    Default Hows Rogue DPS at 50?

    Ive seen a ton of people saying that rogue DPS at 50 is just awful. Are these claims true or is it just some ppl whinning? At 50 with a well built soul combo can you do competetive DPS in a raid situation?

    IMO, any builds with NB are competive "enough" in end-game dungeons/raids. in PvP, its all about gears. However, with the same gears, rogues are "a little bit" inferior to other classes
    Here is some reasons:
    - Attack power doesnt scale much with rogues' skills unlike Warriors' ones, and way far behind spellpower of Mages, Clerics.
    - Another is energy starving. Most of rogues have to stop like at least 0.5 s per 5 GCD hits. Warriors yellow bar wont come off as much as rogue. Mages/Clerics have no worry about their infinite mana pool.
    - Rogues are given some crappy skills by drunk devs for April's fools (Motif of encouragement, Enduring brew,...)
    - ...Some of other classes are just plainly OP or too good.

    rogue dps is subpar to any other class in the game, besides a bard...

    rogues are pretty much the joke of the game...


    and as minute tweaking they are getting in the patch notes, every other class is also getting tweaks to bump up their defense, so the rogues will be in the exact same position they are in now in pvp...

    pve, why take a rogue when you can take a warrior or mage?

    Maybe because rogue can sap some heavy hitter mobs for 45s so that your team can finish others before it wakes up. It saves your healer some extra works. Other than that, im still thinking about it.
