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.

      With the introduction of mount equipment in Rise of Azshara, Water Striders will lose their innate passive ability to walk on water. What exactly does that entail?
      If you haven't been following the official Patch 8.2 content preview, each mount is getting an equipment slot in Patch 8.2 which grants the mount perks, such as water walking, parachute, and daze prevention.
      The item which grants water walking is called Inflatable Mount Shoes. As a result, all Water Striders will lose their innate ability to walk on water, but Blizzard will be mailing Inflatable Mount Shoes to every player who unlocked the mount through the Anglers reputation. Additional Inflatable Mount Shoes should be affordable on the Anglers vendor for 40 Gold right now.
      Death Knights (Path of Frost) and Shamans (Water Walking) both have water walking, so they don't need the item at all.
      They're comparing Water Striders to Sky Golem's innate herbing passive, and some ask the Water Strider's ability to be designed in a way to ignore mount equipment, but the Engineering mount won't be losing its passive, because it's apparently not as powerful as water walking itself.
      TL;DR
      Water Striders will no longer be able to walk on water in Patch 8.2. The water walking ability is transferred to an item which can be applied to mounts of your choice, resulting in more variety. If you earned a Water Strider and farmed the Anglers rep, the item will be mailed to you at no charge. Additional items can be purchased from the Anglers vendor. What's your opinion about Water Striders in general? Do you think they should keep their ability to walk on water, or do you not mind the nerf at all? Let us know in the comments!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Yeah, but now you’d have the ability to use a mount, besides the Water Strider. I dunno about you, but being stuck using only one mount forever sounds absolutely boring as hell
      That’s one of the goals here. There are a lot of mounts out there and it’s strange to have a “wrong choice” when out running around. You’ll easily be able to keep the ability just as you have it now but there will be other options that you (the player) can make if you prefer something else. How you about the world, where you often go, and how fast you like to escape from things could all contribute to what works best for your playstyle.
      There are a few extra notes so like Death Knights can do waterwalking via Path of Frost (and Shaman with Water Walking). That should help empower these classes a bit and help make them feel a bit more unique.
      I’m not sure what the price of the waterwalking shoes will be offhand, but it should be pretty affordable on the Anglers vendor. We’ll have the PTR up soon™ and look forward to hearing your feedback on that.
      Would it be possible to have the water strider be like the sky golem. It can have innate water walking but is not effected by mount equipment?
      I will check but my personal opinion from my play experience is that the water strider ability is just much stronger than the sky golem herbing. We nerfed the water strider once and if we leave it with the ability there then it’s more in the line of getting everything and less of making a choice for what you want. We want there to be a choice based on your play and interests. If herbing on the run provides too strong of a benefit then there might need to be changes there but currently I don’t think that’s the case.
      Brave soul.
      I commend you for stepping into this thread on the Monday evening preceding the drop of 8.2 on the PTR. However, this price you speak of not knowing offhand is what will be a determining factor in many players decisions. Personally, I’ve stuck by/accepted/dealt with the changes made over the years to keep the gameplay from just becoming a static habit. But having spent my money and time acquiring the rep required to gain the reward, only to have it removed and then require it to be re-purchased…no. That’s the line. I’m sorry to sound like I’m giving an ultimatum because it’s not. It’s a decision made based on honor, or the lack thereof.
      EDIT - and to be perfectly fair, yes, I agree and have so for many years that Blizzard has the right to change content at their discretion at any time. But this is one of those times I won’t be agreeing with it.
      Just something I’d like to get your perspective on, if the character who earned the Anglers reputation along with the mount gets the water walking item for free, what would a fair price be for the alts to get it? If that character who earned the reputation and mount has the option to water walk (but might choose something else), do you feel that alts should have every single thing that the other characters have?
      Also, just out of curiosity, how often would you estimate that you have you used the water strider mount in the 6+ years it’s been available?
      Thanks folks for chatting!

      Recently, Blizzard's CDN (Content Delivery Network) has been updated with a new Classic Beta build and according to Blizzard, they've begun a phase of internal employee alpha testing and have no announcements to make right now regarding Beta.
      The only thing we know about WoW Classic right now is that Blizzard employees have begun internal testing. The game, scheduled for release later this summer, is currently still in Alpha and it does not look like they're planning to announce Beta testing any time soon, leaving the company with less than 4 months of testing prior to release, granted that Classic won't be delayed.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey folks! I’ve got a small update here to help quell some of the rumors and let you know where we are at for WoW Classic. We recently began a phase of internal employee alpha testing. The new build data that many of you have been discussing over the last few days is simply part of this process. Phases like this allow us to test out the game content along with other functionality that will be used in the live game, like logging in through the Blizzard Battle.net App.
      Aside from that, we don’t have any announcements to make at this time. I know all of you are very excited about this game and we thank you for your patience as we continue to develop it. More information will be coming soon!

      The maximum item level of world quest and emissary rewards is going up next week with opening of Mythic Crucible on April 23.
      World quests will now reward gear up to item level 370, emissaries up to item level 395, and Azerite Armor from emissaries will be increased to item level 400. Rewards from the "Against Overwhelming Odds" (PvP world quest) will be up to item level 395. The change should be live after the weekly scheduled maintenance in your region.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Raid Finder (and Mythic) difficulty for Crucible of Storms will open next week, April 23. Similar to Battle of Dazar’alor, you will need an average item level of 350 to queue for it. To help ensure players get raid ready, we are increasing the maximum item level for certain World Quests rewards. This will include the following:
      World Quest rewards will go up to ilvl 370 (from 360) Emissary equipment will go up to ilvl 395 (from 385) Emissary Azerite Armor will go up to ilvl 400 (from 385) Against Overwhelming Odds (when available) will go up to ilvl 395 (from 385) Once the update is live it will affect active rewards like the Emissaries, so you may want to plan for when you will turn those in.

      It seems Alliance players will finally be able to get their hands on Bee mounts come Rise of Azshara.
      Patch 8.2 datamining revealed four new factions that may be related to Bee mounts datamined back in Patch 8.0.1. The new entries include:
      Hivemother Drone Queen Honey Bee While we don't have any additional details to share at this time, it seems the Alliance is one step closer to receiving their Bee mounts, teased back at last year's BlizzCon. Maybe it's time to start looking for new secrets in Stormsong Valley when Patch 8.2 goes live.
