Now we have combo point generators that does damage and that's it. There's nothing fun about them.
Proud European, engineer and asshole.
I totally agree with you cuz rogues r so nerfed nowadays that he can kill another rogue and only. In arenas they cant handle any other class. They lost their tough defence, they r not so tough damagers they used to be i luved to be rogue but its so discouraging now Most of the skilles is survival skills to click then damaging it is vary lame No one can say now that Combat rogue is Toe To Toe spec cuz every other spec can tear him limb from limb
And when you say combat was never designed as a pvp spec... you miss out on the majority of BC where combat maces was the most popular pvp spec? Non dagger combat seemed pretty solid in vanilla also.
This is neither here nor there - but I always felt a cool and flavorful talent for combat rogues would be something that lets them wear mail armor. They already have the armor ingame (unless something has changed it would just be the hunter gear). I mean think about it, this isn't an assassin or sneaky subtly rogue ... this is a combat rogue. They are in the front lines and therefore should have some extra protection. I know they used to have that gheybird reinforced leather talent... but I'm talking full fledged 'you are now allowed to wear mail armor' talent.
I know.. probably impossible but I always wanted to see it.
i hope they reduce it to like 10% instead of 20since its damage is reduced so much will you be removing or reducing the energy generation penalty?
On Blade Flurry? Yes, perhaps. (Source)
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
Granted it would be hilarious to start taking armor from hunters after soo many expacks of hunters taking armor from us.
On the mail thing, the only real benefit I see to having multiple dps specs for the same role is if they are better at different things (which granted blizz doesn't seem to agree with), so a change that prevents you to respeccing from or to combat by having it use mail seems silly as you then couldn't take advantage of all the specs with your gear (granted we do have to switch weapons).
Though I guess if blizz is really intent on them all being roughly even at everything and all playing really, really similarly, not being able to swap specs due to mail armor doesn't matter...

All I ever play is Combat, that is just how I like it.
Never had an interest in Ass or Sub, don't like wielding two daggers (excepting when they were my Legendaries), rather have a pair of swords.
Mists has kinda effed that up, about the only thing you can find for Rogues is the occasional axe or mace, but plenty of daggers & fist weapons. Maybe one aGI sword, the Halloween one?
Sure would be nice to have a pair of 1-handed AGI swords TMogged into Hanzo's Sword; duel wielding katanas…!
As for the Mail armor, I would TOTALLY be down for that; Combat IS supposed to be the toe-to-toe spec, let us have a bit of better armor to soak up some of that damage.
I also agree that Rogues should get a Tank spec, and think Combat would be the one to do it. Make it a hybrid Tank/DPS spec; Combat Rogues tanking fights, holding the bosses attention AND still topping the DPS meters…! That would be cool…
we've lost those things for a reason. they werent needed.
going back to them isnt the solution. we need new things.
Not flying my Sig because somebody got butthurt because I posted a question that they didn't like in they're little pet post and sicked ScrapBot on me :P
Combat is not too bad in PvP atm. It has good damage. If you blow AR/AB on someone they will die quick unless you get peeled off. They have burst with KS which is also a mechanism to regain energy and more or less be unpeelable for 3.5 seconds, and insight now stacks on the Rogue and so you have to be heavily cc'd to lose it.
They are getting Prep as baseline like all Rogues and so will have Prep and Step. They will also have much better energy regen with extra haste on gear in 5.2 and they scale extremely well with gear generally. They are getting a 5% AP buff. They are and will be fine.
However, I will be playing Sub in 5.2. It is very hard to peel atm on the PTR.
