    Default Base attributes per class - rogue nerfed?

    As I'm modeling a tool which calculates stats amongst other things, I have been figuring out the base stats for a level 50 character. That is without talents, buffs and gear. So far I have come up with these numbers:

    Warrior: 74 Str 35 Dex
    Rogue: 71 Dex 35 Str
    Cleric: 74 Wis 35 Int
    Mage: 74 Int 35 Wis

    I have verified this with a number of players and it seems to be correct.

    Now my question: Why doesn't rogue have a base dexterity value of 74?

    Because your GCD are 1 second compared to all other classes 1.5 sec..casters get higher statvalue to boost spellpower since we dont benefit from weapon damage like melee classes do.

    even so dex scales better for melee warriors and rouges so consider them ahead of the warriors
    And the little Warrior said to the little Mage "One day I'm going to grow up to be a fierce dual wielding Paragon and people will run in fear because I'll be so Intimidating in Battle" The Mage looked at the little Warrior and said "Ya well, I'm going to be a Pyromancer" and that was that.

    Hey, the more time they spend fixing this game breaking oversight, the less time they have to nerf Mages! You should be happy Roobarb has our backs!

    nope slow energy regen makes it slower more like 1.5, also our attacks do less damage.
