Trion’s team has been closely monitoring the state of PvP balance since the launch of Storm Legion, and yesterday Elrar made a post on the official forums about some upcoming Rogue changes being made to keep that balance in check. The changes mentioned so far will affect Rogues only while engaged in PvP. Here’s what he had to say:

Since the release of Storm Legion we’ve been keeping an eye on PvP and the effectiveness of all the callings. Through our observations, your feedback, and the data we have available we’ve identified some core areas we’re going to improve to make sure Rogues fall back into line with the others.
We’re going to start by reducing the burst damage of a handful of specific abilities and making sure that certain combinations do not allow consistently high burst, survivability, and mobility at the same time. These changes will only apply when engaged in PvP.
The plan is to get the first round of these updates out in the next Hot Fix with any additional changes to follow if required.
Thanks for helping to start and maintain constructive discussions – we’re constantly reading and considering the feedback you provide, your passion for RIFT & PvP is always appreciated!
