  • Preparation is now a baseline ability learned at level 68.
  • Versatility has been removed.
  • New Level 90 Talent: Marked for Death
    • Marks a target and instantly generates 5 combo points. When that target dies, Marked for Death's cooldown is reset. This talent has a 1 minute cooldown.
  • New Level 60 Talent: Cloak and Dagger
  • Burst of Speed now costs 30 Energy (was 50 Energy), can be used in Stealth, and always grants increased movement speed in addition to breaking snare effects, but no longer breaks root effects.
  • Shuriken Toss now causes the Rogue to Throw shuriken instead of autoattacking for 10 seconds after Shuriken Toss is used.
  • Deadly Throw can now interrupt spellcasting when used at 3, 4, and 5 combo points, and upon interrupt prevents any spell in that school from being cast for 4, 5 and 6 seconds respectively (was 5 combo points and 6 seconds).
  • Nerve Strike now reduces the effectiveness of healing provided by the target by 25%.
  • Shadow Focus now reduces ability energy costs by 75% while stealthed (was 100%).
  • PvP set bonuses have been changed:
    • Vigor is now the 4 piece set bonus and increases maximum energy by 50 (was 10).
    • Deadly Brew is now the 2 piece set bonus, and its effects remain unchanged.
  • Combat
  • Subtlety
    • Sanguinary Vein now increases the damage the target takes by 20% (was 16%).

A bit overkill, if this goes through I might have to wipe the dust off on my rogue.
Those changes are freakin huge... Totatlly new playstyle imo. Mobility just rocketed I would say.

BTW. These are fun as well: :D

  • Shockwave now has a 40 second cooldown (was 20 seconds), striking 3 or more targets will reduce its cooldown by 20 seconds.
  • Second Wind now causes a Warrior that has been reduced to 35% health or lower to regenerate 2% of their health per second (was 3%), and now generates 15 Rage over 10 seconds (was 20 Rage).

The amount of changes rogues are receiving and how big they are is reaaaaaaaaaaaaaally ridiculous. They really aren't even bad right now, other stuff just needed some nerfs. This is what a whole lot of people crying gets you I guess.

Don't know how these buffs + other class nerfs will make rogues, but I'm guessing that they'll probably be extremely good/ridiculous again.

Oh yeah, I don't know if anyone else noticed, but apparently versatility is just baseline now.

I'm worried that the burst from rogues will become to good especially combined another burst class.

I'm pretty sure it's only removed not made baseline.

As in redirect is still a 1minute CD and marked for death is it's replacement.

Idk how I feel about the cloak and dagger and dance. I wouldn't be happy without the option of being able step defensively, but optionwise the datamined hit and run looked more fun. Though, I wouldn't use it or the new talent though.

I'm expecting a prey on the weak nerf in the next 2months and maybe a shadow blades nerf the season after with gear scaling.
