You can come here to complain about dying in stunlock when you're 80 if you like. I'm pretty sure you;re entitled to as an ex rogue.

I laugh really hard at rogues, TBH. They're not a challenge. Plate + IBF + Death Grip = massive lulz to be had.

Well first night into Naxx 25 and I don't feel so depressed about Rogues anymore.

Downed all of Spider and Plague wings as well as Patchwerk one shotted. I was 9th DPS overall and was usually 7th or better on bosses. Pulled around 2k average, peaked at 3.1k on Loatheb though that doesn't really count.

Kidna annoyed that our hunter was doing 1k DPS more than me the entire time though...well Hunter and Unholy DK. But meh, I was fearing I would be lowest DPS or something so I see it wasn't as bad as I thought.

Managed to snag two upgrades, the Strong-Handed Ring and the Silent Crusader which were both large upgrades for me. Blade of Infamy->Silent Crusader should boost my DPS a good bit and the ring is a great upgrade over Ring of Lethality.

We'll see how it goes in the near future but at least for tonight I'm not as worried.

Is anyone else.... Disappointed to see a sub spec on top of dps?


I'm doing heroics now, and I have to wonder if the spec is worth trying in 5 man. My gut says no, but I'm not against hearing what others have to say.

Just a tip: it's bugged atm so that you get HAT twice per crit if there are two rogues in the group, so you'll want as many rogues (HAT specced) as possible in each group, and other classes that crit a lot in the other slots.

First 1-night clear of Naxx25 which, we've decided, is srs bzns. All told, about 3.3 hours with some dilly-dallying here and there. Scored some new achievements as well: Timer on Maexxna and didn't bother MC'ing the adds for Faerlina :D

Took 5th DPS overall in Naxx, not including Patchwerk where I got Hatefuled for 53k in the first 5 seconds.

I was at 2.2k DPS+ the entire time and was top 5 on pretty much every boss. So I'm feeling pretty good right now.

Jumped into my first heroics tonight (hit 80 yesterday) and was pretty pleased at the end. In one heroic Gundrak run, I picked up a Helm of Cheated Fate, a pair of Gorloc Muddy Footwraps, and a Fist of the Deity (which looks just like the bladed tonfa that the wind-up chap used in Hellboy). I also hit honored with the Kirin Tor, so I grabbed a Lightblade Rivener as well.

I'm finally comfortable with the weapons I'll be taking into Naxx. Time to grind out some badges and nab some more **** gear.

did my first Nax run, 10man. Cleared 2 Wings only. I was the only rogue and this happened:

Got Knife of Incision, Omen of Ruin, Leggings of Discord and Boots of the Worshiper off the bosses and trash in the first 1 hour :))
DPS 1900 on average, 2.1-2.2 on bosses , 2.5 patch :)
Stayed first or second(by a 1% behind) on all bosses and third in overall.
I feel awesome :)))
//My hit is at 135 now lol, wonder when i get to 325, whats my dps gonna be :)

did our guild first 10 man naxx last night after forcing every one to get gear from heroics and 80's.. Went really well for a group of casual friends. 3/3 spider 2/3 plague 1/4 construct. in like 4 hours? yeah we stopped to take a break and Heigan kinda frustrated us. No drops for me but I did hit 3300 dps on patchwork, which was a really cool return on heroic grinding and research to get my dps top notch. Gonna go at EOE and OS tonight, then clear up the rest of the plague and construct quarter. I think we are staying away from military until every one is confident on their gear. We had some people not breaking 1200, which was quiet annoying. I also went combat briefly with a fiest of the deity, and a paper cutter, went back to mutilate. The loss of DPS just to get a little more AOE was not worth it for the ~300 loss in dps.

Went back to my 64 rogue after abandoning it. I can't believe all the changes. I happily freed several slots up in my inventory from poison mats. I was stoked about the free respec but I'm pretty sure I wasted that on a bad idea. I can't seem to completely remember how to be a rogue though. I'm down to only one add-on and everything looks different. It took me almost a week to remember to pickpocket. I'm a big ball of panic-induced button-mashing at the moment. People ask if I want to group for quests and I say no because I'm afraid they're going to say "excuse me, wtf r u doing?"

