Mythic Archi specific tips + Sub rotation

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys

So my wife has been progressing on Mythic Archi for a while with her guild and her dps is definitely on the low side. She is still not 100% used to the subtlety rotation so that's probably one of the reasons but I was hoping one of you could give some specific tips to increase her DPS on Archi.

Here's her armory (739 ilvl)

Here's some logs from today

Last week:

If anyone feels like they're willing to chat with her on mumble or something and give her some tips, that would be great too, I feel like that's probably the easiest way for her to learn and see what she is doing wrong/different.

I play a ret pally and have 0 experience with rogues so I can't tell her how to do sub, just trying to be a helpful husband here and help her out a bit. Doing low dps is definitely getting to her and it's stressing her out a bit.

Appreciate any help guys! Thanks

Ok well before breaking anything down too much, I'd like to suggest working on her opener. 


I took a quick look through about 5 of the logs from the first set you linked - in each one of them, the opener is different. This leads me to believe that she isn't sure what she should be doing, and there weren't any logs from any other bosses to prove otherwise.


The opener should be:

  • Premed 11s before the pull
  • SnD 1s before the pull
  • Vanish + Prepot on the pull
  • Shadow Reflection
  • Rupture
  • Shadow Dance
  • Preparation (first free gcd inside Shadow Dance, normally with around 2.5-1.5 seconds remaining)
  • Vanish (after Dance

Practicing this and pulling it off properly is crucial, since it takes advantage of all your cooldowns and procs and multiplies them all with Soul Cap. Practice this on a target dummy for an hour or two minimum... I'm not kidding, the first 15-20 seconds of a fight should be complete muscle memory , since they shouldn't change at all every time.


I also checked the longest fight for uptimes on her maintenance spells - 81% uptime on Rupture is very very low, as is 91% on SnD (although it's better). I would suggest that an absolute minimum of 98% on both be a target to reach for, if not 100%.


If you want to pm me to talk in Mumble or whatever feel free, and we can try to set up a time

Thanks so much, passed on the info, she'll be practicing it this weekend, I'll pm you her ID aswell, she should be available most of the weekend, pretty sure that having a chat with her on mumble would help her out even more.

      Did some reading on how the subtlety rotation works in the AMR sim and noticed it saying from here
      Does this mean if I have dos equipped, and activate both sprint and dos at the same time the damage done won't prevent me from getting the vanish? Or is this related to using dos during the vanish effect making it not break stealth?
      I haven't had time to test this myself as I'm at work, but if anyone has any experience with this I would appreciate some feedback.

      So the CoF trinket dropped for me yesterday, which means Im having a lot more uptime of Shadowblades. I guess its a good time to switch to Anticipation, since i will have a lot more CP overflow (+4 Set Bonus) and Deeper Strategem got nerfed too. Damage-wise i don't see a difference to DS though, while SimC calculates 20k+ dps with Anticipation. And should i always stack CP to 9-10 when i don't have the Finality Eviscerate Buff ? Im just torn between these two talents.
      Another Problem i've noticed is SimC and Icy Veins say that Weaponmaster is better than Master of Subtlety although "top sub rogues" still play with MoS. Is there any reason behind that?
      Incase you need it:

      Now with patch 7.1.5 out and the boots/talent energy refund being nerfed, does energetic stabbing become our most sought after relic trait?
      Is there any order of best > worst amongst the relic traits?

      Hi guys,
      First of all, sorry about my bad english, but i'll try to write well here.
      I'm returning to play with my rogue and trying to get him to at least heroic contend on the atual content.
      The guild made a run last night all through Normal EN and Nyth HC, and I was a little disappointed with my performance...
      Can u guys help me?
      I already saw that I could improve in SoD uptime, but i'm having problems with my energy management.
      Any help you suggest I'll be very grateful.
      Thanks in advance.

      So right now I play Sub as my main spec. I mained outlaw for the first week or so of Legion and honestly I hated sub (not sure why) but after I tried it, it is now my preferred spec among the 3. I know that sub scales the best with gear and is the most superior spec around 870ilv too. I never see sub in pve and usually outlaw/sin mainly (for mythic+ and raids) so I was wondering if I am doing anything wrong?
      For my talents, I use weaponmaster as it is very good for aoe pulls (I can pull about 400k dps on 3-4 targets) then followed by the traditional talents for pve sub (I go master of subtlety for raids) 
      I know my stats are not the best for sub as I need to get more mastery/vers rather than haste (crit is still pretty good if i'm correct)
      I couldn't spec into Akaari's Soul as it breaks cc in pvp with means I loose a hefty amount of dps which is very annoying and I am debating to repsec into it and put up with it in pvp for the extra dps increase.
      My weapon pathing looks like this:
      I seem to be doing everything correctly for dps but I do about 250-300k dps on single target and stays about 200k the whole time. Sometimes can go up to 350-400k depending on how smooth the fight goes but if it's anything to do with my weapon/talents/ilv/stats and even playstyle then please let me know, thanks!
      Edit: I have respecced my weapon to now look like this: 
      I should be doing better now ^^ Appreciate the help
