Encrypted Text: Why patch 3.1 won't transform Rogues {WoW}

Mar 18th 2009 2:07PM Ya know, it's not so much that I disagree with what Chase says...it's that he's wrong.

"ensure that the tree remains at the top of the meters..."

Um, gear and skill being relatively equal, Combat is never at the top of the meters in WOTLK so far...it goes bugged-HAT, well-stacked-HAT, HfB, then Combat.

"new bonus to DP proc frequency has also been buffed to ensure that the "poisonless" Mutilate spec of Instant/Instant/Eviscerate will never see the light of day."

Um, IIV is right now the highest non-HAT spec/rotation in the game. It has seen the light of day (I've been using it personally for over a month), and with BiS, is ahead of IDN (and, of course, gimpy combat). The Envenom glyph was removed because it gave a bit of an armor-ignoring boost to HAT (which was already needing to come back to earth), and it made IDN* rupture-free Mutilate cycles possible, defeating the entire purpose of attaching HfB to a bleed.

Could we maybe get someone from EJ, like Aldriana, to write this column, someone who actually knows what's going on with rogues?
