General Information

Welcome to our Outlaw Rogue DPS guide for World of Warcraft Legion 7.1. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about playing a Outlaw Rogue in a raid environment and in Mythic+ dungeons.

About Our Author and Reviewer

This guide has been written by Furty who raids in Serenity, one of the top World of Warcraft guilds. He plays most classes at the highest level. You can follow him on Twitter and watch him play on Twitch.

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Perfecto, an Outlaw/Assassination Rogue who raids in Method.

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 by far 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. Strengths

  • Strong damage in any situation
  • Very versatile
  • Fantastic defensive potential

4. Weaknesses

  • High variance in damage output

5. Viability in the Current Patch

Outlaw is currently very strong in Legion for both raiding and Mythic+ dungeons. If maximizing your raid and dungeon potential is your priority, this should be your go-to spec.
