Change your weapon enchant - use haste one;

Change your 2nd trinket when possible;

Glyph of Deadly Momentum is not that good for raiding, switch for Energy;

Glyph of Stealth is useless in a raid environment - put Disappearance;

Give preference using Elusiveness, it can help you a lot on overall damage. Once you proc Cheat Death, if you're in a bad spot, it's instagib;

 

As for logs:

 

Revealing Strike uptime is low;

SnD uptime is low;

Vanish usage is low;

Adrenaline Rush should be used nearly on cooldown all times, and right AFTER Killing Spree;

No Preparation usage;

Lack of Prepot and pot @ combat.

 

Things to focus for now - worry about these in order:

 

- Stay calm and setup a tracking interface - read this thread;

- Increase Revealing Strike and SnD max uptime;

- Use Adrenaline Rush more often - casts should be near Killing Spree cast quantity;

- Use Vanish more often (and switch the Stealth glyph for the Disappearance one - it'll ensure you to have it available every 1 min for a quick free Ambush);

- Use a pot before pull and on your next heavy damaging phase (I.E. Deep Insight Killing Spree, Adrenaline Rush, Hero and so);

- Weave in Preparation usage after first Vanish;

 

And for last but not least important - have fun.

Thank you for fast response!

 

One question - Glyph of Blade furry.... Should i change to that glyph at fights, when are many mobs?

 

@lipsinch, how i can contact with you in game, if there is possibility? :)

That glyph isn't useful. It'd only be useful if you needed to slow a big quantity of adds for a mechanic or so (which is completely unlikely to happen for a good while)

 

As for you gear, I just mentioned about your weapon and trinket. I'm no expert on gear, so I can give you only the basic info towards that. =l

I disagree on Glyph of Deadly Momentum for AoE fights with adds that die off. It can keep your SnD up without having to cast it very many times. But it's only good on fights like Beastlord, Thogar, etc. My 3rd glyph changes depending on the fight (Energy and Disappearance are always used). It will change between Deadly Momentum, Feint, Sprint, and Smoke Bomb or Recovery only if healers need help.

 

For talents, I have personally gone for Cheat Death over Elusiveness so far this expansion and it saves me all the time from things a buffed Feint might not. Also, from your current spec, I would def drop Cloak & Dagger for Shadowstep for all situations.

 

The only additional thing I will mention for DPS rotation (make sure to get comfortable doing the things lipsinch mentions first) is lining up KS, AR, and/or Ambush with Deep Insight whenever it makes sense. This can be a lot more difficult to do, but usually one of them can be used during Deep Insight. Usually using two Ambushes during my first Deep Insight will delay the second one just enough to fit KS into it.

It only procs if you get the killing blow, and isn't reliable. I would recommend taking a glyph you'll get more use out of, such as CoS

Cheat Death should be taken over Elusiveness only when you can cheese a mechanic with it. Else, the situations that proc it off will probably kill you next, so it's not really reliable. Elusiveness becomes more efficient because paired with other CDs (or even alone) it can mitigate A LOT of damage for almost nothing.

The other situation is if you're pugging a fight like Koragh, and you need to make sure that none of the randoms screw something up and kill you. It's a safety net; passively there, but doesn't actually help you perform better

 

The flip side of that is you can't do much with Cheat Death - you can Feint and help with lots of mechanics, such as the Acid Torrent on Oregorger

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hi,
      I need some help figuring out my rogues weak auras.
      I currently have this: https://gyazo.com/e9f6967a7c2e56fdb4a88f9c554ebd22
      What I want to happen is that when there are 3 seconds remaining on for ex rupture, the icon of rupture glows and once rupture is gone the icon just stays there glowing.
      Secondly, could someone give me the ID for the envenom buff as I cannot seem to track it whatever I do. Hopefully in the same format as the others in the picture above.
      Can anyone help me with this by guiding me on how to do it or giving me the string on the new one?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey guys, I currently have alot of choice when it comes to what trinkets I should use. I ofcourse have been simming all the different options but because alot of these combinations include Nightblooming Frond, I take them with a grain of salt and am looking for other opinions. Just for FYI the highest SimDPS combo i am getting is Nightblooming Frond + Hunger of the Pack which is at 754 112 SimDPS. With all options I am between 897 and 898 iLvL. These are my choices
      895 - Heroic Warforged - Nightblooming Frond
      890 - Heroic - Entwined Elemental Foci
      885 - Heroic - Arcanogolem Digit
      885 - Titanforged - Unstable Arcanocrystal (+930 to all secondary stats)
      880 - Mythic - Bloodthirsty Instinct
      880 - Mythic 14 - Hunger of the Pack
      940 - Legendary - Kil'Jaeden's Burning WIsh (This basically is not an option however due to me having Greenskin's Wrists and Insignia of Ravenholdt Ring)
      Cheers for all your help, If you would like anymore information just ask.

      Hi, 
      I have a couple of questions for assass and outlaw on things i cant seem to find a proper answer for anywhere. The first is for assass. With vigor the new go to talent, what number of combo points is it worth using envenom on to not potentially waste combo points (i have heard both 2, 3 and 4). For outlaw, when using the wrists, how worthwhile is it to hold a blunderbuss proc, or saber slash to full combo points to cast a between the eyes (potentially wasting pistol shot procs), or should i just use the wrists with any pistol shot proc. Also, does anyone know if draught of souls is good for outlaw, as i picked one up the other day (currently using 880 urn and 870 angerboda)
      Cheers
