Subtlety rogue lost into a void of perplexity.
Hello rogue friends, So I'm kinda new to this whole Wow things and I'm a bit lost at the moment: I've reached ilvl835 as a Sub rogue just now and unlocked my 3rd weap slot. And I thought myself "let's try mythic now wuhu!". So far it's been an hour full of declined application using the premade group thingy. I've now done my research and I understand that there's an overwhelming number of melee dps in the game at the moment, sub rogue not being the best melee dps among them that would makes me be invited in any group, and I don't see myself playing outlaw at all. On some threads people advised others to makes their own groups, but as a new player I really don't feel comfortable leading/gathering a mythic group. So my question is, what should I do now ?? It seems to me like the only thing I can do to improve my gear is farming Obliterum, which other players farm 10times faster with AoE. Or running heroic dungeon hoping for titanforged loot? Could pray for some mythic WQ too, but that not the point I guess. I'm also interested on joining a guild that would do some mythic run, WQ, chill heroic runs and some others wow activities, but after some research on the interwebs I can't find anything other than hardcore guild that require 4 days/week, able to change to any spec and have a reroll available. I don't really know where to look so I'm probably not doing my research efficiently on that. Overall I'm getting a little bit frustrated, and I'm starting to regret leveling my rogue instead of my other dps class, which is ranged. I'm even thinking about using the free lvl100 to play as a random tank, games feels so easy for them (I don't really know it's just my newbie perception of it). But I really like sub rogue and I've spent much time and effort into mine already, I would like to be able to play through the content with mine . So is there any solution or thing I'm doing wrong about my whole approach of the game ? Am I missing something ?? Please send help. Best regards.4
Let's talk Sub/Mut AoE capabilities.
On their own, both Assassination and Subtlety struggle to keep up with other DPS classes in AoE situations to the point where some people have even experienced getting kicked from mythic groups for not playing Outlaw. And again, Outlaw, on it's own i'm completely fine with it, not my cup of tea, but many people seem to be enjoying it. Compared to Outlaw though, Sub/Mut either falls behind or is comparable in single target situations, and falls really far behind in AoE situations. Now i enjoy playing Assassination and would like to keep doing that without being yelled at by group members or being bullied into playing Outlaw. I really hope Blizzard refines the AoE capabilities of Sub/Mut, not only are they extremely sub-par, they're also a hell of a lot harder to execute than for other classes. Either increasing single target damage to make up for the horrible AoE (worst solution) or re-balancing how we do AoE damage (best solution) is something i hope to see from Uncle Blizz in the near future.2
What happened to blade flurry today? bug?
So I have been playing outlaw since pre patch release and I always used blade flurry by activating it, and deactivating it with the same button, without any macro. Basically press blade flurry = gain buff, press it again = remove buff. Untill today that I noticed, after playing all morning before posting here, that 80% of the times it isn't removed anymore by pressing the key again. I would think it's a bug since sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, also because i never had any problems using it without any macro. Has anyone else noticed this ?5
Rogues need nerfs in all departments
So in the off-chance that a blizzard Developer might drop in here and browse the EU forum out of boredom, I want to give my feedback. Currently rogues of all specs are able to solo people, even healers, 100-0 in a couple of seconds true vanilla style, while being nearly invincible themselves. If you happen to be a tank, you might survive for a while, but that doesn't mean you're gonna win. The dps is out of this world and needs to be scaled back drastically. On the other Hand, they are FAR to easy to play for the level of reward they get in return. This is out of all proportions, considering the state of other classes at the moment. I'm pretty sure there will be alot of tuning and nerfs in the weeks to come but still, rogues need nerfs BADLY in all aspects, damage, survivability and cc. Now come to defend your broken state and let the downvotes begin, the more the better, it might attract attention. This is purely directed at blizzard so I will neither return nor reply in this thread. So don't waste your energy on insults. <311
Wrong stats from every source.
Hello everyone. I need help to answer a question for me, last few days i've been farming heroics, world quests and mythics. As a sub rogue i'm after gear with mastery/versa, but every single drop gives med crit or crit/haste. Is it totally random what gear you get, or does it have to do with my loot specialization? I've seen many rogues with alot of mastery gear, but i seem to only find crit gear. Is there anything i can do about it? Or is it just random? Thanks in advance.1
