Assassin Rogue Trinket Question

4 posts in this topic

 

Okay, I'm a little confused here, is this telling me to use Haromms + Ebon and switch to Assurance for Siegecrafter / Garrosh strategies? I've recently acquired two Heroic weapons for Assassination and have been seriously contemplating giving it a go.

 

I have a Ticking Ebon Detonator, Haromm's Talisman, and Assurance of Consequences all at 569 4/4. For daggers, I'll be using either two Norushen's Shortblades, or one Norushen's Shortblade and one Nazgrim's Gutripper (if I can get it this following week).

 

Thanks for the help in advance!

What it's saying is that in a vacuum, Haromm's and TED produce more potential single target DPS over a long time frame. However, given that we do not DPS in a vacuum, AoC provides a lot of practical value. The reduced cooldowns that AoC provides can be very useful for Cloak of Shadows timing and spacing out cooldowns to coincide with critical phases of a fight. Garrosh is a good example of the Cloak of Shadows timing; if you have a high level AoC (which you do), you can have Cloak of Shadows ready for every Whirling Corruption attack. You would not have this timing without AoC.

 

What it will come down to for you is personal testing. Try a boss attempt with and without the AoC trinket, and see how your cooldown timing changes. If you have all of your cooldown whenever you need them without the AoC trinket, you can do without.

Thank you, Krush! I was kind of thinking along those lines. I'd definitely switch to AoC for Garrosh, guess it'd just be about testing it. 

 

Do you know which would be better to switch out for AoC?

I would switch out TeD for AoC and use that with Haromm's. This is also a better trinket setup than double RPPM on all fights, depending on all fights, if you gain another round of cooldowns it is better, else stick to two rppm.

      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

      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?

      Hey all, I apologize if this is common knowledge, but my rogue is one of my alts and I don't know as much about the class as I'd like. I used to play outlaw just fine, but I'm interested in a strong spec that isn't so RNG dependent. I'm a bit confused as to how much mastery is needed to pull off a poison build vs a bleed a build. The talent guide says to go for poisons if you have a mastery-heavy build. What constitutes a lot of mastery? My rogue is wearing ilvl 847 with 27.79% crit, 7.83% haste, 116.2% mastery, 3.6/1.8% versatility. That is based on recommendations from Ask Mr. Robot. I primarily run mythics and I would like recommendations on the best tier 1 and 6 talent suggestions.

      With the huge upcoming nerfs to BtE (crit multiplier removed) and greenskins wrists (400% to 300% damage), i am wondering if the effect will still be worth using in 7.1.5, or whether or not they will become a glorified stat stick. With the slight buff to ghostly strike also, it seems they may become useless. Does anyone have any info / run any sims on the issue. On a side note, with the single target buffs to outlaw is it going to be a competitive spec, and will slice and dice overtake roll the bones to give the spec more consistency (although make it far more boring).
