Rogues are not easymode.

To reach that level of damage, a rogue has to do much much more than just "spam SS for the win."

I have respeced 5 times so far, and depending on what items I have, I may have to do it again. Good rogues demand constant tweaking. Small readjustment in our strategies, and the best understanding of aggro since we always walk on that thin line between aggroing and doing nothing. Selecting enchants on weapons demand a good understanding of the group dynamics. We lack healers in the guild, so I have to go for self reliance enchants like lifestealing and crusader. This is done at the cost of better damage.

One could say healer is easy mode. All you have to do is stand around and throw healing spells. I seriously doubt all of you have studied carefully, spending almost an hours expirementing between various equipment sets. Selecting the offhand weapon and testing it can do a up to a 30 dps difference if you pick the right one. And sometimes, it means taking the less obvious choice.

Pop quizz:

best offhand between http://thottbot.com/?i=38570 Trash blade and http://thottbot.com/?i=5252 Hanzo sword for a sword specialist?

Same question but for a hemorage rogue?

These questions are how rogues get so strong. Thinking about every detail possible, evaluating all options, and doing hours upon hours of calculation and experimentation.

Arise, thread. WoW Classic is coming out soon. Where are ya'll droppin'? Right now most of my crew is split between Herod (PvP) and Mankrik (PvE). We'll probably spin up a Disciples guild on

gear dependency could be said for every class except for maybe shamans, druids, and beast spec hunters.

hunters can be the same way. except unfortunately for hunters, there's only 2 possible specs that are viable in end-game. 0/21/30, and 0/31/20. that's it. all other specs are going to be passed over for one of the above. the only point in going for beast mastery would be for PvP (however in the next patch not even that will be viable since pets can't attack players anymore). just like priests. shadow priests may be good in PvP, but when was the last time you saw a shadow priest in an MC group? druids probably have it worst though. if you aren't restore, you aren't going ANYWHERE.

Suzu, we have several non-resto druids that go to MC and even BWL with us. Moonkin is a great spec for the +3% crit aura, and they put out decent DPS too. Rogues love Feral spec Druids with the melee crit aura too, and we have a Feral spec Druid who uses all blue gear yet still makes it into the top 10 on the meters. I shudder to think of how much he'll do with a Herald of Woe and MC non-Druid set epics.

Also;

ZG- Zul'Gurub. lvl 60; 20 man. ZG is the most recent dungeon added to the game. It is said to be harder than MC, however my guild is currently working on clearing it. We've cleared 5 bosses so far, and we've yet to even attempt MC. It's still definately no walk in the park though. Lots of good drops here, including many epics.

It's not necessarily harder than MC; it's not as linear. MC bosses up to Rag are all straightforward. You can basically get 'em all on the first attempt, except maybe Domo and Garr. Hell, my guild did it and we're definitely no superstars in PVE. On the other hand, ZG requires a higher level of individual skill and strategy for each boss fight. Even trash mobs are harder than MC. However, it typically requires less gear and allows for a few more mistakes than MC. IMO anyway.

yeah the trash mobs are definately harder in ZG. hell you could wipe a whole group on one giant berserker troll if you're not paying attention. and clearing the area before the spider boss is pure hell.

i've got a feral spec druid alt. he's awesome for solo PvE, but i got dropped from a freaking BFD (yes, BFD) group for not healing... apparently a priest and a shaman isn't enough healing for a 5 man group. -.-'

i've definately learned how to play hunter a lot better from my experience in ZG. i can DPS like mad now and not pull any aggro at all. when i get low on mana, i'll either stick to autoshot for a while, or FD, drink some water, turn off auto-growl and send my pet in to cover for me for a bit. i've saved the group from total wipes. on the snake boss i was the last person standing and got in the killing shot just in time to finish the fight. should have heard the cheering on vent. good times.

I am currently a level 10 Orc Hunter on the Alleria server. I have some questions that need answering.

1.) I'm thinking of going to First Aid and Fishing. Would they be beneficial to my job?

2.) I'm looking for a pet around the Durotar area that has high damage, but can hold itself in battle. Would a Tiger do the job?

3.) What should I spend my Talent points on? I'm looking to be beneficial in PvP, PvE, and Instances.

I make post! For the Horde!

1) First Aid and Fishing are secondary skills. Anyone can take them. Primary skills are things like Blacksmithing and Engineering. First Aid is useful for ANYONE no matter what class or level. Fishing.. not so much. It helps with Cooking (a secondary) and Alchemy, but otherwise not a whole lot.

2) Tigers are excellent all-around pets.

3) With Hunters it is totally up to you, really. A combination of Marksmanship and Survival would be a good bet.

You can get both, but FIrst Aid will help a bit more in end game.

I would say get a boar or bear probably. Generally i find them more useful in pve than a cat. Cats deal more damage, but dont have as much armour or HP as a bear. Another plus is that boars and bears eat anything! even summoned mage food which is nice ;)

Boars will get a nice charge ability next patch.

Which sites do you lot use for free WoW movies? Looking for things like yonder 'World of Roguecraft' etc, but most sites require signup and even premium membership .

warcraftmovies.com

Learn2Click on the proper link ;)

mecca; don't worry. It's so easy to level that you'll be 60 in no time, and then stormshroud will be garbage. Even shadowcraft ain't that great.

Shadowcraft beats not having shadowcraft.

Unless you have 8 different specific blues that rarelly drop, it's safe to say SC will be a good bet.

But, still, Cadaverous armor, eye of rend, devilsaur leggings, devilsaur gloves, (or blademaster's leggings and gargoile slasher) shadowcraft bracers, and shadowcraft belt, is a good combo as well. (bracer and belt are BOE so you can buy them on AH...)

contact the WoW tech support. or something. are you reinstalling?

Aye, just reformatted, and trying to get back on track toward endgames (just saw a video of molten core..can't wait).

Still not seen Onxyia tho..i'm leaving that surprise for when I'm doing it myself :)

Really frustrating considering I've already paid and activated my subscription.

Onyxia is something.

The "instance" itself is straightforward. 4 mobs, 1 corridor, and then boom, dragon's room. Probably as big as the central island of Thunder Bluff. At that point, all hell breaks loose.

Molten Core is a longer run. My former guild only made it up to Magmadaar but even that can take a while.

My guild downed Hakkar for the first time yesterday. It was also the first time they got to him but I don't know if it was the first attempt or not.

I sadly was on the bench. I think I'll wait until that instance is on farm status before going there, they seem overly serious about it (up to yelling at some people on vent) and that is just bad karma.
