Change your weapon enchant - use haste one;

Change your 2nd trinket when possible;

Glyph of Deadly Momentum is not that good for raiding, switch for Energy;

Glyph of Stealth is useless in a raid environment - put Disappearance;

Give preference using Elusiveness, it can help you a lot on overall damage. Once you proc Cheat Death, if you're in a bad spot, it's instagib;

 

As for logs:

 

Revealing Strike uptime is low;

SnD uptime is low;

Vanish usage is low;

Adrenaline Rush should be used nearly on cooldown all times, and right AFTER Killing Spree;

No Preparation usage;

Lack of Prepot and pot @ combat.

 

Things to focus for now - worry about these in order:

 

- Stay calm and setup a tracking interface - read this thread;

- Increase Revealing Strike and SnD max uptime;

- Use Adrenaline Rush more often - casts should be near Killing Spree cast quantity;

- Use Vanish more often (and switch the Stealth glyph for the Disappearance one - it'll ensure you to have it available every 1 min for a quick free Ambush);

- Use a pot before pull and on your next heavy damaging phase (I.E. Deep Insight Killing Spree, Adrenaline Rush, Hero and so);

- Weave in Preparation usage after first Vanish;

 

And for last but not least important - have fun.

Thank you for fast response!

 

One question - Glyph of Blade furry.... Should i change to that glyph at fights, when are many mobs?

 

@lipsinch, how i can contact with you in game, if there is possibility? :)

That glyph isn't useful. It'd only be useful if you needed to slow a big quantity of adds for a mechanic or so (which is completely unlikely to happen for a good while)

 

As for you gear, I just mentioned about your weapon and trinket. I'm no expert on gear, so I can give you only the basic info towards that. =l

I disagree on Glyph of Deadly Momentum for AoE fights with adds that die off. It can keep your SnD up without having to cast it very many times. But it's only good on fights like Beastlord, Thogar, etc. My 3rd glyph changes depending on the fight (Energy and Disappearance are always used). It will change between Deadly Momentum, Feint, Sprint, and Smoke Bomb or Recovery only if healers need help.

 

For talents, I have personally gone for Cheat Death over Elusiveness so far this expansion and it saves me all the time from things a buffed Feint might not. Also, from your current spec, I would def drop Cloak & Dagger for Shadowstep for all situations.

 

The only additional thing I will mention for DPS rotation (make sure to get comfortable doing the things lipsinch mentions first) is lining up KS, AR, and/or Ambush with Deep Insight whenever it makes sense. This can be a lot more difficult to do, but usually one of them can be used during Deep Insight. Usually using two Ambushes during my first Deep Insight will delay the second one just enough to fit KS into it.

It only procs if you get the killing blow, and isn't reliable. I would recommend taking a glyph you'll get more use out of, such as CoS

Cheat Death should be taken over Elusiveness only when you can cheese a mechanic with it. Else, the situations that proc it off will probably kill you next, so it's not really reliable. Elusiveness becomes more efficient because paired with other CDs (or even alone) it can mitigate A LOT of damage for almost nothing.

The other situation is if you're pugging a fight like Koragh, and you need to make sure that none of the randoms screw something up and kill you. It's a safety net; passively there, but doesn't actually help you perform better

 

The flip side of that is you can't do much with Cheat Death - you can Feint and help with lots of mechanics, such as the Acid Torrent on Oregorger

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Howdy,
      I was going to submit a bug report in game, but I thought I'd check here to see if this really is a bug, or if I just don't understand how the ability is supposed to work. Here's what I planned to submit:
      outlaw rogue ability: Between the Eyes, is not correctly applying the 4x damage increase on critical strikes per the tooltip listed damage for each combo point, nor is it appropriately applying any of the bonus damage modifiers: prey on the weak and ghostly strike. If using Deeper Strategem talent, it appears to be applying 4x damage based on the 5th combo point tooltip, but again, the modifiers:ghostly strike and prey on the weak are not applying. 
      Per the tooltip, at 6 combo points, I should do 200,695 damage, 5 combo points would be 167,470 damage. While testing this on a training dummy, with Ghostly Strike and Prey on the Weak applied, with Deeper Strategem talented, using 6 combo points, I see a critical strike (100% chance from legendary shoulders) of 682,357. Unless my math is horribly mistaken, that should be a critical strike for 963,336:
      200,695 x 4 x (100% + 10% + 10%)
       
      This is what I do:
      Stand behind dummy, so nothing is blocked, build up 6 combo points, apply Ghostly strike, either vanish, or leave combat and enter stealth, use Cheap Shot, then use Between the Eyes

      So I'm confused on what to do at this point.. I'm at 30% crit with the shoulders equip and 120% mastery. Should I be stacking mastery now and not worrying about crit since I get 100% off start? I also have the bracers? Also since the burst is for 6 seconds I don't know what I should do for a opener anymore.. Any suggestions?

      Hey all, I apologize if this is common knowledge, but my rogue is one of my alts and I don't know as much about the class as I'd like. I used to play outlaw just fine, but I'm interested in a strong spec that isn't so RNG dependent. I'm a bit confused as to how much mastery is needed to pull off a poison build vs a bleed a build. The talent guide says to go for poisons if you have a mastery-heavy build. What constitutes a lot of mastery? My rogue is wearing ilvl 847 with 27.79% crit, 7.83% haste, 116.2% mastery, 3.6/1.8% versatility. That is based on recommendations from Ask Mr. Robot. I primarily run mythics and I would like recommendations on the best tier 1 and 6 talent suggestions.

      With the huge upcoming nerfs to BtE (crit multiplier removed) and greenskins wrists (400% to 300% damage), i am wondering if the effect will still be worth using in 7.1.5, or whether or not they will become a glorified stat stick. With the slight buff to ghostly strike also, it seems they may become useless. Does anyone have any info / run any sims on the issue. On a side note, with the single target buffs to outlaw is it going to be a competitive spec, and will slice and dice overtake roll the bones to give the spec more consistency (although make it far more boring).
