it is stronger, but try this scenario
99 yul vs 99 dagger. Same stun equipment, no oe's bows/dagger, not using ultimate skills.
yul will first stun you (this lands a lot more nowadays) and then use 3-4 skills. The half kills from yuls land MORE than daggers. The first two hits and my CP is gone. The next one is likely to skill crit for 10-13k damage. aka half of my hp. All the while i spam stabs, and maybe if im lucky 1 will crit/half kill. The dps output by yuls are now insane while ours did not change that much.
Now vs Wynn, its the same situation
due to our dependency on crit damage jewels, most rogues are forced to use aq/baium/oly ring and a combination of frint/zaken/coc shock for the extra boost in stun and stun resist. That means you have GARBAGE mdef. Yes lucky/rich rogues will have epics, but once again in this update the scaling is different. The invoke nukes are hitting me for 7-8k and crit for 14. The marks are super fast casting and their reuse is insanely fast as well. All the while our stabs have not scaled to the same degree. I hit the summoner 2-3k with transfer pain on.
There are some good news:
-Healers die quite quick to our rapid succession of stabs
-we have a bit more muscle to face off knights, but still not a match up any rogue is looking forward to.
-iss's were never a real big issue
