Combat weapons - fast/slow

8 posts in this topic



I have question about weapons in Combat spec.


Currently Im using fast main hand dagger and slow offhand mace.


Dagger is 640 ilevel and Mace is 630 ilevel.




I also have second Mace 630 ilevel.


Is it better to stay with fast/slow with higher ilevel


I should stay slow/slow with lower ilevel ??


What do you think.


Can you also give me small feedback about weapons in Combat spec.

Do slow/fast acts as good as fast/slow or any other combination can be useful ?


For example, is it works same as Subtlety offhand which does not count. You can put higher ilevel weapon for Sub even if its slow and you dont have better dagger.

Well, my recommendation is to run two slow weapons. But, for all we know, the better itemized and better dps weapons could provide a larger damage output. Try running a simulation to see what it says.

its always best to have a slow weapon in MH over a dagger, so thats the 1st change i would make, 2nd you should aim for 2 slow weapons 


id also like to point you in the direction of which is a dps sim for rogues

Whichever one gives you more damage should be the one in your main hand. The weapon damage matters at that point, then you can look at which stats are most beneficial.


My guess is that your Mace should be mh and Dagger should be oh, so you can benefit from the better weapon dps. However, having looked at them, if your second mace is the same as the other one, running both maces is probably better cause you'll get more Haste out of it


As conmysterio said, check on Shadowcraft to see which setup would be more optimal for you


Edit: alternatively you could play Sub with the dagger mh, since it gives great stats for you

Thx guys for answers.


I do have the same second Mace.


However I will check Shadowcraft to calculate sim dps with offhand dagger and without.

Just how accurate is Shadowcraft right now? SimCraft and Icy-veins both tell me differently than Shadowcraft does, and I wanna make sure which is most reliable before I go ahead and itemize.

It's probably the most accurate, cause it will give you up-to-date information with the gear you currently have on.


For example: even though Mastery is best for Assassination, maybe you have too little crit to reliably generate bonus combo points so crit is of more value to you in your current gear. Icy-Veins won't tell you that cause it just gives a basic stat priority, and while SimCraft might tell you the same kind of information, it's much more difficult to make sure that its profile is working properly since you have to code it yourself.

      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:
      Thank you for your consideration

      I was going to submit a bug report in game, but I thought I'd check here to see if this really is a bug, or if I just don't understand how the ability is supposed to work. Here's what I planned to submit:
      outlaw rogue ability: Between the Eyes, is not correctly applying the 4x damage increase on critical strikes per the tooltip listed damage for each combo point, nor is it appropriately applying any of the bonus damage modifiers: prey on the weak and ghostly strike. If using Deeper Strategem talent, it appears to be applying 4x damage based on the 5th combo point tooltip, but again, the modifiers:ghostly strike and prey on the weak are not applying. 
      Per the tooltip, at 6 combo points, I should do 200,695 damage, 5 combo points would be 167,470 damage. While testing this on a training dummy, with Ghostly Strike and Prey on the Weak applied, with Deeper Strategem talented, using 6 combo points, I see a critical strike (100% chance from legendary shoulders) of 682,357. Unless my math is horribly mistaken, that should be a critical strike for 963,336:
      200,695 x 4 x (100% + 10% + 10%)
      This is what I do:
      Stand behind dummy, so nothing is blocked, build up 6 combo points, apply Ghostly strike, either vanish, or leave combat and enter stealth, use Cheap Shot, then use Between the Eyes

      So I'm confused on what to do at this point.. I'm at 30% crit with the shoulders equip and 120% mastery. Should I be stacking mastery now and not worrying about crit since I get 100% off start? I also have the bracers? Also since the burst is for 6 seconds I don't know what I should do for a opener anymore.. Any suggestions?

      Hey all, I apologize if this is common knowledge, but my rogue is one of my alts and I don't know as much about the class as I'd like. I used to play outlaw just fine, but I'm interested in a strong spec that isn't so RNG dependent. I'm a bit confused as to how much mastery is needed to pull off a poison build vs a bleed a build. The talent guide says to go for poisons if you have a mastery-heavy build. What constitutes a lot of mastery? My rogue is wearing ilvl 847 with 27.79% crit, 7.83% haste, 116.2% mastery, 3.6/1.8% versatility. That is based on recommendations from Ask Mr. Robot. I primarily run mythics and I would like recommendations on the best tier 1 and 6 talent suggestions.

      With the huge upcoming nerfs to BtE (crit multiplier removed) and greenskins wrists (400% to 300% damage), i am wondering if the effect will still be worth using in 7.1.5, or whether or not they will become a glorified stat stick. With the slight buff to ghostly strike also, it seems they may become useless. Does anyone have any info / run any sims on the issue. On a side note, with the single target buffs to outlaw is it going to be a competitive spec, and will slice and dice overtake roll the bones to give the spec more consistency (although make it far more boring).
