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.

      1. can i do comparable ( to subtlety ) damage as assasination rogue? what is difference in %?
      2. shadowcraft shows me that subterfuge is 25k dps more than nightstalker, is it real?
      3. simcraft shows me, that my dps now as assasination is 25-30k less than subtlety ( 55 and 59 artifact level ), will it be the same gap when i get 59 assa artifact, or subtlety damage is always higher?

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
      So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much. 
      Edit: Sub
