Here are my concerns around the rogue:http://elitistjerks.com/f78/t110016-cat ... 1_30_10_a/TLDR: Assassination and Combat spec are withn 3% DPS of each other. Assuming you go combat spec, there are two rotations. One rotation has 5 abilities, the other uses only 3 - the damage difference between these two rotations is only 2%. Lets leave Sub out of the argument; an incredibly complicated cycle for 5-10% less damage.Quote:Q: So the difference between doing the 5-button RvS/SS/SnD/Rupture/Evis cycle and the 3-button SS/SnD/Evis cycle is less than 2%?A: That's about the size of it, yes.Bottom line - you can get close to max dps with a rogue by using only 3 buttons. /yawn One of the things that become quite evident since patch 4.01 is how fixed rotations for most classes are a thing of the past. Many abilities are now activated in one way or another (giving you instant casts, mana free or rune free spells, etc). For me, this makes gameplay so much more fun. I think that Blizz forgot about rogues for Cata.

Yes, but isn't that what you want, for all specs to do comparable damage? I think that's a great thing because it gives you a true choice of which spec to play based on preferred playstyle.

The point I was trying to make is not that the damage output is more or less the same across specs. The issue that I have is that the rogue rotations have not changed since we were level 60. SS, SnD, Evis. Did it at level 60, still doing it at level 85.
