PTR Changes to DFA

I play a Combat Rogue and noticed that on the PTR Death From Above is getting a ~25% buff to it's AOE.  Now I know that Venom Rush is best at the moment due to it's raw energy regen, however I was wondering when there was a scenario where DFA becomes a dps increase?  

 

I'm not great at theorycrafting but I hope that some people are more knowledged on the effectiveness of DFA?

 

I really want to use DFA.

 

DFA.

For Combat it still won't be great. At first glance it's looking as if it will be a decent buff for Assassination in particular and slightly for Sub, but overall nothing super amazing.

 

Still in tuning right now though, so we'll see

Combat loses too much time with white hits, and can easily energy cap due to its high Haste

 

Edit to add more detail: Combat's cleave is the exact same as its single target rotation - you just turn on Blade Flurry. Since BF hits an infinite number of targets, there's no real reason to need a special attack to cleave

      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!

      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.)

      Below are our events the beginning weeks of BfA! All events start at 10pm CT.
