What did the Rogue say in World of Roguecraft?"I've never had an opponent stunned for more than 90% of a fight."I think that PvP balance *should* be considered in one-on-one matches. As much as battlegrounds and arenas are team-oriented... PvP often ends up being fought mano-a-mano. I cannot recount the number of times I've had to run a flag by myself. Or guard a flag or node alone. Whenever that happens, I'm easy prey for a Rogue.I've only recently gained enough Resilience gear to survive through a Rogue's stuns. Even so, I still have problems fighting them. They still win in *most* encounters. My whole strategy is to pray I survive the stun, then run away casting instant spells. Of course, this all fails when the Rogue sprints. My only true hope after a series of stuns is that a teammate arrives. If this happens to be World PvP, there's only a tiny chance of anyone coming to help.Rogues are all offense. And they are GOOD at it. They sacrifice a great deal of defense because they can stealth. A Rogue's survivability is tied to them making good choices in terms of timing and targets. Rogue's may be weak after the stuns wear-off, but considering they can kill or drop their opponent to 10-20% health... I'd say the playing field is MORE than tipped in the Rogue's favor. Perhaps this will all change in Cataclysm. So, I've got a "wait and see" attitude for now.In Cataclysm, I'd like to see any class be able to defeat any class equally. That probably isn't going to happen, but I can dream can't I?
