April Fools: Rogue

I confess. I love Blizzard’s tongue in cheek April Fools offerings. 

Via WoW Insider this morning, we were shown the 6.0 Warlords of Draenor “official” patch notes, which included this section for rogues:


  • Rogue specializations have been renamed to better encapsulate the skills and gameplay they represent.

  • Assassination is now known as “Stabby”

  • Combat is now known as “Pokey”

  • Subtlety is now known as “Shanky”

  • To help resolve spelling issues once and for all, Rogues have been renamed to Blush.

  • Blush can once again use Bucklers!

  • Blush no longer have access to the ability Swash, but at least they can still Buckle.

  • Fan of Knives now also makes your family kind of worried about you.

  • Cloak and Dagger continues to remind you of that Dabney Coleman movie from the 80s with the old couple that really freaked you out.

I’m so proud to be a member of the blush class for a 9th year! Let’s have a competition to see who is the next Covergirl? *wink* There are some things that Blizzard does really well to increase the fun factor in their gaming experiences, and I really feel this is one of them.
