Short post here, but after reading Jessica's reply on my mail, I have decided to take Skinning and Herbalism on my Forsaken rogue when I revive him from the dead (I deleted him a few months ago). At 80 I will switch to Alchemy. My Death Knight bank alt will be going Inscription and Enchanting, so I can make my own enchants and glyphs.
This also means that I will have Lifeblood and Master of Anatomy at my disposal while leveling. Free crit and heal, hooray !
Also, the blue tracker of MMO-Champion had some insight in what Blizzard may have in store for us:
Hunger for Blood
We think it can be a little annoying to try to keep it up all the time. We have a plan to make it a little more usable and interesting (and buff rogues in PvE at the same time). (Source)
Do you plan to buff the Combat talent tree?
Assassination and rogue DPS in PvE
Assassination is doing too much damage relative to other rogues. Rogues as a whole are still too low in PvE and we have plans to bring them up. (Source)
Aside from a general PvE buff for us, it will be interesting to see how they plan to change Hunger for Blood.
Also, happy lunar festival !
