Please give gouge back. I dont care how it plays with bleeds and all that. Its a great spell. Its fun. It provides an interrupt. Dont worry about how it is with bleeds on assasination. Let me manage that. Please give gouge back so I can play the rogue class again.
Yeppers make Rogues whole again. Giving back Sub and Assassination Gouge back would be a great accomplishment for the great unpruner.
Mafic the GougeMan always watchful! Thank you for your duty!
They broke wow when they got rid of talent trees
Really they did, IMO they busted wow in Cataclysm with the forced talent trees and “assigned” abilities. That kinda jacked up the whole game and birthed the whole “Spec-identity” BS that seems to be the prevailing school of thought now days.
I liked it much better when we were all just ROGUES.
Hot take: The completely uncontested melee king of CC doesn’t really need more of it. The amount of time we can lock a target down is pretty absurd as it is.
I 100% disagree with your post. I played rogue and gouge was a staple part of it. Without gouge I dont think I would have stuck with the rogue class. And I can’t play it now without gouge.
Kind of extreme but alright. Any utilities you’re willing to give up so we can have yet another CC besides sap, blind, cheap shot, kidney shot, and garrote silence (sin), shadowy duel (pseudo-CC for sub)?
Perhaps we should give up our only heal to get it back. It’s not like we had crimson vial or recuperate back when gauge was baseline.
Something seem a bit wrong with your statement.
Actually we did have Recuperate and Gouge at the same time and they were both baseline.
We also had baseline abilities for all 3 specs
Mind Numbing Poison
Slice and Dice
Fan of Knives
Shroud of Concealment
I detect you are wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong.
Yeah this guys totally wrong. We dont need to give up anything, why are you trying to gimp us?
We had gouge before, we need it back. And we need all of these abilities back. Taking these abilities away or pruning it as you guys call it was the worst thing you could do to the rogue class. This class needs those things. Rogue is already a very simple class. And to remove all that stuff just made the class a lot worse.
Yeppers Gouge can come back and increase in the CD would be logical.
You’re not getting all of your abilities back. Wait for classic tbc.
Poisons and SND are back. Gouge will be back…just have to be consistent.
Good attitude! A lot of non-rogues and Legion babies chiming in arguing against Gouge, but we can’t let them distract or deter us from our goal. Gouge MUST come back for the sake of the feel and flavor of the class. Slap a bigger cooldown on it, increase the energy cost, reduce its duration a little… whatever they need to do to “balance it in today’s meta”… just bring it back!
I love how CATA sub rogue played but I do agree forced specs was garbage
GIVE BACK GOUGE
This aged like fine wine
Keeping it real.
Now, we have to fight for Hemo to return.
Is that even a good ability? My classic rogue is level 40. I tried subtlety then switched to combat. Mind you thisnis classic vanilla not wotlk
Yes, if you’re on a PvP server or like PvP at all, learn to gouge → restealth and give your enemies a classic feeling of terror.
Well the fact we get another CC in our belt is saying something, even if it is an ability we once had. The only problem i see with it is if it doesnt remove all dots or our own dots. Then we’ll have to consider how we’re going to even use it, and moreso if gouge can proc poisons itself.
