Doubt abot going for 7,5 exp cap or not?

2 posts in this topic


I have been playing rogue on and of before mist, but this content i wanted to make it my main.

It's going pretty well so far, but i have a question about the Expertise cap,

As i can see on your guides, you tell me to go for the 7,5 % cap point.

But you also mention Shadowcraft, which i also can refered by a fellow rogue.

If i do reforge and gems after Shadowcraft, i gives me a Expertise % of around 4-5 %.

It actually reforges all expertise to mastery etc.

Is this just different opinions or what is the deal with this? :)

**I read a post from 2012, where you stated that Exp wasn't important as Assassination, case of their poison.

Hope someone out there can help me with this question :)

The thing with Assassination is that all stats are really close (except for Hit until the cap). So, if you reforge all wrong you may only notice a very small DPS difference (of about 5%). The difference between reforging Expertise to Mastery Rating and not doing it is even smaller (like 1%), and it's only the case at low gear levels.

As you get gear from Tier 15 and then Heroic gear from Tier 15, you will notice that Expertise is starting to pull ahead of other statistics, and Mastery Rating is pulling slightly ahead Haste Rating and Critical Strike Rating.

So, that's the reasoning behind our current stat priority for Assassination.

      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?
      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:
      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: 
      I should be doing better now ^^ Appreciate the help

      Hello all,
      Like many others on the forums, I'm in that weird space in gearing where drops have to be specifically screened based on Stat weights rather rather than item level. It seems we sins have been hit really hard by this distinction, leading to a genuine issue where deciding to take lower item level gear can impact our estimated invitation value to mythic+ groups. 
      The following is my current gears set, shitty legendary and all. My current goal is to level out my mastery a bit higher, as I made the foolish decision to value high crit gear without concern for mastery this last week, and have felt the effects.
      Check me out, and pass me some tips or love!
