Spec Choices.

3 posts in this topic

What's up guys! (And Gals')

 

I wanted to get a general feedback on how the specs are doing and what people are running.

 

I leveled my rogue as Assassination and had a good amount of fun with it but decided to switch because of dagger drops in Highmaul being quite low and my luck being shiet.

 

I switched to Sub and did quite well and than also wanted to try out combat. Currently on the Sims Sub is the highest atm, But I usually don't bother seeing how sims are doing because they are basically useless in my eyes. But I like to get a good idea on where the basis of the spec is. 

 

So I want to hear how other specs are doing. Currently with Combat I'm running around 20-22k On single target. Obv cleave and AoE is much better and higher with combat. Sub I was pushing around 20-26k single target with AoE going decently well as well with the new way FoK works. I haven't tried Assassination yet in a raid but before I switched gems and chants for it. I wanted to hear if anyone has been playing assassination for Highmaul progression and how the dmg is?

 

My armory is : http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/anvilmar/Realsneaky/simple

 

And some recent logs are: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/Vat34THxFch8Z6dM/

 

In hopes of maybe some feedback on how I'm doing and what I could be improving since I am new to rogue come this xpac. (at least maining one). 

 

Sorry I know this post had a lot in it. But I wanted to cover all the bases, Thanks!

According to this, which analyzes raid data from the first week Highmaul was open, all three Rogue specs are raid viable right now. Each spec has certain fights in Highmaul that it's best at. If you just count the number of bosses that each spec does best at, Subtlety and Combat are tied with 3 bosses, with Assassination behind at only one boss (so if you're going to dual-spec and switch specs between bosses, Combat/Sub is probably the way to go right now), but if you average out the damage done by each spec across all seven Highmaul bosses, they're all within about 1% of each other overall, so if you want to just stick with a single spec, it doesn't really matter which one of the three you choose.

Pretty much this. 

 

Whichever spec you have the most fun as will be better for you in the long run, cause you'll be more eager to improve. That said, I think that Sub currently has the best tools to perform well on the most fights, but Combat has more chances for weapons in Highmaul

      I know shamans are kinda messed up right now, what else is new.
      But I'm up to 900 and my already underwhelming DPS has seen no significant increase. I'm pretty sure it's tied to my low haste rating, but I'd like to make sure and see if it's just that or something else I can work to change.

      I'll Sim around 760k, This week I got 630k on Krosus, going up to 900k on Skorp and Tich.
      I feel like this is all far too low, one of our top dps is a warlock at i897 and often easily goes 900k and up just on single target.
      I could really use some help figuring out what I've done wrong and what I could improve.

      My usual priority rotation works as follows:
      >Maintain Landslide/Flametongue/Hailstorm
      >Doom winds when off CD and Stormbringer proc'd.
      >Stormstrike when proc'd
      >LavaLash when proc'd
      >Stormstrike when off CD
      >Lavalash when 90+ Maelstrom
      >Rockbiter when -90 Maelstrom
      Feral Spirit-Crash Lightning combo and Doom Winds I'll sometimes delay if there's an add/burn phase, and I have a habit of refreshing Flametongue and Hailstorm on CD if I don't have any procs. I'll also occasionally mismanage Maelstrom and need to do 2-3 Rockbiters to get back up to speed.

      My opener consists of: Prolonged Power>Feral Spirit>Rockbiter>Crash Lightning>Flametongue>Frostbrand>Stormstrike

      So I was raiding with a rogue that was doing around 750k~ dps, i'm still learning assassination and i hover around 450-500k because I'm bad. However I noticed he was using deadly for a lot of the fights even though he was specced for agonizing. Should I be switching back and fourth?

      I have an hard question , could be viable a MILL rogue with Lorewalker Cho ?
      we can full his hand , to melt his cards away  while we Shadowstep on Coldlight Oracle ?
      we can also use Vanish as a removal ...if he gets the hand full...
