We’ve got two directly rogue-related bug squishings to note from today’s new batch of official Patch 5.2 hotfixes.
The first pertains to the final (regular-mode) boss fight in the new raid tier:
Fixed an issue where damage from Lei Shen’s Crashing Thunder, Lightning Whip, Overcharge and Discharged Energy was not being reduced by Feint.
So, yknow, that’s good.
Meanwhile, in news pertaining to the fantasyland within fantasyland, we have this:
Darkmoon Whistle should no longer cause other players to drop out of stealth.
The whistle — which is a specially made in-game item for people want to annoy people around them, but not quite as much as people who carry around Toy Train Sets — turned out to have a little quirk that made them unexpectedly useful for rooting out rogues in virtually all PvP settings, apparently including rated battlegrounds. Well, until today.
Not to toot my own horn, but I, uh… um… hm. Whatever that joke was gonna be, it clearly ain’t happening. Probably for the best.
