Hello guys,
Just want to hear your thoughts about rogue spec in 5.4. Many people think that combat is getting OP as hell, but Subtlety is getting a buff aswell. So what you guys think will be more viable spec in PvP(especially Arena)?
Cheers.

You said especially arenas I'm guessing 3s so I would say:

Combat is really strong untill you reach about 2k after that it becomes too predictable and easy to counter for most teams. This specc is also stronger for 2s than 3s.

Assassination is the best after you reach 2k, the substained damage is huge making the pressure you can apply a great advantage, dispatch is hiting like a truck and is a functional execute once your target reaches 30%.

Sub is an all around great specc that delivers an high skill-cap so it is as good as your skill goes, with the buffs it will receive it will just be as competitive as the other two speccs but it is highly dependable on dance to apply great pressure as usual.

All scrubs play BM hunter and faceroll to 2.2k being carried by class and actually belive they are skilled.

Rogue has a million times higher skill cap compared to hunters, l2p.

Subtlety till the end. Its just the spec I love. Assassination might be better, but it doesnt suit my style.

Though being abit boring, I think assa will perform good in 3s next patch against most comps. Just because 2 other are so CD focused to do anything else but peel and cc for the rest of your team, while waiting cds to come up. And the sustained dmg is very high on assa.

What comes to combat, been trying it out on PTR and its a clumsy one trick pony(enha shaman comes to mind). With CD´s up you can literally kill someone in seconds in right situation. If you dont kill the target...well then you spend the next minutes running around doing mediocre dmg.

Sub would be great if it werent for that clunky energy regen shenanigan, that they cant just implement on the build, but going for that same old "hey heres a MAJOR glyph to fix !@#$ in pvp" bs.

Combat is not a PvP spec. It lacks too many of the vitals of rogue PvP.

It is a one trick pony. Once KS is on cooldown you can't really do any damage.

"Play a subtlety rogue! The positional requirements, low mobility, susceptibility to slows and total dependence on Ambush makes the class a blast to play even with high latency! "

Play Smooth...

...Play Subtlety

Sry man:P. Just had to.

lol are u a 10 yrs old kid or something, calling ppl idiots because they prefer a spec over another? sub is more annoying then hard, and assas has good sustained dmg plus great burst aswell its a very good spec, combat aswell, all 3 specs are viable for pvp if u know how to play
