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

      Hello DKs. (I dunno why it does this annoying thing with the background)
      I have been playing around with different WeakAuras for a few weeks now and i finally found something that works really well for me personally in PvP.
      Both BGs and arena.

      I have a small screen to work with, so i would try to fit as much info in as i could, on as little space as possible, without having any info there that i didnt need.

      I also found out... With all the pressure and fast thinking happening in pvp, you dont have time to look all over your screen to see important CDs or hp points or whatever.
      So again, i've found a way to track everything i need to know, without moving my eyes to the edges of the screen.

      I am by no means any expert on WA and my designs are pretty basic, for some they might look abit cluttered, but everything that i link here, is quite easy to change.
      Deletes single groups u dont want, or change colours/sounds anyway u like it.

      I really hope you people enjoy what i have made and i hope some of you can use it for yourself.
      It's the first time i ever do post stuff like this... Now, i'll explain what the different auras do:
      ---------------------------------

      https://pastebin.com/h0sVPDgC
      Asphyxiate stun:
      Pretty basic. It will show a stun icon, with a small timer underneath.
      If you dont like the timer, u can delete the group and u can even change the texture to a progress texture, then the bar would deplete as the stun timer went on.
      I do prefer the timer underneath cause of diminishing returns, it often doesnt stun the full 5 sec.

      https://pastebin.com/ZqX24uCV
      CC and Disruption cooldowns:
      Mind freeze (interrupt) and Death grip on the same height
      Asphyxiate and Gnaw (ghoul stun) on the same height.
      These icon will only if the given ability is on cooldown. It will not if it is ready
      Often times there are so many icons on your screen counting down, so i made this to quickly find out what CC is ready.

      https://pastebin.com/Z1tQtqXY
      Apocalypse - Dark Transformation - Soul Reaper cooldowns:
      I put these in the same group, cause they are what i use basically everytime they are of CD (if im in range of my target ofc)
      They contribute to the very important sustained damage of unholy and it was important for me to track them close to each other.
      They will both bounce in and yellow text will appear when an ability is ready - Something i made so i never miss or forget one of these as i am focusing my target.

      https://pastebin.com/kvehS4qi
      Festering wound tracker:
      Obviously one of the most important things to keep track of for unholy.
      I've tried with different icons and progress bars, but fact is that, even though they look prettier and more neath, they aren't as practical.
      So i made a simple, yet very effective tracker for it.

      A flashing purple wheel appears if you are in combat and no wound is active on your target.
      It bounces and turns red if there are 1-2 stack active, cause this is where you should apply more debuff before detonating.
      Standard purple colour will appear with 3-5 stacks, cause with this amount you are free to detonate your wounds and not having to reapply new ones or worring about there being to many. (Because you are obvioulsy free to Festering strike if you are at like 3 stacks)
      It will flash purple/white when there are 6-8 stacks, cause here you need to detanote and not reapply anymore festering strikes, atleast until it reaches below six.

      https://pastebin.com/deeYe8T2
      Offensive burst/go for kill/swap target cooldowns:
      I didnt put "Blighted rune weapon" in with the other sustain damage CDs because i feel even though it is good for sustained damage, it does not need to be used of cd.
      It works very well if you want to surprise swap to a different targets.
      There are stacks for BRW and timer for your gargoyle - Again, a very simple but very effective design, that tells you everything you need to know. These will also disappear when they are ready.

      https://pastebin.com/6NsWPd0R
      Scourge of worlds proc:
      Very, very important debuff to track. Changes your priority alot of times in your rotation for the next 5-6 secs.
      Even though it could work with the normal icon and the design is cool, it is again. Not practical for pvp, cause u need ONLY to see useful info.
      So i made it very simple with a standard timer, so u never miss the debuff and it doesnt clutter your screen.

      https://pastebin.com/BUkZmUMp
      Sudden doom proc:
      These can ofcourse be changed to any texture you might like better.
      1 bar appears with 1 proc - 2 bars appears with 2 procs.
      Again for practical use - Minimize the amount of numbers and bars on your screen with this.

      https://pastebin.com/WBTRpnEZ
      Virulent plague:
      I sometimes forget to reapply this in stressed situations. I made this aura to make sure it never happens.
      A white flashing icon shows when it is not active, a simple sound plays when it runs out and a white bar shows the progress.

      Really hope you guys enjoy it and will give me some feedback!
      I love playing around with WeakAuras and just as i have had alot of help from others designs i really hope someone can use mine.

      So I just got my Rogue to 110 on Monday and plan on raiding soon. But  I am a bit unhappy about Vigor not being an option. Every guide I found put the other two talents above it. I really like playing with Vigor, this might just be because my gear is still kinda bad and messed up(850ish), but it feels a lot smoother with Vigor.
      So I wanted to know why excactly the other two are better and by how much. 
      Edit: Sub
