One thing to note, is that Acrobatic Strikes increases the range of Blade Flurry and should not be completely ignored.

That's a good point, though I think the practical usages are still pretty slim. I'll make a notation for clarity though!

Saber Slash Icon Saber Slash is your main filler and Combo Point generator. It deals moderate damage and generates 1 Combo Point each time it strikes. It has a 45% chance to strike an additional time, which also procs Opportunity Icon Opportunity.

In-game it reads as this:

Saber Slash has a 35% chance to strike an additional time, making your next Pistol Shot free.

Where does Between the Eyes find it's place in rotation?

Only used if you need to stun something.

Your guide for Outlaw Rogue does not resemble the one provided by Wowhead.

It looks like Wowhead's is talking about Legion, whereas we are talking about the 7.0 prepatch here

They also seem to do more of a breakdown and an explanation of what each ability does, rather than give a set rotation like we do

Acrobatic Strikes imo is huge for Outlaw rogues aoe.  An extra 3 yards of cleave means you can cleave onto infernals on Manny without being in their aoe range and can hit almost every imp.  With most guilds not having the cohesion and team work as higher end guilds to make sure imps are all dropped with in an 8 yard radius means you lose out on a quarter of the imps unless you have a mass grip and even then thats every other pac.  The aoe potential, the main chunk of outlaw's job, lost by nerfing your aoe by 3 yards in all directions i don't think is outweighed by the mobility gained by the two other choices.  The 30 second leap while good in a clutch avoidance of death no matter how cool it is doesn't outweigh it.  Not to mention most fights other than maybe Hans and Franz won't have you dashing across screen more than every minute in which sprint can be used so the extra 15% doesn't seem to be worth it either.  Even single target it gives you that extra 3 yards of room to move out of something and not lose dps on the boss.

Ultimately, on a tier of  talents like this, the choices are going to be very much based on personal preference.

While you are correct in saying that the extra cleave range is useful, Grappling Hook is at least as useful for instant travel to hit a priority add, avoid mechanics, or even just  to look cool as hell.

If you feel your group isn't coordinated enough to ensure the targets are correctly stacked you can derive benefit from this talent. Ultimately though this tier is basically the old "Shadowstep vs. Burst of Speed" question, where most players felt that the playmaking, lifesaving, and general flexibility of step was much more useful. The same arguments apply to Grappling Hook, especially for progression. If your group isn't coordinated enough to properly stack adds on encounters, no one is forcing you to use Grappling Hook. That said, Acrobatic Strikes is most definitely an inferior talent and really only to be used if you absolutely need that extra range to compensate for a lack of stacking - certainly not something I'd recommend as a default choice.

Wouldn't it be more appropriate to suggest using Adrenaline Rush with, say, two or more of the RtB buffs instead of specifically True Bearing?  I know the combination is good, but I just tried this on a dummy and rolled twelve times in a row before I got it and obviously that's not acceptable in a raid setting which people are coming here for advice on.

The cumulative probability of you not rolling True Bearing after 12 attempts is ~3.2%. You also have plenty of time in advance of Adrenaline Rush to prepare a True Bearing proc, and you only need to cover a 15-second window. Overall you're presenting a fairly unrealistic scenario, but were you to find yourself with 2-3 buffs and Adrenaline Rush off cooldown you should indeed immediately use your cooldown and try and maximize your damage inside of Adrenaline Rush. That said, it should also be known that for said situation to occur you would have made an error leading up to your Adrenaline Rush coming off cooldown which could have been avoided.

So my "error" was not rerolling it six times beforehand so I could... only need to reroll another six times afterwards?  :P 

Don't talk to be about cumulative probability in this game where i have spent 1000+ attempts trying to get the Raven Lord, a "five percent" drop from Anzu.  A cumulative probability that has 23 zeroes after the decimal place before you get to a number.  Eventually I just bought it from the BMAH.  You WILL get a bad run of rolls on progression, repeatedly, I guarantee it.

Also, while it's true that you only need a 1 CP RtB to "cover" the duration of AR, isn't the whole point of this fishing strategy to get maximum reduction on AR cooldown, which would require the full 55 seconds of Pandemic Deeper Strategy True Bearing?  If I had to pick 1CP buffs from Roll the Bones to maximize the effectiveness of AR during its actual uptime it would be probably a combination of Broadsides and Jolly Roger, and sharks would just be cake.  Then I'd hope to get a full duration True Bearing while it was on cooldown.

