High End Raiding Spec Switching Combat/Sub

2 posts in this topic

So far this xpac I have been raiding combat, but as I have joined a new hardcore guild it looks like I will need to rotate between Sub and Combat depending on boss to maximize my DPS.

 

Most of my gear is heroic haste gear from Highmaul. The new gear in BRF is more specialized for Sub. My question is how top rogues change gear per spec. Do you have two sets of gear with multistrike enchants on one and haste enchants on other? If I am going to switch back and forth with one gearset, should I enchant multistrike on everything since it is at least the second best stat for Sub while haste is the worst stat for Sub?

Also, do top raiders change specs even for trash? Ex, trash mobs need AOE so you take the time to switch to combat for trash, then back to Sub if it's a single target boss fight?

 

Any advice would be great! Thanks in advance!

Yes, As you get more gear, you'll set up 2 different sets with one for each set. For progression though, I doubt you'll be seeing enough gear to allow yourself to do that

 

If you're going to min/max, Multistrike is probably best. Double check your weapon enchants on Shadowcraft though, since you won't have the same ones for Combat and Sub

      Hello, I have a reasonably geared subtlety rogue with disappointing dps.  My iLevel is 894 equipped and my artifact level is 54 (max).  A link to my character is provided below.  On Nighthold, depending on my familiarity with the fights, I can do 350-400—which usually puts me in the bottom of the groups I pug.
      I'm pretty sure I am doing something systematically wrong.  I did a quick LFR to generate some logs and have attached them below.  I was worried about my up time for symbols of death, but that doesn't seem to be the issue.  Any insight more experienced rogues can offer would be appreciated.

      I just recently swapped over to subtlety from sin, and have been slightly struggling on the meters since doing so. My artifact weapon is only ilvl 885 in sub compared to 909 for sin, but i cant help but feel like that isnt the only thing bringing me down. I feel like im pretty comfortable on the rotation but something isnt adding up on the meters. Even on my best pulls i still fall wayy behind most of my other guildies.

      Did some reading on how the subtlety rotation works in the AMR sim and noticed it saying 
      http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/theory/rotation/amrroguesubtletydefault?spec=RogueSubtlety&version=live from here
      Does this mean if I have dos equipped, and activate both sprint and dos at the same time the damage done won't prevent me from getting the vanish? Or is this related to using dos during the vanish effect making it not break stealth?
      I haven't had time to test this myself as I'm at work, but if anyone has any experience with this I would appreciate some feedback.
      Edit:
      Just did some testing on a dummy and in nighthold. The damage still let's your trigger the sprint vanish during the trinket channel, which means you will not loose out on dps from the 3 sec channel time. It would be best to make sure your energy is pretty low and you're not cp capped. It seems you can still proc shadow techniques during the channel as well.
      However it didn't really feel like much of a dps increase, I would habe to practise the timing a bit more. It makes the opener weird. My armory for reference: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/argent-dawn/Jjajangmyeon/advanced

      Hey,
      So the CoF trinket dropped for me yesterday, which means Im having a lot more uptime of Shadowblades. I guess its a good time to switch to Anticipation, since i will have a lot more CP overflow (+4 Set Bonus) and Deeper Strategem got nerfed too. Damage-wise i don't see a difference to DS though, while SimC calculates 20k+ dps with Anticipation. And should i always stack CP to 9-10 when i don't have the Finality Eviscerate Buff ? Im just torn between these two talents.
      Another Problem i've noticed is SimC and Icy Veins say that Weaponmaster is better than Master of Subtlety although "top sub rogues" still play with MoS. Is there any reason behind that?
