Spec Combination 6.2

I have been struggling to come to a decision about which two specializations would be most optimal to play during 6.2. From what I could tell from browsing these forums, it seems that the consensus is that assassination/combat would be the best bet, but I cannot seem to understand why.

 

After looking at heroic mode logs, the bosses that combat pulls ahead of the other two specs are: assault, kormrok (by a very small margin), kilrogg (if you're going into the portal), Iskar, and Xhul.

 

On Assault and Iskar, I cannot wrap my head around how combat would be better in regards to the priority of adds. On Iskar, would it not make more sense to go sub and train eviscerates into whichever mob is at the top of your raids priority, rather then cleaving them all down? I feel the same way towards Assault; even though your dps may skyrocket when you go combat, is it really worth doing that much lower dps on adds that are a priority?

 

In regards to Kilrogg, if you are not part of the few who go into the portals, I do not see how it would be worth going combat. Kormrok is so close that I feel that in my case, where my group has had no issue killing the hands, I cannot think of a reason to switch from sub, which even with the aoe is only 1.7k behind combat. Xhul seems to be a bit harder to argue against combat, although sub does not seem like an awful alternative if you are constantly assigned to clearing fire and eating black holes.

 

This post may have ended up more as me attempting to rationalize why I do not need to go combat, but I hope my arguments make sense. Perhaps things change a ton in mythic, but is it actually worth swapping my sub spec out for combat?

You're absolutely right - if you aren't concerned with meters at all and just want the boss to die, you could play Sub/Sin on Assault/Iskar and not worry much. I actually played Sin for my guild's first couple Xhul kills because we needed a stronger execute phase.

 

It really depends on what your raid needs. If you're really having a hard time getting priority adds down while playing Combat, it's much more likely that the rest of your group isn't focusing said add properly.

 

If it helps your group, play the Single Target spec, but know that all of the other adds also need to die, and need to be taking at least some cleave

 

Just for reference: I play Combat for Assault, Iskar, Xhul, and Archimonde. Even though I do the bottom part on Kilrogg, I haven't played it as Combat since the burst that I get coming out of there with 20 stacks and full cooldowns is awesome. I'll try and remember to play it as Combat this coming week

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      1. can i do comparable ( to subtlety ) damage as assasination rogue? what is difference in %?
      2. shadowcraft shows me that subterfuge is 25k dps more than nightstalker, is it real?
      3. simcraft shows me, that my dps now as assasination is 25-30k less than subtlety ( 55 and 59 artifact level ), will it be the same gap when i get 59 assa artifact, or subtlety damage is always higher?

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
