dunno about you, but i have a 70 rogue twink, yes it hits like a truck, but so does everyone else in that twink bracket.
disc priest shields are enormous, ret pallies can full heal with ONE cast and if you cant heal/bubble/cloak, one set of lock dots kill you
dont even mention frost mages, just dont
just be glad they fixed the blood dk faceroll trucks and now theres one less juggernaut to deal with
In Mists they are both giving us resilience passively as we level, and reducing the weapon % damage on a lot of strikes to lower damage it at lower levels. So wait until then I guess.
The whole "wait until next expansion" is an echo from the last expansion. There's dramatic changes in MoP, but health as well as damage will be toned down, so they will likely have the same % range to balance in terms of damage, and Blizzard have shown that they really can't do it.
Low level WoW is balanced (lol) around players without heirlooms.
i do not know if it has already been stated and i am beating a dead horse or not but blizzard has stated that they have been looking at the dmg values of <85 abilities. Also that we should see a change with MoP.
Doesn't change the fact that Rogues are still going to have armor pen at level 20, which they don't need for anything.
but nnnnohoho, it would be too OP for Warriors to get Colossus Smash at level 20. They have to wait until level 81.
Game isn't going anywhere.
be ready to sacrifice who you are now, at any moment, for who you will become
I can say from experience that it isn't just Rogues, every class has a way to burst someone down within a few seconds or less.
Holy Paladins, of all things, were ridiculously effective in the lower level brackets for a while due to exorcism, which dealt a not-unreasonable amount of damage and they had great healing to boot, the other healers are similar though not quite as powerful as H Paladins were.
Hunters are basically ranged rogues, and if you're unlucky enough to step into one's range you may as well kiss your ass goodbye, as you're very unlikely to escape the constant concussive shots with your low level ability repertoire.
The other melee classes are arguably even more powerful than rogues, damage-wise with the only proviso being that they cannot stealth right up to you (with the exception of druids, but they lack their Ambush equivalent for a while).
And finally, the other ranged classes, especially those with dots, will likely drain your entire healthbar over the course of 30 seconds or so, which can be agonizing if you can't cleanse them or have someone who can around. They also have some pretty powerful burst, and mages and priests get a shield which scales well enough to negate most burst damage. Warlocks, despite their high damage, seem to get the short end of the stick at lower levels, however.
Nerfing only a few classes would be a mistake, the problem is endemic to every class, in varying degrees, in low level PVP.
Why are people whining about rogues? Mages & priests are most op classes at 70lvl... u cant win good disc priest in a duel, myself i won every class on duel even the good mages (fully twinked troll mage was only one who could beat me, cus racial gave him op burst).
Anyways all low level is broke. They say they will fix in MoP.
