Combat Rogue 6.2

Recommended Posts

Guest Minoxidil

Really liked the guide. Im still leveling and using a different build, but once i reach lvl 90, im using these tips.

 

The only thing you should focus more is on stats section, since 6.0 will chance a lot on this subject

So you are saying that Crit(aside from Multi) is now the primary stat? What about shadow craft and other theory crafter suggesting that haste is sitll the better option?

This guide was reviewed by Fiery Demise and he said there is no problem with the stat priority. As far as I know, there are issues in ShadowCraft, which result in the tool overvaluing Haste in certain cases.

Rupture tips in the detailed section for combat rogues. Don't know if you missed that.

Shouldn't we now make ability_rogue_kidneyshot.jpgKidney Shot part of the rotation thanks to ability_rogue_bloodsplatter.jpgInternal Bleeding ?

 

That's a good question. The problem is that the bleed doesn't get applied on mobs immune to stuns, so you can't benefit from it against raid bosses. That said, it does a huge amount of damage against mobs that are not immune to stuns. I played around with it a bit this morning and it does like 3 times more damage than Eviscerate, so I'm definitely going to talk to Fiery Demise about it, so we can add a mention of that in the guides.

Now Ask Mr Robot is too showing haste as the better option as well.  I have noticed slight improvement with crit but I haven't ran any definitive tests.

When you have an equal amount of Crit and Haste, Crit is still slightly better than Haste in my testing. When you have more Haste than Crit (which seems to be the norm in T16 gear), Crit definitely pulls ahead.

Just because i'm new to the rogue guide and a little confused. In section 2 on multiple target rotation it says:

 

When fighting 2 or more enemies, turn on wow_icon_ability_warrior_punishingblow.jBlade Flurry and proceed with your single-target rotation on one of the enemies. Maintain the wow_icon_inv_knife_1h_cataclysm_c_05.jpgCrimson Tempest DoT.

When fighting 5 or more enemies, wow_icon_inv_knife_1h_cataclysm_c_05.jpgCrimson Tempest should replace wow_icon_ability_rogue_eviscerate.jpgEviscerate as your primary Finishing Move.

 

I'm confused because with more than 5 enemies wouldn't want to keep crimson tempest as your primary finishing move? And use eviscerate as the primary with 2-4 while only using crimson tempest if the enemies will last long enough to make it a dps increase over eviscerate? I'm just not understanding why eviscerate takes priority over crimson tempest on 5+ enemies.

Did you not notice that combat potency benefits from a slow weapon in your OH??? I think you should look at combat rogues again and not just say, hey slow weapon in the MH

This was a bit confusing, so I am going to reword "2 or more enemies" into "2, 3, or 4 enemies". Sorry about that.

Combat Potency does not benefit from a slow weapon in the Off-Hand slot. Slow weapons do have a higher chance to proc it, but it's only to compensate for the fact that slow weapons attack less often.

I´m a little confused on a subject: How "far" (read horrible) is the stats between haste and critical strike? Can you be "capped" at haste?

It is very close. I just ran a simulation on the Tier 17 Heroic profile in SimC, setting all the secondary stats at a value of 800, and Haste comes out with a weight of 2.79 and Critical Strike with a weight of 2.42.

There is no real Haste cap, except for when you hit the GCD, but we're a long way from it in the expansion.

hi guys. im just wondering the percentages that stats should be capped at or held at to perform the most dps. any help would be greatly appreciated

Hey, I've read all your rogue guides to such high extent! I find Sub the most fun, but I feel like I'm not doing as much damage as I should. Should I consider switching specs? And if so, which spec would be the superior one?

 

I am 633 ilvl and doing around 16k dps.

When did Combat start wanting to use DfA? I can't find any other sites currently recommending it over Venom Rush, especially not since it was hotfixed to not grant multiple combot points.

Hi! While I main a holy priest, my combat rogue has always been my number 1 alt and these guides have always been a great help in learning how to pretend to be good at melee :p

 

I just have a quick question about Crimson Tempest usage on 2-4 targets. Should I always be casting it at 5 combo points, or if it's about to fall off should I reapply the DoT at whatever number of combo points I have (in a similar fashoin to how we've traditionally treated SnD)?

 

Thanks in advance!

When fighting 2, 3, or 4 enemies, turn on wow_icon_ability_warrior_punishingblow.j Blade Flurry and proceed with your single-target rotation on one of the enemies. Maintain the wow_icon_inv_knife_1h_cataclysm_c_05.jpg Crimson Tempest DoT.

 

Here when you mention maintain the Crimson Tempest DoT, is it simply for the sake of the DoT or because the damage over time is worth it? Real question being since a 1 point or 5 point Crimson Tempest doesn't affect the length (both 12 seconds), are we aiming for 5 points or does it matter? I vaguely remember a passive from one of the talent specs giving energy regen for bleeds - is that still a thing?

