Subtlety Rogue help?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am currently trying to raise my dps as a subtlety rogue, usually it lays around the 25-30k but it seems like my regular melee attacks does way more damage than any of my abilities. which doesnt seem right?

 

 

I am currently mostly pvp geared for assasination.

 

 

here is my armory :http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/grim-batol/Isendier/advanced

log is in the comments.

 

 

I hope that i posted this the "right" place and that someone out there can help me smile.png

Sorry, but your post is sort of confusing me - are you looking for more damage as Sub in PvP? Or in PvE? Cause the two play very differently. Either way I can help you not a problem, I'm just looking for some clarification :)

Ive come to realize that the problem may be because of the high mastery stat i have. I'm currently working on getter stats that suites subtlety better.

 

But any tips at all?

Stats are a small portion of your dps, changing your stats around won't change your dps as much as tightening up and perfecting your rotation will.

Few things on your rotation (I've looked only the Brackenspore kill)

 

- Overusage of Garrote. Use once on opener to trigger SV. That's all folks. Damage is super negligible, you got Rupture for that.

- Vanish + Prep. You could've fit 3 Vanishes in there, and thus extending your biggest "CD" - Find Weakness. You took too long to blow your first Vanish - should've been right before the first FW fell, followed by Preparation. Your second Vanish is 30s later after it's off cooldown, so you're wasting at least 15s on boss without Find Weakness (which sometimes can be the difference between a kill and a wipe).

- Rupture should NEVER fall off. It's your main damage, even some small downtime means a significative damage loss. 93% isn't abysmally bad, but you should aim for 99%+;

- Bracken is a cleave fight, you can Rupture-tab the other add and use it to generate CPs faster with FoK while your Rupture ticks and Evisc away your hearts' content. Remember, if there are adds you can FoK and a main target, do it and dump everything else on main - else, Rup-tab;

- It's more practical, but not optimal: don't macro your Shadow Reflection with your Shadow Dance. You should be making your shadow copy your Rupture, and you shouldn't be Rupturing inside Shadow Dance. So, make it 2 buttons, gives you better control. Shadow Reflection > Rupture > Shadow Dance;

- Hemo does negligible damage, just use it as a cushion for your Rupture timing (it's a pain in teh ass to control it with MS proccing 24/7). Don't use it to generate combo points (except on extreme positional requirements), and don't overlap it before it's pandemic timer.

 

As for stats, I don't know how the weights are now (you should sim your toon), but MS and Mastery are good 2nd stats for Sub.

 

So, yeah. tl;dr

 

tighten your timers;

unbind your cds;

use more vanish/prep;

99% Rupture uptime;

 

Hope it helps.

Lipsinch: Yeah, I am stil working on the rotation, I am currently getting better at openers etc, but about the mastery part, I get 61% weapon speed from SnD and therefore i assume i should get more multistrike.

But thanks for the opener advice, I guess i've been trying to save the cd's or something like that, I'll try it out.

and the macro with shadowdance and reflection, Yeah i get your point and will remove it, however the Icy veins guide as i recall says its best to use it as a macro.

 

Overall thanks for the advice :)

Mastery doesn't increase only SnD effectiveness, but also the damage from your finishers, Evisc, Rupture and CT. So you can expect heavy Eviscs and hard hitting DoTs. Though I don't know at what extent MS outweights Mastery and vice versa, so the best bet is simming your toon really. =)

Both Shadowcraft and SimCraft are good, but Shadowcraft is much easier to use for beginners so that's where I would recommend starting. I gave your character a quick Sim for you, and your damage is pretty close to where you can be

 

I have a couple suggestions: 

 

1) What Lip said is good advice, so I won't expand on that

 

2) In order to get comfortable with the rotation, sit on a target dummy for 4 minutes at a time (drop combat after Shadow Reflection comes up the second time). It won't be perfect, but it will help you get used to timing your openers and cooldowns

 

3) Getting new trinkets, a ring, and the set bonuses will be very beneficial to you. Your ilevel is plenty high enough to get a group for normal HFC (Heroic too, even) and you can use those to get some good upgrades which will push your damage a lot

I dont think any group will take me because most of my gear is pvp related :)

There's no penalty for wearing PvP gear in PvE content, it just doesn't scale up to it's PvP level.

Sorry, but your friend still lives in Pandaria. Tell him to search for PvP Pallies back in 6.0 (or 6.1?) with their absurd PvP 4pc topping meters in PvE.

 

No offense. :>

 

Edit:

 

isendier, keep us updated! I'd like to see how our fellow Rogues are evolving. =)

Hey!

 

Ok, feedback time:

 

Tyrant:

 

- Try pre premeditation - use it before the pull and activate SnD like 2s before Premeditation resetting (it has 20s for usage, but the 2CP you earn wears off in 18s - try to time with that count)

- Too much Garrote. You use it only once @ opener. No more than that.

