I'm fixing the 120 Energy, thank you. Regarding the glyphs, I imagine you mean Glyph of Energy, which is not available yet. Same for Improved Slice and Dice, which is a perk you get while leveling to 100.

Anyone know if Shadowcraft is updated/accurate since 6.0.2? I ask because it's suggesting that I switch virtually every gem to either Perfect Piercing Alexandrite or Crafty Vermilion Onyx, neither of which are even mentioned on the gems page of the Assassination guide here on Icy Veins.

 

Considering the prices of these gems right now (~200g each), I don't want to drop that much coin if either this guide or Shadowcraft is... off.

Nevermind, I think I've figured it out. They both have the same specs, but fit different colored socket.

 

Jesus, that's confusing.

Yeah shadowcraft seems broken. It's saying to go all haste and crit gems instead of agility gems; while on the left it stat weighs agility at much higher than those stats. Can anyone clarify?

So, ShadowCraft seems to be having some issue with Haste. I don't know if they've fixed it, but in some cases, it overvalues Haste, which is what may be happening to you guys.

 

Regarding Agility gems, it is important to note that when an Agility gem gives you +10 Agility, gems with a secondary stat on them give you +20 of a stat or +10 of 2 stats. So, In order for Agility gems to be worth it, Agility needs to be twice as desirable as your secondary stats. What happens is that the better your gear, the higher the weight of secondary stats. So, towards the end of the expansion, everyone is almost in full BiS and the value of secondary stats goes up so much that you want to get only that in your gems.

And why is so?

I'm about to go to bed, but I'll try and give you a simple example of why that is, tomorrow.

So, the reason why your secondary stats have more weight when you have more gear has to do with the way they interact together. Let's take the example of Assassination Rogues. The more Haste you have, the faster you attack and the more Energy your regenerate. The faster your attack, the more applications of Poison you get and the more damage you do through your Mastery. The more Energy your regenerate, the more Combo Points you generate and the more extra Combo points you generate through Seal Fate. The more Critical Strike you have, the more extra Combo Points you generate through Seal Fate. More Combo Points means more casts of Envenom, which means more Poison damage through your Mastery.

As you can see, they're all linked together. You increase one, it increases the value of the others in several ways. Agility does not work like this. It simply makes your abilities deal more damage and that's it. It used to give you a bit of Crit, but that is no longer the case.

It might be nifty to add SliceAdmiral (previously SliceCommander) to the Rogue-specific add-ons. Very useful for tracking all buffs/debuffs, energy, combo points etc. Really lightweight and little customization needed.

Thanks, I'll wait until WoD is out to do another pass on add-ons, to make sure they are all properly updated.

Currently Ask Mr Robot Assassination Rogue stat priority is:

Agi>Mastery>crit>Multi>haste

 

I guess im not sure what build to use! I am currently using Icy veins stat priority.

 

the biggest issue I see with current tier gear is in geming red gems 10 crit-10 haste for socket bonus, both builds value hast as lowes stat and current gear has many (12) reg gem slots  wouldn't 10 crit-5 agi  be more beneficial  in those red gem slots? Or even forgo the socket bonus and gem strait crit?

Well, I just don't get how it can be anything else than Crit > Mastery > Haste. I've been running a number of sims and they all agree with that.

Okay so you have me geming

 

Icyviens = Crit > Haste

MrRobot = Mastery > Haste

SCraft = Crit > Haste

 

but your last comment is Crit > Mastery > Haste

 

Bit confused

I don't have the gold just flat out swap back and forth, so ill stay Crit > Haste for now.

Don't worry, the difference between 1 type of gem and the other is like way below 1%.

Now I'm even more confused!!!!  If there is "like way below 1%" difference then why all the discussion and why are you "they" sticking to their guns so to speak?  I often refer to these guides for help and this isn't helping.  Maybe instead of stating "stat priority" why not just say after agility it just doesn't really matter?  Finally, I'm not complaining just confused and I appreciate all the hard work that y'all put into these guides, so thanks a bunch!!!!

If I said that in my guides, I would have a bunch of min-maxer coming to tell me how outrageous it is to say something like this. The truth is simply that even in MoP, you could gem all wrong and still do well in raids, because most of the DPS you do comes from properly using skills. Now, this is even more true, because all secondary stats are so close in value.

I haven't played since the very beginning of cata so I just might be way behind. Do assassination rogues not use slice and dice anymore in their rotation? I used to open with mutilate - snd- rupture at 5 points and then every envenom refreshed the snd. Is that not viable anymore? Thanks.

Slice and Dice is now active by default for Assassination Rogues. You no longer have to apply it.

