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.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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?

      Hello, I have a reasonably geared subtlety rogue with disappointing dps.  My iLevel is 894 equipped and my artifact level is 54 (max).  A link to my character is provided below.  On Nighthold, depending on my familiarity with the fights, I can do 350-400—which usually puts me in the bottom of the groups I pug.
      I'm pretty sure I am doing something systematically wrong.  I did a quick LFR to generate some logs and have attached them below.  I was worried about my up time for symbols of death, but that doesn't seem to be the issue.  Any insight more experienced rogues can offer would be appreciated.

      I just recently swapped over to subtlety from sin, and have been slightly struggling on the meters since doing so. My artifact weapon is only ilvl 885 in sub compared to 909 for sin, but i cant help but feel like that isnt the only thing bringing me down. I feel like im pretty comfortable on the rotation but something isnt adding up on the meters. Even on my best pulls i still fall wayy behind most of my other guildies. my newest logs. My armory.
      If anyone here could help me out with some tips or advice, it would be much appreciated.

      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.
      Just did some testing on a dummy and in nighthold. The damage still let's your trigger the sprint vanish during the trinket channel, which means you will not loose out on dps from the 3 sec channel time. It would be best to make sure your energy is pretty low and you're not cp capped. It seems you can still proc shadow techniques during the channel as well.
      However it didn't really feel like much of a dps increase, I would habe to practise the timing a bit more. It makes the opener weird. My armory for reference:
