Alright, so Patch 5.1 didn’t prove to be the savior that many sadfaced rogues across Azeroth hoped for. Patch 5.2, though: That one tenth could make all the difference.
Or not. Either way, change is a’comin.
Two tweets from Ghostcrawler in the past few days suggest a pretty substantial talent shake-up may be imminent in the next patch:
@SvelteKumquat I wasn't commenting on RvD, but on comparing one ability in a vacuum to another. R talents in 5.2 prob have the most changes.—

@evangel666777 Would rather you just try them and you tell us. Always prudent to avoid the risk of overhype.—

Absolutely no specifics have been offered yet regarding rogues (either in these tweets or elsewhere), but the fact that GC even feels comfortable saying stuff like this suggests we’re getting pretty close now to the first unveiling of the next noteworthy set of incoming class (and game) changes. I can already hear collective breaths being sucked in. Will they soon yield exhalations of glee or disgust? Stay tuned.
EQUALLY VAGUE UPDATE 12/21:
This is from Blizz Community Manager Daxxarri, as the crew over there heads into its holiday break:
@SvelteKumquat Well... a lot is changing right now. I'll just say two things: "I'm excited" and "More information in January."—
