Thread: Rouges have next to no Interrupts.

    Default Rouges have next to no Interrupts.

    Off of the top of my head:

    Riftstalker
    Marksman
    Blade Dancer (but who uses BD?)
    Ranger (has an AOE Interrupt that's bad.)

    Does Tac have one? I know Sabo, Bard, Sin don't have one.

    So what if you're rolling an Expert with 4 Rouges. Are they all expected to go Marksman (and 1 RS)? It's silly.

    So, the four specs that do best in experts, then.

    Ranger's interrupt is fine, and Bladedancer's DPS in expert dungeons is monstrously high, to the point that I can't actually use it most of the time without shredding aggro off PUG tanks on every trash pack and some bosses.

    95% of the time, the tank can handle every interrupt in an expert on his or her own. There are exactly two bosses where this isn't the case: for UV-315 and Dominax, you'll want one DPS that can interrupt. Somebody may have to swap specs for this, but that's not unusual or bad-- some bosses require purges, too.

    You will never, ever need 4 interrupts for any dungeon boss, so I have no idea what that example is supposed to illustrate.

    Also, having an interrupt in half of our DPS specs is not "next to none".

    If you're rolling with 4 rogues, you clearly picked up a 61chloro/9dom/6necro for LE.. That's what we did, we got all the interrupts and purges we ever needed.

    This. Even if a second interrupter is needed, chances are very high that one of the other dps already has an interrupt in their specs.

    Tacman has an interrupt because it goes deep enough into MM. If Sin got an interrupt or a purge non-rogues would have a melt down in terms of PvP. NB could use some utility that was not a drain but again since they have a confuse and silence that can be used situationally in PVP see the issue with Sin.
    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    Sin does have an interrupt of sorts, although it isn't techincally classed as such. Foul Play will work for trash mobs. Just throwing that out there. Downside of it is it doesn't work on most bosses and it is on the gcd.

    if you have a good tank, dps interrupts will never be needed. Dominax will never one-shot a tank in at least expert gears (provided he has no debuffs) and you can always spec double interrupt for UV-315 (why even though you can just int mark of doom and dodge pools) and things like matriarch

    Decimate does like 45-50k dmg, give or take a lil bit. If the tank's topped off and fully cleansed of the -10% hp per stack debuff, you can ignore decimate.

    As for the Golem Foundry boss...

    61rs/12bd!

    I have it for matriarch, having one person doing double interrupt is so much easier than coordinating 2 people/groups for it =P
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~
