The last part makes me so sad... It's 100% true nonetheless.I've always played a ranged class and have always thought melee suffered from lack of boss uptime in many encounters and this is particularly true in the current tier. That wasn't a problem in Wrath, specially in 3.3, since rogues were indeed topping the charts despite that, but these are grim times for melee DPS specs overall.Our current raid team has only 1 melee which is a rogue (very much needed in Valiona heroic btw) and a replace DK and the raid leader said it outright that noone in the guild should roll any melee now, it's a 10-man guild and melee aren't needed, they are a liability, there are almost no fights in which you need melee. Harsh words, but kind of true... I feel bad for you guys and hope that changes in the next patch.

People play melee because they like it, not because they aren't smart. It's not their fault if the game is not well designed and favors ranged, Blizzard is to blame, not the players.I've read many times how some people just hate playing a ranged class/spec, for various reasons. That doesn't make them unintelligent.

@Stella...Every damn week you comment on Encrypted Text. Every damn week you spout off with the same crap that rogues are a liability, that melee sucks. Every damn week you ask why anyone would roll melee when ranged is better.At first, it was kind of funny, now it is just annoying. Encrypted Text is a column for rogues. If you have nothing valuable to contribute, then don't comment. The fact that you are anonymous does not give you an excuse to be such a complete and total asshole. STFU and get your ass out of our column.

Really @Stella!!??The best group I have ever been in was a PUG using the dungeon finder. There was a tank a healer and three Rogues. We cleaned out Dire Maul and had a great time. In most heroic dungeons, the group makeup doesn't matter too much. If the Rogues are doing their job and not pulling aggro, using Tricks of the Trade and Feint and staying out of the fire, it doesn't make life any harder for the healer, and my DPS will still beat your DPS by several thousand!!
