Gosh, I hate it when I delete the tab I was on Posted Image

Oh, Hi Salemm18! I believe that you will find that (at the risk of being yelled out by theory crafters - yes, ya know who ya are, don't ya, lol Posted Image ) that there is really no such thing as a "best spec" for any class anymore. Everything is within 1% to 5% for leveling (and I hope I understood your question correctly). Where it seems to matter is end content - raiding or pvp, which is why we have folks who are theory crafters and can get that last .005% out of a specc. Thank, whichever deity you like, for them! And from reading and reading and reading, it looks to be "assassination" by the narrowest margin.

So, if you don't mind, look at this leveling up guide by Icy-Veins - http://www.icy-veins...-leveling-guide

it is being kept up by players and Damien & Vlad. I like combat, myself, and now we can use 2.6 weapons in either hand, I think I will enjoy it even more (lots more of them than daggers, which seem to have spell power on them too much). And if you prefer being Assassination or Subtlety, the same guide covers that too. Posted Image

I hope this helps you out. Just try it, see what you think. I know tonight, I will be trying it out. Time to get me out of the city and back into the wilderness!

au revoir

Salemm, as a rogue myself, it really boils down to whatever spec you prefer to play. I personally have been Assassination since day one back in TBC, and I still refuse to switch specs. I have tried the others, but assn just clicks with me. Play around with the specs and find one that you understand and can master, and the dps will come! Just reference the guides on here for the proper rotations!

Is it possible to make an overview which spec is best for which boss. Stoneguardians are obvious, but i m always in doubt when large aoe packs appear. FoK or BF. I really could use some other rogue opinion on this subject. Thanks in advange

I think the choice comes down to Assassination or Combat. Subtlety just does not seem on par these days, but we can always hope for a buff in the next patch.

Also, it is important to take into consideration that, if you want to raid, some fights are better for Assassination and others are better for Combat. See the DPS rankings at: http://www.worldoflogs.com

If you intend to simply do quests and dungeons, then you may want to favor Combat (because of Blade Flurry).

As Damien said, there is only two specs worth playing at the moment in Assassination or Combat, I wouldn't really suggest a spec for you as it comes down to personal preferance and there is only a tiny % between each one in terms of physical DPS output during raiding progression.

As for WezelDarkspear's question, I can give you an overview below but having progressed/killed 16/16HC with Combat only (The lower spec out of the two), I can pretty much tell you that whatever you prefer to play, you should play. You shouldn't feel the need to change for any boss unless your guild is hitting enrages for bosses and you need to squeeze the extra 1%~.

The overview below will be backed up by worldoflogs from a normal perspective only and I don't recommend taking this in any form of "guide", I also don't recommend jumping from spec to spec for each boss as you require different gems/reforges and having Combat gems/reforges while playing Assassination will probably grant you lower DPS than if you played Combat.

Mogu'shan Vaults:-

The Stone Guard: Combat

Feng the Accursed: Assassination

Gara'jal the Spiritbinder: Assassination

The Spirit Kings: Assassination

Elegon: Assassination

Will of the Emperor: Assassination

Heart of Fear:-

Imperial Vizier Zor'lok: Assassination

Blade Lord Ta'yak: Assassination

Garalon: Combat

Wind Lord Mel'jarak: Assassination

Amber-Shaper Un'sok: Combat

Grand Empress Shek'zeer: Combat

Terrace of Endless Spring:-

Protectors of the Endless: Assassination

Tsulong: Assassination

Lei Shi: Assassination

Sha of Fear: Assasination

      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 1/10M NH, 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

      So I know the title sounds a bit silly, but hear me out. My problem with MfD is, quite simply, that it locks the upper body of your character into the /point animation and I hate how it looks. I hate it hate it hate it. I use MfD, then Run Through, and my rogue does this weird crouching lunge forward with her cutlass pointing up into the sky. It's so infuriating, and I can't just wait until the animation finishes because I'll lose DPS.
      So, how much does MfD outclass the other max level talents for Outlaw? I just want to know if it's even possible to take one of the other talents and have even somewhat competetive DPS.

      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.
