rogues are in a weaker spot. so some people may shelve them, believe it or not, its a fairly decent way to show blizz there is an issue. (I have not shelved mine, infact, I went from an arms warr TO a rogue)
just had to point out what a godawful generalisation that was. may god have mercy on your soul.
EDIT: for what its worth, rogue damage is absolutely fine, bringing up wound poison was needed as it was better to use deadly then wound at its current damage levels. making it ridiculously useless.
the thing we need is mobility. paralytic + shiv is a step in the right direction, but quite frankly, we have had our entire toolbox broken down and given to others (upping their mobility) and been given nothing in return. which leaves us in our current predicament.
rogues are the equivalent of snipers in fps games. they have so much potential, but more often then not are wasted on idiots.
Other players seem to dislike rogues simply because, you cant see them coming.
'nobody is at flag in mid, go get it' rogue there.
'nobody is at MT go cap it. rogue there.
and so on and so forth, but even that.. isnt a rogue exclusive anymore, we have druids of all specs, nightelves if still, hunters, heck even priests have a vanish! mages temporarily..
