In Topic: Where have all the rogues gone?

03 April 2014 - 01:39 PM

Rogues aren't fun anymore to play.    I know when the stars align i can put out ridiculous damage but when it comes to arenas in order to be successful as a rogue it demands so much synergy to be successful.  Its to the point that it's exhausting to get a win even vs the worst teams.

Also, I've been saying it for a long time but whenever you hit seasons where Hunters or Ferals are the most played class you'll see less and less of rogues playing.    I know when I enter an arena and I see a team make a gauntlet with flares and AoE spam in a tight corner to prevent the rogue opener I laugh.    It makes rogue openers inconsistent and its often unreliable to have a good opener strategy when there are so many targetable AoEs to put a rogue's team in combat.

Rogue gameplay is second nature for me and I'm sure its the same for plenty of other players who have been playing since BC/Wrath.  I am constantly asked how to do simple things like "how to open for good burst" and it leads me to believe that rogue gameplay, in order to be successful, needs to take advantage of every global properly otherwise they will fail immensely and thats too much of a learning curve for a new player. Regardless of how much damage rogues can potentially do I think they have the biggest gap between a new player and a skill capped player.    The reason there are so few rogues playing is because its exhausting and requires so much setup to win against teams that are hundreds of MMR lower than you compared to other classes. The gameplay is stale and easily countered.  The entirety of an arena match as a rogue is determined in the first 20 seconds of an arena and thats not fun / too hard to recover from a mistake.  I think the biggest reason rogue population is so low is because rogues look fun on paper/stream but they immediately turn a player away when they see how much setup it takes vs playing another class to actually be successful.

Everything about this post was how rogues felt when ferals were OP.

wat? 10 votes for druid and nothing else?

Not sure if srs. Is shaman/priest synergy THAT bad?

[edit] guys this is not Junkied Only, everyone can post, go

Sounds like you dont want druids to be the choice and if that is the case this poll is meaningless because you probably decided what you want before looking at the poll.

Druids have the best "synergy" with rogues purely because their CC doesnt DR the rogue's CC. From a twos perspective druids also give rogues symbiosis making them have a 30 second shieldwall vs Phys DPS.  Also, druids access to stealth allows rogues to take their time to get the opener they want since the state of the game has 300 targetable AoE's to knock a rogue or his partner out of stealth.

Are you sure you didnt scatter because your shaman was eating a lot of damage?

Seems like you were just peeling to live and you tried to make it seem like it had more of a thought process behind it