      It's time to find out what awaits us in Patch 8.2.5 which is now available for playtesting on Public Test Realms.
      Welcome to our Patch 8.2.5 content hub. We will be frequently updating it with links to our latest news coverage.
      Patch 8.2.5 Release Date Speculuation
      Based on the datamined Vulpera mug icon, it's safe to assume that the Allied Race will go live before next Brewfest, which is on or before September 20th.
      Allied Races
      While no Allied Races have been confirmed for Patch 8.2.5, we're speculating that Blizzard is adding Mechagnomes and the Vulpera of Vol'dun this time around.
      The Future of Allied Races Vulpera Coming in Patch 8.2.5 New Goblin and Worgen Models
      Blizzard is adding new models for both races introduced back in Cataclysm. Blizzard confirmed that there will be no Heritage Armor in 8.2.5.
      Goblin and Worgen Models Preview Celebrate 15 Years of Warcraft
      November 2019 marks the 15th anniversary of World of Warcraft, and players who log in during the event period will receive a celebration package in the mail with a Lil' Nefarian pet and other in-game goodies. Throughout the duration of the event, you’ll be able to participate in three unique raids with iconic encounters from past expansions along with an old-school-inspired Alterac Valley battleground. Players who defeat all nine bosses in the raid wings will receive the Obsidian Worldbreaker, a Black Dragonflight mount inspired by Deathwing. Players who participate in Alterac Valley will receive a new anniversary event currency which can be exchanged for two new mounts: the Stormpike Battle Charger (Alliance) and the Frostwolf Snarler (Horde).
      Obsidian Worldbreaker Mount Preview Frostwolf Snarler & Stormpike Battle Charger Mount Preview 15th Anniversary Alabaster Mounts Honeyback Harvester (Bee Mount)
      Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on the long-awaited Bee mount (Honeyback Harvester)
      Where Is My Bee Mount? New Timewalking Raid: Firelands
      When Cataclysm Timewalking is active, max-level players will be able to form raid groups and enter the Sulfuron Spire once more. As with previous Timewalking raids (Black Temple, Ulduar), your gear and power are scaled to the challenge, and all the bosses and rewards you expect lie in wait.
      Party Sync
      Blizzard is experimenting with a new mode in the forthcoming patch that makes it easier for players in a party to do quests and play together: Party Sync. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state, including phases. By mousing over a quest in your tracker, you can see who is on the quest, what their progress is, and who’s ready to turn in the quest. There’s something else we’re going to try out on the PTR, a “replay” quest feature. This will allow players who have already completed certain quests to replay those quests with their friends for rewards that are appropriate to their current level, regardless of the original level of the quest.
      They're also relaxing level restrictions on queueing for instanced content with your friends. This allows lower-level players to queue for content in their level range, and higher-level players can choose to join them by having their level scaled down while they’re in the instance. This feature will be available for dungeon instances for PTR Week 1, with PvP instances being flagged in the following weeks. Please note that unlike Timewalking, when your level is scaled down via Party Sync you will temporarily lose access to abilities and powers (such as Azerite traits) with requirements that exceed your reduced level.
      Recruit A Friend Returns
      Coming in 8.2.5 is a revamped Recruit A Friend system. If you have active game time you’ll be able to recruit your friends—both brand-new to the game and returning champions—to share in your adventures. To do so, you’ll be able to use a new URL generation tool to create a custom link to give to your friends. By following the link, you’ll be connected to each other and will be able to see if they have purchased game time, resulting in rewards for you! For each month your recruits have active game time, you’ll earn a new reward such as unique pets, mounts, game time and more. These rewards unlock per month and scale with how many months your recruits have subscribed for. And, of course, with Party Sync you’ll be able to journey with your friends on any of your characters. We’ll have more information about Recruit A Friend rewards before 8.2.5 release.
      Recruit-a-Friend Mount Preview: Explorer's Dunetrekker The Story Continues...
      We datamined new models for Wrathion, Valeera, Zekhan, and Calia Menethil in 8.2.5 Build 31337. Wrathion is part of the story in the new patch and he's involved in a Karazhan Scenario and we also found a new Hearthstone Tavern in the game.

      Sadly, there will be no Heritage Armor added in Patch 8.2.5.
      Both Goblins and the Worgen received new models in Patch 8.2.5, but Blizzard today confirmed that they were no plans for any Heritage Armor questlines, even though the latest MMORPG.com interview claims the direct opposite.
      Blizzard (Source)
      So according to the interview with Morgan Day and Shani Edwards on MMORPG dot com, it was mentioned that the heritage armor sets for worgen and goblins will be landing at the same time as the model upgrades.
      I lack the posting count to have permission to include links in my posts but the article on there is titled “New World of Warcraft 8.2 Info: Tyrande, Sylvanas, Customization, OH MY!” for those who want to go have a look themselves. Here’s a quote, though:
      "Goblin and Worgen fans will be pleased to hear that the long-awaited model update for each will be arriving in a future content patch.
      “Shortly after Rise of Azshara, you’ll see that,” Morgan explained. “These are the two races that haven’t been updated. They’ll have new heritage armor with that as well.”
      Is this still going to be the case? I ask because there was no mention of this in the development notes for the 8.2.5 PTR. Can we get some blue confirmation as to whether or not those plans have changed?
      Hello.
      I can confirm that 8.2.5 does not include any new Heritage Armor questlines
