Combat Rogue - DPS Loss on Skipping Rupture

5 posts in this topic

Thank you , Icy-Veins, for the 5.0.4 rogue class guides. As always, they've been tremendously helpful in the process of setting up the optimal rotations, cooldown usage, reforge, gems, enchants, etc.

I have a question about skipping ability_rogue_rupture.jpgRupture for Combat Rogues and the subsequent DPS loss in doing so.

Unlike, Assassination with ability_rogue_venomouswounds.jpgVenomous Wounds and Subtlety with ability_rogue_sanguinaryvein.jpgSanguinary Vein, Combat has no passive abilities that boost the benefits of ability_rogue_rupture.jpgRupture. I believe skipping ability_rogue_rupture.jpgRupture would be less of a dps loss for Combat compared to Assassination and Subtlety.

What would SimCraft advise for level 90 Combat Rogues with T14 gear?

I'm in the middle of moving places, but I'll check this out for you as soon as I assemble my desk and replug my computer ;)

If anyone else could run the simulation though, that'd be great!

although i didn't run stimulation :P

If you check logs from new fights all combat rogues using rupture for single target

exception is only multi target fights when you are using blade flurry

check out post on ElitJerks (they did some stimu runs) about rupture. Posted Image

Just for information, I've just done a simulation with the Combat Rogue T14H profile in SimC, and not using Rupture is a 1.5% DPS loss.

When I'm running combat I toss one up when I can, but don't worry about it too much. Keeping SnD up is way more important.
