    I just find it "funny" when people think something is fun. I mean ret was fun when you could one shot raid bosses. Playing a tank in PvP was fun when you couldnt be killed by 6 people attacking you.

    But if sub is only fun when you can kill almost everyone within 3-4 seconds unless they have immunities then sub isn't fun at all. It currently is broken (like some other specs in pvp, but not that crazy). Being fun because you are invulnerable isn't going to work.

    Man you really dont get it. i believe you dont play rogue.
    Assasination is dead simple , slow and boring and it is in that state forever. Outlaw has so much rng embedd into dps output that even if you perfectly manage all of your abilities and energe etc...you still can be dead bottom. What is the fun it ?

    But subtley is considered most fun as it is a bit more challenging than other spec to execute it correctly and always was, its with faster pace and management of burst windows. It allow you for a lot of control which is not present in other spec. THAT IS WHY ITS FUNNY. This spec was literally unplayable due to the output for long time.

    of course most 5% of the skilled player can get something from every spec but we need to look at it from perspective of ordinary player not elitist.

    Blizzard balance is like it is. its a constant circle of clasess having more or less power ( with exclusion of mages and locks who are ALWAYS good).Relax

    Subterfuge + Dark Shadow OR Nightstalker + Enveloping Shadows??
    In the first I have 3 secs to apply Cheap shot> SS> SS> Rupture and then proceed with an awesome buff inside the shadow dance ...
    In the second I start with Shadow Dance after Cheap Shot ... and without the Dark Shadows buff BUT I have 16 seconds inside Shadow dance ...!
    I'm really in doubt ...
    It's a bit late, but Enveloping shadows, as you can get an uptime of Shadowdance to 80%, with the legendary, as the legendary (unless nerved) will give you combo points aswell.

    Honestly, this legendary is the entire reason why Sub is so stupid strong right now.

    Edit: And Nightstalker for PvP, the burst damage during Shadow-dance, with such an high uptime is important.

    Nothing to do with how strong it is. I find shadowdance windows more fun to play than outlaw or assassin.

    It is not just the legendary that is the problem. Enveloping Shadows is too difficult to balance because of that extra charge of dance. Remove the charge and the spec can be balanced properly.

    I kind of disagree, the charge gameplay is for a more relaxed type of gameplay, where you never "waste" a cd reduction on Shadowdance. If anything, remove the additional second off through the talent, if you wish to hit it hard.

    I myself am not against 1 charge only S-Dance gameplay myself, but I fear that if they just nerf it, without buffing it's compeditors, we'll be relying on a single legendary for the DPS output.

    Hence I'd like to see the Legendary nerfed to a normal level, and balance applied to the entire row of talents, since right now, dark shadows doesn't increase "by" 30%, but from it's now baseline 15% -to- 30%.

    Edit: We could also just remove the 15% baseline damage increase, half the effectiveness of the Legendary, and remove the additioncal cd reduction from Enveloping, as a start?

    About Assassination, i think it's just gonna be reliable as always. The actual numbers? Gonna wait first raid and warcraft logs and updated simcrafts. Though i also think the biggest hit on the spec was the diminishing return on the secondary stats, especially haste given how it's a dot-based spec.

    Subtlety gets the upper hand because a) it didn't have aoe at all and now it's getting an actual aoe rotation and b) it actually makes use of every stat - mastery for finisher damage, crit for FW uptime, haste is an obvious one. Having some of all is gonna be a good thing.

    Anyway, again, balance pass has yet to happen, and i expect it to be not good at all. Some outliers will be fixed but then something else comes out and so on.
    Outlaw still has gouge and every spec will be effected by aoe cap so that balances out

    YES!!!

    No offense dude ... but ... Are you really a main Rogue or are you just another DH infiltrating here for fear of losing the "crown" ??

    Yes, dude, after being TOTALLY broken and super-nerfed since Legion the feeling that we, subtlety main-rogues, are definitely strong is all I want to see in Shadowlands.

    p.s:
    And yes, it seems that we are really VIABLE in all SL content ... but (unfortunately) we are not killing anyone in 1-2 seconds. Not even in the best Pikaboo videos does this rogue mult-glad champion manage to kill a noob in 1-2 seconds ...!
    So, plz, stop asking NERF for your own class (if you really are a main rogue).

    Well something has to give because Enveloping shadows as it currently stands is a major road block toward balancing Sub.

    They keep undermining everything they promise about giving us the old Subtlety playstyle back.

    OK it's a single charge baseline now, but the cooldown reduction is a bigger problem than charges ever were, and now the talent that adds the 2nd charge and increases CDR rate is the strongest in PvP by far, due to the baseline bonus to Shadow Dance damage which was never present before.

    I hate these shithead, useless developers so much. They are literal snakes. No matter what feedback we give, and what they promise to deliver, they always find a way to backdoor their shit playstyle in (see also: Find Weakness procs randomly from builders, which also undermines the entire Dance/FW window damage profile).

    They are snakes. They aren't actually this dumb. This shit is deliberate and intentional. Fucking snakes.

    Subtlety Rogue was an amazing, incredible, unique, and fun spec prior to Legion and BfA

    Right now subs can do more damage than the other 4 people combined in a dungeon. Safe to say they'll definitely get nerfed.

    i expect heavy nerfs incoming, if not i will definitely main a rog this expansion and warlock or spriest as second.

    Play the warlock or spriest. We have enough fotm players here already who don't truly care about the class.

    imagine being this defensive over your class

    you know more people playing rogue is good for you right?

    they can go and change the akari legendary without nerfing sub as it is.

    fotm players with no loyalty to rogue gameplay concepts have NOT been good for us

    they start to give feedback like "Blizzard please make the rotation more like a Demon Hunter. Please give us more cleave damage like I had on X,Y,Z class" and you get a homogenized mess... a class which only resembles a Rogue visually (not even that, sometimes) and has the same dumbed down gameplay as every other class.

    No, I don't consider it fine that I recognize nothing about the character that I loved for over a decade, that it has become infested with homogenized gameplay, that single target burst and control concepts that defined the class from the beginning have been deemphasized, that the Subtlety class fantasy has become a "nothing personnel kid" abomination, etc.

    It doesn't really matter what others play but i'd argue having more people play it makes it more likely to get nerfed/ messed around with by design by community. And it's not like the least played specs get ignored. Brew master and shadow priest seem to get love every expansion and the amount of people playing them is next to nothing compared to druid/hunter
