Patch 4.1 - Rogue Changes

Well, it's like a dream saying this but it looks like Rogues are getting some more love in Patch 4.1! Here are the changes to rogues in Patch 4.1 so far:

  • Recuperate base effect now heals 3% per tick, up from 2%.
  • Stealth base cooldown has been reduced to 4 seconds, down from 10, and the movement penalty from being in Stealth has been removed.
  • Tricks of the Trade now has a 100-yard range, up from 20.
  • Improved Recuperate now adds 0.5%/1% to the health restoration effect of Recuperate, down from 1%/2%.
  • Nightstalker now reduces the cooldown of Stealth by 2/4 seconds, and instead of negating the movement penalty from Stealth, it adds a 5/10% movement speed bonus (stacking with other effects) while Stealthed.
Apart from the Recuperate 'nerf' the other 'buffs' are a godsend. Tricks of the Trade having its range increased from 20 to 100 yards is so unbelievably awesome it's not funny! God it's a pain to have to Tricks the tank at the start of the fight and then get in to position! No more my friends, no more!