- You can cast more Vanishes. 1m30 per Vanish CD, the fight lasts 6 min. That means you can at least cast it 4 times if you use on CD PLUS 2 times with Preparation. So, you gotta use it 6 times.

- SnD uptime was under 90%. Remember, 99% uptime. No SnD = no energy = no damage.

- Rupture was good with 97%. Work on those 2% left, but try to not overlap them.

- Kidney Shot. Prolly a misclick. tongue.png

- Only use Hemo when you're unable to provide a full 5CP Rupture on the target or either it'll die really quick that's not worth using Rupture on it (or due to positional requirements). For everything else, forego it. You overlapped Rupture with Hemo on adds twice and 4 times on boss when Rupture was active yet.

- The adds were stacked for a while on boss, so you could've used that situation to generate more CPs using FoK. That makes your life easier, the CP flow increases and you have room to wiggle with your buffs (or even squeeze more DPS).

- Make use of your other defensive CDs. You don't have only Feint, you got CoS, Sprint, Smoke Bomb... You could've taken less damage, specially if you're on soak duty.

 

And I'ma sleep, wrote this while having a DR, lol.

 

Tomorrow or some time later I check the other fights. If anyone is willing to take a look, please do so. It's 1am and I'm sleepy enough to let something slip away (or I didn't have the knowledge really, I'm no master).

 

Edit: Forgot to mention - nice squid hat.

heres a log from highmaul earlier today, i have to remember to delete old logs because some HFC is in there too.

https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/WB6ycPdYqRVH34fX

Also the high amount of hemorrhage is because the LFR tanks kept turning the bosses -.-¨

And thanks tongue.png I've been fishing before i log 

 

But I've got a question about the SnD because if find weakness is about to run out, but SnD is too. Isnt the priority to get another eviscerate on him while the debuff is up? (and then reapply SnD as quickly as possible afterwards)

 

 

Thanks for the feedback smile.png It's good to see what i can do better smile.png

 

edit: 

and heres one from HFC up till kilrogg - https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/nA9BR7DaXrYKWqd6/

 

I really screwed up in some of these fights with rupture at 70% at one, i feel bad for uploading it but well any feedback is good feedback :D

Keeping the energy regen from SnD is more important than using Evis, but it really depends how many combo points you have at the time - if you have enough to use both finishers right in a row, then Evis > SnD

I've got another question guys :) During shadowdance, and theres like 4 sec left but you got full combo points and anticipation. should you throw an eviscerate and maybe a single ambush (depending on energy) or try to get 2x ambushes in instead?

If you're full CP, Eviscerate; last second of SD you Ambush to extend Find Weakness 10s more. It's pointless Ambushing while full CP, you'll just throw away potential damage (CPs).

Another question here :) I have a headpiece and legs, 715 ilvl non tier piece. and i have a 710 headpiece and 685 legs both tier pieces. would it be better to go for higher ilvl or to get the bonus from tier pieces? (keep in mind i only have those two tier pieces)

I don't think it's worth dropping 2pc, losing 5CP and 30% dmg on Vanish seems big to me.

 

I'm not sure of it (better if someone else confirm this), but I wouldn't drop it.

Yeah I wouldn't drop it either. Keep the offset pieces just to see what Tier you do get, but the tier pieces are better

      Established in 2009, Cyrus is a guild with its roots in MMO games reaching back to Warhammer Online. We are an organised and dedicated guild completely committed to getting the best out of our players while trying to keep track of where the fun is. We aren't afraid to put the hard work in, try out new strategies and we certainly aren't the type to give up after the first wipe - we will adapt, refocus and find a way to reach our objective.
      Although Cyrus has at times been considered an elite guild, we are certainly not looking for elitist players. We value teamwork and positive attitude far more than individual ego and rhetoric. We recognise that we are only as good as those we run with, and that means if we want to improve we must improve not only ourselves but those around us. This is not achieved through bragging, whining or quitting - it's achieved through patience, practise and hard work. It's not about how good any individual is, it's about how good your group is and how you can work with others to improve it.
      Cyrus is not a casual guild, and we have been greatly put off by the increasingly casual nature of MMOs recently. To us, guild and realm pride should mean something. We don't spam invite players, we ask members to apply to join us because they see something in us that they want to participate in. And in return, we work tirelessly to place the right people in the right groups, increase our players awareness and knowledge of the game and their class, and to organise varied and epic guild events that we will remember for years to come.
      If you are looking to make your journey through World of Warcraft Classic legendary, and you are prepared to put the time and effort in to maximise not only your own, but your teams play style and skill, then Cyrus is the guild for you. You will need a thick skin, a good sense of humour, the discipline to know when to speak up and when to shut up, and the dedication to constantly evolve and improve.

      This is a condensed version of our guild history. To read the full version, please click here.
      We started life in Warhammer Online in March 2009 (originally called Exodus) and became the largest and most active Order PvP guild on the Karak-Norn server. We played a central role in co-ordinating our faction, hosting cross-alliance community initiatives to try and bring the many guilds and alliances on the server together in an attempt to take the fight to the numerically superior Destruction side.

