    Default Rogue 1.7 Testing

    So, I am sure you guys remember what it was like when we were testing for 1.5/1.6 (whenever that big change was :s), we were all really excited and debriefed everyone on the forums about our findings, and 99 percent of the time you would see a nerf to that certain combination.
    So when 1.7 comes out on the PTS, lets keep it to PMs or in game chat...or even get a universal rogue mumble/vent/team speak happening to compare results and share findings.
    I for one do not...want a repeat of 1.5/1.6.

    Current changes for 1.7 don't even look that good to me.
    I'm not getting excited at all because of some little BD changes, which don't amount to much at all and slightly higher hitting poisons.

    My bet: 1.7 doesn't change anything.

    The synergy between elemental attacks, armor penetration, no DD and no lingering Flame is overwhelming.

    You forgot the macros and rotation for the build tho:

    I'm glad 1.7 raises our AoE-DPS to an acceptable level.

    The Bloodied Blows of my Raptor will hit like a truck.

    Honestly I barely see any activity on it anymore, but I always figured it would be pretty dead with the exception of significant class tweaks like the 1.5 patch.

    Either way, it's not so "secret" anymore of for that matter locked down. Anyone can see the posts there now. Maybe it's restricted in who can post, but I would be surprised if that was the case.

    So you mean, rogue DPS is like...

    1 enemy - decent DPS
    2 enemies - utter crap DPS
    3 enemies - utter crap DPS
    4 enemies - still crappy DPS
    5 enemies - utter crap DPS
    6 enemies - still crappy DPS
    7 enemies - almost decent DPS
    8 enemies - decent DPS
    9 enemies - almost decent DPS
    10 enemies - almost decent DPS
    11 enemies - still crappy DPS
    12 enemies - almost decent DPS
    13 enemies - decent DPS
    14 enemies - decent DPS
    15 enemies - good DPS
    16 enemies - good DPS
    17 enemies - really good DPS
    18 enemies - really good DPS
    19 enemies - nearly OP DPS
    20 enemies - OP DPS

    PS:
    Crap DPS = being 4th
    Decent DPS = being 2nd to 3rd.
    Good DPS = being 1st or 2nd
    OP DPS = 1st by miles

    All,

    I agree to keep this from being public as possible. But also have to say even PMs/In game talk im sure if they really wanted to can track that as well. So for this venture I will offer my vent for this occasion (HAPPILY). I have yet to be on the PTS but have no issue doing so. I have small guild currently but have lots of slots on my vent. So let me know when you want this to start and I will create a private channel in the vent for this occasion

    It's pretty sad that a thread like this even exists, even if it's half serious.

    But yeah, seeing how things when for our PTS, might as well as keep the parses out.

    I think it's beyond sad that the rogue community in RIFT feels so burned and mistrustful of the devs that theory-crafters and build-testers that haven't already left feel they have to resort to 'super secret' forums in order to test any changes coming down the pipe.

    Very sad.

    Be open, be honest. If they are going to nerf, they are going to nerf. Trying to hide something is likely to result in a larger nerf with no compensation. It isn't like they won't find out about any special build once things go live.
