    Default Impractical and possibly bugged NB and BD aoes

    Fiery Chains, Weapon Flare, Twin Strike and Compound Attack have only 5 meter radius while just about every other "nearby"-type aoe has a 7 meter radius. 5 meter radius aoe covers just barely half of the area of a 7 meter radius aoe. In fact them having only 5 meters seems such an oversight that I would consider it a bug.

    Also their method of spreading the damage from the target instead of the rogue makes them impractical. For comparison almost all warrior aoes are 7 meter radius 360 aoes based on the warrior which allows positioning to be used to for example hit two targets that are almost 14 meters apart.

    The skills would be much more practical with the following fixes/changes:
    Fiery Chains - 7 meter radius from target.
    Weapon Flare - 360 degree 7 meter radius aoe around the rogue.
    Twin Strike - 7 meter radius from target, allows follow-up attacks.
    Compound Attack - 360 degree 7 meter radius aoe around the rogue.

    Do you really think fixing the radius on Weapon Flare would matter? The ability is pretty terrible.

    I'd take it over nothing, though!

    What I was getting at, is that if you're in a situation where you need to AOE as NB, you might be in the wrong spec.

    Sometimes you want to aoe or cleave even if it's not the optimal way to play the spec. So it would be good to have them at least somewhat practical instead of only working on mobs that are literally standing right on top of each other.
