Wow. This is awesome! I can't wait until rogues aren't pushovers when they're out of CDs.Back in TBC, rogues were pretty capable of standing face-to-face with warriors or ret paladins for more than three seconds without getting completely destroyed with ShS, but I noticed with Wrath that, if we're out of CDs, we simply can't do anything to stop from getting totally destroyed by heavy plate-wearing, damage-dealing foes.I can't wait. Wrath rogue PvP has always kind of been a hit and miss for me and alot of other rogues too.

What happened is, they nerfed dodge. The dodge coefficient from agility for rogues was just too high in BC, to the point where rogues who were very specifically geared could get, iirc, 102% avoidance WITHOUT ghostly strike or evasion, and were tanking raid bosses. http://www.wowwiki.com/Rogues_as_tanks

I think in wrath rogues were kind of supposed to have a hard time with warriors and ret pallies, because rogues are kind of the scissors to low armor classes paper, and somebody has to be the rock to rogues scissors in that model.I'm hoping Cata moves away from that approach and see good signs.

Yes, rogues are capable of taking fairly decent damage in cata, for the first time in a while they make decent flag runners whereas today it's something nearly unthinkable
