A rogue problemJune 16, 2008
Today, I decided to talk about something that is really very hard to talk about. Every time I think about it, it brings tears to my eyes and terror to my face. I know you have all thought the same thing and we are all hoping and praying for a nerf. All I have to say is I hate rogues.
Not to discriminate, but I really have an issue with the rogue, specifically, the horde rogue class. It probably doesn’t help that I am a rogue magnet. Whether I am farming or doing arena, rogues are drawn to me, every single time.
I think my whole rogue issue started when I was just a young druid, questing my way through Darkshire. I was minding my own business, doing my own thing, when all of a sudden SAP. Confused and panicked, that level “skull” rogue wouldn’t let me go. It was stun, then stealth, then almost kill me, let me health up, and then stun again. It was awful, never ending, and I was traumatized.
I know I have said that every class is equal and that it only depends on your skill and spec. But, honestly I think rogues have a complete advantage with their stuns and poisons that kill me without even letting me move. That’s when I realized; the only way to beat a rogue is to roll a rogue.
So I tried it, and realized that being a rogue takes a lot more skill than you would think. Even though I’m only at level 6, I can only imagine how difficult it would be to be a 70 rogue. The stuns and poisons that kill me would probably take a lot of practice to master and a lot of time to learn. So, its not that I hate the rogue, it’s that I am jealous of them.
