    Coz they threw a bone with legendary daggers (not so legendary tbh) because we felt left behind during cata, now we're left behind again, players are really losing their patience with GC's behaviour of trolling rogues.

    The only class that can be considered as stale as Rogues are, is Mage. Yet, Mages have the luxury of simplicity where despite having a boring class a person can cope with it by making an effortless display of vanity in terms of performance and limitless effectiveness.
    Comparing mage to rogue seems a bit blaspheme to me, mage is great for raiding in any spec (try to raid as subt with rogue), all specs play very differently, all of 3 have strong aoe and cleave and mage's output is 100% player effort, there's not a 25-30% of dmg output granted by autoattack and so on...

    Totally agree. What I was implying was that even that blasphemous comparison is the most legit one as strange as it sounds.

    If you are behind a target and that gives you a damage boost--that doesn't seem unreasonable, particularly if the boost is smaller. I can't support an attack that only works behind the target.

    They seem totally committed to combo points on target. I think I'd just like redirect to be available more often; either reset by amount of damage (which would really help if you lose your points in a FoK pile); or by target death or something of that nature. Certainly a shorter cooldown.

    I'm actually in the minority of rogues who like the "passive" poison business, for what it's worth. I support having the pure classes have a spec or two that get really good numbers for average players. Maybe I don't support complex rotations in general.

    I'm going to jump in here and say this: mage level 90 Invocation is Hunger for Blood. Mages don't need a bleed; but then, we didn't need to channel a freakin' spell. Way, way off topic, but it's absolutely amazing to me that the devs brought back a form of HfB--surely one of the most absurd rogue abilities.

    Why even have attacks or bonuses for attacking behind a target? Apart from Ferals,there is no other class that has positional requirements and these requirements are the only ones that cannot be fulfilled under specific circumstances. (eg. Megaera, Tortos, Onyxia)

    Hunger for blood still exists tbh, it goes under the name "sanguinary vein" but is passive now...

    Wasn't HfB a buff? Because that is a pretty substantial difference.

    Yeah, believe it was 5% damage on a 60 second duration... It was basically vendetta, but in a permanently up buff.

    Gross. I'm glad HfB is gone. It was just one more thing to keep up that passively increased damage.

    I do miss Overkill and Garrote stacking VW though. It made openers and Vanishes really speed up your rotation.

    bleed removal was very nice. Especially for trollolol druids.

    HfB was a good idea done badly. I really liked how it worked in Naxx, even if it was a bit unforgiving. Adding it back as a sub ability and tuning the cost and duration properly would be great in my opinion.