      Cyrus in Warhammer, known as Exodus. We fought for Order on Karak-Norn
      We later moved to Aion where we became a top 10 ranked Elyos PvP guild on the Perento server. Intending to pursue our enjoyment of PvP, we were one of the primary guilds in the early days of the game, however the severe PvE grind and lack of meaningful PvP content meant that our player base changed somewhat and we became more of a PvE guild with occasional raids in the Abyss. We refocused when the ground PvP patch was released and had a lot more fun.

      Cyrus in Aion. We fought for Elyos on Perento. Embracing the grind…
      In Rift we combined these two playstyles and became unquestionably the most successful and talked about PvP guild on our server, all the while maintaining competitive PvE raids that cleared all content in the game. We were yet again the leading guild when it came to organising our faction, setting up server-wide PvP events to increase participation and enjoyment for all in the game.
      Such was our success in the PvP lakes that we eventually ran out of opposition to fight against, so we transferred servers looking for new challenges. Our influence was so great that most guilds from both factions followed our move, and within a few weeks our previous server was transformed from the busiest EU PvP server to a trial realm!

      Cyrus in Rift. We fought for Guardians on Whitefall. We dominated the PvP until everyone else quit crying.
      After a brief spell in SWTOR, which was completely awful, we moved to World of Warcraft (Horde, Stormscale) in 2012. While we obviously didn’t find any Open World PvP, we did enjoy the challenges of running three Rated Battlegrounds teams, with the occasional Raid to pass the time. During our first full Rated Battlegrounds season we managed to take a group of mostly new-to-WoW players to a legitimate 2200+ rating, something that was not so simple to do as a guild in this game with all the win-traders and cheats.

      Cyrus in WoW. From zero to 2200+, proving the doubters wrong! 
      Since then, we have dabbled in Final Fantasy XIV and been back to WoW. But these were the beginning of barren times, as games such as Guild Wars 2 and Wildstar, which should have been natural homes for guilds such as ours, failed to deliver on expectations. In 2016 we launched 'Club Cyrus' - a more casual multiplayer gaming initiative enabling us to at least play something together - Rocket League, The Division, Chivalry, Ghost Recon, etc. And while these games each gave us many hours of light entertainment, we have always yearned for an MMO to come along and do it old-school again, to give us a real home to stick with and build our characters and guild over 1000's of hours. Something that requires old-school effort, commitment and team work. Something that can help us escape our drab real lives, and instead transform into better looking, more in-shape, possibly even female (!) avatars with gloriously pixelated wardrobes that speak of our daring and courageous deeds on the virtual battlefield!

      A typical Cyrus group lines up for a picture: Bruce, Dave, Steve, Alan and Dan.
       
      WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
      While we have a strong core that are committed to giving up their social lives from August 27th, we need more bodies to throw on the pile. That’s where you come in! Cyrus is an 'old school' MMO guild, and we are looking for members who want to become part of a greater community, who want to put the effort in and earn their achievements rather than get carried.
      We are looking for intelligent, active and friendly players to join our ranks. In World of Warcraft Classic, we are hoping to create a successful guild with outstanding organisation, solid progression and a shared objective. We want dedicated and reliable players who are in it for the long haul, who will not quit at the first or second hurdle, and will hold out for the payoff that such a team of players deserve. No elitism, no egos, and plenty of patience, reality and understanding. Ok, maybe a little bit of elitism!
      Members should take the time to learn their class and skills, and how they can best benefit their guild teams. Being an excellent individual player is great, but it is far more important to be an excellent team player, to follow instructions, and to know when to stop joking around, focus, and stop standing in the lava! Your goals should be that of the guild as a whole, not of yourself.
      Members are required to use Discord and have a clear, working microphone. We welcome members from all over the world, however we do ask that in guild chat and Discord English is used at all times.
       
      WHAT WE CAN OFFER
      Cyrus is an experienced, focused, progression-based guild for mature, skilled and team-orientated players. We offer Discord voice communications with a mostly family-friendly atmosphere, as well as our own website which is used to organise pretty much everything we do. We have a long-established leadership who is committed to getting the most out of our members and ensuring everyone is working towards their own and the common goals of the guild.

      Guild levelling PvP event in Rift. If you haven't experienced being in a really great guild before, get it right for WoW Classic!
      We have a strong community spirit, and thanks to our successful recruitment in previous games, a very welcoming attitude towards new members of any experience level so long as they are prepared to put the time in. We do not form cliques, and we do not favour members based on their time or rank within the guild.
      While Cyrus’ main objective will be clearing raid content, we are a guild steeped in the rich tradition of PvP and as such, you can expect organised Battlegrounds and World PvP nights. Our current plan is to raid two evenings per week, provisionally on Wednesdays and Sundays.

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?
