Sep 23rd 2010 2:51PM I doubt it, it's been that way on the beta since the start, it appears we have traded the ability to force players to drop target for the 3 seconds immunity, pets never dropped target anyway.
Sep 16th 2010 6:44PM With the new immunity you no longer cause a player/pet to drop target, you enter a state of vanish and no damage will knock you out while in this state, after the affect wears off you will hear the "entering stealth" noise and a pet that was attacking you will hit you and knock you out of stealth, spells also seem to be able to do it if you were targeted before you used vanish, although this could have been affected by high lag on the beta BG servers.
Reports of vanish being fixed have been greatly exaggerated :(
Sep 8th 2010 6:50PM I'm having a great time as Assassination on the beta, venomous wounds is wonderful and working out the best rotation is keeping me busy.
I want to try out combat, but there are no fast off-hands that i have found with melee dps stats, are we going to be using 2 slow weapons as combat?
Sep 8th 2010 6:41PM I have Blurred Speed on my rogue on the beta and it's fully functioning. ( Unless something has changed in the last 24 hours)
Jun 9th 2010 2:08PM Of all the Mods I've seen listed, EventHorizon is the absolute best, I use this with Ice Hud and MSBT, every piece of information you need in your direct field of view, letting you focus on not dieing in the fire.
Jun 6th 2010 10:44AM I only started playing after 2.2, i remember well mt first kara visit, i had dinged 70 only a day before and was in Nagrand doing the daily skinning quest. I had the invite box pop up on my screen, i accepted and a summon quickly followed....next thing i'm in kara on Nightbanes ledge, a quick explanation and a pull, I learned very quickly that dragons cleaved :P a wipe or two later i'm sporting my first epic ( the leather chest).
we continue into the instance, i'm learning as i go and then we get to Illhoof, i'm dps'ing away switching to the chains and back to the boss, concentrating on my rotation, oblivious to everything but the boss, next thing i hear is tank's dead, it was the OT, but i suddenly realize it me the MT and one healer left, at 2% the MT goes down, i evasion tank the last 2%,clean up the imps as the priest spams herself, and we save a wipe,the other 8 ppl are cheering in vent, a smile is beaming across my face. the thrown weapon drops and it is just given to me immediately, a well deserved piece of loot.
My first ever raid and it was epic, so kara will always hold a special place for me.
May 5th 2010 1:31PM I lol'ed when I saw this too, its funny that you got downvoted for pointed out a glaring error in the post.
Rogues gain no benefit for spellpower ever, not even poisons, that's attack power based.( for any new rogue reading this before the edit)
we do however gain a slight benefit from spell crit, just do not EVER gear or gem with spell crit (or int) in mind. Don't click off Arcane brilliance when you get buffed with it, as a rogue i know used to do, "its just not rogueish" was his reason.
Apr 1st 2010 10:39AM ICEHUD and Event Horizon are really the only ad-on's a rogue needs, everything else is just icing on the display.
Slice Commander is very useful as well, i can be configured to play sounds when reaching the end of timers; SnD, HfB and more importantly upon reaching a set value of energy, it can also be completely hidden and doesn't cause clutter.
Feb 17th 2010 6:57PM i don't know why i continue to read chases' posts, and this one could really spell the death knell as far as my interest goes.
ganking is not in any way a part of playing a rogue its part of the game for every class, i play a rogue and i never gank -where ganking is defined as picking a fight you have a very high chance of winning ( much lower level char than you, outnumbering a char , picking on a char that is busy mid fight with a mob, opening from stealth) - but i do love world pvp, and if someone picks a fight with me i'll gladly show them how wrong they were at their easy target selection this time :P
but some people do have this urge to only pick fights when they have the complete upper hand, i leveled through it and came out the other side, ive even turned the tables on players much higher level than me, and other player just see a rogue and attack them simply because its a rogue, a sentiment expressed by a few commenters so far, and chases post this week will do no favors to leveling rogues as he is focusing the hate on us some more, you'd think he played a pally or something, the true chicken shit gankers imo.....oh wait......he does.
anyway tl;dr chace is a jumped up pally trying to play a rogue who browses other forums for his ideas ( ulduar class advice -name-checking feist after stealing his idea dosent make it right ), and is really clutching at straws to fill his weekly quota with this terribad post.
May 24th 2009 9:31AM i can only reply to my own comment not to someone who replied to my original comment, it this intended?
i haven't yet come across an add-block feature for a mobile phone browser, which is what my comment refers too...
