Outlaw - Roll The Bones Questions

Sign in to follow this  

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

      In order to improve the AoE performance of Shadow Priests in short duration multitarget situations, changes are planned for the class with next week's maintenance.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the next weekly maintenance, we'll be shifting around some of Shadow Priests' damage sources with the goal of improving their AOE damage performance in short-duration multitarget situations - namely dungeon trash packs.

      The nature and lifetime of dungeon trash packs makes it hard for Shadow Priests to ramp up to their full damage potential as part of their rotation. These changes should improve that situation, with a mostly neutral effect for overall performance in longer-duration raid fights.  Void Eruption No longer deals a separate damage event for each of your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch on each target. Instead, deals a single damage event to all targets that have EITHER your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch. Void Eruption damage increased by 700% Shadow Crash Cooldown reduced to 20 sec. (down from 30 sec) Insanity generation increased to 20. (up from 15) Missile speed increased by 60%. Mind Sear (Passive) Damage increased by 50%. Heart of the Void (Legendary) Increases Void Eruption’s damage by 75% (down from 300%) and heals you for 25% (down from 40%) of the damage done. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff. The overall effect is mostly neutral. Shadow Word: Pain/Vampiric Touch Damage reduced by 4%. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff in extended fights.

      World of Warcraft is currently on discount and redditor Gankeros pointed out an interesting fact; a level 100 boost costs just $25 and that's not the only thing!
      Level 100 Boost for $25
      Up to 8 World of Warcraft licenses can be attached to a single Battle.net account. The best thing is that the level 100 boost is account-wide, so after you activate the secondary game license, you can use the level 100 boost on your main (primary) license.
      Go to Account Management and under "Game Accounts", navigate to World of Warcraft and select the "Play for free" option to create a new World of Warcraft license. You should be then offered a WoW bundle for $25 / 25 EUR.
      Other Benefits of 2 World of Warcraft Accounts
      The standard Battle Chest comes with 30 days of game time and Black Friday is the ideal time to buy another WoW copy in case you've ever wanted to try out multiboxing. ISBoxer should be your go-to multiboxing software for World of Warcraft. They even offer a trial and it's really easy to set up. Don't forget to recruit yourself before doing any of this!
      If you don't need Legion, it's still good to least buy the Battle Chest for gold making. The first account is obviously your main and the second can be used for sniping. It gets even better if you have two monitors and you log in simultaneously on both accounts. Sniping is well worth it and the account will pay for itself in the long run. What exactly is sniping? The process of constantly checking the last page of the Auction House for cheap deals using preset filters. The main issue with a single license is that you can't be logged in on two characters at the same time. With two accounts, you can have one constantly sniping the Auction House, while you're playing your main.

      Did you miss any matches played at BlizzCon 2017? No problem! Blizzard uploaded a recap video of the WoW Arena World Championship with all important highlights.
      Congratulations to this year's world champions - team ABC! For more BlizzCon coverage check out our BlizzCon 2017 content hub.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Miss any matches? Forget the final? Wonder who won? Look no further! We have all the action from the Arena World Championship world finals at BlizzCon 2017 right here.
      WANT THE TL;DR? WATCH THE RECAP VIDEO
      HOW CHAMPIONS ARE MADE
      In the opening week, ten teams descended on Anaheim in the run-up to the finals, with two teams eliminated on day one.
      Panda Global took down Rockets Eclipse with relative ease, to be met by defending world champions Method: Triforce. Panda Global were on fire, with the fever-pitch energy of the crowd fanning the flames. They beat the champions 3-1 in the semi-final to win their place in the final.
      EU VS NA
      Across the bracket, the top-seeded North America team—Method Synergy—faced Europe’s second seeded team, ABC. ABC’s tried and tested formula of Alec on Mage and Niksi on Rogue, seen the previous year, worked like a charm taking down NA’s #1 team 3-2.
      ABC EASY AS 123…4
      The finals in 2017 were once again NA vs EU. The comeback kids on Panda Global looked a little shaky and struggled to hold form, testing the limits of their passionate fans’ patience and creating a tense, exciting atmosphere throughout the arena. Sensing victory, ABC took full control; beating Panda Global in a nail-biting set of games 4-0—earning them their rightful place in World of Warcraft Arena history.
      CONGRATULATIONS TO ABC: WORLD CHAMPIONS!

      ABC Crowned World Champions
