Assassination DPS to the MAX. Looking for tips!

4 posts in this topic

Hello fellow rogues :-) 

 

I love playing Assassination, and i love playing my game 100% ..

 

I would like to get 100% out of this spec. And thats why i wrote this thread. I will like to hear your guys view on this!

 

Here is my char: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/ravencrest/Equin%C3%B6x/simple

 

1. Stats

 

I know about Icy Veins stat priority. Which puts Mastery = Crit. But suggest that you go full mastery on Enchants and Gems, when you have 4th set bonus. But on the warlogs, i see a lot of rogues, which use different enchants and gems. Some use Mastery on everything, some use Crit on everything, some mix it... and some even use Multistrike. 

I am looking for the BEST way to go. What is your take on this? And feel free to comment on my chars setup.

 

2. Rotation

 

- Refresh Rupture, when it's under 7.2 seconds left. 

- Refresh Envenom, when it's under 1.8 seconds left. 

 

To get maximum DPS, i guess you have to pool energy to around 60+, before you cast your Envenom – so you have energy to cast a lot of Mutilate/Dispatchs, so they benefit from the Envenom buff – correct? 

If that's correct, i often get into a dilemma. I start capping combo points. 

 

But what is best for my DPS?

 

1. Keep casting Mutilate/Dispatch so they benefit from the Envenom buff, even though i get combo point capped?

 

2. Or should i cast Envenom to use these combo points, even though i will clip my Envenom buff?

 

 

Please feel free to give me your input, for maximizing my Assassination DPS, it might be something i haven't even asked about :-)...

Cast Envenom - overlapping the buff isn't really a large dps loss

So even though the buff is over 1.8, then its: Envenom > Mutilate/Dispatch ?

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some shit.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are in need of any competent DPS, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.
