Subtlety Rogue Opening

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

a few questions. Usually I begin like this: (spell_shadow_possession.jpgPremeditation)ability_rogue_garrote.jpgGarroteability_rogue_slicedice.jpgSlice and DiceAmbushspell_shadow_lifedrain.jpgHemorrhageability_rogue_rupture.jpgRupture with 5CP thx toability_rogue_honoramongstthieves.jpgHonor Among Thieves and so on. In the guide

 

 

  1. Cast wow_icon_ability_rogue_garrote.jpg Garrote.
  2. Cast wow_icon_ability_rogue_ambush.jpg Ambush as many times as possible (usually twice).
    • It should be possible thanks to Energetic Recovery and wow_icon_rogue_subterfuge.jpg Subterfuge.
    • Extra Combo Points will be stored, thanks to wow_icon_ability_rogue_slaughterfromthes Anticipation.

I'll try it next time in raid. But I cannot cast twice Ambush on the doll, with or without Energetic Recovery. How is my opening anyway? Should I cast Slice and Dice later?

 

(And

 

 

do not refresh wow_icon_ability_rogue_rupture.jpg Rupture until wow_icon_ability_rogue_garrote.jpg Garrote fades

Why is it so? I thought wow_icon_ability_rogue_rupture.jpg Rupture > wow_icon_ability_rogue_eviscerate.jpg Eviscerate, independent of wow_icon_ability_rogue_sanguinaryvein.jp Sanguinary Vein)

 

And the CDs. From another guide (http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/forum/topic/5847957076 it's german) the priority is ability_vanish.jpgVanishability_rogue_preparation.jpgPreparationability_rogue_shadowdance.jpgShadow Danceinv_knife_1h_grimbatolraid_d_03.jpgShadow Blades. But in the guide here 

 

 

Finally, one last trick can be used when wow_icon_ability_vanish.jpg Vanish and wow_icon_ability_rogue_shadowdance.jpg Shadow Dance come off cooldown at the same time. Use wow_icon_ability_rogue_shadowdance.jpg Shadow Dance first.

Vanish has a longer Cooldown, so I thought it's better to cast Vanish first. Is it better to cast Shadow Dance first? And why? And when to cast Shadow Blades (at the beginning)? With T15 4P Bonus, I cast Shadow Blades with Vanish and inv_glyph_majorrogue.jpgGlyph of Vanish or with Shadow Dance. Now I don't have T15 4P Bonus. The guide from the german forum suggests to cast Shadow Blades after Vanish/Perperation+Vanish/Shadow Dance, that's about 45 seconds after beginning. Is it really good to wait so long?

I figured it out.

 

 

You should always time your wow_icon_ability_rogue_shadowdance.jpg Shadow Dance and wow_icon_ability_vanish.jpg Vanish cooldowns in such a way that you do not have to refresh wow_icon_ability_rogue_slicedice.jpg Slice and Dice or wow_icon_ability_rogue_rupture.jpg Rupture (which does not benefit from wow_icon_ability_rogue_findweakness.jpg Find Weakness) while these cooldowns are active.

Now I have another questen respectively idea. With spell_holy_sealofsacrifice.jpgGlyph of Hemorrhaging Veins we don't have to refresh Rupture and cast more strong Eviscerate during Find Weakness, which means that the Glyph of Hemorrhaging Veins is also a dps-gain on single target situations. Is it right?

 

 

Vanish has a longer Cooldown, so I thought it's better to cast Vanish first.

 

Hmm it may be an error in reasoning on my part...

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      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?

      Howdy,
      I was going to submit a bug report in game, but I thought I'd check here to see if this really is a bug, or if I just don't understand how the ability is supposed to work. Here's what I planned to submit:
      outlaw rogue ability: Between the Eyes, is not correctly applying the 4x damage increase on critical strikes per the tooltip listed damage for each combo point, nor is it appropriately applying any of the bonus damage modifiers: prey on the weak and ghostly strike. If using Deeper Strategem talent, it appears to be applying 4x damage based on the 5th combo point tooltip, but again, the modifiers:ghostly strike and prey on the weak are not applying. 
      Per the tooltip, at 6 combo points, I should do 200,695 damage, 5 combo points would be 167,470 damage. While testing this on a training dummy, with Ghostly Strike and Prey on the Weak applied, with Deeper Strategem talented, using 6 combo points, I see a critical strike (100% chance from legendary shoulders) of 682,357. Unless my math is horribly mistaken, that should be a critical strike for 963,336:
      200,695 x 4 x (100% + 10% + 10%)
       
      This is what I do:
      Stand behind dummy, so nothing is blocked, build up 6 combo points, apply Ghostly strike, either vanish, or leave combat and enter stealth, use Cheap Shot, then use Between the Eyes

      So I'm confused on what to do at this point.. I'm at 30% crit with the shoulders equip and 120% mastery. Should I be stacking mastery now and not worrying about crit since I get 100% off start? I also have the bracers? Also since the burst is for 6 seconds I don't know what I should do for a opener anymore.. Any suggestions?
