    Default I can't decide after reading patch notes.... please help!

    So I was originally going to go something like MM/Rang/Sab or MM/Rang/Bard.

    This was of course, until I noticed that Rogues -- especially MM and Rang have been nerfed a ton. I am concerned about doing way less damage than before... like in Beta.

    So now I am stuck with the difficult choice of rolling a Mage, like a Pyro or something or sticking with a MM/Rang Rogue.

    What do you guys think?
    I am super perplexed and at the moment I am super indecisive.

    The change or nerf is dramatic for Marksman. You were basically one of the top 3 classes in terms of dps during open beta. Now you are one of the last 3. You're still going to be the 2nd most squishy class after Mages, but Mages have one of the strongest dps. Good luck if you decide to go MM. Be prepared to always count on many people though.

    lol, I'm not sure if you're serious or being sarcastic. I think other classes have much better AOE with a much wider range.

    Other classes with better AOE (Stormcaller) go OOM in about 10sec, MM don't. Also MM has longer range and more tools to **** melee range. MM wasnt meant to be THE AoE spec in WF, it was meant to be a mobile , hit & run spec.

    Haha nice call.
    Also as someone said before, MM is a hit-and-run spec: mobility is the key to any successful engagement with other players and marksman have many abilities to be able to keep mobile and out of melee range where they are vulnerable. Most casters do not have that luxury.
