Aug 4th 2009 11:06AM "...resource requirements in Arathi Basin and Eye of the Storm have been lowered from 2000 to 1800."
Patch notes say 1600 did something change or is this a typo?

Great Blog with a great community base
May 8th 2009 4:25PM I think what your saying sounds like a great idea. However, (and I know I'm gonna hear a lot of negatives back on this) what about the PVP ramifications of mechanics like that. Even if we like the idea of Blizz trying to balance for both or not it is something they would try to consider). We all know how good they have been at the balancing game thus far (although it seems to be getting better.) I can imagine a huge influx of QQ about how healers in arena are getting too much healing in return for the damage they do or vice versa.

Amen!! That is exactly what I was going to say. I think people have been forgetting that this is just a game and has no real world consequences in and of itself. Sure I believe some kind of punishment is in order but a permanent ban seems a bit too harsh. Blizzard can easily roll back and remove the gained items and the achievements, they did it once when the honor vendors were giving away items for free. The amount of people that exploited that was easily in the 10,000s and all the did was put a note up on the login screen saying the items were being removed from the character inventories and that was it. No ban, no suspension, no nothing. Sure the item given here was much greater than free armor but still it was partially their fault as well whether it be by mistake or intentional it doesn't matter.
I personally think Blizzard is just acting this way is because it made them look bad. They were embarrassed and it pissed them off so they banned the guy.
Blizzard is acting like a little kid who just got his sand castle knocked over so he punches the other kid in the face and gets him and all of his friends who were with him thrown off the beach forever. Did the caste wrecker need to get scolded for not playing fair yes but thrown off the beach not so much.

You could go either way it PVP. It depends largely on what your hit rate is though. If you have a high hit % use slow/fast because your energy gains from Focused attacks will make up for the loss of DPS from the faster OH. If you have a lower hit % go with slow/slow the additional DPS from the slower weapon on your specials will be more beneficial to you. Poisons don't contribute as much in PVP (dispels, short fights, etc.) so its not something as heavily considered in regards to weapon choices.

I use a Mutilate/HfB 51/18/2 spec for raiding. (As soon as I get a good Fist Weapon or Sword I will probably give Combat a try.) For my second spec I am using Mutilate/Prep 41/5/25 for PVP. They are both pretty much the cookie cutters you can find on EJ's. I actually found it easier to use my PVP spec for the daily grind stuff which equates more closely to leveling. This could of course be because I leveled my rogue as sub daggers and always enjoyed the more "roguish" of the 3 trees and my PVP build gives more of the talents from the sub spec

Check out a add on called Event Horizon. It will help you determine casting priorities and also tracks uptime of your most crucial spells. It was designed originally for Locks but has since been expanded to other classes. I use it to manage my Rogue's Mutilate rotations and has been a life saver. I think it will be very beneficial for you especially having to learn a new rotation and all.
