Ravenholdt Roundtable: Rogue PvP in Season 16 (Patch 6.0.3)

In our second Ravenholdt Roundtable, Haileaus welcomes Ayume and Nessper, a pair of experienced and decorated PvP rogues, to talk about the current state of competitive PvP for the rogue class in WoW’s Season 16 — a.k.a. Warlords of Draenor Patch 6.0.3.

In this 37-minute podcast, Ayume and Nessper talk about:

  • The best — and not-so-best — arena partners (comps) for rogues at the moment (starting at 7:43)
  • How rogue PvP strategy has shifted in the Warlords of Draenor expansion (starting at 12:28)
  • How each rogue spec is doing in arena — and why Combat in particular looks so strong (starting at 15:01)
  • The value rogues currently bring to rated battlegrounds — and why Subtlety can especially shine (starting at 23:12)
  • The best way to murder a hunter (starting at 25:51)
  • Why Retribution paladins and death knights are so frustrating to play against (starting at 27:04)
  • The overall direction of PvP in WoW, and how rogues fit into it (starting at 32:07)
  • Advice on how to get better at rogue PvP (starting at 35:30)
