    Rogue streamers & blogs

    As the title says, I'm looking for up-to-date blogs and decent informative rogue streamers.
    Any info is more than welcome!

    (already know about rogue discord, ravenhold or any other stickied sites)

    There's a channel for this on the Rogue Discord

    Anyway are you looking for information about PvP or PvE? Retail or Classic?
    Subtlety Rogue was an amazing, incredible, unique, and fun spec prior to Legion and BfA

    Hey Shoe,

    Both aspects really, but only retail.

    I checked on the discord but most live streamers purely focus on m+ content only, from what I've seen so far that is.

    Cheers!

    Shadownox WoW from YT is a nice guy. He has plenty of videos about Arena. A few days ago I saw his video about SL changes and it's great(really well summarized).

    There are a few Rogues who get R1 titles season after season after season, every single expansion, that also stream pretty consistently on Twitch:

    https://www.twitch.tv/pikabooirl
    https://www.twitch.tv/nahj
    https://www.twitch.tv/whaazz
    https://www.twitch.tv/praiibg

    Of that group I find Nahj to be the most consistently analytical and educational, while Pika has a pretty entertaining stream generally but still offers good commentary, and I haven't watched Whaazz or Praii in a long time and couldn't really say.

    With that said, those are the best Rogues in the world who have over a dozen R1 titles each. You can find other streamers and youtubers as well who don't have quite the same consistent record of world class success, but still offer very high level gameplay and informative commentary.

    Sometimes other multi-R1 players like Xaryu or Snutz will dabble in Rogue a bit even though it's not their main class, and you can pick up some things from watching them as well. Really depending at the level you are playing and what are your goals in PvP, you can watch just about any high level PvP streamer regardless of the class and learn useful things because at higher levels, knowing other classes in order to predict exactly what they will do and when is just as important as knowing your own.

    Honestly, any duelist+ level Rogue pretty much knows how to execute their rotation, the difference is that at the highest level players are a little more consistent at pushing their buttons perfectly without wasting any resources but you don't have to be in the top 0.1% to know what to do "on paper", the difference is executing it consistently under pressure. And of course the bigger difference is like I said being able to read what your opponent is doing, quickly process all the information you are taking in, and predict what they are about to do. Finally, effective communication is a big skill... For example when you are "carrying" less experienced players you don't want to just describe what you are seeing you need to tell them what to do so that they aren't slowed down too much from having to think about it. On the other hand when top players are playing together it's enough to say "his trinket is coming up soon" or "he's coming in to fear you" and everyone already knows what is their plan to deal with that.
