Thread: Rogues

  1. #1

    Question Rogues

    So i have flipped through the 80 pages skimming headlines for rogues in a boxing world. What if your main screen was your rogue until/unless your tank losses agro (pve rogue obviously)? Couldn't one shadowstep/stealth to drop most or all agro via hotkey while going to your tank screen to regain agro/back to placement? I assume the mechanics may be a bit of overload for isboxer?

    I am trying a prot war, rogue, hunter, lock priest...i like a challenge LOL

    I am sure this has been tried many ways. I come from using ISBoxer with EQ2, and before programs like this existed, 5 pc's, 3 monitors, keyboards and mice during early EQ1

    You definitely can use rogues. The main reason people don't is that they generally require a lot more individual focus as a part of their normal gameplay than a lot of other classes and the upside of having a rogue is just seen as not worth the hassle. That isn't to say that if you want one you could not have one.

    Personally I don't even see it as necessary to lead from the rogue. A threat monitoring addon would give you a good idea on when the rogue would be close to pulling agro and you could have separate hotkeys for making it cloak+vanish to drop agrro, or just virtualize it in to a lower aggro rotation to give the tank time to generate a lead again.

    Their DPS rotation is not as static as other classes so you won't get the same efficiency when DPS matters due to combo point management.

    It's tough. I also played a very mixed comp in EQ2 as well so I know where you are coming from. It's doable but it depends what your goals are with the team.

    I am new to WoW after boxing 24 toons myself at one time and raiding on TLP EQ2 for many years... So I understand what you are "thinking" because what you said is EXACTLY what I said on my first group and did a mixed group. Absolute waste of time (for me at least).

    I have learned a lot in the one month or so that I have been into WoW pretty hardcore building my team and teams. The one thing about WoW that I absolutely despise is that you essentially have to run quest after quest after quest after freaking quest.. and you spend more time in this game running from area to do quest back to reward and back and back and back.. Get quest, run to area for 5 mins, kill 10 MOB's in under a minute, run back for 5 minutes. So it's like a 10-1 ratio of action/runing a lot of the time. Its almost caused me to quit like 4 times, because I am comparing it to 10 years of EQ2 where you can literally jump into action at level 1 and not complete a single quest and get to lvl 50 faster... and its action the entire time and pulling mobs etc... so that has taken me awhile to get used to here in WoW....its so damn boring leveling up.

    The group that I have had the most fun leveling and stuck with past 50 is War/Dru/Hun/Hun/Hun. I did do about 5 different setups to lvl 40 or so and none of them intrigued me to play past that (except for my current). Can do about any encounter and any dungeon so far with relative ease as long as you know the strat. Around 115 now and still pretty lethal... for off tiem I am leveling up 5 Paladins (WAY more fun than I thought it would be) they are lvl 40ish... and just started 1BMK/4ELSHM (primarily so I can que). Just my 2 cents as I am still new and learning after playing EQ2 for 10 years and even boxed 30+ in EQ1

    If you need any help in game or want to run some stuff together down the road like raiding send me a PM here... got my own guild with all my toons in it and a totally dead server, which I love. Have literally seen less than 10 people my entire time leveling on the server (out in the world, a few more in towns).... it feels like I own it!

    ...Of course that is just my opinion, I could be wrong.
