    Default A small suggestion

    I was thinking of some new abilities, how about we get a new poison/ability in SL , possibly for assassin.

    target would be "infected" causing healing abilities cast or leaching health from that player to actually do damage back.

    not full blown 100% of healing as damage, but a good % of it, and for a short period, so that ignoring it would cause significant damage, but not simply be healed through/ignored.

    Single target only, or a "from stealth" opener.

    It would effect any and all healing from that target, so self healing.. raid healing to include dmg to heal effects, hots, leaching poison.

    It would also effect people who might attempt a leaching ability on the infected, so that even another rogue on your own team using leaching poison would actually take dmg, or a caster with an hp drain ability would harm themselves using it on the infected.

    Perhaps even a x% of dmg when removed before it's duration effect as well.

    It should not effect healing from items, or item procs.

    I am interested in abilities that would cause players to be very dissuaded in using specific types of action, rather than just ignoring them which is what happens today with any of rogue's current abilities.

    I would also like to see a boss use this type of ability, cast upon 1 healer in the raid at a time, for a period, and forcing them to not heal until they have mitigated the issue.

    Reading this and other posts of yours, you really have a hate-on for healers.

    You should really check into the Dominator mage soul. It has a lot of what you're asking for.
    If you complain about it being on a mage and not a rogue, then give me a mage tank and we'll talk.

    Are fell blades, vampiric munitions, and anathema not enough?

    have you been playing ever? no, no, and no, not stacking, some have proc issues.. DR issues.. oh, and all work very differently. Not to mention.. they are simply ignored and burned through.

    Umm. I don't even know what that first sentence was supposed to say.
    As far as helping, I was suggesting something else you could look into.

    As far as I am aware, there are a number of abilities in each calling that can stop a healer, or at least make healing harder.
    Why do you want more?

    Stopping a healer like that would be the same as allowing someone to Squirrel a player (again, Dominator) and still attack them without is wearing off.

    Maybe a spell that stops the healer from healing, but also goes away if they are attacked. That'd be okay.

    You posted this in the rogue forums too and got a 5 page thread full of people telling you this is a horrible idea. I'd suggest reading your own thread there and trying to understand what they were saying.

    Here's an idea.
    Stop posting on the forums.

    Does that hit a nerve? Because if it does, then it's probably a good idea.

    Feedback doesn't work like that.
    Regardless of what happens, people will always be unhappy. Be thankful for what you have and always be constructive.

    my main has been a rogue since ~20 days after launch, and i think this is a terrible idea

    you really need to get better at taking criticism, the forums arent a place for you to post what you think and have others bow down before you or shut up, its a place for you to post what you think, and for others to post what they think about what you think

    No, it doesn't.

    For example, imagine if a company wants to redesign its logo. It comes up with a color scheme that is very negatively received by its clientele. The correct response to that feedback would be to understand what the clients find offensive about the pattern and redesign it in a way to keep older customers and attract newer ones.

    The wrong response would be proceed as planned, without any regard to your current consumers, alienating them, and potentially losing their business.

    Then you're not a very good designer. Combat needs to be fun for all involved.
