Shadowstep back for sub according to mmo-champion along with some other changes:

Talents
  • Prey on the Weak Assassination, Subtlety: Enemies disabled with your Kidney Shot, Cheap Shot, Gouge, Sap or Sap take 10% increased damage from all sources. Outlaw: Enemies disabled with your Gouge, or Blind take 10% increased damage from all sources. Rogue - Level 75 Talent.
PvP Talents
  • Shiv (NYI) (New) Stabs the target with your off-hand, causing (10% of weapon damage) Nature damage, and applies a deadly neurotoxin. The neurotoxin causes any ability used to incur a 3 sec cooldown on that ability. Assassination Rogue - Tier 4 PvP Talent. Melee range. Instant. 45 sec cooldown.
Assassination & Subtlety
  • Shadowstep Step through the shadows to appear behind your target and gain 70% movement speed for 2 sec. Rogue - Assassination Subtlety Spec. 25 yd range. Instant.
Subtlety
  • Nightblade (Assassination) Finishing move that infects the target with shadowy energy, dealing Shadow damage over time and reducing movement speed by 50%.causing attacks against the target to reduce movement speed by 50% for 8 sec.
  • Nightblade (Outlaw, Subtlety) Finishing move that infects the target with shadowy energy, dealing Shadow damage over time and reducing movement speed by 50%.causing attacks against the target to reduce movement speed by 50% for 8 sec.
  • Shadow Dance Your finishing moves have a 20% chance per combo point to activate Stealth. For 3 sec, this Stealth Shadow Dance for 3 sec. Shadow Dance allows access to all Stealth-based abilities, but will not break when you autoattack or take damage. When this effect occurs, a Shadow Decoy will appear nearby, confusing your enemies. Rogue - Subtlety Spec. Rogue - Subtlety Spec.



Shadowstep being in the mix is wonderful

I love shadowdance right now but I'll say this---having it as a passive makes things feel much more like in TBC/Wrath where every kidney shot mattered. Rather than "we're going to burst every one minute, get your shit ready", every Kidney Shot can be a real kill opportunity.

If that design philosophy is followed everywhere regarding PVP, and maybe now the new cooldown mechanic for sub will be the return of shadow blades... I think that's actually a really good thing. I miss kills happening mid game because of good... idk mix-up play? There used to be something said for being able to do damage when your cooldowns WEREN'T up, this implementation of shadow dance supports that. I'm curious, at least

The only possible positive I can bring out of this is that the game needs massive changes right now, and while I hate them, they are massive changes

Great post moran.

Should've linked the video from WOTLK where Mike is losing to Xmo tho.

you goddamn br

edit: also good post mr. moran (or shutup moran, not sure which)

lolflay's point about something that "works for you and your team" hits home. I remember S7/8 the different styles between 4-5 RMPs that were up on ladder, I remember our Rogue/Enh/Rdruid team having different strats and different targets depending on whose RMP we were playing against because they could play the same comp that differently (even with same spec!).
