Maybe I'm just stupid but I can't seem to understand the difference in the three Rogue specs. I have a 90 Rogue and don't know the difference in the specs and what exactly they do. I chose Combat at start and have stayed with it. But what does Combat mean and how does it differ from other two specs?
Combat is sort of the swashbuckler spec for rogues -- you're in your enemy's face a lot, you have some survivability options, you're not necessarily reliant on stealth. Assassination is a bit sneakier and involves poisons and positioning. Subtlety focuses heavily on stealth and subterfuge.
Why is Garrosh not Sha-corrupted now? When we defeated him, we didn't really "purge" him or destroy the Heart, so why is he back to normal?
Garrosh drained the heart to fuel his attacks, then we beat the Sha out of him, literally. There's no more Y'Shaarj power to be had.
How do SoO Normal raid lockouts work? Say I join a pug earlier in the week and clear the first four bosses. Can I join any group that's start at boss five or later regardless of what the leader of the first raid ID does? Or is my personal progress locked to that raid ID? Furthermore, if I clear the first four bosses in the pug, can I start my own raid later on starting at boss five?
The reason I ask is that our 1-night group would like to start somewhere in Wing 2 or at the start of Wing 3---not on Thok, where we ended during our last raid. I'm wondering if there's a simple way to accomplish this.
You only get locked to a specific ID on heroic mode; any other mode, you can just pick up where you left off. The game remembers your progress and yours alone.
