    Default So, why am I a rogue again?

    Alright, don't get me wrong. I love the rogue playstyle, and I'm running a fully geared T2 ranged DPS, T1.5 tank, and I recently hit prestige 3.

    But what's so good about rogues?
    From my standpoint, here's a quick overview:

    Warriors:
    Better tanks, more durability. More DPS.

    Mages:
    Better support/offhealing. WAY more DPS.

    Clerics:
    Better tanks. WAY better support/Main healing. Somewhat on par with rogue DPS.

    Except that Rogues are the best tanks, and can on a dime swap to dependable and nice dps, and/or heals and support.

    We can do anything in the game to satisfaction.

    And we smell better.

    We're the best tanks? Since when. Did they finally add an AoE finisher that generates threat?

    QQ, lol if you cant hold threat w/o an aoe finisher it says a lot more about you than it does the class. jfc you are terrible.

    I appreciate the sentiment, but I actually wanted some input.

    We don't need an AoE finisher... Rogues are currently the best tanks. We take the less damage, 3 AoE threat abilities that DO NOT share a cool down (unlike warriors), and we get immunes, 50% dodge increases, and other goodies that warriors do not get. If you read the 1.2 patch notes, the threat generation from Rift Disturbance was increased.

    Now about rogue dps. Where do I start... Our top 3 DPS are currently, Rogue, Rogue, and Rogue. If you want parsers then send me a PM and I'll parse Plut (our next boss fight) on Monday and post them where ever. I currently do not have any parses saved. If you can't pull 950+ on a boss dummy, then you should really rethink how you're gearing, how you're speccing, or your rotation. Bladedancers do way more than enough dps that I could have ever hoped for as a rogue. Sozu's ranger build is pretty solid and there are new Sab specs roaming around that are solid as well.

    You Ma'am, are a whinny *****.

    I'm totally aware of that. But are those seriously the only areas we come out on top in?

    Yeah I said the same thing. Our good mages are Chloros/Archon. We're working with them though and about to pick up some solid mages in full T3 so I get someone to compete with haha

    Believe me, if you get a stormcaller, or a decently geared warrior your dps is going to drop off in comparison.

    Well we do have a greatly geared Warr. Even has the relic from GS. He jumps up to the top 3 sometimes but our rogues are beast. Easy 1.2k-1.3k on every boss. I'm waiting to get a really good SC. We have one, however he isn't geared to the teeth by any means. We are working on his gear though. And we're low on Warr DPS. When our OT isn't tanking, he'll DPS. Other than that, we only have 1 Warr DPS. We're working on them. It's funny because we don't lack DPS by any means on DPS races which I find odd due to our lack of SC and Warr DPS. Oh well..
