Yes, the previously mentioned nerfs on the rogues will also be implemented.

These changes that you see today, which are 4%, 3% and 4% nerfs are on top of the previous nerfs.
What happend to Dk's? they seem have been nerfed alot.I play assassination rogue and its a bit of extreme damage that im dealing. I hope the pvp in BFA gets balanced
Feral needs a damage decreasing for sure.

+

Why not increase either the healing or dmg of havoc dh a lil bit since it got a huge nerf.
Can't heal enough and hit hard anymore.

Unholy is OP.
Please fix the ww monks, it was the class i wanted to play in BFA!
Are you serious? Leave rogues the F alone! Been the suppressed nephew of melee dps throughout Legion, until the Antorus changes, which put them in the top again(where they belong since the only they bring utility wise is some stun dps increase and personal survivability). Demon Hunters are basically OP rogues and have better movement and AOE damage.

Stohp the stomp :(
Feels like no change for rogues went live, neither the 4% nerf nor the old (last week) nerfs
The last week nerfs was for beta-server. I dont know how this is OK to not fixing things like that faster. Whole pre-patch month was !@#$.
Nerf DKs more, leave rogues/rets unchanged, make me cancel my sub
Why are demon hunters not on this list? Please tell us you are doing something about them (ability depth/talent and buff wise).

Been in BG lately...? :S Rogues are insane against almost all classes atm. DHs are nowhere near close. It's rogue/warrior/hunter time.
Please Fix DHs damage we only deal decent pvp damage using "Rain From Above" :/

Absolutely not. For example, I can not kill a priest alone(bg/). Also feels like paper in a clash with e.g. assa(especially),other rogues or classes.
Unh was good before nerfed. Ofc in PVP situation.
In PVE still very nice.
