Dec 22nd 2010 2:40PM As a long time rogue I'd like to remind rogues that distract is a skill they have, and it's incredibly useful. Back in the day we distracted pats to keep them away from the group so we didn't wipe. Or to keep them in place so we could make the next pull faster. Or to keep them from seeing us when we tried to sap. Nobody distracts anymore.
Maybe spend some combo points on a stun or two instead of trying to rock the meters so that it mitigates damage incoming. Or remember to control the mobs that get loose with a well timed blind.
You know. Go back to being helpful. A well played rogue is one of the best classes to have in a 5 man group on hard or new content. They have so many tools to help the group be successful that "stabbing things" is not even in the top 5.
