Help with Logs

6 posts in this topic

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.

If anyone here could help me out with some tips or advice, it would be much appreciated.

I played sub on all of normal and 5/10 heroic, you have to click the subtlety icon at the top of the graph...

Huh. I didn't even know that was an option. Learn new things every day I suppose.

What I'm noticing is that a lot of your Shadow Dances aren't being taken the fullest advantage of - what I mean by that is that you aren't getting in 4 casts of Shadowstrike when you Dance, or 3 + Symbols of Death

There's a couple tricks to getting better at this:

1) Manipulate your way to 5 (or 6) CP finishers by waiting to Dance until just after Shadow Techniques has procced to give you a point. So you get a proc to go from 0-1, then SD > SS (3CP) > SS(5CP) > Evis (0CP) > SS(2CP) > SS(2CP > proc (5CP) > Evis. This is much more possible if you reeeeally drop the number of Backstab casts (which you do pretty well), and only use BS to avoid capping on Energy

2) a) When you have to use Symbols of Death, wait until after a finisher. Because SoD doesn't have the chance to refund Energy that SS does, if you use it before you're ready for a finisher you can completely screw yourself out of having any Energy left at all. I usually plan mine so I go SD > SS > SS > Evis > SS > SoD. Saving it for last guarantees that you'll get off your SS casts, and if you don't quite reach that 40 Energy mark for another SS you can fall back on refreshing SoD without losing much.

2) b) If that finisher ends up being 6CP, you have the 20% chance of refunding additional Energy, which effectively means you get a free refresh on SoD. When this happens you can cast SoD before SS, because you're guaranteed to have the Energy for it, you can get the free crit on your SS cast, and you might luck into a 4th SS cast anyways.

This still is the case when using Anticipation? I noticed you are saying 6 CP a lot. I swapped to MoS and Anticipation recently and find it to be a much smoother rotation since i have CoF and use Shadowblades quite often.

The section you quoted specifically is applicable in every scenario, since you'll only ever hit the 5CP mark unless you get an unlucky proc of 2CP from ST which is ok. It shouldn't happen that often, and since you aren't spending any resources to get it, you aren't really wasting anything

The only part that isn't really applicable with Anticipation instead of Deeper Stratagem is the bit about the extra Energy proc giving you a free SoD.

All of that said, once you get the 4-set, Anticipation is actually pretty valuable, because your CP overflow is insane. It does change the playstyle, but it's nothing too drastic. It allows you to pool more CP before you have to spend them, which generally means you'll be playing with 8-9CP in most situations. While it should just be a QoL change, Finality: Evis is actually bugged at the moment where the damage boost for the buffed Evis passes the 20% mark. Even if you don't spend more than 5CP on the cast, if you have 10CP saved up (5CP + 5 Anticipation) it will buff the damage to 40% for the next Evis. This bug does not work with Nightblade

      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.

      Did some reading on how the subtlety rotation works in the AMR sim and noticed it saying 
      http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/theory/rotation/amrroguesubtletydefault?spec=RogueSubtlety&version=live 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.
      Edit:
      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: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/argent-dawn/Jjajangmyeon/advanced

      Hey,
      So the CoF trinket dropped for me yesterday, which means Im having a lot more uptime of Shadowblades. I guess its a good time to switch to Anticipation, since i will have a lot more CP overflow (+4 Set Bonus) and Deeper Strategem got nerfed too. Damage-wise i don't see a difference to DS though, while SimC calculates 20k+ dps with Anticipation. And should i always stack CP to 9-10 when i don't have the Finality Eviscerate Buff ? Im just torn between these two talents.
      Another Problem i've noticed is SimC and Icy Veins say that Weaponmaster is better than Master of Subtlety although "top sub rogues" still play with MoS. Is there any reason behind that?
      Incase you need it: http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/character/blackmoore/Yatan/simple
      cheers

      Now with patch 7.1.5 out and the boots/talent energy refund being nerfed, does energetic stabbing become our most sought after relic trait?
      Is there any order of best > worst amongst the relic traits?

      Hi guys,
      First of all, sorry about my bad english, but i'll try to write well here.
      I'm returning to play with my rogue and trying to get him to at least heroic contend on the atual content.
      The guild made a run last night all through Normal EN and Nyth HC, and I was a little disappointed with my performance...
      Can u guys help me?
      I already saw that I could improve in SoD uptime, but i'm having problems with my energy management.
      Any help you suggest I'll be very grateful.