I also feel like overwriting a Buried Treasure in the now to get more AR in the future is a mistake, and would probably only do that if I could benefit from double trinket buffs under AR by doing so, so that's another edge case to work out.  Actually I think the whole concept is backwards.  you should make sure AR is on cooldown when you have True Bearing, not the other way around.

Adrenaline Rush goes on cooldown the moment you use it, and as you get so many finishers off during that period it is the highest return on the True Bearing buff. As someone that has more progression experience than possibly anyone barring a literal handful, I can definitely agree that occasionally bad RNG can get you down. That doesn't mean you just completely forgo a high percentage chance at the most optimal style of play. If you go into an Adrenaline Rush with a 55-second True Bearing you actually stand a pretty good chance of having an Adrenaline Rush again by the time that buff expires.

In any case, your input is appreciated, and if you want to generate some discussion or compare numbers I recommend heading over to the forums!

I was wondering whether or not it's worth it to cast Saber Slash when im at 5 combo points (using Deeper Strategem) because I have a fear that I might waste the extra combo point that Saber Slash will generate if it procs. And if i'm in the same situation with broadsides, what should I do?

There is current some debate for all Rogue specs whether "always 6" or "5-6" is the ideal method of using finishers. What is known for certain is that the margin between these arguments is so extraordinarily small that it doesn't really matter what you do. Personally I usually do "5-6" when I have a True Bearing buff active because the CDR per Combo Point value is high enough that I feel bad wasting any CP. That said, as noted earlier, the difference in a sim is essentially negligible regardless of current buffs.

Actually..from what I've found out, if you Roll the Bones and get Shark Infested Waters(The 40% crit buff), Between the Eyes can be a quick burst damage attack. It's crits can hit harder than your Run Through when it crits.

Firstly, if you *don't* crit your finisher will do 4x less damage, which is a big risk for damage consistency. Generally this trade off isn't worth it, especially when Critical Strike is your least valued stat (so even with SIW your criticals aren't even near guaranteed).

Secondly, for raiding rogues in HFC you have to account for BHTV, which increased your Run Through damage by enough that it absolutely decimates BTE, whether you crit or not.

Great guide, very enlightening, exactly what I needed.

 

A nitpick: in "Spell Summary", there's an outdated line:

You will start every fight from Stealth Icon Stealth as your Tier 2 talent provides a damage benefit to using your abilities while Stealth Icon Stealth is active.

 

Should also probably mention that in the guide:

Yeah, that's actually already been updated, just waiting for the changes to go live on the site :) Going to stipulate that in all three specialization guides!

If i'm using Vigor as my tier 3 talent choice, should I choose to go "always 5" or go "4-5"?

During my rotation, how many combo points should I spend on Roll the Bones and when should I refresh it?

Thanks again.

      Redditor eke00372 uploaded a video of Argus the Unmaker from PTR. Blizzard opened Antorus for testing and a guild was able to access the raid's final boss, even though testing should have ended with Aggramar. The fight is still very unfinished. The boss can be CCed and isn't even an elite.
      After defeating Aggramar, you talk to Magni and get teleported to the Seat of the Pantheon.
      The fight takes place in an area called Seat of the Pantheon.

      Rewards
      Multiple rewards await after you defeat Legion's final boss.
      Scythe of the Unmaker (Polearm Weapon Transmog).

      Shackled Ur'zul mount drops from Mythic Argus.

      Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal is obtained when you complete Blood of a Titan.

