High End Raiding Spec Switching Combat/Sub

2 posts in this topic

So far this xpac I have been raiding combat, but as I have joined a new hardcore guild it looks like I will need to rotate between Sub and Combat depending on boss to maximize my DPS.

 

Most of my gear is heroic haste gear from Highmaul. The new gear in BRF is more specialized for Sub. My question is how top rogues change gear per spec. Do you have two sets of gear with multistrike enchants on one and haste enchants on other? If I am going to switch back and forth with one gearset, should I enchant multistrike on everything since it is at least the second best stat for Sub while haste is the worst stat for Sub?

Also, do top raiders change specs even for trash? Ex, trash mobs need AOE so you take the time to switch to combat for trash, then back to Sub if it's a single target boss fight?

 

Any advice would be great! Thanks in advance!

Yes, As you get more gear, you'll set up 2 different sets with one for each set. For progression though, I doubt you'll be seeing enough gear to allow yourself to do that

 

If you're going to min/max, Multistrike is probably best. Double check your weapon enchants on Shadowcraft though, since you won't have the same ones for Combat and Sub

      I hereby present you with the truth of the Bash Barbarian.                Email me any questions regarding D3, not my own snake or my GF's nudes.
                                                                                                                              On: danhibikisan@gmail.com           (For Gear details see video below)
      Yes, YOU can clear GR70 and more with a Bash Barbarian, 3 25+ gems and NO augments without too much of a hassle.
      "But I tried and I failed, HOW DID YOU DO IT?!"  You might ask.
      Well Timmy, this is it:
      Gear wise, the stuff you need, although in my video you will notice that I did not even have the best stuff YET, so it is not a big thing until later. Hence this is a good build considering the "lack" of good gear "needed" versus high GR clearance.
      I found that the most important thing is survival, because I solely play on Hardcore and yes, much like a boss.
      I have a GF, a job, studies, two snakes and a big interest in real instruments like the electric guitar or the piano, notice how I mentioned "real". Why is this important to notice? Not the instruments Timmy, but my other hobbies? (GF included)
      It is important because I do not have all the time in the world, I do not find any joy in "grinding" stuff out or doing "cookie-cutter" builds that everyone does because everyone does them.
       
      TLDR: (Still quite long mind you[but packed with more info per word{this is how you use all these btw}])
      How: You need large packs of monsters *shocker*, preferably large monsters because they give more progress, the more "small" monsters you attract the longer you should wait to engage until you have found a sufficient amount of large monsters or non-flighty elites. This depends on your map-layout: if it has labyrinth-style layout simply run to next map asap and only stop if you encounter a clutter of elite packs; The type of monsters also the decision to train them or if skelesnores, discard them, if phantasm (where the f*** did my 10 elite pack go) and similar stuff.
      WHY: You will GIBB small monsters in groups, this is bad because it gives little progress and a lot of big leftovers, this is why you want the many small monsters in groups with as many big monsters/elites as you can find since Battle Rage: Bloodshed has the possibility of killing the tough guys almost as fast as a hundred spiderlings on one pixel.
      IF: The big guys/elites don't die in the first gathering of trained mobs, just keep training them, unless they are melting to your damage it is more effecient to keep stacking pack after pack until you can almost gibb those pesky porkchoppers, just be careful with effect-stacking elites like...

      Are you a competitive player looking to be part of the uprising of a hardcore PVE guild?
      The guild is located on Tarren Mill. 
      I'm currently looking for very ambitious players to become part of a fresh team, who hunger for progress. 
      Listed, is a few requirements.
      Your thirst for progression knows no bounds, raiding 5 days a week during progress sounds natural and is a must if you want to be among the top players. Wiping only gives you motivation to try even harder, you don't care that your repair bill is getting close to 5 digits. Even though you spend a lot of time mastering your own class and role, you realize that it's useless without proper teamwork. You believe that skill can be taught, but your loyalty and persistence is what makes you stand out from the rest. You can't believe that some people actually have the nerve to show up late to raids, logging in 30 minutes prior to make sure that everything is in order, flasks, food, augment runes and potions, is something that you take for granted. You're at least 18 years old. Things that will give you an even higher chance to make the cut.
      You have previous experience of high tier raiding, anything from an early clear of ICC10HC to a Cutting Edge achievement is a good indication that you have ambitions. Your gear is top of the line, the other 95% of the players receives a minor reality complex when you apply to their groups. You're a social fella, besides raiding, you want to be in a guild for the sake of a community, why do dungeons with randoms when you have a bunch of guildies online? If you feel like I've just described you, please don't hesitate to drop your BattleTag here and I'll contact you! 
      (Our raidtimes are scheduled to be Sunday->Thursday 19.00->00.00 Server-Time during progress and 3 days per week during farm, so everyone gets some space to breathe.)

      Hi guys,
      First of all, sorry about my bad english, but i'll try to write well here.

      So right now I play Sub as my main spec. I mained outlaw for the first week or so of Legion and honestly I hated sub (not sure why) but after I tried it, it is now my preferred spec among the 3. I know that sub scales the best with gear and is the most superior spec around 870ilv too. I never see sub in pve and usually outlaw/sin mainly (for mythic+ and raids) so I was wondering if I am doing anything wrong?
      Armoury: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormscale/Dyldoe/simple
      For my talents, I use weaponmaster as it is very good for aoe pulls (I can pull about 400k dps on 3-4 targets) then followed by the traditional talents for pve sub (I go master of subtlety for raids) 
      I know my stats are not the best for sub as I need to get more mastery/vers rather than haste (crit is still pretty good if i'm correct)
      I couldn't spec into Akaari's Soul as it breaks cc in pvp with means I loose a hefty amount of dps which is very annoying and I am debating to repsec into it and put up with it in pvp for the extra dps increase.
      My weapon pathing looks like this: https://gyazo.com/61e1d2ba599db43cb2faeee306c72e81
      I seem to be doing everything correctly for dps but I do about 250-300k dps on single target and stays about 200k the whole time. Sometimes can go up to 350-400k depending on how smooth the fight goes but if it's anything to do with my weapon/talents/ilv/stats and even playstyle then please let me know, thanks!
       
      Edit: I have respecced my weapon to now look like this: https://gyazo.com/e972f73591090f9895e097d9782e3035 
      I should be doing better now ^^ Appreciate the help
