    Because when a rogue builds up combo points on one target and uses them to blow up another target that's bad. When a ret does it, it's working as intended.

    Yes. Exactly. The Paladin is designed around doing that and the rogue isn't.

    Why is this so hard to understand?

    It's not a bug, the rogue is designed to not be able to do this. That's the INTENT.

    About the model update discussion:

    I'm actually not very optimistic about their remodelling of the original 8. I'm quite certain they'll do it at some point, but I just have a sinking feeling that they're not going to see the amount of love that Goblins and Worgen are. Kind of like the starter areas. They're redoing them all, but the Goblin and Worgen areas are completely head and shoulders above any of the other revamped starting areas. The only one that can even compare are the new Echo Isles, but that's only 1-5.

    I don't imagine too much of a difference to come about when they get around to remodeling the original 8 races. But it's a bone thrown out.

    As for the zones themselves, that's the sort of thing that'll have to remain a dream. Every zone in the vanilla game could benefit tremendously from the WotLK / Cata era graphics and art work they're dishing out.

    Edit - Really, the races that'll benefit most from the remodeling will be trolls, the undead, and maybe night elves.

    I don't know what I hate more: healing as a non-ICC lvl 80 or tanking as a non-ICC lvl 80. Or perhaps it's that I hate the way the Dungeon Finding system is set up in that it rewards people (with speedier ques and more gold) who go the random route - and then swiftly punishes them by placing them with over geared people who expect you to be on their level.

    I was in a Pit of Saron group with a 4K Death Knight who couldn't hold aggro to save her life. She drops group after Garfrost, and I proceed to switch to tank spec - my gear isn't "great", but I'm not rocking all blues either. Had 63% damage reduction, 512 defense and about 28K health buffed, so I'm thinking - "Might be a bit of a workout, but it beats waiting a half hour for another tank to show up." Healer promptly says: "No you NEED at LEAST 4K to tank Pit of Saron." I say, we can give it a shot and see what happens, or we can wait." His response - we wait. I laughed and asked if I could be kicked from the group as I had no intention of staying and waiting around for a tank to show up, after waiting in que already for about a half hour.

    This was Normal Pit by the way to put this in context.

    This has more to do with GearScore being the burning spawn of satan, than the actual dungeon finder. The dungeon finder doesn't sit and try and place you with people with higher gear score.

    Also, you can get well over 4K GS without a single piece of ICC gear. Well over.

    Has anyone bothered to point out yet that rogues are getting an ability that lets them transfer combo points in Cata?

    Because that would make this whole argument very silly.

    I haven't gotten any ICC loot, and my shaman is over 4K and will heal a heroic all day and night. That wasn't the problem. The problem was this dummy thinking you need 4K to tank Pit of Saron Normal - which might be the easiest, most rewardingest instance in Wrath - which I thought was just ludicrous. If I had 4K's worth of gear (that was non-PvP), why in gods name would I be slumming it in a normal dungeon? I thought to ask that, but everytime I've had a conversation that relies on an understanding of GearScores specious nature - it turns into a "Dude just get epics," conversation or "Youre a faggy healer/tank/dpser."

    I lied about my gearscore and knowing the content to get into an ICC PUG that was already in progress and at Saurfang, claimed to have 5k+ like he was asking and to have done all of the fights before

    checked wowhead while we were buffing, shot lightning at Blood Beasts and Saurfang and never got hit once while kiting and was top DPS (6100) ... on my 4600gs Elemental Shaman, while we had lots of 5800gs+ people doing nothing more than wailing on the boss ...

    we finally down him on the second try (hit the Enrage the first time, derp), and I'm promptly kicked when someone hovers their mouse over me and says "uhh the Shaman only has 4600 gearscore"

    I think just sub, but the conversation is silly either way.

    The ability is in the subtlety tree (not that differentiating between rogue skill trees really means anything) but as far as I know, it's a base skill, not talented. I wouldn't be surprised if there were subtlety talents to improve it, though.

    And no one is really sure how redirect works exactly, since they've yet to make it not totally broken. They've said you'll be able to use it on adds postmortem, which is, transfer the points after the previous target has died. Currently, though, either you've got a fraction of a second to make the switch, or the ability just doesn't work outright.

    normal citizens who are potentially infected. Or who are infected-supporters. If I recall the original mission correctly, you attack people's homes and then kill them as they leave (in peasant form). Not all of them are zombies.

    Ideally you actually want to kill them before they become Zombies because while they are peasants they are weaker and don't fight back.

    No, but I do lose interest in questing fucking fast when everything is buried behind yet another barrage of boring kill/gather/fly all around quests. Or you're doing some quest line then suddenly it's a group quest and you spend half an hour spamming LFG for it to the wind with no responses because no one else is on this precise step of quest chain #374. I did some shit in Icecrown then got bored as hell, so I stopped. And then I didn't feel compelled to do that same shit on my other half a dozen or so characters after they hit 80.

    Gears score is awful... got kicked out of a pug ICC group for only having 4850, and the guy does "only 5k+." I was the first person in his 10 man raid too. Unfortunatel, i pretty much have the best gear i can get besides in ToC or ICC, so if i gain gear score i would lose actual dps(I.E. getting hit rating trinkets instead of my current ones that are only ~170 GS). So i am kind of stuck content wise because nobody looks beyond that.
    I used to not understand why people hated gearscore so much, but now i understand. If i uninstall will it also remove my cache of it or will others still see my old gearscore that hasn't been refreshed recently?
