0 rogues on last kill, probably 10 rogues on Garalon, enough said.
Wait.. NO ROGUES!?/?!!ELEVENTYONE!!
Guys get to the forums asap, rogues need a major buff right now, increasing their aoe damage by 500% and giving them permanent invisibility.
Mage wasnt used on first LK HC, reason?
Mage wasnt optimal on that fight, prolly same for rogue on Empress. It WILL be that some classes r less valuable on certain fights that other classes, accept it
So quit ur whining ><
I'm not sure what numbers you are looking at either. According to WoL and Gara'jal (A tank'n'spank fight for melee), rogues are topping most of the melee specs, not only that but the are doing double the damage of everyone else on Garalon.
Classes are never going to be absolutely perfectly balanced. When it comes to world first race, there will be class stacking and there will almost (if not always) be a class left out. This DOES NOT mean that rogues will never kill empress, just like it never meant that shamans will never kill the bosses they were left out on for the world first kill. These are top of the world guilds who are racing for the world first kill, they could have killed it with one or more rogues, but it may have made it that much harder.
As the strategies get out there and players get better at knowing what they should be doing at what time, the kill times will be reduced, the classes will become more even, and guilds that are not world first guilds will be getting kills with (and probably without) rogues. None of that will bother you, and this shouldn't either.
You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me!
World first is literally the biggest outlier by definition. You're not going to draw any statistically significant conclusions from it.
This is getting blown out of proportions though... omg we suck at some encounters. We are also really strong on some.
Still, the bigger issue with these fights is that melee is almost always a hindrance. This doesn't just apply to rogues, no one disagrees with that.

There is no point in arguing, we will only know the true reason a rogue didint get brought if Ahdehl would tell us.
It could be because he is combat and they needed better single target and he did not have 2 daggers or time to change his gear up for full min/maxing to get brought in.
Also like others have said they did not take a mage in their WotE heroic kill
The GM is a mage probably took an alt or another class more suited for the fight.
Also Ahdehl took an alt to their Wind lord kill seeing as his rogue doesnt have a kill count for him but has the ach.

Meh...usually things like this piss me off...but this time I just don't care. The mechanics likely didn't favor rogues or perhaps rogue dps just isn't quite high enough. You know those hardcore types are crazy and if rogue dps is lagging just a tiny bit they won't take them. Either way I know from personal experience that rogue dps is competitive enough. I'm regularly tops in raid finder and any Sha of Anger groups I get into and I don't even have good gear. Perhaps if I start raiding for realz and find myself struggling to keep up I'll start bitching.
