Confused about Talent Combo's

4 posts in this topic

Hey all,

 

Loooong time lurker here, I just had to make a post about the various talent combo's you can take as an Assassination Rogue. Bleed/Poison, EP or MP or things like Exsang or Agonizing.

 

I'm currently:        39% crit / 14% Haste / 90% Mastery. I know that haste is like almost useless on Sin rogue but I'm just gearing up (854ilvl).

Now the thing is, I'm currently running MP and Exsang and can get around 275k-290k steady DPS (on dummies that is). While I've tried the recommended EP and Agonizing build I get to around 300k for like 15 secs and then it dips into 265k to 250k.

Now for my opener and rotation:

 

Stealth > Garrote > Rupture > 2x Mutilate > Vendetta > Mutilate to 6 when not > Vanish > Rupture > Mutilate2x > Exsang > Envenom at 5/6 > Kingsbane.

I refresh my Garrote and Rupture when they've run out for the Exsang to do it's thing. Otherwise I refresh them around 4 or so seconds. I use my CD's as soon as they come up except for Vendetta, I usually dump my energy fast and then Vendetta.

 

How come I perform better with a supposedly worse build?

Idk anything about posting logs and all that but my character is named Xinshi on VentureCo.

Agonizing Poison takes over as you get better gear, Exsang is good at lower gear levels

Make sure you take advantage of your Elaborate Planning windows properly

So just to be sure, I keep on stacking Mastery like I'm doing right now? Since it outscales the Exsang bleed build? What am I supposed to with Vers/Crit? Agility>Mastery>Crit=Vers right?

      Hello all, 
      I've recently been falling behind in DPS despite getting better gear and iLvl, and I know I could be doing way better.
      I used to get purples and oranges almost every fight but as of late I've been getting blues and sometimes even greens.
      I finally got shoulders the other day and I think I'm not using them correctly as well, also have seen a lot of people using NBF even with shoulders instead of DoS after the subterfuge patch, idk what's better.
       
      Any help would be greatly appreciated, also any trinket / legendary changes for certain fights would be a great help.
      Legendaries: KJ, Cloak, Bracers, Shoulders
      Trinkets: NBF 890, DoS 895, CoF 890
      Also idk if my stats are current anymore as well, LMK. Been stacking crit since ever since I got 150% mastery, I don't know if this is optimal anymore.

      So I've been pushing and pushing to get my DPS up over the course of the new expansion.  I've managed to bag my self the legendary shoulders and feet. I've been looking at logs and trying to improve things. I learnt a new opener (which massively improved my dps) and got my crit up (as I noticed other rogues had much higher crit than me).
      And now I just don't know what to do. I just can't seem to get better!
      I'll put a link to logs from the last heroic nighthold we did. It wasn't my best night performance wise  anyway (i'm playing on a potato and we had a huge raid group - fps sat between 6-15 for the whole raid). I think I'm doing something wrong with my main rotation when compared to the other rogue than joined us but I just don't know what it is. I'm stumped.

      So if anyone can see obvious mistakes then please shout at me so I can fix them. It's getting really frustrating!    You should be able to get to past logs through this link too.

      Any help would be appreciated

      So I'm always in the lower end of things when it comes to my parses, which I know on certain fights I struggle with bleeds and other things when heavy amounts of switching and running take place (Elisande/Gul'dan).  I am sticking to the icy-veins opener in most cases (maybe heroic Guldan a bit different when I try to save Vendetta for empowered eyes and such). My biggest thing I feel like I'm missing is when to properly pool energy, I'm almost ALWAYS casting which I know shouldn't be the case really.  I know my opener DPS won't be as high as some because of only having footpads, but sustained it should be pretty high since I have two MA, CoF, and footpads. Just feel like I'm leaving some on the table because my parses are always very, very low like sub 50%.
