I was wondering if other rogue players also think that the Rogue class is performing very well anymore.
I'm playing Rogue since the release of Wow about 9 years ago ( Yes i'm an old guy ), and i enjoyed the class alot.
But recently i have the feeling we are rather stuck at a limit of the class and the abilities and rotations are getting a bit old.
Most of the time i find myself being raped by "Macro Hunters", Warriors and WW monks. Esp Warriors frustrate me a lot ( Shieldwall without using shield ... makes perfect sense *cough ). Sometimes i have a hard time bursting throught warriors second wind ( i have Tyrannical gear atm ). But well warriors are supposed to be a rogues "Anti" class. My other Main char is a warrior also from the start of WoW so he's been around a while also . I play Protection warrior in pvp most of the time ( i'm very objective minded in pvp "flag capping" and base defending ). Protection warrior doesn't do alot of Dmg but it gets the job done. Since MOP was released the Monk showed up, i wasn't sure if it would be like the DK back in Wotlk which i didn't enjoy that much. So i never tried monk until a month ago, i tested a friends lvl 90 WW monk in Pvp and fell in love . It was like Rogue 2.0 for me, i'm realy having fun with it and so on ... Getting little off topic here .
So the think is now that i have these 3 melee chars (not a ranged kind of guy ) i've put them to the test. I've been testing Warrior in pvp both Prot and Arms, prot is prot and is good for objective based stuff. Arms in Arena and BGs is just high bursting, good survivability if not to good. It feels like you are playing with a meatgrinder and the other players in the bg are the meat. After testing that i've been testing my friend's WW monk (mine isn't lvl 90 yet ), also about the same gear as my rogue and warrior. WW monk has nice dmg in pvp great survivability and nice escape speed.
***** Actual post part *****
(For starters i do not use Macros, on none of my chars )
So comparing these three melee classes Rogue realy do not perform that good in PVP from my point of view, Sub is the most fav. almost only reasonable competitive spec for PVP. And i feel that rogues are wasting a lot of time on keeping up Snd and other CP required abilities. Which other classes have as Passive abilities. So i feel that rogue is an ancient beat that is fun to play but is rather outdated for current PVP in WoW.
What do you guys think of current state of rogues compared to other classes ?
