    Default Is 1.5 going to force rogues into playing melee?

    Already as a ranged rogue its hard to beat a sin who opens on you. With the buffs to their damage they are going to own any rogue who tries to range. Range Damage needs a major buff, There are mages that can sit their and just take any damage you throw at them without fighting back.

    ps: yes i know some there is a slight change to ranged rogue damage but i think more will need to be done in order to make them a threat.

    Depends on the Rank. I'd expect to see Eradicators taking advantage of the munitions.

    God, I hope so. Tried of seeing lol marksmen who don't know how to kite.

    I see builds having a minimum of 18 into mm much like champions.

    You can't really kite in Rift.

    Not with EB bugged + Riftwalk spam.


    Only way I can half decently kite them is 0pt sab for snare that ignores DR length (100% both times),

    + an OtD Strafe combo to bug out riftwalk.

    RW range is way smaller than your MM range. If you can't kite with that and swiftshot run buff up... (taking enough place and a 1on1 situation).
    Oh and Eradicate and end of RW spam...

    When have you ever had a warrior lumber towards you not on a mount?

    With the poor netcode as soon as you can fire on them they are already in range and probably won't be dismounted.

    Plus if you try to eradicate them first, you aren't gonna knock em off their mount lol.

    Soon as they tag you with EB you are dead.

    They can destroy a MM in 3 GCDs easily.

    You will probably also run into another player/npc/wall when you try to kite them (which will be a looong time, you aren't killing them for at least 20 Globals.)

    except I kite warriors all the time.

    10 pt inquisitor + purge goes a long way. knowing is half the battle ... GI JOE!!!

    And if you can't kite as a MM ... what can I say, you're playing the wrong calling.

    Its easier to kite on sturdier classes. I can lolbunnyhop on my mage quite easily.

    they must have disabled the space bar on rogues then, better put a bug report for it.

    With 5 roles will probably keep the same main ones I do now. Sab, MM, Assassin centric builds. Just my favorite playstyle and I already enjoy them. May mess around with where I spend the spare points, but seems like no matter what playstyle you focused on before will just do better after the patch anyway. I got a couple roles I goof off with though, will have to screw around and see what I can work with ^.^

    Also, I don't mind losing at all, I can take a beating. But I'm getting close to needing 3 hands to count some occasions I died because I couldn't get away with all my CC breaks I have cause of that Earthburst garbage. I mean don't get me wrong, I would use it if I was a warrior too, who wouldn't use a wonky CC effect that hardly anyones breaks work on. Lameburst is Lame. I honestly hate dying cause of buggy stuff. ;/ Wish they would fix it so breaks actually break it. It's pretty brutal from a Rogue PoV where sometimes your mobility saves you in a clutch moment. Cripples me
