Aye Fishy, rogues are loads of fun.
I've always played a rogue in these games (or the closest thing to it - eg. smuggler in SWG) as it suits my playstyle the most.
Unfortunately in WoW there are 2 main problems with rogues:

1: There are millions of the buggers, it's possibly the most popular class (tho I'm just guessing here).

2: All they offer a group is damage, they don't have much in the way of utility skills, and the ones they do have are generally done better by other classes. However, a well played rogue can be very useful to a team as their potential melee damage output is unmatched.

Problem is I think me and tonst are the only people who play on there on a regular basis so it might be a bit lonely :(.

Also look up Komarr (qrt), Pleasure (Swongo, qrt's mate), HunkyDory or myself (Martian, Serra, Tifany, Munkeh). Type
/join kowo
to find out whoever's on, though our presence there is limited. Also Stormrage is PvE not PvP, though there's nothing to stop you typing
/pvp
and doing it like that anyway :)

Oh, and please note we all play Alliance aminly :) Hunky has a Horde alt called Fleeridden, I think qrt has one too.

Sap is fantastic for instances, that alone earns them a place in any group.

Sap is brilliant and they can single handedly occupy a mob with stun lock if it gets hairy in an instance too which I have done all too often :D Might be a tad different at 60 though ;)

We took 3 rogues into SM cathedral the other day and got through it in 20 minutes :P

Well my first impression is pretty mixed.

Not being able to create a toon on the same server as you guys or my old SWG guild has been a massive negative.

So much so that I won't buy the game as it stands.

I will keep plodding along for the next 9 days on Stormrage and see if I get hooked I suppose :)

Tonst/fishy, I totaly agree about sap, which is why I have maxed the improved sap talents.
However, you guys appear to be in the minority of non rogues who are actually aware of it's existance, never mind it's usefulness.

Whenever I've been in a non guild group, all you ever hear is "sheep that one, shackle that one", nobody ever seems to think to ask me if I can sap mobs too, and if they do know about sap, they ALWAYS sheep/shackle first and then say "why didn't you sap?"... BECAUSE IT CAN ONLY BE USED OUTSIDE COMBAT, NUMBNUTS, AS SOON AS YOU SHEEP/SHACKLE, THE MOBS ARE IN COMBAT SO I CANT SAP.


*deep breath*
Sorry, it kinda winds me up as you can probably tell. :)

On Stormrage Sap is ALWAYS first, then sheep/shackle after, it's the de facto standard for immobilising mobs.

What's your char called Ron?

Aye sorry juri, just found my warrior more enjoyable to play. Plus PvE suits me a lot better. I'm actually looking forward to wandering around all the contested territory's without worrying about gankage :P.
