Nov 11th 2009 6:20AM The vanish fix is not granting us immunity. the incoming dmg is not bypassed by vanishing. The vanish fix is aimed at lvling the playing field for players that have less than perfect internet connections.
This fix was a long time coming. It has moved passed the realm of crying, imo. Vanish is an important feature in rogue game play. Our frames should be removed from our targets after a vanish. This is not the case right now.
Nov 11th 2009 6:07AM I agree with this. I know complaining about stealthing falls on deaf ears. I think the majority of pvpers would cry "nerf" if vanish worked properly.
I am having a hard time opening up on players, and vanishing to escape. It is ridiculous how many times ive been hit with HoJ at a good 15 yrd distance while stealthed. It is very annoying. It is almost worth it to take the xtra talent points out of supplemented stealth and add it to poison mastery.
This is off topic, but it seems that recent and upcoming updates are aimed at making it impossible for rogues to hold their own against anyone in plate armor. I am not crying "nerf", i am just pointing out the obvious. rogues are in need of more survivability, and a properly working vanish button is a good start, but maybe not enough.
