    People complaining about endless mana bars on healers obviously do not play a healer.

    definetly l2p. Mercader got carried, like all the other people Swifty plays with.
    Cry Mercader. Sad that you cant kill a resto druid in a stunlock anymore, welcome to how every other are.

    Rogues whining about not being the most op class anymore, funny. "Cant kill something in a stun anymore, cry cry cry"

    Utility nerfs still reduce damage output.

    Warrior - Avatar nerf reduces their damage indirectly (less time on target) and won't generate as much rage. Gag order being removed is pretty massive as well, we shouldn't die just as fast cause our healers might actually be able to heal during the burst.....
    Mage - Deep freeze nerf reduces the damage they can tunnel into you
    Ret - Wings cd nerf, less damage

    Nah, rogues are whining about being the least viable DPS class for PVP. Surely you've realised this by now, or are you really that slow?

    Warriror with cd's up need next to no uptime to kill you, rage lol arms only has 2 moves that even cost rage at all. With all the charging and second wind rage arms is lol whats rage in pvp thats part of what makes the spec so faceroll in pvp.
    Mages 4secs is more than enough time for a mage to kill you still that fixed nothing.
    Ret wings cd hasn't changed unless you're facing someone using pve 4piece...

    What about that made you think that? The changes to those classes isn't going to stop them from the retard burst they they can put out. If a warrior can drop you in 3secs of a gag order now they can still do it in 5.1 and just have their partner cc the healer instead or just kill the the healer in a shockwave...

    5.1 will just be dead in a shockwave or dead in deep freeze they fixed nothing about that.

    The answer to your question is yes, the class is garbage in pvp. Go pvp on a 90 rogue and see for yourself.

    Representation of classes in arena:
    http://www.crossladder.com/arena/stats/

    On to the video:

    Near the end of the video, you can see a 3 stack of lifebloom, which blooms to heal the druid for over 50% of their health.
    You can't win against that unless you can kill the druid in a silence/stun.
    Rogues don't have enough burst to do that, nor do they have enough sustained to force the druid to waste his defensive cds.
    Warriors/hunters/enhancement shamans, to name a few, would be able to kill a resto druid in that situation.
    Also, if that resto druid had specced into heart of the wild, he could go cat form and do more burst than a rogue would do.

    Just saying.

    the only healer having significant mana issues is priests. all the other healers are just fine mana wise.

    Im usually OOM within 1-2 minutes on my pally playing against melee cleaves or kfc's, if we survive the burst ofc. I would say I oom half of 3's games I lose at least.

    Blind two minute cooldown, now three.
    Vanish two minute cooldown, now three.
    Cloak 90 second cooldown, now teo minutes.
    Used to be able to prep into second smokebomb, and second shadowstep to get a kill. Prep no longer resets bomb, and step and prep are exclusive.
    While second bomb was OP as shit, removing it is a massive uncompensated nerf.
    A prep rogue can no longer step redirect kidney, or step gouge. These were pro rogue things that I made use of.
    A prep rogue can no longer step kick or step charge, pro rogue things I did not do.
    Backstab no longer has 20% extra critical damage.
    Backstab and hemo damage rolled into eviscerate. While this change is cool, remember that rogues in pvp use finishers on kidney shot, recuperate slice and dice, and rupture.
    Sub rogues have to rupture. Previously our hemo granted a damage bonus, now it is a weak finisher not otherwise worth casting, but it is still madatory or we lose like a fifth of our damage. This also shits all over target swaps, where we essentially have about -60 energy compared to before: it is the worst pvp change possible. GC said at the time that he was aware there were pvp issues, and that the change was happening for pve, and that buffs eould happen. There have been literally 0 rogue buffs since that point in beta, only nerfs.
    A sub rogue used to kidney, evis, and recup. Now add rupture and slice, as our energy regen was moved to slice from recup, and the above mentioned rupture change, and then remember that evis went up in damage while builders went down and notice the huge discrepancy when you remember that we now have less finishers and less combo points AND weak builders.
    Rogues no longer gain 20% healing recieved (cats can still).
    Rogues no longer take 6% less damage during recup, in addition to recup costing so much more relatively.
    Recup nerfed even with the glyph
    Shiv redesign has benefits, but lowers rogue control significantly.
    ---<<< CRIPPLE DOWN TO 50% FROM 70% >>---


    These are rogue nerfs. They all hurt a lot. Your assessment about other classes gaining wild buffs is true, but the rogue changes have been devastating in pvp.

    The cripple change is shocking. The 70% snare was our reason for having poor mobility- now it gets taken away PLUS a huge mobility nerf?



    Now obviously as a lifetime rogue main, he's a bit biased - but that's actually a pretty big list of nerfs that as he points out, when taken in aggregate, explain a lot more of why rogues suddenly went from overpowered last season to terrible this season than the loss of legendaries and vial explain.

    The rogue legendary proc last season wasn't very effective in pvp - it took over a minute of up-time to build up 30+ stacks at which point it became possible for the legendary to proc (but it may not proc until up to 2 minutes / 50 stacks if you weren't lucky), once procced you spam some eviscerates - but spamming eviscerate was what Subtlety did anyways. The proc was weakest for the only really competitive rogue spec last season (Subtlety). CC'ing the rogue for like (10 or 15 seconds, but in either case a proper CC train always did it) would reset their stacks, so against any RLS or RMP or the like (warlocks, mages) where a CC chain is always a succession of fears to fears to fears (or polys to polys to polys), you never saw the legendary even proc: without the proc the weapons themselves had stats equivalent to heroic deathwing weapons (of which, heroic gurthalak was the strongest weapon of the expansion by far).

    The real problem was that rogues were just too strong by the end of the season (they scale well every expansion but start out weak as a consequence, as some people already mentioned), and Vial - even after the significant nerf - was still way too good (so were Cunning and Fetish). Combined with strong seasons for mages, affliction locks and disc priests - rogues were in high demand for RMP's and RLS's (and as a result, last season consisted of RMPs and RLS's overwhelmingly).
    I think this is one of the best summaries I have seen for things. I don't think rogues are in a horrible place, however, when you add up the little nerfs overall, with the buffs to other melee classes overall, and the beginning of the expansion blues, it makes things relatively bleak at the moment for rogues. It will get better though.

    Because an improperly geared/gemed and 1v1 rogue should be able to kill a fully geared/gemed healer? This is a horrible example of anything.
