This will (hopefully) begin an era where Rogue single-target damage isn't balanced around our cleave potential.
Did you welcome when assassination couldn't get prep anymore, because Assassination would be balanced in pvp without it? How did Cata work for assassination pvp?
Did you welcome when combat couldn't get prep anymore either? Did combat pvp work in Cata too?
How about when they lengethed the cooldown on vanish and blind? Did they balance rogues around the bigger cooldowns, or have to revert the nerf?
How about when they linked prep and shadowstep- are rogues balanced around that right now? Reverting that nerf is necessary, and thankfully is totally happening.
Did you feel your single target this patch was actually underpowered? I felt my single target sustained as mutilate was splendid.
If you think you will be compensated if this nerf goes live, you have NOT been paying attention.
What does the blade flurry nerf have to do with pvp balance?
gosh BF is not meant to be a PVP skill it never was its a pure PVE skill we all know it and i dont like to do 75% less damage on garalon where i hardly pull 130k (prenerf) while others do the same without sacrificing anything i also tank garalon cleave
the ultimate answer's to all rogue issues in MoP:
-Reroll another class, who wants rougue's anyway.
-Diablo 3 Sold 15 Million Copys
-Haste will fix it
-Rogue's are fine
I'd like to see it as a CD as it once was personally, or even better, a mechanic where you can switch between 2 targets and still continue building CP to the same pool. something along the lines of
SS person 1, have 1 CP
SS person 2, have 2 CP and do 20% of SS's damage to person 1
SS person 1, have 3 CP and do 40% of SS's damage to person 2
SS person 2, have 4 CP and do 60% of SS's damage to person 1
SS person 1, have 5 CP and do 80% of SS's damage to person 2
evis either, use the the 5 CP and do 100% the damage to both.
its only the SS and evis damage (not auto attack) so not hugely OP
Let's stick to the 5.2 changes thread and the already existing 5.2 BF change thread. I get the desire to discuss this, but it's sprawling enough without pulling out more open topics.
