Racialist Rogues

6 posts in this topic

What are the dps values for rogues?  What races (for each faction) are best for what spec?  Currently I'm just a blood elf but I'm debating a switch

Firstly, unless you're struggling on progression and really need to min/max everything, a race change probably won't be noticeably beneficial.

 

Having said that, Shadowcraft.mmo-mumble.com has an option to choose your race, and it will give you a rough idea of the relative gain/loss.

 

For me (ilvl 573 assassination rogue) troll and worgen give me the highest score, at 350994.2 and 350945.3 respectively. Human is the lowest, at 347992.7. Undead gives me 349170.9.

 

Overall, that's a 3k difference between the highest and lowest, which is roughly 0.86%. It might be slightly different with other specs, but I wouldn't consider < 1% to be worth a race change.

 

And with the changes to racials that are coming in WoD, things will probably be very different.

 

Then again, I did race change from worgen to human because of how helms looked on a worgen, so take my advice with a pinch of salt

so I see, I'm looking at 1000 dps changes.  Pretty trivial really.  Guess I'll stay belf. And honestly?  While goblin leap is useful I quite frankly get lots of us out of arcane torrent as an emergency interrupt.  It's even better on my prot paladin, where depending on grand crusader I can seriously lock out a mob's casts.

I love my blood elf prot paladin for that reason. With the loss of avengers shield silencing all 3 targets, it really makes up for AoE grouping.

 

As for rogues I'm always in PvP so the racials always have a incalculable benefit :)

Yeah I noticed that while WOTF and goblin jump are great too, an aoe interrupt, especially on a rogue, is very powerful.  especially in pug BG's where casters and healers may just stand on top of each other dps tunneling

PvP is a different story, a tiny edge over another player can be the difference between getting the kill and getting killed. In PvE the difference is irrelevant because the percentage increase is negligible.

 

Pick the race that you like looking at the most.
