1. Spell Summary

If you are new to Outlaw, it is recommended you read this before proceeding! In this section we will discuss what abilities you have, what they are used for within the specialization, and how they interact with important cooldowns. If you have played this spec before or have already achieved a level of comfort playing this spec in a practical environment, it is recommended you skip this section and move on to the rest of the guide.

2. Main Resources

Energy is the main resource of Outlaw Rogues. Energy is generated passively, the rate of which can be increased by Haste, active abilities, talents, and procs.

Combo Points are another primary resource utilized by Outlaw Rogues. Some of your abilities generate Combo Points, while finishing moves spend them, dealing increased damage per Combo Point. You can generate additional Combo Points through passives and Roll the Bones Icon Roll the Bones buffs. Combo Point management is very important to maintaining your abilities and maximizing burst.

3. Basic Abilities

These abilities are available no matter what talents you chose, and form the bread and butter of this specialization.

Saber Slash Icon Saber Slash is your main filler and Combo Point generator. It deals moderate damage and generates 1 Combo Point each time it strikes. It has a 35% chance to strike an additional time, which also procs Opportunity Icon Opportunity.

Run Through Icon Run Through is your main damaging finishing move. It consumes Combo Points and has increased damage per point.

Roll the Bones Icon Roll the Bones is a finishing move that generates a random buff(s), the most important of which is True Bearing Icon True Bearing, because it allows you to reduce the cooldown of Adrenaline Rush Icon Adrenaline Rush. This is explained in great detail in the rotation section of the guide. You should maintain a Roll the Bones Icon Roll the Bones buff at all times.

Pistol Shot Icon Pistol Shot is a ranged ability that deals weak damage, slows the target by 50%, and generates 1 Combo Point. It should only be used when you /ave an Opportunity Icon Opportunity proc.

Blade Flurry Icon Blade Flurry causes all your melee abilities and auto attacks to cleave for 35% of their damage to targets around you, at the cost of 20% Energy regeneration. This should always be active when there are 2 or more targets within range.

Stealth Icon Stealth lets you move around the battlefield unseen. You will start every fight from Stealth Icon Stealth as your Tier 2 talent provides a damage benefit to using your abilities while Stealth Icon Stealth is active.

Ambush Icon Ambush can only be used from Stealth Icon Stealth and deals strong damage, generating 2 Combo Points.

4. Important Procs

Opportunity Icon Opportunity procs off of extra Saber Slash Icon Saber Slash strikes and grants a free use of Pistol Shot Icon Pistol Shot. This is the only time you should use Pistol Shot Icon Pistol Shot as a part of the regular rotation.

Ruthlessness Icon Ruthlessness causes finishing moves to have a 20% chance per Combo Point consumed to return a Combo Point.

5. DPS Cooldowns

Adrenaline Rush Icon Adrenaline Rush increases Energy regeneration by 100% and increases attacks speed by 20% for 15 seconds, on a 3 minute cooldown. This should be used on cooldown for increased burst.

Vanish Icon Vanish allows you to enter Stealth Icon Stealth instantly. This can be used on cooldown to get an Ambush Icon Ambush whenever it is available.
