Assassination DPS to the MAX. Looking for tips!

4 posts in this topic

Hello fellow rogues :-) 

 

I love playing Assassination, and i love playing my game 100% ..

 

I would like to get 100% out of this spec. And thats why i wrote this thread. I will like to hear your guys view on this!

 

Here is my char: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ravencrest/Equin%C3%B6x/simple

 

1. Stats

 

I know about Icy Veins stat priority. Which puts Mastery = Crit. But suggest that you go full mastery on Enchants and Gems, when you have 4th set bonus. But on the warlogs, i see a lot of rogues, which use different enchants and gems. Some use Mastery on everything, some use Crit on everything, some mix it... and some even use Multistrike. 

I am looking for the BEST way to go. What is your take on this? And feel free to comment on my chars setup.

 

2. Rotation

 

- Refresh Rupture, when it's under 7.2 seconds left. 

- Refresh Envenom, when it's under 1.8 seconds left. 

 

To get maximum DPS, i guess you have to pool energy to around 60+, before you cast your Envenom – so you have energy to cast a lot of Mutilate/Dispatchs, so they benefit from the Envenom buff – correct? 

If that's correct, i often get into a dilemma. I start capping combo points. 

 

But what is best for my DPS?

 

1. Keep casting Mutilate/Dispatch so they benefit from the Envenom buff, even though i get combo point capped?

 

2. Or should i cast Envenom to use these combo points, even though i will clip my Envenom buff?

 

 

Please feel free to give me your input, for maximizing my Assassination DPS, it might be something i haven't even asked about :-)...

Cast Envenom - overlapping the buff isn't really a large dps loss

So even though the buff is over 1.8, then its: Envenom > Mutilate/Dispatch ?

Yeah it's less of a loss to overlap the buff than it is to waste cp's

      now ive tried diffrent ways of doing my rotation but i still cant seem to "hold it up" i am high up at start...til like 30-60sec into the fight then i start falling behind:(

      So iam willing to give out 1 token to whom ever can give me a reasonable, understandable solution that works for me
      (i know i didnt optimize my trueshot, prepots etc etc) But the problem is after trueshot and my troll racial is "over" i start falling:(
      this is what i wanna figure out, ive tried to do Aimed and then barrage/windburst etc but i seem to starve on focus, ive tried the 2aimed then some cd's but seems i fall behind on Aimedshot dmg then:(

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=30&type=damage-done&source=153          <----Log of the actuall kill
      here i got run over, but still my numbers are abysmal  (7% pref(

      here is the same rotation but a wipe  (29% pref)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=28&type=damage-done&source=153 
       
      another wipe, same rotation but only 9% pref
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=27&type=damage-done&source=153 

      So even with the same rotation (atleast i think and feel like i do the same) i can go from 7% pref to 29% pref, i know alot of dmg is RNG but i cant be THAT Unlucky
      id say my avg preformance is about 10% so iam not unlucky iam sucky:(
      but i need to understand what i need to work on:( rotation i know...but is it as simple as to get the azortian down to the perfection?
      cause ive seen other hunters do my "get as many aimedshot as possible into vuln phase" do like 98% pref...but when i do it i fall down to 9.8:)

      tnx for any input and help

      and ill be more then willing to hand out a token for a guide/suggestion that actually works for me
