Jun 24th 2009 7:49PM Dude I know....Honestly...? In the grand scheme of every other class...I'd wager to say we have it pretty good! no. Excellent. We put out mind numbing damage, have one of the best AOE's in the game. Please leave us alone Blizzard. And as far as vanish. Leave it broken. If it keep us "even" I'm all for it.
Jan 23rd 2009 12:31PM I just read all the comments and there's a lot of QQin goin on...5500 MAX dps?! is that on any boss? our rogues have hit 6k b4 on OS....and are almost always top dps...bear in mind this is mutilate but still....Some of you (i say respectfully) just need to learn the rotations emotional and figure out what stats your going for....hit>expertise>agility>ap/crit>haste Just saying before the patch and after the patch....I've been pretty happy with our damage....now given....dk's and pally's needed a nerf but it seems like a lot of people who should still be top dps....aren't because of maybe how they play...if your damage is low on recount (which I imagine everyone uses) try envenoming and timing your ruptures to run out b4 the bosses trash etc get out of range (like malygos fights etc) The unforseen problem with our dps especially in regards to poison heavy specs..ESPECIALLY if your poison hit capped is...say your deeps are at 4200 dps....and then saph goes into the air....CLEAN IT UP...get your dots off him no more ruptures...then stop targeting him...when those poisons and ruptures are ticking it SEVERLY hurts our numbers...from a pure recount standpoint...you can go from 4200 to 3800 in a matter of a few seconds.....just due to the fact that your not balls to wall pounding on him anymore...Another thing that you guys are missing is....DIFFERENT STROKES (or stabs XD) FOR DIFFERENT FOLKS....Do you honestly expect to be top dps on anub? maybe a bad example but....in a fight where there's a ton of adds and your running around frantically trying to get back into range while a warlock PUMMELS EVERYONE?! NO! The game is not fighting the same fight everytime.....now on a fight like the instructor, KT etc...where your literally pounding ONE target...yea you should be doing top....people lose the sight that rogues are amazing...but no matter what...some fights will not allow us to fully open up our can of whoop ass....just crack it and take a sip. ;) Love you all still as fellow rogues! Didn't mean to offend anyone!
Paramourn - Insomnia/Firetree 51/13/7 poison hit capped/expertise capped/ 3300 ap 31 crit unbuffed
Jan 23rd 2009 12:06PM Chase your friggin awesome man...love your posts as I've grown a lot....now with proper direction..am both expertise capped and poison capped still with 3300ap and 31 crit....=) I feel the same way about the pally nerfs...they should have got hit with that bat a little more....like "hey!! how bout when your UTTERLY INVINCIBLE" and have a aoe down (to keep me from vanish) you can ONLY self cast....healz buffs etc. I mean let me think here....if you have a shield up....last time I checked nothing goes past it....FROM BOTH SIDES! XD anycase I'm just whining.....I'm usually in the top 3 for raid dps and do well in pvp...but am gonna have a blast now that they have been gutted a little......nothing more satisfying than splitting apart a plate wearing toon with my cute little leather outfit, webbed death, and murder daggers XD
Hey also have a question for you guys.....with fan o knives being spammable...and the fact that noone can dodge/parry/miss etc any of my melee including poisons....how many enemies should be present for the dps to be higher per energy as compared to a mutilate. 4 enemies? 6 enemies? 100 enemies? lol let me know your thoughts...
