General Information

On this page, we explain what the best statistics are for Outlaw Rogues in World of Warcraft Legion 7.1, how the class benefits from each of them.

The statistics priority is important as it influences itemisation choices (gear, enchants, and gems).

The other pages of our Outlaw Rogue guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

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. Basics

The stat priority for an Outlaw Rogue is:

  1. Agility;
  2. Versatility.
  3. Critical Strike.
  4. Mastery;
  5. Haste.

1.1. Stat Weights

These values are calculated for a single target.

  1. Agility: 1.00
  2. Versatility: 0.69
  3. Critical Strike: 0.58
  4. Mastery: 0.54
  5. Haste: 0.49

These statistics have been obtained by combining common sense, in-game testing, and simulations using Simulation Craft.

You can also use Shadowcraft, an online tool dedicated to Rogues, where you can optimise your gear, gems, reforging options, enchants, talents, glyphs, and rotation.

2. Getting a Better Understanding

Agility is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.

Versatility is a flat-out damage done increase and damage taken reduction.

Haste provides you with increased attack speed and Energy regeneration. Besides the base Energy regeneration, Haste gives you more Energy through Combat Potency Icon Combat Potency. Finally, you will have an increased number of Main Gauche Icon Main Gauche procs with more Haste.

Mastery increases the chances that your main-hand attacks will grant you an attack that deals damage equal to 140% of a main-hand attack (Mastery: Main Gauche Icon Mastery: Main Gauche). This attack has a chance to trigger Combat Potency Icon Combat Potency, which increases your Energy regeneration.

Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities.
