Cataclysm is Christmas for most of the classes and Rogues are Jewish. We still get a holiday, but our presents are more modest and there's no day after smoke bomb sale.

and cataclysm is like kwanza for deathknights. we know its coming, but not really sure what the F it is, and if what we are getting are actually presents.

I like how everyone is saying rogues got shafted...WTF. The ability to transfer CPs and use them from dead targets? That's a huge shift in the rogue gameplay that's been around since vanilla. And Smoke Bomb will instantly become iconic for the rogue class, both among rogues and others. I mean, who's really gonna notice Cobra Shot, Necrotic Strike or a Mind Spike or whatever that priest thing is called? And untargetable in the smoke? So cool.

Smoke Bomb is appropriately similar to the Dark Swarm ability, because all rogues are Zerg in our hearts.

@ KragraghWow, a raiding rogue sure has a load of combo points on dead targets or a pressing need to transfer the points. If you've a fight with adds, some long cooldown ability will do jack to help you. And mark my words, the cooldown wont be of the short variety, because it will be beaten with the nerf stick when the first Cata arena season hits.A ton of purely situational abilities isn't worth the excitement.I hope they make something good of Shiv. Weird that nothing was said here.
