    Default Info on new rogue soul?

    Mages say they are hearing about their new soul in 2 weeks after the live stream which I haven't had the chance to watch yet.

    When can rogues expect information on our new soul?

    The recording can be found here:

    http://www.twitch.tv/trionworlds/b/325396463

    They get to answering questions at about 37:45 (previous to that is them showing off PF and Elrar's amazing nagivation skills).

    The stuff relevant to rogues is that the reveal will be done via livestream, but they won't be able to give a specific date until they're almost on top of it; same with most SL info. The changes to the existing souls will most likely not take place in 1.10 since people are still progressing in raids or some other such hooey.

    To sum up the entire 14-ish minutes of Q&A:

    Patch 1.10 will be the last patch before Storm Legion;
    They can't answer most of our questions because they don't know yet either;
    There will be more livestreams that focus on SL "in the near future";
    They're looking at making it easier for Defiant and Guardian players to play together as early as 1.10;
    New hairstyles in the expansion;
    Some of the Scavenger Hunts are getting more casual friendly;
    The new mage soul is being debuted in a couple weeks via livestream (others to follow);
    The changes to the existing soul trees are not likely to be made live soon;
    New levels mean more soul points;
    PA's not going away;
    Beta is "probably soon!" and you can opt in via the account management page when it's available;
    Next week they're hosting a Kill The Devs Event on livestream doing a game of Conquest on each wargroup;
    Something about AMA's on reddit during the Kill The Devs event;
    Elrar can turn himself into a ginormous sheep, larger than the troll form you get by eating Popcorn

    More than likely, they're staggering the announcements to build hype for the new expansion, which isn't a bad way to do it.

    Staggering the release is a good idea, but mages are the worst group to give the first soul revelation to. The amount of whining, complaining and pouting they manage to generate inside any given thread is ginormous.

    Here's the highlights from mage soul unveiling ceremony:
    "We didn't want this soul!"
    "When you will fix domi and CC?"
    "When do we get pet classes as top DPS?"
    "When can I heal as well as cleric in WFs?"
    "When can I tank a warrior and laugh at their face?
    "When do we get uncleansable and passively applied healing debuff?"

    Because other classes never complain? There are endless threads about rogue energy, our largely unusable top DPS spec, PvP flag carrying, Bard's aggravating playstyle, vulnerability to warriors in WFs, and more. And many of these concerns (particularly energy starvation) tend to pop up in threads where they don't belong, especially if Ailion has just posted there.

    That would be great.

    I know I personally won't be complaining about what the new soul for Mages will be because they'd have to be off their flipping tree to give us anything other than healing or tanking.
    Nothing else is a possibility.
    Nope.
