After two months spent out of game (thanks go to a knackered graphics card and an ISP who decided throttling me down to 2.5k download would be a laugh) I’m back and once again enjoying WoW. In all honesty I was unsure if I’d return – being forced to have time off killed my interest in the game some what, especially as I was unsure if I’d get back before the season ended. However, an evening spent talking to Cragrock got me to activate my subscription, so I’m back in game at last!
I don’t have time to play both my rogues competitively, so I’ll be playing Dcruize, who I transfered and X-factioned to Terenas-EU as a human (I now have 5 black war bears in my bank…). In preparation for Catacylsm I’ll be changing to a shadowstep-daggers spec until 2.2k, then most likely shadowstep-swords afterwards. The few games we’ve played since transfering have been a bit scratchy, mostly down to me being out of practice I think. There’s a scary amount of Wizard-cleave teams around now and it feels like every cleave team is carrying at least one Shadowmourne – hopefully the extra mobility, cheapshots and slight survivability from a shadowstep spec will help counter the pounding I’m taking (100-0 in a deathcoil = ouch, just ouch).
On a sad note it appears that Akrios (roguerogue.com) has stopped playing. Old news I know, but it’s still a shame that another rogue has gone, although hopefully on to bigger and better things. Best of luck Akrios, I never spoke to you, but damn you had my respect!
I started writing lastrogue.com shortly after WotlK launched, at a time when the rogue population was falling rapidly – the name for the site came about after I did a “/who rogue 80 dalaran” and found that I was the only one there. Things have picked up dramatically since then and I’m certain that Cataclysm will breathe a lot more life into the rogue class, but it’s still a shame to see the rogue population decrease, even by one (especially when that ‘one’ was such a prolific figure in the rogue community).
I’ll be posting again very shortly, so until then, may all your vanishes be clean ones! And thanks for the duel Doby
