Fans of Knives: November 13, 2019

Aaaand Fans goes monthly. That’s ok, when things pick up, so will we. So what has happened in the last month? BlizzCon, that’s what. Next expansion announcement. And a few juicy details.

So Shadowlands. Life, death and all that. But what does that mean for rogues? Brian Holinka talked about a few things that we will see. He mentioned that they feel that in Legion classes and specs got somewhat lost despite the intention to spotlight them, but in Shadowlands, emphasis will be on class over spec. A couple of specifically rogue items:

  • Poisons are going back to being classwide
  • Shiv is coming back classwide

So Legion saw us defined into assassins, pirates, and ninjas. Shadowlands sounds like it will see us going back to being rogues first and sharing in some iconic abilities that may have been removed from us in the last couple of expansions. It will be exciting to see how that plays out.

In other news, for Classic rogues, Rokman of Wowhead has a BiS gear guide for us:
