Assassin Rogue Trinket Question

4 posts in this topic


Okay, I'm a little confused here, is this telling me to use Haromms + Ebon and switch to Assurance for Siegecrafter / Garrosh strategies? I've recently acquired two Heroic weapons for Assassination and have been seriously contemplating giving it a go.


I have a Ticking Ebon Detonator, Haromm's Talisman, and Assurance of Consequences all at 569 4/4. For daggers, I'll be using either two Norushen's Shortblades, or one Norushen's Shortblade and one Nazgrim's Gutripper (if I can get it this following week).


Thanks for the help in advance!

What it's saying is that in a vacuum, Haromm's and TED produce more potential single target DPS over a long time frame. However, given that we do not DPS in a vacuum, AoC provides a lot of practical value. The reduced cooldowns that AoC provides can be very useful for Cloak of Shadows timing and spacing out cooldowns to coincide with critical phases of a fight. Garrosh is a good example of the Cloak of Shadows timing; if you have a high level AoC (which you do), you can have Cloak of Shadows ready for every Whirling Corruption attack. You would not have this timing without AoC.


What it will come down to for you is personal testing. Try a boss attempt with and without the AoC trinket, and see how your cooldown timing changes. If you have all of your cooldown whenever you need them without the AoC trinket, you can do without.

Thank you, Krush! I was kind of thinking along those lines. I'd definitely switch to AoC for Garrosh, guess it'd just be about testing it. 


Do you know which would be better to switch out for AoC?

I would switch out TeD for AoC and use that with Haromm's. This is also a better trinket setup than double RPPM on all fights, depending on all fights, if you gain another round of cooldowns it is better, else stick to two rppm.

      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
