The moved post:
And as for the Rogue and GETINDARE... You know what, I'm sort of dreading the rather warranted nerf because it was flavour of the week for ages. God knows how many people are relying on it out there, and if the backlash after the Monk nerfs is any indicator then I'm really hesitant to push the issue. Rogue isn't just broken in-dungeon, he's also off the charts as far as kingdom development goes - he unlocks Gorgons, Gloves Of Midas and is a prerequisite for TT (who spawns in the Southern Swamp once you unlock EM and the Rogue). And Rogue Silver is really, really easy with dodge prediction on GETINDARE. He probably has quite a few fans...
I mean, Rogue probably needs a subtle rework, something like, +10% damage every 2 levels starting with 1 as bonus with a similar anti-scaling mech for his health, to make him become more of a glass cannon as he gains levels. I'm not even sure about the % based nature of his attack bonus. Once upon a time base damage was rare, these days it seems it's the other way around. GETINDARE probably needs a cost increse, losing the dodge prediction or both. And the only thing I can come up with for the kingdom development is moving the Gloves of Midas to the Thief Silver and the Balanced Dagger to the Rogue Silver, with the lampshade of "You were looking for the gloves but it turns out some damned thief beat you to it. Resolute not to leave emptyhanded, you settle for a swanky dagger which fit's your approach to lawbreaking rather more than fancy winterwear".
But on the other hand, what I did up there (and what you (*Avatar) did multiple times insanely fast) is a case of "adjusted for VICIOUS romping in EASY". I mean, you're supposed and capable of killing lvl 10's at lvl 4 - using a mapfull of resources to kill one lvl 10 guy at lvl 1 with much of the same tools is not all that hard. I'm not sure it would work against particular HARD bosses, allthough posting some wins of that nature might ring a few bells in south africa.
I'll move the picture over here later, and I'm considering making a video of the Rogue Silver GETINDARE shannenigans because I'd like to try doing them again for fun. Anyway, all of this might be an adressable issue, blah, blah, it's all ther, have at it...
(and ther's also bits and pieces of relevant discussion I might copy/move from the foo strats thread, and some other stuff)
DISCLAIMER 2: I'm also aware that making a thread might be redundant and that the dev's are probably well aware of it, I'm just tired of stuff related to this sneaking into every post I make and I'd just like a receptacle for all things Rogue and GETINDARE related. Other expirienced players have come to about the same conclusions, and just having it in one place might be a good idea, and something could even be done about it at this late hour (but judging from no codex ETA, and all the artwork and interface stuff that needs to get done, it's probably not to late even for a firm adressal of this particular issue).