      Everything you need to know about Legendary items in Patch 7.3.2.
      In Patch 7.3.2, Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. Blizzard also added Legendary tokens and a ring that empowers traits from the Netherlight Crucible.
      Upgrading Legendary Items
      In Patch 7.3.2 Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. The Cursed Shard quest is started by looting Cursed Shard. The item has a variety of sources. It can drop in LFR or you can get it by doing the first Random Heroic Dungeon of the day. Once you bring it to Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran, you will get 10 Wakening Essences. Collect 50 Wakening Essences to get Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a Legendary item to 1,000.
      Sources
      The Kirin Tor emissary bag did not reward any essences on PTR, but this can be random and needs further confirmation. Maybe they can only be collected from Argus faction bags. Antorus bosses drop a random amount of essences. Garothi Worldbreaker dropped 4 in LFR.
      Source Amount Status Mythic Order Hall Cache (Once a week) 20 Wakening Essences Confirmed Antorus Bosses (Each boss) 4 Wakening Essences (LFR 1st Boss) Confirmed Emissary Bag (Complete 5 World Quests) ? Wakening Essences Amount TBA First Random Heroic Dungeon (Once a day) 5 Wakening Essences Confirmed Weekly PvP Quests (2v2, 3v3, 10v10)
      ? Wakening Essences Amount TBA Cursed Shard (The Cursed Shard quest / one-time-only) 10 Wakening Essences Confirmed New Legendary Items
      Two Legendary item will be added in Patch 7.3.2. The legendary ring will be available to players that defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher and the trinket is a drop from Argus the Unmakere. The ring's affix increases the effects of Light and Shadow powers from the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. You can find more information in our Netherlight Crucible guide.
      Light Powers: Infusion of Light, Light's Embrace, Light Speed, Refractive Shell, Secure in the Light, Shocklight. Shadow Powers: Chaotic Darkness, Dark Sorrows , Master of Shadows, Murderous Intent, Shadowbind, Torment the Weak. Recently, Blizzard updated one of the Path of the Titans trinkets (Aman'Thul's Vision) to item level 1,000 and now it is a Legendary item that does not count toward the 2 Legendary cap. Path of the Titans trinkets can be upgraded with Pantheon's Blessing up to item level 1,000, so we're not sure yet, if all trinkets will be of Legendary quality after upgrading them to the maximum item level. More information can be found here.
      Item Effect Source Aman'Thul's Vision Approximately 1.4 procs per minute Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant you 6,716 Speed, Avoidance, and Leech for 12 sec.

      Aman'Thul's Grandeur
      When empowered by the Pantheon, your Intellect is increased by 6,700 for 15 sec.
      Drops from Argus the Unmaker. The item is not listed in the standard Legendary loot tables. Insignia of the Grand Army Increase the effects of Light and Shadow powers granted by the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. The Death of a Titan (Quest) - Defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher. Legendary Tokens
      Patch 7.3.2 adds new Legendary tokens to help keep gameplay on your main rewarding. Legendary tokens will start dropping when you collect ALL Legendary items on your class, in other words, on your main. Collecting ALL Legendary items designated for a single specialization won't suffice. Legendary tokens are BoA, so they can be sent to your alts (even when they are on a different realm). Use them to discover a random Legendary item.

      You can start collecting Wakening Essences right away. You don't need to loot Cursed Shard or accept any quests first. All Legendary items that drop after Antorus opens will have item level 1,000. All crafted Legendary items will be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus opens. Awoken Titan Essence is used to upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. You need to collect more Wakening Essences in order to upgrade additional Legendary items. Legendary tokens won't drop unless you collect ALL legendary items on your class. Blizzard mentioned in the latest Q/A that the team is closely monitoring the drop rate of Legendary items. Two legendaries are a standard for raiding, so they may increase the drop rate of the first few Legendary items on a character. At the moment, Blizzard has no plans to increase the Legendary item cap to 3. If you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments.

