    man if you're talking about the raiding change it has been a long time coming

    I must have shit out at least 500g in mana pots for al'ar this summer

    goddamn

    Yeah, but srsly. Stopping raiding because of a lack of focus? How is that meant to improve focus? Especially since there's been progress lately, and entire new farmable instance to get t5 equivalent gear to help along?

    Rabble rabble rabble.

    Yes. Well, both my G&T days and my Dark Iron days were in the long long ago. Small internet world though, huh?

    So I did heroic BF last night and no one in the group had done it before.

    We got raped by the felguards. One just flexed its muscles at me and I dropped dead.

    But we got our shit together and just never let them hit. Fun stuff!

    The epic shoulders dropped too. It's a shame they're such crap, but I got a void crystal out of it. So that's good.

    Yeah that wouldn't work on my Rogue, like, at all.

    Alternatively, I've been described by my own teammates as "the type of fucker I hate most".

    To paint a picture, I'm patient enough that I'll stealth across an entire BG field. I don't have anything improving my movement speed aside from a boot enchant. I'm perfectly happy letting the rest of the team screw around, kill people and whatnot (don't get me wrong, I'll hop into a fray along with them), but I'll wait. And wait. Like a hunter in a hide, I wait to strike. Flag carriers, people at low health, healers in back, death (or stunlocking while the team converges upon me) await them all.

    A lot of rogues (possibly better ones than I) will do the whole "run/ride around, dismount->stealth->engage" bit.

    But with me on the field? I could be anywhere. I'll disappear for minutes at a time, and if I find you, you most likely won't see it coming.

    Have I mentioned lately that back when AV first started, during lengthy stalemates I'd begin conducting psychological warfare against the Horde?

    Good times.

    I'm pretty sure I've addressed this at length in the past, but the short answer is "Yes".

    The standing of DPS warriors has improved greatly in the past year, but Rogues have always been as they are today; overpopulated and underappreciated.

    Yeah and I don't see that perspective changing anytime soon. Even though Rogues have been given some amazing utility to provide groups, there will always be a negative stigma associated with the class. You see the same thing with Ret Paladins.

    The funny thing that kind of baffles me is that there are more Hunters and Warriors than there are Rogues these days, yet neither of those classes carry the negative connotation that the Rogue class does. O_o

    "Huntard". It's there, but getting some hefty buffs recently oughta help the public's perception, even if it's just the retards who clamour over who the FOTM build/class is. "OMG Hunters are OP! ... let's get more of them onboard. Is 3 enough for a 5 man?"

    Also, reputation from pvp servers, particularly pre-TBC, and especially in the first 6-12 months, when a rogue with a decent weapon or two scaled remarkably well, and ate a lot of classes alive.

    There's a reason we were among the last (tied with Shaman actually, but as Alliance, I can't really speak to them directly) of the classes to be reviewed, and were in fact directly or indirectly nerfed a number of times in the year after release. Blizzard stated several times that they felt we were among the most well tuned classes compared to what they wanted, and mostly just had to correct things here and there when gear, itemization or something else would begin to break us out of that mould.

    Heh this reminds me of how I still have one or two bags floating around on alts made by JAEF's warlock from the first week or two of Emerald Dream. It'd be amusing if crafted stuff had a date attached too.

    I also still have the little six-slot Kodo Hide Bag my druid made. I felt so cool back then, making my own BAG.

    It mostly involved sapping (I had imp sap at this point before I started spec'ing purely for raid dps) people and leaving them alone. Then wandering off, and then coming back and sapping them again, or someone else.

    I'd see priests, warlocks and mages blow entire mana bars aoe'ing all over while trying to find me. Getting warriors who weren't in Berzerker stance? Glorious. Using perception or an innately higher stealth level to nab other rogues? Nearly climax inducing. I wouldn't even bother trying to kill them, and given that most of this activity was often "behind enemy lines", attacking probably would've just led to my death.

    But from what I could garner from my opposition, it was really, really annoying.

    On the other hand, some of my favourite moments in pvp were when we'd settle on an unspoken truce with some individuals or groups.

