First off, I totally got my AQ battle tank mount. Sure it is not the black one I have envied for years, but it will do just fine. Every time I am in a battleground, or running around Tol Barad doing dailies I get at least one person asking about it. And thats good. Because I'm an attention whore who will do anything for love, even if it is virtual love.
And yes, I went goblin! I took all the screenshots when I got my Quraji battle tank before the change, so that is a pretty major change in my (now tiny) little rogue world. I absolutely love being a goblin. The stealth animation itself is a force to be reckoned with. I cannot wait till patch 4.1 and see how the changes to going stealth play out. It is certainly an exciting day to be a goblin rogue. I also now have a rocket belt, which is a huge help to me. Having what I am calling a "rogue charge" is amazing help, especially against classes like mages and hunters. It almost works like an extra vanish. Getting the timing right has been a fun little experiment. It can be a little difficult timing and placing the jump right, but when it works, it is amazing. It is so much fun when hunters are down to their last sliver of health, they like to trap/scatter shot/disengage and try to run off, feign death and then bandage. Then I trinket, pop my rocket belt and get that last stabby stab off. Game over.
The same with mages. I'm usually alert enough not to get kited, but every once in a while in the heat of battle, I'll loose track and find myself running towards someone when sprint is on cool down. With mages, I'm as good as dead. Having this extra tool has helped me so much, it is well worth the $25.
Also another tactic that I had not really thought about until someone mentioned it is using rocket belt as a disengage. Using it to get away from melee classes or pets can be a life saver and an overall great tactic. While someone is (attempting) to kite me with their pet attacking me, it is wonderful to stab their pet a few times, pop smoke bomb, get my recoup up, get my full 5 combo points, then redirect to their player, pop my "rogue charge" and hit them with a quick kidney shot.
God I love being a rogue.
You'll also notice a slight change to the color scheme. I figured since my gear and mount matches, the title should as well. I also decided that changing the blog name was a good idea considering "Rogues do it from behind" was becoming far too popular. I've seem guilds from darn near every server in our battlegroup with that name. It's played out.