      Antorus will open soon and it's time to look at all the trinkets that drop inside the new raid that will go live with Patch 7.3.2.
      An overview of all trinkets from Antorus, sorted by class roles.
      Last week, we previewed all Tier 21 set bonuses and in this overview, we're exploring all trinkets and their various effects. All the data should be up-to-date as of the latest Patch 7.3.2 Build 25326.
      Tank Trinkets
      It's interesting to point out the synergy between Eye of F'harg and Eye of Shatug. Both trinkets have two effects and drop from the Hounds of Sargeras (second boss). Every 30 seconds, you can switch between those two trinkets. I imagine it to work exactly like Anathema / Benediction did back in Vanilla. Obviously, only 1 Eye of the Hounds trinket can be equipped at the same time and if your nearby tank-specialized ally bears the opposite eye, you gain either Versatility or Armor. It will be interesting to see how the switching plays out during progression.
      Name Effect Source Aggramar's Conviction Aggramar's Fortitude - Taking damage has a chance to increase your Versatility by 4,354 for 14 sec. When empowered by the Pantheon, your maximum health is increased by 1,619,543 for 15 sec, and you are healed to full health. Argus the Unmaker Apocalypse Drive Hammer-Forged - Reduce the damage of the next 10 melee attacks against you by up to 981,700 each. Lasts up to 20 sec. Suffering melee attacks reduces the cooldown of this ability by 1 sec. (2 min cooldown) Garothi Demolisher Diima's Glacial Aegis Chilling Nova - Increase your Armor by 8,357 for 12 sec, and inflict 348,257 Frost damage to enemies within 12 yds and reduce their movement speed by 70% for 12 sec. (60 sec cooldown) Asara, Mother of Night Eye of F'harg Eye of the Hounds - Grants 528 Versatility to a nearby tank-specialized ally bearing the opposite Eye.
      Swap Hounds - Transform to Eye of Shatug. (30 sec cooldown)
      F'harg Eye of Shatug Eye of the Hounds - Grants ??? Armor to a nearby tank-specialized ally bearing the opposite Eye.
      Swap Hounds - Transform to Eye of F'harg. (30 sec cooldown)
      F'harg Riftworld Codex Unstable Portals - Taking damage has a chance to open a portal to another world, either healing you, providing an absorption shield, or empowering you with shadowflame magic. Approximately 3 procs per minute. Portal Keeper Hasabel Smoldering Titanguard Bulwark of Flame - Channel a Bulwark of Flame that absorbs 18,405,746 damage for 3 sec. When the Bulwark expires you unleash 4 Waves of Flame, dealing 966,089 Fire damage to all enemies in their path. You cannot move or use abilities during Bulwark of Flame. (2 min cooldown) Aggramar Healer Trinkets
      Name Effect Source Carafe of Searing Light Refreshing Agony - Sear an enemy with holy light, inflicting 588,708 Holy damage over 18 sec. Restores 4,991 mana each time damage is dealt. (60 sec cooldown, 50 yd range)  Varimathras Eonar's Compassion Eonar's Verdant Embrace - Your healing effects have a chance to grow an Emerald Blossom nearby, which heals a random injured ally for 127,273 every 2 sec. Lasts 12 sec. When empowered by the Pantheon, your next 4 direct healing spells grant the target a shield that prevents 250,782 damage for 30 sec. Approximately 1.2 procs per minute. Argus the Unmaker Garothi Feedback Conduit Feedback Loop - Your healing effects have a chance to increase your Haste by 855 for 8 sec, stacking up to 5 times. This is more likely to occur when you heal allies who are at low health. Approximately 10 procs per minute. Garothi Worldbreaker Highfather's Machination Highfather's Timekeeping - Your healing effects have a chance to apply a charge of Highfather's Timekeeping for 60 sec, max 5 charges. When the ally falls below 50% health, Highfather's Timekeeping is consumed to instantly heal them for 216,140 health per charge. Approximately 10 procs per minute. Asara, Mother of Night Ishkar's Felshield Emitter Felshield - Place a Felshield on an ally, absorbing 2,416,492 damage for 9 sec. When the shield is consumed or expires, it explodes dealing 50% of the absorbed damage as Fire split amongst all enemies within 8 yds. (60 sec cooldown, 50 yd range) Admiral Svirax Tarratus Keystone Tarratus Keystone - Open a portal at an ally's location that releases brilliant light, restoring 1,633,314 health split amongst injured allies within 20 yds. (1.5 min cooldown, 50 yd range) Portal Keeper Hasabel Caster / Ranged DPS Trinkets
      Name Effect Source Acrid Catalyst Injector Cycle of the Legion - Your damaging spells that critically strike have a chance to increase your Haste, Mastery, or Critical Strike by 92 for 45 sec, stacking up to 5 times. When any stack reaches 5, all effects are consumed to grant you 2,183 of all three attributes for 12 sec. Approximately 9 procs per minute.  Garothi Demolisher Norgannon's Prowess Norgannon's Command - Your damaging spells have a chance to increase your Intellect by 11,483 for 12 sec. When empowered by the Pantheon, you gain 6 charges of Norgannon's Command for 15 sec. Your damaging spells expend a charge to inflict an additional 161,332 damage to the target, from a random school of magic. Argus the Unmaker Sheath of Asara Shadow Blades - Your damaging spells have a chance to conjure 6 Shadow Blades. After 2 sec, the swords begin launching foward, each dealing 56,864 Shadow damage to the first enemy in their path and increasing damage taken from your subsequent Shadow Blades by 10% for 3 sec, up to 50%. Approximately 1.7 procs per minute. Asara, the Mother of Night Terminus Signaling Beacon Legion Bombardment - Call a Legion ship to bombard the target's location for 9 sec, dealing 353,311 Fire damage to all targets within 12 yds, including the ship. (2 min cooldown, 50 yd range) Admiral Svirax Melee DPS Trinkets
      Name Effect Source Forgefiend's Fabricator Fire Mines - Your melee and ranged attacks have a chance to plant Fire Mines at the enemy's feet. Fire Mines detonate after 15 sec, inflicting 63,094 Fire damage to all enemies within 12 yds. Approximately 7 procs per minute. Garothi Demolisher Golganneth's Vitality Golganneth's Thunderous Wrath - Your damaging abilities have a chance to create a Ravaging Storm at your target's location, inflicting 524,262 Nature damage split among all enemies within 6 yds over 6 sec. When empowered by the Pantheon, your autoattacks cause an explosion of lightning dealing [ 4,785,800% of Mainhand Weapon Speed ] Nature damage to all enemies within 8 yds of the target. Lasts 15 sec. Approximately 1.8 procs per minute. Argus the Unmaker Gorshalach's Legacy Echo of Gorshalach - Your melee attacks have a chance to grant an Echo of Gorshalach. On reaching 15 applications, you lash out with a devastating combination of attacks, critically striking enemies in a 15 yd cone in front of you for 1,927,240 Fire damage. Approximately 10 procs per minute.
      Gorshalach's Legacy - Lash out with a devastating combination of attacks, critically striking enemies in a 15 yd cone in front of you for 1,927,240 Fire damage. Consumes all applications of Echo of Gorshalach.
      Aggramar Seeping Scourgewing Shadow Strike - Your melee attacks have a chance to deal 329,772 Shadow damage to the target. If there are no other enemies within 8 yds of them, this deals an additional 176,662 damage. Approximately 3 procs per minute. Varimathras Shadow-Singed Fang Flames of F'harg - Your melee and ranged abilities have a chance to increase your Strength or Agility by 4,548 for 12 sec. Approximately 3 procs per minute.
      Corruption of Shatug - Your autoattacks have a chance to increase your Critical Strike by 2,201 for 12 sec. Approximately 3 procs per minute.
      F'harg Hybrid Trinkets
      Aman'Thul's Vision's secondary "When empowered by the Pantheon..." effect increases your primary attribute, not just Intellect as indicated in the tooltip. The item ignores the maximum cap of Legendary items (2) that can equipped at once. In order for the secondary "When empowered by the Pantheon..." effects to proc, your raid members need to have four Path of the Titans trinkets equipped. The proc only works in Antorus the Burning Throne and Aman'Thul's Vision's buff serves as a wild card for the effect to activate. You can learn more about Pantheon trinkets here.

