Boomkin rerolling to rogue!

3 posts in this topic

Hello everyone! :D


I have been reading this forum for a while, and the whole community seems really helpful and amazing. 


So, to our point now, I have been playing boomkin since the start of Cataclysm and I wanted to change a bit and play a Rogue for WoD. I also took a break after Pandas were released because of studies, so I am not aware of the current state of rogues!

Leveling that rogue, I played assassination. After quickly browsing through known rogues' profiles though, most (if not all) play combat. What spec would you suggest I should play? 

I would be grateful if you could help me guys with this.

Thanks in advance guys!

For a low gear level, I would suggest Assassination. The damage output is consistent, it doesn't require a non-dagger, and it is the easiest spec to learn and master. Once you have a current raid level slow mainhand weapon and a strong trinket, Combat is good to know for multi-target fights. Subtlety is the hardest of the three specs, but can yield very strong numbers in pure single target fights.

Thanks for the quick reply Krush, I will try playing combat after I get some decent gear.

      I'm trying to get back into dps. I've been tanking since cata and I'd like to try my hand at dps'ing again. I feel like I should be pulling higher numbers but I just can't get them up. Any advise?  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jAQfmMyJtwpYaB8H/

      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: https://gyazo.com/61e1d2ba599db43cb2faeee306c72e81
      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: https://gyazo.com/e972f73591090f9895e097d9782e3035 
      I should be doing better now ^^ Appreciate the help
