Rogue Changes in Beta 8885

Posted 1 year, 6 months ago at 8:47 am. 0 comments

Looks like some of the changes actually made it into the last beta build.  Among them is the group utility ability hinted at in the blue note of my last post.  Tricks of the Trade, is basically a Rogue version of Misdirect, with an accompanying damage percentage buff to our Tricks target. This is exactly the ability I’ve been hoping for to allow us to help kill the pesky Mage or Warrior that has been beating us on the meter!  Well, I suppose the responsible thing would be to use it on the tank, but it seems like WAY too much fun to use it this way instead.  Just remember to macro your “Opps!  I misTricked!” response.

Also, due to the buff and debuff changes, I’m wondering if it will stack with Ferocious Inspiration or Sanctified Retribution as they also both buff damage by a percentage amount.
