Encrypted Text: Patch 4.2 gear guide for rogues {WoW}

Jul 7th 2011 4:41AM I think that you need to consult someting like http://shadowcraft.mmo-mumble.com a little bit more. The actual difference for most people will be less than 100 dps.

Jun 17th 2011 5:50AM Baby not doing the mother any good? Just plain nonsense. Women are never ever in their life in a healthier state. Their body is a life machine, and it shows - their skins glows, their hair grows thicker, their nails grow stronger.

Officers' Quarters: Ready to abandon ship {WoW}

Jun 7th 2011 4:12AM I was in a similar situation for a longgggg time, hoping it would get better. It never did. It was hard leaving. But undoubtedly the best decision I have made in my 6+ years of wow time. Just find the right guild and go; you will not regret one minute of it.

Breakfast Topic: What mods could you not live without? {WoW}

Jan 28th 2011 9:36AM I am looking for an addon that tracks all debuffs on the boss, out of all potential debuffs that the group can put up.
Armor, Attack Speed Slow, Bleed Damage, Bleed Damage, Cast Speed Slow, Healing, Physical Damage Reduction, Physical Vulnerability, Ppell Critical Strike Chance, Spell Damage Taken

Is there anything out there?

Breakfast Topic: Who's your nemesis? {WoW}

Dec 30th 2010 2:46PM Yep, Archomonde was the worst encounter. It took our guild well over 100 wipes to get that fight right. He hit like a freakin truck, and getting all 25 ppl in the raid to click their tears at just the right time, every single time....well, it came down to pure luck in the end. We tried another 100 times again, and still couldnt do it. Eventually I made a raid rule: 2 strikes and you are out - i.e. if you crater more than once in a raid, then you leave the raid immediately. Things improved considerably after that.

The Queue: Monster {WoW}

Dec 20th 2010 11:59AM The iLvl requirements are pretty dumb, insofar as its taken into account items in your bag, even if you are not wearing them. So, if you are just short of the required level, go get some higher cloth items from rep vendors and just leave em in your bags.

Encrypted Text: Rogue mechanics for the Cataclysm era {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2010 8:11AM The point I was trying to make is not that the damage output is more or less the same across specs. The issue that I have is that the rogue rotations have not changed since we were level 60. SS, SnD, Evis. Did it at level 60, still doing it at level 85.

Encrypted Text: Rogue mechanics for the Cataclysm era {WoW}

Dec 2nd 2010 5:16AM Here are my concerns around the rogue:
http://elitistjerks.com/f78/t110016-cat ... 1_30_10_a/

TLDR: Assassination and Combat spec are withn 3% DPS of each other. Assuming you go combat spec, there are two rotations. One rotation has 5 abilities, the other uses only 3 - the damage difference between these two rotations is only 2%. Lets leave Sub out of the argument; an incredibly complicated cycle for 5-10% less damage.

Quote:
Q: So the difference between doing the 5-button RvS/SS/SnD/Rupture/Evis cycle and the 3-button SS/SnD/Evis cycle is less than 2%?
A: That's about the size of it, yes.


Bottom line - you can get close to max dps with a rogue by using only 3 buttons. /yawn

One of the things that become quite evident since patch 4.01 is how fixed rotations for most classes are a thing of the past. Many abilities are now activated in one way or another (giving you instant casts, mana free or rune free spells, etc). For me, this makes gameplay so much more fun. I think that Blizz forgot about rogues for Cata.
