How to rogue

Since I admittedly cannot rogue, Andrew has taken it upon himself to make a flowchart to show me.

Just so you are aware, this is the proper rotation – 111116111131111311116



Go read Arioch’s new post!

    Before anyone bitches me out, no it’s not optimal, (especially the Bosskilling portion) hence why it says For Beginners. 😉 There’s a limit to how much of my life I’m willing to waste flowcharting to get all the little nuances. >.> But it was fun in a perverse way to map out my decision-making process. I’d actually like to see flowcharts for other classes just to see what they use as their basis for strategy and skill use…

    I literally LOL’ed when I got to “Do they have a lot of health?” and the no answer was “Bleh” … even at level 22 that would be my rogue’s exact response 😀

    If you don’t care, I will make you a DK dps flowchart and send it to Koalabear. Do you want an “Unholy” or a “Blood” spec flowchart, lol.

        The majority of what I have seen still shows 2H tanking beats DW. Half the idio…errr players that DW tank use 2 fast tanking weapons, which may do fine for threat in fast heroics, but not so much (based on various posts and threat generation charts I have seenon the subject) for long boss fights where slower dps’ing weapons generate a considerably higher amount of threat over the course of the fight (I know shocking right).

        The there is the hit cap issue, which when you DW you essentially lose your realistic ability to cap your white swings, at least easily.

        Most DK tanks I’ve gone against that use 2H weapons, unless they are fail tanks I rarely if ever pull off of, the latter is not true for the DW tanks I’ve had the extreme displeasure of grouping with, even after waiting a full 5-6 count b4 attacking. The only exception was one that was using DPS weapons, not tanking ones..

        Dilynrae is exactly correct. I use a big ole 2H sword with a 2H spec when I’m tanking. I’ve seen far too many people trying to DW tank with the wrong weapons. Heck, I’ve seen far too many people trying to DW dps with the wrong weapons.

    Woot woot! I’d love to see some more classes with charts. :3

    I can do an Affliction Lock real quick and dirty, if my ASCII skillz don’t fail me..