There is no cap you should currently be concerned about.

Take a look at that to get an idea: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/statistics/6/

Sorry about that. They hotfixed it shortly after Spazzo's review and then I was unavailable for some time to fix the guide. It's fixed now.

what is the rotation with death from above?

I have just removed DfA from the rotation, so do not worry about it anymore.

I'll ask Spazzo for confirmation, but my belief is that you can and therefore should maintain it with 5 Combo Points. With 5 Combo Points, the DoT deals more damage and also grants you a poison buff that lasts longer.

So, for the opener, after you ambush, why would you not immediately vanish and ambush again, then revealing strike, then 5pt SnD?  I have been doing this and it feels right.

Wondering why on the guide @ https://www.icy-veins.com/wow/combat-rogue-pve-dps-gems-enchants-consumables thathas been approved both "FieryDemise" and "Spazzo" are using mulitistrike and not haste as they have approved?

I've just checked Spazzo and he's stacking Haste, not multistrike.

So, for the opener, after you ambush, why would you not immediately vanish and ambush again, then revealing strike, then 5pt SnD?  I have been doing this and it feels right.

That's because you want to spend as few Combo Points as possible before having cast Killing Spree and Adrenaline Rush. This way, you will have more Combo Points available to reduce the cooldown of Killing Spree and Adrenaline Rush (through Ruthlessness).

With Venom Rush being the top pick wouldn't it be better to go with Leeching Poison? Most bosses are immune to Crippling Poison (unless they really changed things since I last checked) so Leeching Poison, while the health gain wouldn't be that much, it would give you the bonus to energy regeneration.

      If you're making use of the XP buff leveling new characters and you're tired of the Warlords of Draenor intro questline, which involves Khadgar, there's a workaround at level 90 to skip it and here's how.
      Note that the Warlords of Draenor intro rewards a fair amount of XP these days, and you are sacrificing it to save time with the skip.
      At level 90, you must head to Khadgar and complete the intro prologue to Draenor. While the intro gives you a fair amount of Experience with the double XP buff, chances are you could have grown tired of completing it over and over on multiple characters.
      We recommend using the skip ideally if you have:
      Unlocked Draenor Pathfinder (flying in Draenor), because you will end up in Gorgrond and it will take you some time to head back to your Garrison to start questing; Inflatable Mount Shoes on a mount for water walking in case you have no flying unlocked, which makes it less painful reaching locations and unlocking your Garrison. At level 90, take the portal from Stormwind/Orgrimmar to Jade Forest and head to the Timeless Isle in Pandaria (see map below for exact location). There, you will find an underwater cave with chairs. Sit on them and click the campfire to teleport to Gorgrond.

      From there, you can head to Iron Docks if you have a flying mount, and the flight master will take you to your Garrison even though they (the flight masters) aren't marked on the map.

      We have some more art-related content, but this time around it's not just fans painting their favorite characters, but actually transforming WoW into a painting - and without using any mod! Now, there's plenty of mods already out there that you can use to change the game's aesthetics, but with Blizzard's recent tightening of EULA enforcement, it could possibly be risky using some of them (although they've been mostly safe to use so far).
      This one requires an Nvdia card and is much, much easier than putting a mod in, you just need the Geforce app and to click a few things, and your game could be looking like this (just click on the image and the video will play):
      As noted by the poster, kathrad_, this also messes with the UI, so you're either going to have to just use it to marvel at the visuals around the world, or be really good with your spec rotation, as you won't really be seeing much of the UI. Also, perhaps don't go raiding or doing high M+ keys, as ground effects and similar probably won't be as noticeable.
      Interestingly, there are plenty of people in the reddit thread that actually didn't note the difference in the look of the game, saying that the above just looks like regular Darnassus! I guess it's been on fire for so long people have a very painterly memory of the once Night Elf capital.
      If you have some great mods that alter the game's look, share em below and let's see just how much WoW can be changed.

      While it's no surprise many game developers and producers spent time playing WoW, hearing that Valve co-founder and internet santa Gabe Newell actually spent time intensively farming gold in it is slightly more surprising. While talking to Edge magazine (issue 344) he mentioned how, while doing research on games as productivity platforms, he decided to farm gold in World of Warcraft to see if it was worth it.
      And he turned out to be pretty good at it, as his efforts started netting him around $20 per hour, which in turn proved to him that the concept was sound and that realization lead to the addition of the Steam Workshop, where Steam users could create their own content for the games they were playing, starting with the now legendary Team Fortress 2 hats, and peaking with the insane prices for certain CS: GO skins.

      This particular skin went for over $60,000, with a signature
      of a pro player, and it's "only" worth $20,000 without it.
      And so, without the monotony of gold farming, we may not have gotten the Steam Workshop, so the next time you're feeling annoyed at having to grind that 5 mil for the Brutosaur, just think of all the things we wouldn't have had if items in WoW were cheaper!
