    Just FYI

    <blockquote><hr>

    Rogues

    -Abilities that can be used while stealthed, without breaking stealth, can now be cast without breaking Vanish when used at the same time.
    -Cheat Death: A combat log message will now show when this ability activates and now has an animation.. It will now almost always be accurate in displaying the amount of damage done to a rogue when under the effects of Cheat Death.
    -Improved Backstab is now called Puncturing Wounds.
    -Puncturing Wounds increases your critical strike chance with Backstab by 10/20/30%, and the critical strike chance with your Mutilate ability by 5/10/15%.
    -Improved Sprint: This ability will now always remove Entangling Roots.
    -Sap mechanic changed from “Incapacitate” to “Sap”. This will allow more humanoids that were previously immune to Sap to be vulnerable to Sap, but still immune to Gouge. Note that anything that removed Sap previously will still remove Sap after the change.
    -Vanish: This ability will no longer sometimes cause the UI to display Shadowmeld as active when it has been cancelled.

    So the first note- does that mean we can *vanish* and *cheap shot* or *ambush* at the same time? And I'm hoping that the change in sap will help us out in more instances!!
