I have both a Rogue and a Feral druid at 80. They are similar but NOT the same, they shouldn't be. There are many talents Rogues have, they have 3 different trees that offer PvP viability and 2 that perform well in PvE. Do I think being stunlocked till dead is fun, NO. I have a Shaman, a Paladin as well at lvl 80 and a Lock on the way so yes I do know how much it sucks. But from this article it is apparent that the writer does NOT play their class well in PvP. I Arena with my Rogue so to hear how little a Feral has to interrupt with abilities is rubbish. Shadowstep......Feral Charge, except in order to get Shadowstep you have to talent quite a ways down into the Subtlety tree, Feral Charge is something all Ferals can have. Yes Rogues have Kick and Blind that require NO combo point, Gouge is a combo point free ability but it also require we be in front of our target....not the most desirable place to be. Maim is on par with Kidney Shot and Pounce is reflected with Cheap Shot (both openers that stun and add combo points) There are days I do think "Wow, killing people is just too easy" but that hardly justifies Feral tears. I like my Druid as Feral, I find the other two specs very boring and cubersom it is the only spec that made me want to level her. Also something else....ALL the rogues stuns can be trinketed out of, Hand of Freedom/removed, Cyclone is a CC that is only removable by trinket, and its instant when you get it with combo points and a finisher. Hmmm, yea it's just as bad to be whirling in air watching your partner be wailed on as it is to be laying dead watching your partner be wailed on. I think to call out "Nerf!" to either class is only asking for your own to be dealt the same blow by the dreaded nerf bat. So please either learn to play your class in PvP or keep crying because with two classes so similar when one burns so shall the other.

"ALL the rogues stuns can be trinketed out of"Problem with that comment is that it's catch-all in nature. The reality is you will trinket out of *ONE* stun and that trinket goes on cooldown while the rogue immediately slaps another stun on you. Let's not forget the poisons to come with all that happy stabbing as well. It's not enough to trinket out of a rogue stun and then woohoo! trouble free.

I'll only stun you again if you're stupid and you trinket out of my first stun instead of the second. Rogues have two stuns not a bajillion. It's not like there's seven stuns on my bar I say "oh he trinketed out of my third stun...I think I'll apply my seventh."But seriously...if you play feral and you can't survive a stunlock then you're doing something wrong. Between Barkskin and Primal Tenacity I'm happy if I can get a feral to 70% before he turns around and mauls me.
