Simple Find Weakness Question

2 posts in this topic

Hi there, long time rogue, first time sub rogue here, and I noticed in another post made by Carne that if there's more than 13 seconds between my find weakness procs, I should be checking to see if there aren't any cool downs I could be using to get it up. As it stands I've been using my various find weakness inducing abilities one right after the other, when my cool downs allow for this that is, as soon as the proc falls off or sometimes 1 second before to allow ambush to benefit from the previous  find weakness, however this leaves many gaps larger than 13 seconds in my rotation without find weakness being up, so my question is thus: Is there a way to delay my use of vanish/shadow dance so that find weakness ends up being up longer than burning them as soon as they're up?

Ademdum #1 Should I be pooling energy before I cast vanish/shadow dance (as an old school combat rogue it seems wrong to ever stop spamming buttons lol),or should I try to build a few CP so that I can immediately get two evis. off?

Thanks in advance for any advice and help!

Just in case here's a link to some logs, I know I really need to work on both my rupture and Slice and Dice up times >.<

Your damage will look really low to you cause your Rupture uptime is at like 55% and it's about 15% of my damage on its own. 

 

I'm going to go into a little more detail about Find Weakness, since I'm not really clear what you mean. Once you come out of Shadow Dance, you'll have 10s of Find Weakness available (assuming that your last skill was Ambush, which it should be). So you have 9s of your attacks (BS, Hemo, and Evis) ignoring the target's armou, then 1 last second to re-apply FW with Ambush. The easiest way to do that is obviously through Vanish > Ambush, which will give you 10 more seconds of FW being available.

 

Assuming that you do that, your FW uptime still won't be great, but it's not really supposed to be, either. I get around 33-35% on a fight where I can hit something regularly. 

 

As for your Addendum, did you read through the Pinned post on Shadow Dance use? It goes into pretty good detail there.

 

Quick side note: Warcraft Logs is a lot nicer for me to use, cause I can see more details there than I can on AskMrRobot. Personal opinion, anyways. The fact that you posted any logs and know to look at them for improvements is really good

      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).
