Fans of Knives: February 27, 2019

Have you noticed that Fans has been coming out every other week…ish? You know why that is? That’s because it seems like EVERYONE has IRL right now and very little is going on.

We do have one thing going on, though. Our Battle for Dazar’alor raid guide has been updated with more details. Check it out:

 

Also, let’s talk about Dratnos. This rogue has rogue PoV boss strats, rogue M+ guides, spec guides, and more. Check. Him. Out. Parts One and Two of his shiny new Outlaw guide are below. Part Three is Coming Soon:

Fans of Knives: February 13, 2019

It’s hard to believe it’s February already! 2019 is flying by with little to report in the rogue news department. Yesterday dealt us a bit of a blow with community news, however…

Despite record profits, Activision Blizzard seems unhappy with its direction and has elected to change course resulting in massive layoffs of non-development people while looking to add to their development teams. This is very sad news for the community; we are losing people who have been wonderful bridges between Blizzard and the fanbase, among them CMs Ythisens. All will be missed whether we know them or not and I’d like to take this opportunity to say Thank you and Best Wishes to all. Our friends at Blizzard Watch have a write up:

 

And now for something more positive: check out this stunning piece that artist Kru created of Anne Stickney’s rogue:

Battle for Dazar’alor, the second raid in Battle for Azeroth, is now live. Tisumi, Loktark, and Seliathan have put together a wonderful raid specific DPS guide for all three specs. Note that much of our initial information comes from PTR testing and educated guesses. This living document will be updated as the authors experience the raid on live first hand, and as updates and changes are applied.

This guide will include boss specific Tips and Tricks. If you figure out something that should be noted, let Tisumi know or respond in the comments. For the past few raids, Kistler has done a wonderful job of curating these for us. Many thanks to him for all the hard work.

They say that no news is good news, but as fans of The Flash know, “…good news is good news. No news is miscommunication.” So let’s communicate.

We don’t usually talk about PvP but today we are making an exception and spotlighting Dalaran Gaming.

Check out these rogue duels – there is one for everyone:

And if you are looking to get started in Rogue PvP he has a guide – brush off that Outlaw spec:

Dalaran isn’t only about PvP. He also has PvE boss and M+ guides, news and speculation, and general content pieces as well as previews of upcoming content, and he streams. Check him out:

Seriously, Rogues, give this fellow a follow.