    Last week, my guild crew got into a WSG that happened to contain some horde from the server. One of them is a re-roll'd mage of someone who has a 70 priest and paladin, and used to belong to said guild. She (according to what I've been told) was a horrific bitch in regards to one of the other wsg participants joining the guild, and nearly had him blocked from joining for no reason anyone ever found out (also, upon his joining, she /gquit and rerolled, taking a significant investment of gear with her). So when we were up to 2/0 in flag caps, we decided to just start killing her and her alone. Other Horde that attacked died as well, but we had a troll priest dancing in the graveyard (we danced with her) and an undead priest that'd go grab our flag, 'walk' back along the field, and then drop it in front of one of our members, and then 'walk' back to the flagroom. We left him alone too.

    Her, we murdered mercilessly for a good 10 or 20 minutes.

    On a more peaceful note, I've also found a Tauren druid stealthed up in one of the FW base towers, minding his own business while the alliance group pillaged and engaged the warmasters (this was in, oh, 2006). Rather than fighting him, he, my nelf hunter, and a couple other alliance just kind of sat down and watched the carnage and chaos below. It was kind of zen. We'd swap jokes, emotes and just kinda hung out.

    If I get into an AB where the alliance is being herded into their last GY and a 5-cap is imenent (that simply can NOT be spelt correctly), I'll often sneak past, wander off to the farm, and dance with the person there. Ocassionally they want to fight, and that's fine by me. If they win, it's a little honour, which the poor sap guarding the stables/farm usually misses out on. If not, meh, 1 kill for me. But often it's the same deal, as we'll just hang out, emote and have fun. Sometimes I'll open with a sap, and then punch them for 20 or 50 damage to break them out of it, and unstealthing me, and see if they're a good sport about it.

    I remember doing something like this back when South Shore and Tarren Mill were the "only" PvP. I remember being bored with the same ol' same ol' and setting up a camp fire in that ruined tower. First it was just myself and another alliance bullshitting around, then we had a couple of other alliance and a few random horde. All just sitting by the fire, or doing /silly etc.

    Good times.

    Back when I played Alliance, there was a time in AV where Horde always defended Drek. Almost every single game they would stop our entire offensive push there, which would in turn lead to a turtle. I was so tired of it, that one time I stealthed up there.

    A bunch of Horde were standing on those spikes sticking out from the ground over the hill in front of Drek's room. So I stealth onto an unoccupied spike, unstealth and start dancing with them.

    There was a good 20 Horde there, and instead of the instant death, they all started dancing with me. One Horde attacked me and was berated by everyone else (I Have no idea what they were saying but there were yells, and the guy stopped attacking me), this lasted for a good 10 or 15 minutes. Eventually more Alliance came for a second push, and I just watched as the Horde defense slaughtered them, all while I danced atop the Spikes. I got several tells from Alliance along the lines of "WTF!?!". Good times.

    Earth Sheild is our 41 point talent.

    It's already laughably dispellable, since shaman have all of ONE buff on them at any given time in PVP.

    And now they are shitting on the last useful aspect of it, the PVE side.

    I'd say this is pretty fucking disgusting.

    The additional 1 combo point for Shadowstep is like, completely useless. If you're not using Premed on the same target, you're closer to 5CPs but you still have to wait on an energy tick to get there, let alone use them. If you are using Premed, ... well okay, Premed + Shadowstep + Ambush now produces 5 combo points. I guess that's pretty silly. ... in PvP. :|

    In PvE it's a "push button, receive combo point" macro every 30 seconds, which is a retardedly long cooldown. I wish they'd put it back to 20, because at least then it was relevant in grinding and I don't think the ten seconds completely breaks PvP or anything.

    When they're wearing 400+ resilience? A resto shaman is fucking hard to kill. They also have a talent has a hefty chance to restore a significant amount of life when they're below 30%, which is on a 5 second (as I recall) cooldown.

    Seriously. Well geared and well played, they're goddamned annoying. Elemental and enhancement, however, go down like me when drunk... as a prom date. I got nuttin'.

    Also, I finally met a disc priest in an AB the other day. Those bitches take forever to kill.
