1. Class Overview

Ahoy! Outlaw Rogue is a brand new specialization in Legion, though many of its mechanics are mirrors of its forefather, Combat Rogue. Just like Combat, Outlaw is a fantastic jack of all trades that can comfortably handle any situation or fight type. Between the three Rogue specializations, Outlaw is the most effective in situations involving heavy cleave or AoE.

2. What Has Changed?

  • The name of the specialization!
  • Many abilities have renamed and reskinned.
  • Outlaw is able to deal some damage and generate Combo Points from range.
  • Poisons removed.
  • Many glyphs are no longer present within the game.
  • Many changes to the talent tree, including a variety of new abilities and passives.

3. Patch 7.1.5 Changes

4. Strengths

  • Strong cleave and AoE
  • Very versatile

5. Weaknesses

  • High variance in damage output
  • Weak single target damage

6. Viability in the Current Patch

Outlaw is currently very strong in Legion for Mythic+ dungeons, however, it falls behind the other Rogue specializations in raids.
