Mar 25th 2009 7:50PM Rogue - with respect, not really. I can Google "climate change" and get all sorts of data.
You made a claim that Arena Junkies has a consensus. It makes sense there would at least be a few threads on the topic. I'm just asking for a couple of them so I can see where you are getting that. (I couldn't find any in the Gladiator section, but I don't generally search for that topic.)
Who knows, maybe you can teach me something.
Mar 25th 2009 4:51PM "It is consensus, clearly reached, that rogues are among the least survivable class. "
Could you link to the consensus please?
Mar 25th 2009 4:13PM I love how, when a rogue clicks his Vanish button fast enough to avoid a deathcoil, it is called "rogues showcasing their skill".
And, when a non-rogue clicks his AoE button fast enough to catch a rogue Vanishing, it is called getting "gibbed by n00bs with lucky hits".
Mar 25th 2009 2:01PM I found this a nice article to read to get a rogue perspective on things. However, a lot of went in circles and doesn't make a lot of sense.
You state, "Rogues are still able to defeat our traditional opponents. Most casters, and many physical damage dealers will fall when ambushed from stealth.." Then you bemoan the lack of caster defenses you have. It's not enough that "most" fall, you need all of them to?
You state, "While our ability to evade damage has been part of our class' definition, it has reached the point where we can no longer be balanced around the idea of using our cooldowns to survive." Then you request buffs to your cooldowns. Do you want all these skillful cooldowns or not?
The reason your survivability is down is because Arena is filled to the brim with DKs and Paladins. These classes give everyone trouble. In BC, rogues could pretty much control every situation. Because of burst and "balancing", the torch has passed to another class.
Sorry. At least you have all that skill that everyone widely agrees you have.
