Rogue Bug Fixes
Cloak of Shadows now functions properly to protect the rogue from the following boss and creature abilities: Gravity Well (Terrastra, The Bastion of Twilight), Burning Corruption (Crimsonborne Seer, Grim Batol), Lava Fissure (Slabhide, The Stonecore), Geyser (Lady Naz’jar, Throne of the Tides), Noxious Mire (Naz’jar Sentinel, Throne of the Tides).
Cheat Death was activating by a warlock’s Chaos Bolt but not working. Chaos Bolt will still trigger Cheat Death, but will not kill the rogue.
Eviscerate was showing reduced energy cost at low levels, even though the cost should remain 35 energy. This has been corrected.
Feint now correctly reduces Quake damage from Rom’ogg Bonecrusher (Blackrock Caverns).
The Honor Among Thieves buff icon is now correctly displayed for the rogue, and not just for the rogue’s party members.
Ruthlessness has the correct chance to proc when Envenom is used.
Blade Flurry’s tooltip is now correctly augmented by Glyph of Blade Flurry.
The Hemorrhage tooltip is now correctly updated to reflect the bleed effect when Glyph of Hemorrhage is applied.
The Preparation tooltip is now augmented by Glyph of Preparation.
