I think rogues are fun for the casual player as they are now, but in the hands of a truly skilled player, they are insane beyond all belief. I guess I can say it this way. For lvl 80 players, lets say 40% of each class is 'decent' at pvp, and 10% is very good. With rogues, it seems that 75% are decent at pvp, but only 2% are very good. That's what I like about the class so much. Don't get me wrong, my rogue is level 26, and I hit ambush in battle grounds and stuff dies (other than that I'm rather newbish), but I'm talking about the guy that still can take off all his gear but his weapons and win more than half his fights in the underbelly, the rogue that wins 2s battles when his partner is dead, and both opponents are at full health. (and yes, I have a guildie in mind, my 2s partner) There are some amazing rogues out there, and I hope this doesn't take away from the few that have escaped the binary encounter idea.
Mar 22nd 2010 3:53PM If you were leading a raid and gave loot to a guildie and the pug had won the roll, you would be gkicked and blacklisted. We almost gkicked a guildie that wanted a pug kicked so he wouldn't have to roll against him. If you PUG you give up any chance of making sure that a guildie gets loot unless you agree before hand.
