I just tried to pvp with my sub rogue..and it feels weaker than a resto druid beating someone down in kitty form.
I'm wearing fullS11 epic pvp gear, sitting at ~145k hp, ~60%ish resilience, 22% pvp Power, Fear & Vengeance, all setup like I had it pre-5.0(took a short break)..I wandered into a BG Hopes high, looking to have some fun, after our raid.
Noticed a few key spells are missing, but I thought little of it - no Prep was kinda painful to see, choosing between shadowstep and prep is a rather..bleh choice. No combat Readiness either without speccing into it.. Not liken where this is going, but I still thought it could still be good!
BG starts up, EFC is all alone - 85 Warrior. I open up on him with a Cheap shot> pop all CDs>Shadow step Ambush!....14k? Ambush!...11k?
Well he breaks out of my CS with 80% hp...turns and hits me for 85k Heroic Strike, Stuns me and finishes me off with ease inside Shockwave.
What the hell happened? Ambush and Back stab hit like wet noodles now - 5k ambushes aren't uncommon now. Lost a lot of our Survival CDs, and now Eviscerate is our main DPS ability? I'm so very confused.
Am I doing something wrong? Is Sub just not viable anymore? I really wanted to level my rogue, but it just feels unplayable...
From Skada: Average Ambush(104 crits, 2 non crits): 17.6k, Min: 4k, Max:25k(on a clothey). Backstab average: 11k.
