Pretty good video; he also has another out that I haven't checked out yet, but am planning to download and watch tonight.

He really shows the strength of rocket jump, which I think is actually a really strong racial for rogues (since we do very well against locks, but have trouble against mages in closing the gap).

Also some nifty uses of Smoke Bomb and Combat Readiness.

I dislike that he was using Hemo (and obviously Sanguinary Vein) glyphed, but that's probably going to be my weird choice of spec in Cata vs other rogues.

I'd give it a solid 8.5/10. I would have given it a 9 if his focus frame wasn't in the middle of the screen blocking most of the view.

Second movie is pretty good too, and it's all arenas. He plays feral/rogue in addition to mage/rogue, rogue/rogue, priest/rogue and maybe one or two others.

I quite like it, and it's firmed up my choice of race changing to goblin for Cata.

Looks pretty cool. Might faction change to goblin, depending on what happens - rocket belt seems stupidly overpowered in that video (dodging a charge and getting the stun out of the warrior's range much?), which makes me suspect it'll get nerfed and Goblins will end up being just another fotm.

The whole hit point vs damage ratio seems pretty decent as well - I might end up liking Cata PvP, if I ever get around to it. It'll be some job getting back on the saddle for my rogue though =(

Really doubt it. It's the only thing that is really advantageous about being a goblin. You're not going to be dodging charges and intercepts in arenas, hence it'll only be a distance closer.

Also, you have to time it within half a second (maybe a tenth of a second) for it to work. He slowed it down in the video to make it seem like it's easy, but it should be about the same as vanishing a Death Coil/Blind.

It isn't that hard to do 1v1 or for a really experienced PvPer, but for anyone else? Good luck.