      While it won't function in Mythic+ we did change the six requirement so you only need four unique buffs to trigger the Pantheon secondary proc inside Antorus. You can have any possible combination of the unique five to activate this additional proc. Aman'Thul's Vision ignores the rule as a "wildcard" filling any gap that you might be missing from the other five. Trinkets listed in this section can be used and are winnable by multiple class roles.

      So far, each Legion patch has been released 77 days apart. If Blizzard keeps to that schedule, Patch 7.3.2 would go live on November 14, 2017 in Americas or November 15, 2017 in Europe.
      Antorus the Burning Throne
      If the patch goes live as expected, Antorus the Burning Throne raid would open on the same day in Normal / Heroic difficulty with LFR's first wing & Mythic difficulty available one week later (November 21).
      The background download has an estimated size of ~850 MB.

      Learn more about the fate of Azeroth and what caused the Silithus Wound! This article is obviously full of spoilers. You have been warned!
      Spoiler Alert
      To put you into perspective, we started speculating that Argus the Unmaker will have a secret Mythic phase involving Sargeras. From the latest Khadgar audio files in Patch 7.3.2 (courtesy of MMO-Champion), we learned that Sargeras wounded Azeroth. Below is the full transcription:
      "The Legion is defeated, its master imprisoned, but in his final spiteful act, Sargeras may have doomed us all. Our world is wounded champion. Its life essence seeps out into the sands just as Magni foresaw. This mere drop of Argus' blood surges with incredible power, the might of a titan. If the blood of Azeroth also proves to be a source of such strength, those who seek to rule this world will stop at nothing to possess it. The days ahead may be dark indeed. For now, go to Silithus. Gaze upon the wound in the world with your own eyes. We will find a way to save Azeroth, I know it."
      Chaud from MMO-Champion also noticed a shirt description that has later been removed for obvious reasons:
      "Before he could be taken by the remaining titans, Sargeras, the unholy leader of the Burning Legion, plunged his sword into the depths of Azeroth."
      Now that we have all the background information about the Silithus Wound, let's check it out in more detail! Note that this is a phased version of Silithus that has four location entries in the game files so far:
      Silithus The Wound North Alliance Silithus The Wound East Horde Silithus The Wound Main Silithus The Wound West Sargeras' sword is plunged into Azeroth, but the model is still encrypted.

      The final titan is wounded and it's an ideal time for the Black Empire to rise! More information will be available at BlizzCon 2017. Check out the full schedule here.
