I strongly Disagree with those comments, i play a 65 Rogue,
Comment 1: you forgot Picklock, sense and Disarm traps, Pickpockets - they are being used more and more often. not to mention make poison, and with the new Toxicology AA we can make others Poison use better too
Comment 2: I solo a lot, im always scouting out stuff for members of my guild, such as is a mob up or what ever - Not all mobs show on Track so you have to go get dirty.
True we cant solo as well as some of the other classes, till i got some better gear (i now wear GM Lightring armour), i was restricted to the old Lightblues to solo, with GM Lightring i can easily Solo the old DB and occasionally able to handle a single add as well.
but thats part of the chalange, we pick our targets carefully and take em out, we dont blunder into a room and agro every mob like a warrior or Berserker would do, we are the masters of stealth, and if the sh*t should hit the fan and we need to get the hell out of there, then we have AAs for Runspeed and Escape, etc.
Comment 3: Ive been taken in preference to a Wizard loads of times, yes they have nice burst DPS, but they over nuke they are dead, we on the other hand over agro, we use Evade and drop back below the Tank again, we have good sustained DPS, dependant on the tank i have in my group, depends on how often i have to actually evade, Good tank, maybe once or twice a fight, usually just after ive Crit backstabbed, Bad tank (and ive had a few), i evade alot, or in a couple of cases ive taken over being Main Tank. as for monks, we can pull too, the only advantage they have we dont is FD. but we can Ping pull using evade.
comment 4: I personally have never had a problem with the stuff we get....sounds like your what we used to call in desktop RPG as a powergamer.....want God's weapons and kit all the time.
Comment 5: since i play as first person view, cant comment on that as im never looking at myself.
Comment 6: if your spamming stuff on a Raid, im sure the Raid leader loves you.
I am not in an Uber guild and i rarely Raid, at the moment im still waiting to do TT part of Hedge event, i have never been to Halls of Honor or Time.......in short im not an Uber Rogue.
