I've only played Combat and Sub as Rogue, and never at high levels, but I did find it odd that Sub loads so much damage onto combo-point builders, and both specs spend a lot of time on buff maintenance.



At first playing a sub rogue helped me adapt to holy power on my pally. Now combo points tied to a target seem quaint.

It's nice to refresh SnD for the coming Envenom on the next target!
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Combat's design for a long time now has been smart use of cooldowns tied to buffs to lay on damage.

But mostly the issue that people complain about is that ratings decay at the start of every expansion makes rogues feel weak due to fewer APM as they don't have the haste that they had in final tier raid gear.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

for most classes it is simply lower numbers, running out of mana sooner etc, but with rogues (and feral druids i am guessing, i havent played mine enough, but one of them will be next to be leveled) the loss of haste completely shuts down the flow you had, and can, at least seem like, half your energy regen rate

So I've been noticing for a while now that I don't seem to fly as far as I should if I point myself where I want to go, hit auto-run, then alt tab. I finally did some digging on forum posts, and turns out I'm not just imagining things: The game now stops your character moving after 20 seconds if you alt-tab from full screen mode. And starts moving again when you tab back, so the only clue it's happened is the lack of progress you've made. Arg. Guess I need to get in the habit of briefly tabbing back every 20 seconds on long journeys...

Yeah I think rogues are being abandoned, even mine, switched from muti to combat to change it a little, combat is so bad at DPS now, only 2 target fights are good (Garalon, perhaps Amber shaper for a short time on phase 1).

Then I dinged an spriest to 90 and find out they are going to be nerfed.. arrgh!

I better stick with either my ele shaman or destro lock in the meantime..

The nerf with shadow is only to healing. The DP change was reverted in today's build, and that actually might have been a buff, which is why they likely reverted it.

Spriests are still muddling in the middle at best on solo target fights, but they aren't as bad as some other classes.

It asks if you want to install.

Over wifi, it downloads and prepares the update to install, or at least it's doing so for 6.0.1 to 6.1.

- Tell boss yer taking afternoon off due to sickness (migraine)
- boss gives the a-ok
- take sleep-inducing drugs and painkillers to ride off the migraine
- boss calls 2 hrs later to tell me I just got new work at a campus, waking me up in the process
- ask boss how urgent the wos are
- get told the work orders are not really urgent

Seriously? That could have waited till... I dunno, tomorrow!?

Now I am awake, really cranky and my migraine is still here...

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but this is my current frustration.

We are cancelling raid nights for lack of people. We've tried recruiting, but we're really behind the curve (6/6 1/6 0/4). We only raid 2 to 2-1/2 hours per night 2 nights a week, and some of our team can only do one night. Our core has been together forever (we formed during BC doing Karazhan). I left them for a short time in BC to do 25 man raiding (there was no 10 man option at the time). I've promised myself I wouldn't leave them again.

I know my raid leader is doing everything in his power to fill out our team, but he can’t make people join up. He can't make them log in at raid time. I know our raid leader has to be getting frustrated too.

I’m not really sure what to do other than to just keep plugging away at it.

I'm pretty much in the same spot. We were 3% away of being 3/6 in HoF and then we had to stop raiding. we haven't raided in 3 weeks due to shortage of people...

So, as I'm sure you are all aware, there is a massive manhunt going on down here for an ex-cop who has killed 3 and wounded 2 others.

Getting swept under the rug is that one of the local police agencies apparently declared open season on anyone driving dark colored pickup trucks, and shot 2 people in one truck and shot at another person in a different truck. With a little less luck, the body count from the police could match that of the guy they are supposed to be looking for.

At least they found the guy's truck, otherwise I'd be concerned a bit about driving at night (I live a few miles from where that local police agency operates).

All that means is that they no longer know what colour truck he is now driving. And the LAPD aren't exactly working to disprove his allegations by running around shooting up cars because they are blue.

I hear you. Best thing is to be patient and wait until your alt is high level and can AOE easily. A high level tailor in that Icecrown cathedral place or farming those Argent Tournament quest mobs can wrack up a fair amount of cloth. If you are not high level or not a tailor (no Northrend scavenging bonus), it's painful. I used the DMF +5 skill points to skip the worst of it.

True. And when two mexican-american women delivering newspapers get shot up because they happen to be on the street, yeah... Gonna be some big lawsuits and activist stuff around this one.

Ironic thing is that the LA County Sheriff's office is far worse than the LAPD. LAPD you can talk back to, Sherrifs will lock you up for the night for raising an eyebrow.

Is your alt 90? Can only do it once a week, but one of the better places I've found is soloing Naxx - get quite a bit of cloth in about an hour's time (plus shots at battle-pets and a bit of gold) - clear pretty much all the trash there.
