I love PVE'ing as a Mutilate Rogue. Knowing my priorities and tracking my poisons and bleeds on a target, and continually taking stock of the injuries I've inflicted to know exactly when and how to hit them next; I feel like a methodical assassin crafting a recipe for precise, poison-induced death tailored to that specific target.There's a certain independence and otherness to being "the rogue." I love that I'm often expected to watch my own back; keeping the rogue up is rarely high on anyone's list of priorities. When everyone knows you have that instant Vanish at your disposal (although I prefer to save it for an extra opener midway through a fight), you're often expected to survive situations without help. I love living up to that challenge. I love Vanish and Stealth, sure, but it's often even more satisfying to use your bag of tricks wisely and punctually without having to rely on the comforting embrace of the shadows to save your skin.As fun as it is to rack up damage on a tank-and-spank style fight, I love having to keep abreast of a moving target and avoid spells as the tank moves around. I love stealthing alongside the tank right up to a boss or group of mobs, or better yet, getting there first to scope out the area and get into position behind the unsuspecting victim.I love having the speed, interrupts and stuns to help my companions out of a tight spot, especially healers; using a well-timed Sprint, Kick, Disarm or Kidney Shot to let a healer go back to doing their job is very satisfying. I love those occasions when Cloak of Shadows means one less dispell or heal for the casters to keep track of. I also love the animations, especially on my Darkspear rogue; the whirling finishers are great, and sprinting over to Queen Azshara and interrupting her mind-control with a spinning kick to her smug face makes me smile every time.