But dangit, I missed roguery so much. I'm so glad to be back. :)
#1125 Dec 26 2008 at 12:39 AM Rating: Decent
Since the slave-drivers at work decided to give us some time off, I finally hit 80 tonight. I hadn't had a day off since Thanksgiving ;). Makes for poor leveling.

So now its heroic time.

Half accomplishment, half schadenfreude: Farming LK raid content and, dunno, kinda whatever about it. Aside from raiding achievements, my rogue is just waiting for content patch while I level my DK.

On a brighter note: Merrymaker Therion! 2 holidays down, 5 to go on the road to my proto-drake! =)

Rofl, grats bro.

On another note, I got carried in a heroic naxx guild run(still wearing 2 70 epics). I picked up best in slot pokey thing :)

Which, tbh is rather comical, seeing as I have half heroic gear, 2 peices of 70 epics, boots off of loatheb and my t7.5 chest, lol.

Averaged 2480 on bosses last night in Naxx, overall did about 1800-1900. Pretty happy about that considering I only have 3 epics on me.

Here's what's gross... I did 2480 and was DEAD LAST in dps in nearly all boss fights. I'm hitting the wall until I fill the slots up with more/better pretty purple items.

Still, being dead last at 2480 is hilarious to me... I'm so sick of DK's and Warrs.

I recently transferred over to Proudmoore(Yay, bugging Therion) from Mannoroth because of server lag and rogues aren't really needed there. I found a great guild that has very few rogues, and today we ran Vault and I got these bad boys. Finally popped my WoTLK virginity.

Not sure of you can call this an accomplishment, but we buffed our rating up to 1760...

then dropped back down to 1680 -.-

We faced the same hunter/shaman team 4 times in a row, even though we actually managed to beat them once; the shaman barely dies and the hunter pumps out as much DPS as double DPS teams while mana draining my healadin partner. Sick =/ Once we fell back to 1700 we got back into the mage/ret bracket where the DPS dish out 25K damage in 2 seconds and a match is more based on luck than anything else.

At least we got the 'Just the two of us' achievement though.

Hit 2183 last night. Sadly that was my dps on a 25-man Vault run, not an Arena rating. I was 3rd on the dps chart and we wiped first time around - the big guy enraged because the DPS was too slow (actually too many died). Another factor was having some stupid paladin insisting on giving Blessing of Wisdom to rogues and DKs instead of Might. I guess that's what you get for PUGging raids.

Second time, we got him and I doubled my Emblem of Valor collection to four. No drops for me but it was good to see a boss go down.

Roll on my guild's first Naxx raid (11th January).

Cool, I actually cleared the spider wing + Noth in PvP spec and gear. Naxx is seriously easy, apperantly. Shamefully the 1.80 speed dagger I really needed didn't drop, so it was more a for the lols run eventually.

picking up my Darkmoon Card Greatness tonight. And my guild is tackling Kel as well tonight. We cleared up to him yesterday, Sapph was our biggest problem but went down after a few attempts. I have got T7 25 gloves out of VOA. And T7.10 legs off Thad. Currently sitting at 3/5 of T7. Still waiting on Omen to drop. These paper cutters are the only non epic items I have.
Rocking a steady 2500dps on most fights, hitting 3k with the right group set up. Feelin pretty good about the rogue right now. Also the spread sheet says Anarchy will be a dps upgrade. but the 1.8 speed scares me for PVE purposes. I guess the DPS + on the dagger makes up for the 1.8 speed.

Picked up these two beauties in the past two nights in Naxxramas. Can't wait to try them out fully raid buffed. We also cleared all the way to Kel'Thuzad, but an unlucky MC got both of our off-tanks, so adds killed the healers and we wiped at 5%. Smiley: mad

In other news, I finally replaced my last piece of level 70 legacy gear. In a related note, excluding the 25-badge reward, the availability of rings for raiding is depressingly dismal.
