    Default It's official. Rogue calling dies at lvl 50

    Have fun leveling because you wont do anything else once you hit 50. Our only viable options for both PvP and PvE got nerfed to the ground. Sabs taking over a 50% dps loss. if we were doing 700dps before we will be doing 350dps or less now at lvl 50! There is simply no way around these nerfs. Sad to think that ALL of my 4 roles will get talents refunded and be at 0. I will not bother spec'ing them either, my rogue will sit at 0 empty roles after this patch permanently unless they give us 1, just 1 dps soul, i dont care what it is. dont care if it's ranger, marksman, assassin, bladedancer, or nightblade... just give me ONE!!! Cause when this patch goes live we will have 0 and the class will be dead at 50.

    p.s. 1-49 is great fun as a rogue, rangers are amazing levelings, pet cant survive at 50 but until 50 they are amazing, so don't complain about you being lvl 46 and having a blast because you will have a blast until 50 and right now you will have a blast at 50... but once these changes go live you will be dead and confused.

    My 50 sin in clown suit gear does 700 dps.

    Think rogues will be fine.

    Not only are those alpha notes not final, they're also rather incomplete. They contain nothing for the Assassin and Nightblade souls, for example.

    On melee friendly fights sure but I doubt it on high movement fights which most are.

    the patch notes are so lol,

    Ground of Strenght, 6 points talent, yeah, i see immun mages everywhere.

    Only PvP rouge Soul in the ground nerfed, range lesser (always in range of Bullscharge, Hurra), damage lesser, ... real PvP soul does less damage ... Raid = PvP healing from Bard is lower...

    and best thing, i do not find any buffy for the other rouge souls...

    Think TRION will keep lots of fights melee unfriendly?

    Probably not.

    Even blizzard didn't keep in the 360 cleave mobs had during TBC.

    Besides, the only melee unfriendly fights I've seen are the ones where you choose to exploit the range so that they won't get hit by AoE/Nukes and the boss's only off-target to attack is the 1 melee.

    My Saboteur was too strong before lvl50. It's really a fact. With a good gear, os wasn't exceptionnal and the common situation was to make a loss of 80%+++ life on my opponents.
    I was playing with a full charge build with a great survivability:
    http://seelenplaner.telara.net/#rogu...1,005503301001
    Blinding powder and foul play allowed me to easily perfect almost anybody.


    After lvl50, i lost all my burst but my opponents are still as strong as (and stronger than) before. Now, they are nerfing the sab, ok, i'm not playing sab anymore.
    Many people will be happy.

    On my side, i'm really unhappy.
    I don't like the last bg based on the pve and the aoe.
    I didn't like the leveling that was faaaar too fast.
    It's the first time in my "mmo life", i'm so unhappy to be at and to have reached the top lvl.

    So doing 30% less DPS than warriors is fine?

    How does that mean they're incomplete? That just means that Assassins/Nightblades aren't getting anything.

    No he doesn't. Your sin in clown gear doesnt even do 350 dps.

    Rogue class is dead.

    Now you honestly think rogue will be ignored for the remaing duration of rift?? However many years it will be an active mmo? We are 3 weeks post launch. Chill out a bit and have faith. So far the devs are quick to patch things from what I see. warriors getting nerf, that alone should help lvl the dps gap. But I expect more in the coming weeks.

    So warriors will still do 30% more DPS than rogues after the patch? Good to know.

    Paragons got buffed. Even with the fix to armor pen in they'll still be doing more DPS than they are now.
