"I have a very specific priority system for choosing my Tricks of the Trade target: another rogue, a tank, someone I'm trying to gank by sending mobs to them while they're AFK, and nobody."Really? Nobody?. I tricks the tank at the start of the fight or for critical swaps/pick-ups, but otherwise it is on another DPS. Too cool to help your raid down a boss with a tight enrage timer? Your columns are full of stupid statements like this that prove you don't do exactly what you tell other rogues to do: maximize your dps (and the raid's dps), stay alive, and get the boss down.

"Really? Nobody?"This is where I hope everyone would've thought: "Wait, is this a joke? Giving out Tricks to nobody would be dumb for both the rogue and the raid. That was a joke."I enjoy giving the other classes a hard time, but I'm also not going to hurt my raid in order to do more damage. In fact, that was the entire point of this article.

At no point did you talk about tricks of the trade being a raid dps increase at the cost (sometimes) of personal dps. If you are writing an article telling people how to contribute to a raid, your target audience may not pick up on your little joke and take what you wrote as a true priority system. As a suggestion for another article, try to help some of the many guilds struggling on DW normal. Key them into using FoK on bloods to boost spellweave damage, cleaving off of blistering onto the wing tentacle (but not the other way around), etc. Topics like this are more helpful than another article telling people to use their buttons.

It was obviously a joke. Who here, besides robwash, thought that Nobody was a higher Tricks priority than a dps warrior or dk, or any of the other dps classes you'd find in a raid? And just so there is no further confusion, I'm going to go out on limb and say that the Ganking part was also meant as a joke. I somehow doubt Chase would choose to grief an afk player over giving tricks to a dps warrior or dk.

I thought Nobody was one of his raid members, just like Noone and Unknown in mine.......That was also a joke btw.

Nobody is the name of his offtank.
