Patch 4.1 = Best Ever

The patch notes for 4.1 were released today and I have to say I'm a little surprised. I wasn't expecting them for at least a couple more weeks (then again releasing the patch notes doesn't necessarily mean we're even close to the actual release of the patch). I scrolled down to the rogue changes expecting a few anemic sentences carrying nothing but bad tidings, but it was almost the exact opposite. The changes are awesome! They're almost too good to be true. If this patch was released today it would be literally the best patch for rogues that I can remember.

Justicar Blues

I recently read a comment on WoW Insider talking about the Justicar/Conquerer, lamenting the sheer grindiness of the achievement. For those who don't know this is an achievement you get for reaching exalted with each BG faction, it grants a title, and it's no small task. Warsong Gulch is the most difficult rep of all as the only way to get reputation with the Silverwing Sentinals/Warsong Outriders is to cap the flag. Considering in some games your team may not even cap at all this can be a pretty laborous process...and it should stay that way.

A Rogue's Guide to Cataclysm Reputations

Cataclysm has predictably brought a slew of new reputations, and every single one of them offers something rogueish, but that doesn't mean they're all equal. I'd suggest first focusing on those that grant rewards at honored and revered as the grind from revered to exalted can be lengthy. Also, a faction's quests can take you pretty far (to midway honored or even revered), which is nice because you'll be able to grab easy gear to up your ilvl. Now let's take an in-depth look at these reputations so you can make an informed decision about which one you should focus on instead of blindly repping up the first faction who happens to clap their tabard around you.
