Help my DPS? - Sub Rogue-

9 posts in this topic

Hey again, Could you guys look through these logs? i still think my dps is way lower than it should be. However i have a feeling that the missing tier 4 pieces and no class trinket has a huge effect.

 

let me know what you think:

In general:

 

Need to use more Vanish. Don't be afraid of using it. Just don't blow it out of blue when you'll be using another CD that applies FW (Vanish is used as a mini Shadow Dance, to trigger FW - have you macro'd it to Shadow Dance? If you did, unbind that right now!)

Use more Premeditation

Increase Rupture uptime to at least ~95% constant

Using Crimson Tempest on a ST situation is not necessary

Using FoK in a ST situation is not necessary (only use it when you can cleave something to gather more CPs)

 

I suggest you keep drilling your rotation on a dummy and set up trackers. It'll help you immensely. =)

I am trying to line vanish up with shadowdance for the 30% dmg bonus (tier set bonus) but because i dont have the full tier set it doesnt line up properly. Should i just use it whenever its ready? instead of for example wait 30 sec to get it to line up with shadowdance?

I don't think you should line up and instead use for maintenance of the FW. Perhaps I may be wrong on this one, but that's how I'd play - spreading higher damage over time instead doing a "super burst" every 1m30s.

 

Remember, Vanish is a mini SDance, you can pull some "decent" DPS in that small window and a bit more thereafter.

 

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong on this one. I haven't played with those new sets so I don't have the feel of the practice - mostly theory.

Alright so the only timings that I have memorized are the first 3, so I'll talk about those for a second then put the rule for Vanish use at the end

 

Vanish 1: Just before the pull, in conjunction with SR and SD.

 

Vanish 2: Prep right before (1.5s) SD ends, so you have the energy for a final Ambush at the .5s mark. Vanish immediately, and will often give you 5 free cp's to refresh Rupture with

 

Vanish 3: When SD comes back up

 

In general, you only want to delay Vanish by a maximum of 6 seconds to line up with SD and by a maximum of 12 seconds to line up with SD + SR

Guess I was wrong. smile.png

 

Carrn, isn't better to normally have a constant high output on fights (other than increased damage mechanics)?

Nah everything is about the burst; between Soul Capacitor and the Legendary Ring, you're packing as much damage into the stacking effects as possible

 

 

The 30% damage boost during SD and/or SR is nothing to shake a stick at. Especially if you get a Soul Capacitor proc and use the Ring, you get an absurd amount of extra damage

Those will certainly help a lot, yes. You should still work on the stuff that Lip mentioned though, don't rely on gear as a crutch / excuse

      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

      Now with patch 7.1.5 out and the boots/talent energy refund being nerfed, does energetic stabbing become our most sought after relic trait?
      Is there any order of best > worst amongst the relic traits?

      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.
