The new random battleground feature is quite enjoyable. I’ve been playing a lot more battlegrounds and PvP as a whole since its implementation. However, there are some times when the whole “work as a team” mechanic breaks down.
You see, I had just picked up a Corroded Skeleton Key for my PvP set. For Rogues, especially in arena comps that don’t have a healer, this trinket is invaluable. Popping it before Vanish fixes many of the Vanish “bugs”, such as being knocked out by pets that don’t properly disengage, autoattacks, etc. Not to mention, it allows me to Vanish when I have DoTs or when someone may be able to still target me and quickly reopen. Its really a great Rogue PvP trinket with a shorter cooldown than the Battlemaster’s trinkets. The only advantages to using a Battlemaster Trinket are having additional offensive stats as opposed to stamina, and the additional health you gain from a Battlemaster Trinket lasts the entire duration even if its damaged through (so a healer could essentially “restore” the bonus by healing the extra health back). Regardless, its a great trinket in many situations, and many skilled Rogues use it.
Regardless, I use this trinket all of the time to get off “clean” vanishes. However, some people may not agree.
