Assasination relic question

5 posts in this topic

Hello all rogues in Azeroth. I'm a 915 assasination rogue. Can pull 1,5m burst dps and substain around 700-900k dps during longer fights. 
Since my question is about relics I don't feel the use of armory and logs to answer my question. 

My weapon is ilvl 920 and I feel it's falling behind with my raidpartners and I'm thinking of when to switch out what I'm using. Since I'm using two master assasin + boots my vendetta is on around 45 sec CD
I have: 
shadow: 905 toxic blade relic.
Iron: 885 master assasin relic.
Blood: 900 master assasin relic.

Should I focus more on ilvl with for example Iron-relic? 

See you around and remember. If someone scary comes. Vanish, shadowstep, Mutilate

Hey there.

Last time I checked 2/3 MA relics with CoF trinket and Leg Boots were still doing quite fine. Weapon dmg is not that important for Sin rogues so the higher ilvl relics don't do that much different unless it's of course by a bigger margin.

If you want to change your relics though and go for some higher ilvls you should also swap your Leg Boots (assuming you use CoF). Currently I sit with 1 MA relic + CoF making Vendetta line up with every second KB. This gives me the opportunity to use Leg Wrist instead of Boots - giving me a significantly burst in the execution phase (super powerful on FA for instance). Also note that in progression type of raids bosses usually die way slower giving the Leg Wrist a pretty good advantage.

Thank you for the advise. 
Since I have all assasin-locked legendarys + neutral legendarys except Sephuz and the empty crown I usually use 4p + wrist and boots. 
I have a CoF 900 with trinket. 

When doing WQ and lower keys(where I expect the mobs to die pretty fast) i usually use 4p + shoulders and boots. 

The difference is 15 ilvl for the relic without any warforged or titanforged. 

I try to use vendetta + KB every time. Sometimes I have to wait for KB, sometimes for Vendetta. Usually not more then 5 seconds. 

My raidteam are progessing in heroic ToS. We are having a break and sometimes do normal ToS. Next week I hope we start working on progession heroic again. 

If it's ok with you I will ask to get logs for today and I link my armory later(3-4 hours). I know I need to work on keeping up rupture, but sometimes it's hard when you are 10 feet away during different phases.

Unless it's an overwhelming improvement in weapon ilvl or trait (i.e getting rid of a Cloak trait for a Vendetta) relics should be the absolute last thing you change, since there's no going back.  Creative stat balancing can help out to an extent - if you only have 1 Vendetta relic, for example, you could try stacking more crit to offset the dps loss somewhat.

I couldn't get logs today, and also we did a fun run through heroic nighthold. 

Here is my armory if someone would be interested to see what I can improve. Mastery should be higher, I know that.

If the gear doesn't change until you look at it(it shouldn't), this is my "burst AoE focus on ST gear" for fights with no AoE I change umbral moonglaive for Infernal cinders 915.

      Hopefully an easy question. I have always just gone for the top trait relics but now i have a non top relic and need to understand the comparison chart. Does the Weapon iLvl column # the number that should be added to the +50 Item levels for example? is a say +51 item level with Jaws of Thunder the same value (60) as  a +60 item level Furious swipes  or do i add the Trait bonus so to speak to the ~900 item level? Thanks you for the clarification.

      Hey guys and gals. I'm fairly new to assassination, my rogue was originally a SUB rogue, for legion I changed to Outlaw, and finally Assassination. I've been raiding now with it for a good couple of months with my current spec, I've tried to follow the icy veins guide as close as I can, when it comes to BIS, rotation, etc.  I'm struggling to get the numbers, I'm supposed to be getting according to my gear level. 
      http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/fizzcrank/Atreyiu/simple
      I am aware I don't have all my BIS, but I'm working on it. My guild is currently doing NH Heroic, and so far we are 6 bosses in. And most of the pieces I need are in the later bosses, so far we haven't been able to progress that far.
      according to warcraftlogs, my dps is in the very low end of the spectrum. and I agree, there is another rogue in my guild that puts out almost 35% more dps than I do, and he is at 898 right now.
      these are my logs
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/22393791/latest/
       
      these are the logs for my guildee, that whoops my butt in dps every time (he is a really cool dude and has tried to help me, but because of his and my work schedule I only get to talk to him during raid times)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/17154275/latest/
       
      Also my rotation for single target goes as follows: Garrote-mutilate-rupture(5point)--mutilate-mutilate(5point)-envenom-kingsbane--vendetta--garrote(keeping it up)-mutilate-mutilate-vanish-rupture---rinse and repeat.
       
      So if you guys have any advice, on areas I could improve. I would greatly appreciate it.

      Ok so let me start out by saying my weapon is lvl 885(fire artifact) and has the following relics equipped: 

      Fires of Heaven 855 +10% Pyro (Fire)
      Raven's sight 865 +20% FS (Arcane)
      Fires of Heaven 845 +10% Pyro (Fire)
      (I know it doesnt add 10% each)

      i have in my bag i have:

      Seawitch's Foci 840 +12% Ignite (Arcane)
      Sizziling Fang 875 +12% Ignite (Fire)
      Soulforge Ember 835+12% Ignite (Fire)
      Molten Giant's Eye 860+3% Fire crit (Fire)
      Fires of Heaven 840 +10% Pyro (Fire)

      Ok last time i took out an Ignite relic i lost 40-50k dps. I put in the 855 Fires of Heaven relic and just did not stack up even though it was a 10ilvl increase. So my question is should i go tripple Ignite? or maybe double ignite with the crit relic too. I care a lot more about mythic + dps more than raid so keep that in mind. it doesnt seem like the pyro one is very good compared to ignite. Also if anyone can offer an explanation as to why i lost so much dps by switching in the supposedly best relic (pyro) that would be great. My best guess is that i was on some kind of soft cap with mastery and that it did a lot more dps but idk

      I think the best two options are running three ignite for insane cleave damage in mythic plus or, Sizziling Flame, Molten Giant, and Seawitch.

      Here on Icy Vein's under the Arms Warrior DPS guide here is the recommended relic choice. I was under the impression that [Exploit the Weakness] was our top priority even if it meant 20-25iLvl difference. Since it would increase the proc chance by a factor of x2 with all three relics increasing Tacticians...
      Why does this guide on Icy Veins say otherwise? Is it because the information is out of date and hasn't been updated?

      Unfortunately this is not someting I can just run a Sim on because I don't currently have any [Exploit the Weakness] relics.

      Which is better an 865 relic with Firestorm: http://www.wowdb.com/spells/191740-firestorm#related:improved-by or an 865 relic with Earthen Attunement: http://www.wowdb.com/spells/191598-earthen-attunement?artifactRank=1
