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

      1. can i do comparable ( to subtlety ) damage as assasination rogue? what is difference in %?
      2. shadowcraft shows me that subterfuge is 25k dps more than nightstalker, is it real?
      3. simcraft shows me, that my dps now as assasination is 25-30k less than subtlety ( 55 and 59 artifact level ), will it be the same gap when i get 59 assa artifact, or subtlety damage is always higher?

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
      So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much.
