Assassin Rogue Trinket Question

Recommended Posts

 

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.

      Okay so between Nelf and Human rogue my questions are this
      Doesn't the weapon skill see a diminishing return?
      Is the dps difference actually there?
      Also shadowmeld vs perception: I don't understand why shadowmeld isn't considered to be the better choice?
      Reasoning being that a nelf should get the jump on another rogue first regardless, because of the better stealth..that is a passive. Also wouldn't the shadowmeld be better in a raid setting for sap?
      I understand that perception is active for 20 seconds but it has a cool down, and is also on the same faction?

      In the Deckard Cain Meta Tier List made by @Oxygen, @MagikMurlok asked if someone could compile a list of Heroes that have strong self-sustain that can be viable in matches that features no Supports. I decided to help.
      I ended making a list of all non-Healer Heroes that have any form of self-healing. Took me around 6 hours to compile every single nook and cranny (with all the revisions and edits), so here it is! I hope this help. Any feedback is welcome.
      I've also included a suggested build for each character to use in the event that there is no Healer in the team, aimed at maximizing survivability.
      Special thanks to @ExorionAether for the help with talents and Heroes I missed, forgot or did not include originally for other reasons.
      Heroes are organized in alphabetical order. Press the "reveal hidden content" button to reveal the lists.

      TOP 10 BEST PUBSTOMPERS WITHOUT HEALER AID
      Fenix: as long his Shield doesn't drop completely, he has one of the most powerful lane presences in the game, essentially having two healthbars. And if losing his Shields he can simply retreat and let them replenish again. Just be careful with hard engages, stuns and damage-over-time (as each tick will put Shield Capacitor on cooldown). Malthael: ridiculous sustain that allows him to 1v2 or even 1v3 under the right circumstances. Make sure to hit as many opponents as possible with Basic Attacks to maximize his sustain. Dehaka: incredibly sticky and slippery, with a global presence that allows him to engage and disengage at ease. His trait combined with Adaptation makes him really hard to kill. Blaze: powerful lane presence and one of the best self-sustains in the entire game. Diablo: his recent rework made him absurdly resilient, with a self-sustain that can surpass Blaze's under the right circumstances. Sonya: still one of the strongest solo laners in the game, with reliable self-sustain, great damage overall, and strong engage potential. The Butcher: with a high risk, high reward gameplay style, he can become unkillable, but requires a really strong frontline to keep him well protected, as well at least one backline Hero that can harass enemies at long range. Medivh: with a very versatile kit, he can provide damage, mobility, vision, crowd-control and most importantly, damage immunity and healing. ANY team without a Healer greatly benefits from Medivh. Thrall: very strong on really long matches, as his most powerful quest talents require a lot of farming. At the endgame he deal eye-watering damage while healing for huge chunks of health. Illidan: with his passive healing, he is a no-brainer. He can easily harass the backline and disengage, forcing the enemy team to waste cooldowns and allow the allied team to retaliate. THE TOP 5 BEST SELF-SUSTAIN TEAM COMBINATIONS
      Stitches, Sonya, Kel'Thuzad, Kael'thas, Medivh. Garrosh, Stitches, The Butcher, Kel'Thuzad, Medivh. ETC, Blaze, Fenix, Kel'Thuzad, Medivh. Johanna, Cassia, Raynor, Fenix, Medivh. Johanna, Blaze, Sgt. Hammer, Li-Ming, Medivh.
