I know in PVE it is a dps loss, personally, good benefit raid wide.. but what is the translation over to pvp? As a combat rogue, most all damage is physical - if you want to "up" your sustained wouldn't a 12% armor debuff all the time be worth it? Especially when bursting with killing spree?
I've been perusing the 3v3 rankings for a bit, and I "thought" with new weapons rogue's were gonna scale hardcore - BUT, unless the top rogues aren't playing, I am not seeing this represent itself out on the rankings.
I see the 2200+ ladder dominated by locks/hunters/WARRIORS/mages.
1.) Is the idea that rogues scale HUGELY with weapons a bygone belief which is not applicable anymore, or other classes scale better?
2.) Has the nerf to Nerve Strike reduced rogues arena validity by a huge amount AND has caused a few classes to overly represent themselves on the ladders since their damage is no longer peeled like it once was by rogues?
Of course, with CC dominating WoW arena and dispells on a 8 second CD isn't helping us.
