The Rogue Changes Coming in Warlords of Draenor

Updated 9/20/14. Warlords will be released on Nov 13, 2014. Things are changing for Rogues in Warlords of Draenor, though (thankfully) less than with the last couple of expansions. There is no world breaking and no complete overhaul of the talent system. There are a number of “tweaks” coming, however. These are intended to streamline the game a bit and make our action bars a bit easier to manage. Keep in mind that all of this may change by the time Warlords is released and will probably be patched & hotfixed for some weeks after that. First off is… Also…

The Patch 5.4 Rogue Changes

The Patch 5.4 Rogue changes are mostly pretty good. Eviscerate does less damage, but a number of other buffs more than make up for that. You’re dodgier than before (Evasion buff,) get more from Recuperate, and got a number of positive changes to your talents. Combat even got a new ability. PvP notes: Your (everyone’s) Resilience is now 72%, so geming for the stuff isn’t a good idea. Dodging is now better for all Rogues.

The Subtlety Rogue in the Mists of Pandaria

The World of Warcraft expansion: Mists of Pandaria is coming soon, although as of this writing it’s still in early beta test and has lots of bugs. Still, all of the bugs will be fixed (or most, anyway) and the expansion will launch and the rush to 90 will start. (I predict 17 hours in-game time for the first person to hit level 90.) The talent system is being completely revised, more so than when Cataclysm hit. All those 41 points spent (at 85) wil go poof, though some will be retained as spec specific abilities. Of course, everything might change between…

Legendary Rogue Weapons

Raiding Rogues will have a reason to be happy in patch 4.3 (due to be released whenever.) There’s a pair of Legendary Daggers that will be available. No lore is available yet. Expect tweaks to this item before it’s released and maybe after, as well. The existence of the new daggers has been known for awhile, but there’s a bit more new info, below. WoWheadNews has this in their post: Fangs of the Father: Legendary Proc Shadows of the Destroyer: Increases your Agility by 17, stacking up to 50 times. Once you have acquired 30 stacks of Shadows of the…
