Outlaw Rogue DPS issues

Hey guys I have been having some dps issues on my outlaw rogue. I have 906 ilvl but I am usually one of the lowest dps. I have only been focusing on the ilvl of the gear and not really the stats so I am thinking that that is the problem. Any tips would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Generally outlaw is the weakest spec right now even though it was buffed last patch its still awkward in raids(but its even worse in pvp LOL) due to redicilous fluctuations in damage output.

But nevertheless,first thing you need to do is to go and thoroughly read Furty's guide.Its very good.Secondly,you need to learn how to use simcraft and estimate your current stat weights as well as your different gear compositions in order to optimize your dps.And finaly,use the best legendaries in slot (they are listed in the guide mentioned above) cuz they really matter these days.

These are the staple steps that came to my mind that every raider should do.Also generally speaking until you learn more try to prioritize Versatility and Haste over Crit and Mastery since they are quite superior for outlaw especially on the items like rings and necks which dont have agility on them(For example 890 ring with haste+vers might be better than 915 ring with mastery+crit)

Hey there. I play Outlaw a lot - mostly mythic dungeons but also raids where it performs acceptably (HC ToS.) ST damage is up there and it takes much less of you to pull it off than Sub and Sin - especially on encounters with a lot of mechanics to keep and eye on. This makes Outlaw a nice spec you want to focus on the encounters and mechanics instead of 'perfect' rotations.


At the moment as Outlaw I do the most consistent single target damage with following build:

* Talents: Quick Draw, Deeper Stratagem, Alacrity + Slice n' Dice

* Tier: T19 2p and T20 4p (Mine: T19 915 & 905 - T20 900 + 3x 915)

* Trinkets: NBF & CoF (Mine: NBF 895 - COF 890)

* Legendaries: Insignia and Greenskin Cuffs


This only works assuming you have a high WF of T19 (900+) and high NBF (900~ ish) as well. Furthermore you can up the damage of this spec if you have the CoS ring paired with Insignia (10% extra Autoattack dmg). I don't have this ring unfortunately...


Here's my current statweight with this build: 

Agility=24.57. Versatility=23.18 CritRating=22.57, HasteRating=19.39, MasteryRating=18.41


Hope you find it useful :)

      The Bloodborn is currently a Heroic raiding guild that is trying to break into Mythic progression raiding. We have a talented core and are very enthusiastic about raiding, but unfortunately we lack the numbers to attempt Mythic. We are a mostly adult guild ages 25-35 and would prefer like-aged people.
      A little history: The Bloodborn is a guild that has been around since The Burning Crusade. We started on the Lethon server and transferred to Illidan at the start of Warlords in an effort to find more players on a high-pop server.
      We have earned AoTC during every raid tier this expansion (and before!). We are a close-knit guild who help boost keys weekly, PvP, achievement hunt, and much more.
      We are willing to help people gear up for their tier. Voice is optional, but we use Discord and will require you at a minimum to listen.
      Guild Needs:
      DPS (Death Knight, Shadow Priest) are in high demand.
      Accepting applications from all specs/classes.
      Raiding Times:
      Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday 9:30pm-12:30am(pst) 11:30pm-2:30am(server-time)

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      So I’ve read the Icy Veins Sin Rogue PvP Guide that suggests Cheapshot > Garrote > Mutilate > Rupture as an opener. It works very well, but I’m wondering if I should use another opening rotation with MotMA (gives 100% crit chance for 5 sec after exiting stealth mode)? I know that legendaries aren’t active in arenas, but I was thinking in wpvp/duels. 
      Cheers :)
