Stealth is Awesome! *sneak sneak sneak*
Corollary: You must actually hit “Stealth” to sneak past things. Even really dumb looking Gnolls. And even then sometimes stuff will roll to disbelieve, and win. Like the entirety of Scarlet Monastery Cathedral…
Vanish is Awesome! *bamf* …except when it’s on cooldown.
Corollary: Vanish is always on cooldown when you accidentally pull 5 murlocs at once.
There’s a good bit of low level Rogue leather, if you’re willing to scout around to find it. Some of it is even black!
Corollary: The rest of it is really, really ugly. And if it’s on the Auction House, it’ll be both really ugly and three times as expensive as everything else.
Interrogator Vishas will Rip the Secrets from your Flesh.
Corollary: He will do so without the use of his Torturing Poker, as he seems to have lost it. Or at least, I can’t find it after I kill him.
There are a good number of easily accessible Rogue talents for leveling.
Corollary: None of them are in the same tree. As such, your spec will look like it was put together by an arithmetically challenged primate.
Being a Rogue is a good bit similar to being a Feral Druid.
Corollary: Except the part with the heals and the removing poisons. Oh, and that poison is too high level for your anti-venom.
Going back through my favorite low level zones is fun, especially with a horse at level 20. It’s even been possible to level primarily in Defias and Syndicate areas (for in-character reasons).
Corollary: The Legend of Stalvan is still a pain in the ass. Oh, and if you level entirely in Eastern Kingdoms zones, getting to Desolace to do one of two Alliance-side Scarlet Monastery quests is a pain in the ass too.
I imagine as I get through the next 30+ levels, I will learn much, much more…
All in all, Roguery is a lot of fun, and Annata is a lot of fun too. It’s been nice to have a project when not working on other things (like getting stuff ready for Cataclysm and going on random 10 man runs for nerd points achievements), and doubly nice when the in-game stuff helps with the ficlets that I’ve been writing!
Do you all have any projects running right now?
