15 Minutes of Fame: When WoW meets real-world religion, part 2 {WoW}

Sep 21st 2010 5:36PM I couldn't agree more. It's just fantastic when people can actually talk about things (religious or not).

I loved it how he stays close to the topic of religion at all times and how he knows that his role on society is a 24/7 job. He's so open to discussion that he just rocks.

Jul 28th 2010 4:17PM As a hunter, I constantly use Misdirection and Feign Death to help myself and the tank manage our aggro. Now seeing that most threat reduction talents for dps classes are gone, how easy is controlling threat in cataclysm? (Especially for classes that don't have aggro managing abilities, i.e. Warriors, Paladins...)

Cataclysm Talent Preview: Rogue {WoW}

Jun 12th 2010 2:54PM I thought I might clear a bit the benefits brought by Murderous Intent.

The true question isn't about whether Mutilate is better than Backstab, but what should we do with 60 energy once the target gets below 35%? We've got 2 clear choices (for direct damage and combo points generation) Mutilate, of course, and Backstab.

Why should I use Backstab when Mutilate generates 2 combo points instead of 1?
Again, this isn't about a comparison between the two, but a comparison of the usage of 60 energy. In this case we must compare 1 Mutilate against 2 Backstabs. Both will grant you 2 combo points if nothing crits; up to 3 combo points if Mutilate crits and up to 4 combo points if both Backstabs crit. So Backstab has the upper hand when it comes to combo points (potentially).

Why should I use Backstab when Mutilate does more damage?
I'm not sure about this since I haven't done any math, but last time I checked Backstab fell behind Mutilate in terms of damage for about 70% (approx), so I believe that 2 Backstab crits will clearly outdamage 1 Mutilate crit. This is how I expect it to work but we can't know anything for sure until we test it on live.

There's only one thing I haven't considered in this whole post. The GCD. I don't know how it affects the outcome of overall dps, but it smells like it isn't much of a big deal since it's only 1 second...(you're using 2 GCDs for 2 Backstabs instead of 1 GCD for 1 Mutilate).

Jun 10th 2010 11:25PM Am I the only one missing the Ghostly Strike talent? My first guess would be that they're making it a trainable ability.
Can anyone confirm this, please?

Jun 10th 2010 11:02PM Has anyone noticed the absence of Ghostly Strike in the rogue's subtlety tree? Along with trying to make rogues tougher, my guess is that they'll make the ability trainable. Anyone can confirm this?
I mean c'mon, I actually liked that ability D=
