Aug 23rd 2011 10:05AM After playing Rift and coming back to WOW. We need two features very badly.
1. AOE AUTO LOOT!!!!!
2. One button on the vendor that sells all grey items.
man Blizz why couldn't you think of that first.
Feb 15th 2011 3:59PM To answer your question, rifts will scale depending on how many players are in a zone. If you have lots of people in a zone and you choose to ignore a RIFT you will have a massive invasion.
On the other hand if its 3am and there are 5 of you, you will notice for example they might be 6 mobs of non-elites.
Feb 15th 2011 3:44PM What I don't seem to get from some of these post is why does a new MMO have to be a "WoW KIller". Clearly WoW is years ahead of Rift, and by the shear time alone should have loads of subcribers(which it does). Let us not forget the Tirion and Blizzard are companies, whose sole purpose is it maximize profit, while producing a great product. If I can create and good game and need 10% of the subscriber base that wow has to turn profits, then so be it.
On another note I have been participating in the Rift Beta and have to say it has been very refreshing playing something besides WoW. In not claiming that RIFT will be uber succesful, but give a game chance. I don't know about you but I dont want to be playing WoW for another 5 years. We should be encouraging these new MMO's.
Feb 3rd 2011 3:14PM Good tip is to setup a macro so that you announce to your party when you have used your interrupt. With so many classes having the ability to interrupt it is silly when everyone uses it on the same spell cast only to have em all on CD next cast.
It doesn't have to be complex at all. On my rogue i use
/s Kicked, 10 sec CD
Also for rogues if Kick is on CD. Gouge, blind, cheap shot, vanish + kidney shot can all be used as long as the mob isn't immune
Nov 10th 2010 10:37PM Aldriana, I would just like to personally thank you for the countless time and dedication you have put into the rogue community. My rogue, is by far the class that makes me play this wonderful game and it is the insights that you and the EJ forums bring that allow us to play at our best. Keep up the good work!!!!
Chase as always thank you for shining a light on one of our greatest rogue resources!!

Get a new guild asap. It been widely discussed and proven that hit rating is not as important as it once was in BC. You merely need to ensure that you are at the poison hit cap( which i believe is 237) and the rest just comes with new gear. Any guild telling a rogue that they cant raid unless u have 350 hit is just fail. My guild has completed all wotlk content and my gear is somewhat ok and I still only have 257hit.( http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Alexstrasza&n=Tekniques ).

Energy ticks constantly so a good rogue could time his opener so that when u land it you instantly replenish 20 energy to use next special. ex. tick starts cast your opener at 1.8 sec into tick 1.9 lands, 2.0 replenish 20 energy.
Jul 23rd 2008 12:47PM Seriously guys have you ever played a Rogue and i mean to 70. Not some guy who runs bg's and thinks his opinion can justify that he knows something about the class
CD was OP imo. But to say we that we OP is an understatement. I have 2 70 rogues and about 6 more scatted about on different servers. WE are in desperate need for utility. AS stated earlier we bring nothing to raids in the from of utility(besides the occasional kick). One of our main finishers eviscerate hasnt scaled well to lvl 70, it basically does the same amt of damage at lvl 60. The class need some work
In pvp, certain specs are designed to stun lock but that s all we have to keep u in melee range. If not we are absolutely useless. We cant sheep, trap, send a pet, bubble, fear, heal,dispel, purge we can vanish but who care u still see me.
If you played the class to 70 you will find lots of ways to counter a rogue. Maybe those who have been pwnd got schooled by a skilled player.
It just burns me when I hear people say we are OP. We are not in the slightest
Jul 23rd 2008 11:39AM LOL vanish.... I wish that really worked. I'm not to worried about PVP being that I raid. What I'm tired of is the fact that Rogues should be the best single target dps in the game and the fact of the matter is we are not anymore. Equally geared hunters and warriors in the higher end raids are ahead of us DPS wise. Now beta is pumping up our dps by changing the buff mechanics of other classes(ie. windfury totems) but at the same time increasing those classes that are still on top with the same buffs. The marginal difference will still be the same in Wotlk as it is now. Hope Blizz can get it together.
Our job is simple. DPS, DPS, DPS and I wish we were king of the hill again with that
