Outlaw - Roll The Bones Questions

5 posts in this topic

Hey,

I tried to collect information about roll the bones by reading and watching guides but i feel like there are so many details that are not mentioned. So it leads me to create this thread with all my recent questions that came to my mind while playing this spec. I would really appreciate it if someone who is more experienced than me in theorycrafting could reply.


1. Ill start with general questions when I go through my normal rotation

     with NO cooldowns activated.


    - 1.1  I  heard that I want to reroll until I have 2 buffs active and

            that no single buff is worth keeping in my normal rotation. Are there

            exceptions? Do I want to reroll some buffs even if 2 are active? (Saw in    

           a thread that you want to reroll Grand Meele)


  - 1.2  I know there is no real difference if I cast Run Through at 5+ or 6 CP but       

           does that change when the buff Broadsides is up? Do I want to cast Run

           Through at 4+ CP to not waste 2 CP if the Pistol Shot procs? If not, does it

           change when I ALSO have the buff Jolly Roger up because  more

           pistol shot procs = more wasted CPs?

           

2. Following questions are about the OPENING sequence with Adrenaline and

    Artifact.


   - 2.1 The Icy-Veins guide tells me to keep Shark Invested Waters or 2 buffs.

           Other sources say that true bearing is also worth keeping because it resets

           Adrenaline Rush, is it good to keep this buff aswell?


   - 2.2 Are there exceptions aswell with the 2 buffs ? I feel like Broadsides, Jolly

          Roger and Buried Treasure are useless in the opener because of

          Adrenaline Rush and Artifact. Whats the benefit in rolling Broadsides +

          Jolly Roger ?


  - 2.3 Do you always want  have the in 2.1 mentioned buffs up BEFORE you use

        your cooldowns even if u get unlucky and fish multiple times or do you just

        use CDs and fish while using them ? It doesnt really make a difference for

        me if I fish 4 times before CDs or 4 times in CDs except I have DMG trinkets

        or other DMG increases activated, right?


Okay these are all the things that bothered me while playing

It would be awesome if you guys could discuss these questions with me !

 

Thanks,

Quentio

I actually posted a thread a few minutes ago which is more up to date than the guide on the main site

This question is answered in there if you want to go give it a read

You always want to be using finishers at 5CP or 6CP. If you have 4, cast either SS or PS. If you have 5 or 6, cast RT.

In short, yeah they're not ideal and it's ok to reroll them, but you don't need to.

This is outlined a little at the bottom of that info thread

Yeah you can fish for buffs while you have cooldowns active there's nothing wrong with that. Again, check the info thread for more details.

Thank you very much for the answer. Interesting that you want to always keep tb. I have the legendary boots for rogue which increase my dmg by 20% of my increased movement speed so i am using sprint as a cooldown in my opener. I think under this circumstance i dont want to reroll while bursting. So would it be a dmg increase to always roll ie or tb before i activate it ?

If you get lucky enough to get them it's a bonus, but I don't think it's worth delaying cooldowns for

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 3/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: Will consider all specs, but would love to add a dedicated Shadow Priest & Elemental Shaman.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you a deeper dive into the raid team.

      The latest Alpha Build added Blight - a new Mythic Keystone affix. Damage and healing done is increased when injured, and reduced when healthy.
      Blight is a new interesting Keystone affix added in Battle for Azeroth Alpha Build 26032. Damage and healing done is increased when injured, so it will be up to the healers to find the sweet spot between having party members deal more damage and dead, because healing a player to full health will not be efficient if your party wants to utilize the damage increase.
      Affix Description Blight Damage and healing done increased when injured, and reduced when healthy.
      Relentless is a second affix that might be added in Battle for Azeroth. It has been around for a while, but hasn't been implemented yet. When the affix is active, trash mobs are temporarily immune to Loss of Control effect, meaning they can't be feared, mind controlled, stunned, rooted etc. for a short period of time.
      Affix Description Relentless Non-boss enemies are granted temporary immunity to Loss of Control effects.
      We'll keep you updated about new affixes as they become available.

      The WoW MVP program will be moved to an application-based recruitment system soon. Existing MVPs should reapply for the process. Open recruitment begins early next week, after the President's Day holiday in NA.
      Blizzard (Source)
      <This is going to be a bit of a meta discussion, and not something focused on World of Warcraft, as a whole. Those of you who are active on the forums and among the other World of Warcraft communities will probably have more thoughts on this than those who visit the forums on rare occasion.>

      Hey guys!

      Over the past year we've had it on our plate to breathe a bit of life in the MVP program for World of Warcraft (you may have seen me mention it here and there, and I know the MVPs have been eagerly waiting for movement on this). After nearly a year of discussions, we're finally ready to start moving forward with a refresh of the MVP program for World of Warcraft!

      Most of our active posters here know that when the MVP program was founded, it's goal was to recognize active forums poster who contributed to our community through things like high-quality class guides or assisting and guiding new players with helpful information. While being active and posting in a constructive manner will still be something we take into account, we realize that we now live in a world with Icy Veins, Wowhead, Reddit, and numerous other communities that didn't necessarily exist at the onset of this project. This leads our MVP group to not being able to actively fulfill it's original purpose on our singular forums platform.

      All of this led us to think we needed to be realigning the purpose of the program slightly, as we want to more actively empower the group to engage in discussions with us on various community issues, happening on the forums and in our greater community. This would also include working to provide insight into community and gameplay feedback they may see around the community, with direct conversations between the WoW community team and the WoW MVP group as a whole on a regular basis, much as we do in our conversations with folks on Reddit, Discord, etc., something that hasn't been utilized to its best.

      To facilitate this, we will be moving the WoW MVP program to an application-based recruitment system, which will address a few concerns we have currently with the recruitment process, as well as letting us asked targeted questions to candidates during certain recruitment periods, and hopefully widening the audience. We expect to open recruitment early next week, after the President’s Day holiday, so be on the lookout for a thread if you're interested!

      Of note, these changes DO NOT affect any region or franchise outside of World of Warcraft in North America, and these changes also do not apply to our awesome Customer and Technical Support MVPs who do great things.

      We look forward to getting to work on the program and hearing your feedback!
      I hope this doesn't mean Crepe is losing his MVP status. I notice community MVPs are not listed as being spared these changes.
      We're asking the MVPs to reapply for the process, but we will be keeping everyone who is able to meet the newer standards going forward! 

      I wouldn't expect any of the familiar faces you know to go away unless it's their own choice.

      It seems Blizzard plans to remove First Aid from the game in Battle for Azeroth or completely overhaul it.
      In Alpha Build 26032, First Aid achievement have moved over to Legacy.

      In addition to that, Deep Sea Bandage and Sun-Bleached Linen Bandage have been added to Tailoring instead of First Aid, which leads us to believe that Blizzard either plans to completely remove the now obsolete secondary profession or completely revisit it.
