[Archived] Subtlety Rogue 5.4

Recommended Posts

Guest iCER

agreed with above OPENER comment about premed + snd.

 

Either have shadow dance for opener ambush attack or be behind boss to start.

 

Always start with PREMED (then when ~14sec left (so wait for pull timer)) > SnD (then wait for 100% energy) > AMBUSH > shadow blades > AMBUSH > RUPTURE > Vanish > GARROTE > HEMORRHAGE > EVISCERATE > SHADOW DANCE > AMBUSH > AMBUSH > EVISCERATE >  AMBUSH > SLICE AND DICE > PREMEDITATION > AMBUSH > EVISCERATE,

 

Good for 5.5-6mil dmg unbuffed and 380k~400k dps on Raid dummy at ilv 564

 

Feel free to add it as a /cast sequence marco. Works well on energy pooling, maximising dmg on shadow blades, utilizing  Silent Blades buff and finish moves while keeping rupture and SnD up for entire opener and allowing room to set yourself up for normal rotation.

I think it's a pretty bad opener. It's of course a waste of Shadow Blades to be used at the beginning when Find Weakness is up. You know it ignores 100% of the armor, aight? And guess what your Shadow Blades are doing...

So it's a CD waste and it should be used, when Shadow Dance/Vanish is on CD.

It's something different when we talk about PvP'ing. More finishing-moves may be better there. But I'm not a PvP'er.

#show backstab

/cast [@focus] tricks of the trade

/cast backstab

 

this will cast tricks of the trade on your focus when available while you do your normal rotation.

this will cast tricks of the trade on your focus when available while you do your normal rotation. 

But will stop your rotation dead if your focus is out of range.  Not recommended for a fight like Thok.

Wouldn't it be nice idea to use inv_enchant_voidcrystal.jpgCrystal of Insanity as flask?

Unfortunately, with it's long cooldown, non-persistant nature, and half effectiveness compared to the real thing, it's completely non-viable for progression raiding or challenge modes, or really any situation that you may die in under an hour in.

Engineering is currently the best profession for Subtlety Rogues, as it provides you with wow_icon_trade_engineering.jpg Synapse Springs, which you can line up every minute with wow_icon_ability_rogue_shadowdance.jpg Shadow Dance, for increased benefits. The rest of the time, you should use Synapse Springs on cooldown. For your second profession, any of the passive Agility gain will do.

 

 

Which ones are "passive agility gain"? Only Mixology says it is passive...

Any profession that provides a gain that does not require you to "activate" it during combat is considered passive, like the 2 extra sockets from Blacksmithing, or the Jewelcrafting-specific gems, or the Leatherworking-only enchants, etc.

What would be REALLY cool, is a key-binding guide to efficiently pull off the rotation you're talking about. :D
