It's that lovely period in the expansion where changes and hotfixes are coming thick and fast. We are being tweaked. And re-tweaked. If you are wondering where we stand at any given moment, hop in to our IRC or onto our Forums with your question. There is bound to be a rogue with an answer hanging out:
In blog news, Haileaus talks Subtlety in 6.0.2:
And Falkien is serving the Brazilian rogues with Warlords of Draenor guides in Portugese:
Also, in case you missed it, we have you covered in 6.0.2:
Please note that all guides may be a little off at any given time due to the aforementioned tweaking. If you notice an inconsistency, tell us in our Forums and we will check it out.
In addition to the gear available from the new UBRS which we mentioned a few days ago, the Blasted Land Questline is rewarding a few ilevel 515 to 520 pieces for those who may find them useful:
|Invader's Scarlet Seal||515||Ring||Attack of the Iron Horde|
|Skulltooth Collar||515||Neck||Lunatic Lieutenants|
|Chain of Evasion||515||Neck||Lunatic Lieutenants|
|Wildfire Windcloak||515||Cloak||Toothsmash the Annihilator|
|Night Prowler's Cloak||515||Cloak||Toothsmash the Annihilator|
|Talisman of the Invader||520||Trinket||Gar'mak Bladetwist|
While most of the Iron Horde mobs don't have pockets to pick, be sure to pickpocket the named quest mobs, Rukah the Machinist, Gar Steelcrush, and Mokrik Blackfingers to get your Secretive Whistle. Pickpocketing now yields miscellaneous soulbound items. Once you have the Secretive Whistle, you can summon Griftah and fence those items for a new currency, Dingy Iron Coins. Griftah will give out quests to exchange the Dingy Iron Coins for gold.
6.0 has finally arrived and Ravenholdt has everything that you need to get your Rogue up and running before Warlords of Draenor.
Sativ has written up a guide to what has changed for us:
New Ravenholdt guides are up for each spec:
ShadowCraft has been updated for 6.0. Check out Indz's post on the Ravenholdt forums for details:
Backstabi has built us an addon to help out with managing our Combo Points now that they are on the Rogue rather than on the target:
As as we mentioned last week, there are a few pieces of 550 ilevel gear that will be dropping from the new Upper Black rock Spire dungeon:
And last but not least, The Official Patch notes:
See you in 6.0!
Sativ has discovered something very interesting about Shadow Reflection:
Prinnie Powah at That Was an Accident! has a fun guide to rogue leveling for the non-rogue:
Falkien helps out Brazilian Rogues with some tutorials:
And 6.0 comes out on Tuesday - I took a quick look at what's in it for us:
