Horde class suggestion for Rogue

5 posts in this topic

I was thinking about starting a goblin rogue because of the haste bonus. Is there a better option? troll?

I think overall Pandas are the best, because they have +300 agi if you take the best food available.

Trolls are good with their mini-bloodlust.

Orcs are pretty good too with a decent DPS cooldown in Blood Fury.

Goblins have the 1% static haste.

Blood elves don't really have anything noteworthy.

However, overall the DPS difference will be minor at best. Unless you're really pushing for hardcore raiding progression the race choice won't really affect anything.

For Throne Of Thunder the Troll 5% increase on beasts is very handy.

Horridon

Tortos

Megaera

Ji-Kun

Plus the 3 dogs on Iron Qon.

The only acceptable answer here is Tauren. Desire it so much that you fill all the developers' email inboxes with requests to be a Tauren Rogue. CLOP CLOP STAB has never sounded better.

Don't do a racial for its usefulness in PvE. Pick a character you like seeing a lot. Goblins are fun...Haste, bank, best jokes, and Rocket Jump...but man, don't get anything you like for xmog...it'll be miniature sized. Personally, as an Orc, I'm partial to their massive shoulders. Blood Fury is nice...but don't forget the 15% reduction from stuns as well. Their daggers would also be larger if you're into how you look. Blood Elves, if you PvP, have a usefulness in that they get an extra AoE interrupt with Arcane Torrent. Females also get the best xmogs ever. Trolls look too clumsy to be Rogues, but Berserking is quite nice. Voodoo shuffle also reduces movement impairing effects. The Beast Slaying is nice, but Throne of Thunder won't last forever, and I'm not seeing a lot of Beasts in Siege of Orgrimmar. Undead look awesome, and Touch of the Grave is nice. Cannibilize and Will of the Forsaken are great for PvP, but they have the best laugh and /dance.

I'd go with what you think looks the best, not the minor 1% difference between the 'best' and 'worst.'

Undead Rogues are hilarious. If you ever wanted to be one of those fast zombies and descend on an unsuspecting Gnome to disembowel it, there's your answer.

      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).
