Since my Rogue is kind of in cruise control in Suramar now working its way towards Pathfinder I've decided to mess around with a Death Knight on the side since it's the last class I haven't really tried. It's a lot of fun, feels like some weird grimdark Paladin mashed up with a Warrior. All of the specs seem interesting but I've enjoyed being a low budget Arthas the most.

Follower AI is probably the same shit sandwich driving Warlock and Hunter pet A.I. There's all sorts of weird pathing and behaviour issues in Legion, like the one you just mentioned. It's why I just leave all of my followers for missions instead of using one as a bodyguard.

You can do it with a 5 stack against beginner AI in under two hours. That's like two matches of Dota. I guess it's painful if you don't like MOBAs or HotS, but it's a relatively quick thing to do.

I don't like MOBAs so 2 hours of playing MOBAs is torture.

Crafted gear can get up to 865, so if you have some spare gold that's the way to go. Once you start seeing routine 835 rewards for world quests, that's as high as they go and they can warforge to fill out the slots you need. Then LFR Nighthold will help you catch up quickly.

Keep your artifact knowledge research rolling, because that's the best power gain for your main and alts.

World quests give you better rewards depending on your item level. But they do stop at a certain level, they won't give more than 835 base. Definitely do emissaries that are going to expire.

Does anyone know of an addon that makes it easier to compare relics for my other specs? As a druid, it is kind of annoying to swap between 4 specs to see which spec that Life relic is good for. Just something simple would be fine, that shows what trait a relic boosts for all of my specs, and ideally would also show the current ilvl relic of that type equipped in each weapon.

So, I've finally swapped over from Vanilla WoW to giving Legion a chance. I'm only about 2 hours in so far (boosted to 100). Are there any suggested guides for Rogues for PvE? None of the links in the OP seem to be related to actual advice for playing your toon or how to prioritize gear.

Thanks! Things are rather different than in Vanilla, so I've got a lot to figure out and catch up on it seems.

Combo points not disappearing after switching targets is still taking getting used to.

Leveling up in PvE you really have two viable options for Rogue.. Outlaw and Sub. Both of the builds will involve Marked for Death. But Outlaw has two things going for it: it has more robust AoE, meaning you aren't automatically screwed if you overpull, and Grappling Hook. The latter is one of the most useful abilities in PvE.

Apparently I'm doing it wrong by using Death From Above over Marked For Death but I find it's a pretty handy (and flashy as fuck) combo spender. It lets you dodge AoE attacks when you go airborne and does some chunky damage at 5 points.

With three always up and relatively few in any zone, it's pretty easy to skip the stupid ones. Though Azsuna does tend to put several in elite areas which can be annoying.

If I wasn't playing a Rogue I wouldn't be able to do some of these Azsuna digsites at all. Stealth gets me through most of a digsite and Vanish saves me from being wrecked by elite mobs I couldn't even think of trying to fight.

I just wish they'd shelve archaeology moving forward. From what I've read archaeology was half of a system, similar to what we have with artifacts now, they didn't fully implement back in WotLK. It wasn't fully realised when it was implemented, they've never really made it a thing worth doing and seem to have little interest properly implementing it now (digsites appearing in world pvp or elite mob areas for example). I mean if this was Warlords of Draenor, it would be like an Archaeology digsite appearing in The Pit or on Socrethar's Rise.

If an artifact appearance wasn't tied to this, I wouldn't be doing it now.

Came across something interesting.

Queued up for a 15 depleted run, got in there and after filling the group, one person dropped. After a while the leader didn't requeue us, so I told them that someone dropped and then he said "we need +buy. buyer for gold" and then he queued us with "WTS 15".

This fucker makes groups with people who want to get a 15 done, kicks one person and then tries to find a buyer...

I've been lamenting (to myself) the annoyance with these unique items received as rewards from daily quests for Monks and Warlocks, because despite being unique (5), they do not stack. I never posted about this grievance because I was sure someone would have told me the devs want you to use them, not to keep them, that's why they make them not stack, because I remember something similar being said back in WoD.
But now I've got this 110 DH and I kill the demon daily and I get these unique items on her too and hers... stack! So the 18 items I have on her only take up 4 slots instead of the 18 they would take on my Monk and Warlock.

I've read that they have no intention to add new stable slots for hunters in 7.2. That makes me pretty sad. I just have no room to even go grab some cool mechanical pet now, let alone have room to go grab the new tamable pets of 7.2. Although that might also mean they'll add some stable slots in 7.2.5 or whatever. Maybe... hopefully.

Why do you have that appearance? Is that an elixir or an armor you can wear?

I'm really enjoying my time with WoW, thinking of getting the expansion. Discipline Priest is sooooo much fun, I've tried the rest of the healing classes but not one has clicked like Disc Priest. I love you priest!

In the Underbelly of Legion Dalaran there is a goblin NPC that can give you Sightless Eyes, a currency used in the Underbelly, and will also transform you into something. Not sure if it's a daily thing or not.

Don't lie to them, I'm a Tuskarr Assassin Rogue.

Yes, it's the Sightless Eye Daily, in exchange for looking ridiculous in zerg pvp you get a currency which can lead to you eventually getting an achievement and a mount.

Regardless of when Patch 7.2 will be deployed on live servers, I think announcing its release date during the Live Developer Q&A on March 23 (topic is Patch 7.2 content) would be a good idea. They have announced release dates for patches in Q&As before.

https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/ne...rsday-march-23

Also, the last stream of the recent Patch 7.2 PTR Twitch initiative is on Saturday, March 25 - 20:00 CET. A release of Patch 7.2 on March 28 would be well aligned with this. Anyhow, I wouldn't be surprised if the release date of the patch is announced tomorrow during the Q&A.

Seems to be a daily, it's up every time I seem to have the urge to go to the underbelly although I haven't been rigorous about doing so. As much as I enjoy the zerg free-for-all pvp, it always ends up just being a couple of heavily farmed druids and demon hunters fighting it out over the chests.

I beat the Brawler's Guild Rank 8 challenge card, Strange Thing. Apparently no one else can see you fight it. You click the mushroom and then you're all alone in an instance. Even the audience disappears. It's not super hard, but it took me about 10 tries because of adjusting to the debuff cycle. I often found myself needing to move and losing DPS because that's also when I have the +Haste buff, and as a melee, that's obviously a problem. If the only uptime I get is shit because otherwise I'm going to be dead, it's not exactly optimal.
