Hey Icy Veins,

I created an account to ask this question because it's something I've been toying with the past few nights. I'll preface and say that I'm no hardcore raider, but do want to get into heroics eventually. I'm currently playing Outlaw, and wish to continue so, however notice that no matter what I do with RtB (knowing the proper reroll rules), my DPS is garbage. I'm only 850 currently, so can't rely on specific pieces of endgame gear to improve this. It's just too sporadic, unpredictable. I also tend to PvP a lot, so the inconsistency is not helpful.

So I tried Slice and Dice the other night and was actually very pleasantly surprised. Not only did I see an overall DPS *increase* on several minutes of rotation target dummies, but I found it played out much nicer too. I could spam things. I was getting Saber Slash procs more from spamming. More CP's = more fun, and apparently also more damage. So I started playing around a lot with my Talents.

I'm wondering if anyone else is running Slice and Dice currently, and what talents they've chosen? I've currently tested that Vigor + Alacrity + Swordmaster gives me the most consistently high DPS in a mostly stationary fight. Deeper Stratagem was a close second, but it didn't change my DPS that much, more just how the spec felt. Harder hitting, less frequently.

SnD will give you a dps increase if you aren't using RtB correctly, so you aren't doing anything wrong by swapping.

That said, I don't know what you're doing for RtB, cause you don't have logs. If you'd like me to look at them I can see what I see

      Hi all!
      I am trying to come to grips with my outlaw rogue and try and master the rotation the best I can after playing a fury warrior for so long. I was lucky enough to get Insignia of Ravenholdt and the Mantle of the Master Assassin on my first two legendaries so I am trying to run the SnD build of 1213321. In terms of a complete SnD rotation I was struggling to find the correct sequence anywhere. From what I can figure out does this look correct?
      So my opener/ is:
      Potion of Prolonged Power -> Curse of the Dreadblades/Ambush (Macro together) -> Adrenaline Rush -> SnD -> Ghostly Strike -> Run Through -> Vanish -> Ambush -> Run Through and then Saber Slash/Run Through until Curse of the Dreadblades is finished. 
      Then its just a case of refreshing Ghostly Strike and keeping up SnD at 6 points and Run Through when at 6 points, using a combo of Saber Slash/Ghostly Strike/Free Pistol Shot. So when I have 5 combo points I tend to use my free pistol shot so I dont overshoot 6 points or Ghostly Strike if its close to falling off.  
      Once Vanish/Curse of the Dreadblades/Adrenaline Rush are off CD I do:
      Potion of Prolonged Power -> Curse of the Dreadblades -> Adrenaline Rush -> Ghostly Strike -> SnD -> Saber Slash -> Run Through -> Vanish -> Ambush -> Run Through and then Saber Slash/Run Through until Curse of the Dreadblades is finished. 
      Does this seem correct?
