Assassination Rogue 7.03 Guide

9 posts in this topic

Hello guys,

I have a question regarding the stat priority in the newest assassination guide(for patch 7.03).

How is versatility stronger than crit?

you get 0.91% CRit per 100 crit rating and 0.77% versatility per 100 versatility rating. This results in a flat 0.91% dmg increase (disregarding the benefits of more combopoints, just the flat double damage bonus) for crit and 0,77% dmg bonus for versatility without further bonuses. Am I missing something? Did my testing result in wrong Percent-per-Rating-Values?

Thanks for any help.

I don't think that's an accurate statement. It's a .91% chance to deal double damage.

In any case, the numbers are all obtained from SimCraft, which runs the math for us. I'm terrible at math, but certainly for the time being Vers is our top priority stat. You can see the SimCraft results here

You'll notice that they're pretty close in terms of value (0.56 and 0.54), but Vers is technically higher

This is the same.

0.91% chance to do double damage means also, that 99.09% of the time you deal normal damage.

In Numbers, assuming d is damage:

0,9909*d+0.0091*(2*d)=(0.9909+2*0.0091)*d=1.0091*d

which is a flat 0.91% damage increase.

SInce this is more than what comes out of versatility even BEFORE considering the benefits of more Combopoints due to "Seal Fate" crit should be way better than versatility.

I did not want to see a spreadsheet that just claims: "BEHOLD MY NUMBERS AND QUIVER MERE MORTALS". (Don't get me wrong, it's a great thing that someone actually puts so much effort into this and shares their numbers. Honestly.) I want to know how these numbers come to be because I get the feeling I'm missing some mechanic and that's never a good thing.

I may be babbling a lot of crap here, but I'll give my two cents.

One is frequency increase, another is flat damage increase that also takes in consideration the frequency increase. To evaluate Versatility, I think you gotta look towards the Crit chance affecting it too and see the damage in overall.

Edit: I'm curious. Guide says to ignore Mastery because everything is around bleeds, but IMHO poison still there and Envenom still plays a good part of the rotation. Is poison damage negligible ATM?

What do you mean by frequency increase? As I mentioned above, I have not even considered the Combopoint gain. Even without, crit is a higher flat damage increase than veersatility.

In a word? Yes.

Rupture does a truly truly absurd percentage of Sin's damage at the moment - approximately 40% with decent fight duration (1 min or longer), while Envenom sits around 7%

It's really, really broken, but also Sin does very little in the way of poisons at all until the Artifact weapon

If you can show me a Sim in which this is the case, I'll agree with you.

Until then, I'm going to lean with the mathematics and say that Vers has a 0.56 weight and Crit has a 0.54.

As I said above, they are very close, but if you want which is technically better, Vers is it.

Okay guys, i figured it out, The SIm was run with T18 set bonuses. The SetBonus is 30% crit increase for our main damage component rupture for targets with less than 35% health, makin crit on the rest of your gear weaker. This also means, every rogue who does not have this set bonus should better go for crit, NOT versatility and it also means, that once you drop your felblade gear for legion items, crit pulls ahaed of versatility again.

What I meant was the purpose of each stat. Critical Strike increases the ocurrence of doubled damage while Versatility literally increases damage.

      So I was fortunate enough to get mantle of command last night, and ran some quick sims. Based on my sims, it would seem that crit has over taken haste in the stat priority when using mantle of command. So stat priority is as follows:
      agi > mast > crit > haste > vers
       
      I haven't calculated weights, but the difference in simulations was significant. I'll leave the weight calculating to others. The idea is that with mantle of command and the changing function of dire beast, it is more advantageous to get more dire beasts from crit, than reducing the CD through haste. Maybe someone else can confirm this also.

      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.
