The final issue is the one that really bothers me, and why I went off to go try Rift. Rogues only have one roll in all three trees, dps. And we're not the best at that. We're inferior to both warrior dps specs, frost DK, and FERAL DRUID for other melees, and hunters, mages, shadow priests and locks shit on rogues too. We're middle of the pack, and only really ahead of the weaker dps specs of classes that could actually play a different role. Blizzard just doesn't seem to care anymore.And thus back to my original point, why I went over to Rift. I can still play a rogue, but now I can be a group healer as Bard, go Ranger when needed, or main tank instances/raids. (Yes, rogues can really main tank if geared right) But the best part of all that, the dps disparity in Rift is exceptionally small. No more seeing a rogue do 24k on H Chimearon, while your Aff locks are pulling 32k. But enough gushing, Blizzard keeps buffing the classes that already stomp on rogues, while entirely ignoring rogues. Well, except for the Frost DK nerf, but that's one of only 10 specs that beat the tar out of us.
