Shuriken Toss. They added it in for that exact reason; so the move could give a little ranged versatility if necessary, not to form some new spammable rotation or give rogues some viable range-class option.
I'm kinda suprised no one linked this from the front page
"We are experimenting with allowing Smoke Bomb to reduce the damage done to allies by 20%. We agree that rogues are lacking in the group utility department and we'd like to see less use of Smoke Bomb strictly as an offensive ability in PvP."
Now if that worked in pve. It's about time we get some kind of raid CD.
why do we have to get a dmg reduce cd there are so many of them i'd rather like to see TotT being a raid CD since threat is not a problem anymore
the ultimate answer's to all rogue issues in MoP:
-Reroll another class, who wants rouge's anyway.
-Diablo 3 Sold 12 Million Copys
-Haste will fix it
-Rogue's are fine
While I'd never complain about utility, when I read that, I immediately said: "Oh right, majority of the rogue community is complaining about how passive, boring and stale the class is... why not take a move that looks like they just lit a cigarette and make it reduce damage of the other 3 people in range. That'll help."
I think this class is making me cynical.
