They played with prep so much..it's like a giant ping pong of a talent (now skill). So many things taken off and then reinserted...
How will a 4% to SV make it crazy in PVE suddenly?
I believe sub to still scale a bit better than assassination, even on live. I think S will exceed A next patch once we are all running around in 520+ gear. I dunno about "crazy", but it should be strong.
Well, it'll have 120 second cooldown. But I definitely support a 130 seconds pve blind instead of a minute.
Vanish cd reduced to 2 min, CoS to 1 min, prep no longer resets CoS cd, blind cd increased to 2 min.
Crimson Tempest's bleed damage multiplied by 8.
They've managed to break CT tooltip for assa, it shows 288% bleed damage (tooltip interacting with assassin's resolve) but in fact bleed still does 240%.
Mutilate damage during high target sustained aoe is only behind survival (which I think was buffed because hunters are definitely tuned too low) and of course (sigh) vengeance buffed tank damage.
Cloak on prep was amazing for pve, Sha heroic could stay out so much longer but meh a lot of magic damage in 5.2 anyway.
Not a lot of the bosses we tested so far are rogue friendly, at least vanish 2mins and cloak 1min make life smoother for pve and pvp, now they just need to lower the cd on shadow step inline with the other gapcloser most classes can spam.
