Please look past the temporary benefits of FoK spam spec this can only end up badly for all rogues. :(

Atleast put two points into Improved Sinister Strike so it looks like you are spamming something other than FoK.


Knowing BLizzard in their infinite wisdom they will most likely not use common sense and destroy the interrupt talent and FoK damage in general, looking past the real problem. This will make a KS spec even more unpopular than it already is. Hell, they might even nerf deadly brew while they are at it.


Please learn from the past and acknowledge that Blizzard has used misguided judgment in the past to change or completely remove talents. I don't want to see this happen again.

If you like FoK apply poisons and interrupting at least play Killing Spree. Blizzard will have a more difficult time nerfing an already underused spec than something built around pressing one button. Please for God's sake don't run around in 5s and hit FoK repeatedly like a fool with 33.38

This is so true. When people were spamming shiv to dps i was just thinking how bad this is gonna turn out overall for rogues.

With this talent though, if it needs a nerf it'll be nerfed either now or when combat becomes 'viable' and people FoK spamming won't change that very much. Its just a mindless spec for people who want to faceroll at the moment :/

It's good vs. bad teams that clump, but pretty poor vs. good 5v5s.

In 3v3 it only works with a DK (so he can death grip / chains them on top of the fok rogue).

They knew exactly what was up the moment they decided to make FoK have an interrupt in deep combat. It forces you to play without combo points and retards the utility of a rogues full potential.

I dont think they care in the slightest.

If there are rogues out there that wanna spam 50 energy per interrupt, while simultaneously never be able to use a finishing move, let them do it.

you're an idiot, that talent was put in the game when fok had a 10 second cooldown, then they removed the cooldown for pve reasons and forgot about the talent because blizzard is full of half assed mouthbreathers instead of real programmers

it definitely isn't intended

Last blue post claimed that FoK interrupt might be abit annoying, but it isn't something they consider OP. only a small percent of the rogues are FoK, and it isn't like rogues are having a dominating setup except RMP... unlike DKs.

FoK is wired, but there are far more stupid things.. Like Chains of ice and the amazing burst some classes have. Frost DKs, Destro Locks, Elemental Shamans etc.

My 2v2 partner from S5 plays destro warlock, elemental shaman priest, with an 88 wins - 4 loses score last i checked around 2900 MMR. "Look a warrior on 25.000 hp >BAMM CRITS< Dead warrior.

Your logic is that a rogue should be able to kill a healer as well is beyond retarded. If that was the case, there wouldn't be a need to bring a healer.

I specced it today after someone made a thread here on AJ about it, i got the glyphs, the correct spec, took on the approriate weapons and went into a bg.

No healer stood a chance vs AR + FoK. It amused me quite alot and therefor i convinced another rogue mate to try it aswel, at which point we started doing av.

I swear to god i'm happy i waesent the hordes trying to attack balinda, we would both aoe about 5 players down every time we blew AR.

This spec needs some serious nerfing, we met someone running with a FoK rogue at 2.3k MMR, the rogue had some blues and did nothing but spam FoK, their getting gladiator, FML.

To above poster, 2300 isn't even close to glad.

But back on topic, ya the FoK build is for retards and i'm glad it isn't having much success. Disappointing when builds like that do good.

FoK rogues are generally easy to control as long as you don't get stuck in a tight spot w/ them. The damage is a little out of control and the interupt is lame, but overall if you're aware it's not that bad.
