I kind of had the opposite experience. My dwarf rogue was my first character to 70 (back in BC), and assumed that fighting one mob at a time was the norm. Then I leveled a DK and pally a realized how much easier leveling was with them (pulling 3-10 mobs at a time), although less fun. Stealthing to the end of a cave to assassinate a quest mob will always be more fulfilling than berserking through the mobs in between in my eyes.Also personally I prefer the energy system to anything else. It allows you to be more tactical with your moves rather than having to spam a button on every GCD.

I remember the joy of stealthing past so much, it was like "I'm a ninja!".Of course, ninja's get no monster xp...

I actually really enjoy rampaging through the mobs to get to my target, leaving them just piles of sparkly body parts. This is probably why I play Fury warrior rather than rogue.

I know what you mean. I had tried rogues a few times and it never clicked until I was bored enough to roll a female orc rogue during some extended downtime on my main server. This was back in the days when some of the mobs in the level 1-6 area were still red, and I got the quest to kill the burning blade big bad at the back of the neverending cave in the Valley of Trials.I somehow managed to stealth all the way to the guy without aggroing any demons along the way, killed him, and then snuck out without detection. Made me rather happy to imagine the consternation when the demons realized, after some time had passed, that their boss was no longer among the living. I love the class and still play her from time to time but only in solo quests. For whatever reason, rogues and groups never clicked for me. More than even a prot paladin or a hunter, rogues seem well designed for working on their own. Hard to imagine them following orders and just being another face in the crowd.
