17% hit cap for Combat Rogues

8 posts in this topic

Hello. Why no mention of the 17% hit cap for Combat Rogues in your guides?

Hello there,

Combat Rogues only do a small portion of their damage through poisons (as opposed to Assassination Rogues who rely very much on poisons). Therefore, Combat Rogues only need to get to the 8% hit cap where special melee attacks no longer miss. From there on, investing in Expertise Rating (until the cap) and Haste Rating is more important.

oh yikes, ive never really conformed to the rogue builds, and gone my own way, but obviously i can be doing better... i REALLY need to work on expertise then! at lvl 85 with regular gear (379-397) what should my target haste/hit/crit/mastery/expertise look like? my hit is 12.58% unbuffed, but i guess thats too much?? .....see, i took remedial math in college ..... twice.... numbers sooooo arent my thing, im VERY much the girl stereotype on this one, and can NEVER figure out all the stats properly..... i just look for the right numbers, then shoot for them and stabby stab stab stab! .... at least i LOOK good in leather.........

I wouldn't say your hit is too high you don't want to aim for 17% hit, but you want to be over standard hit cap. As for your other stats ensure you get expertise capped as second priority to hit cap. Then focus stats in order of importance agility, haste, mastery, crit is almost worthless.

Shamless plug of my rogue

Your belt is missing gems! Posted Image

Gems and a belt buckle. Nice legendaries btw. I still don't have any legendaries, had to switch from shadow to healing in 4.2 so I didn't get the staff. I'm still trying to get it tho, one bit at a time.

Oh no you caught me! I tend to only play my rogue on raid nights and often you will find me gemming / enchanting / reforging an hour before the next raid night!.

      Hello,
      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 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M 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, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      So I know the title sounds a bit silly, but hear me out. My problem with MfD is, quite simply, that it locks the upper body of your character into the /point animation and I hate how it looks. I hate it hate it hate it. I use MfD, then Run Through, and my rogue does this weird crouching lunge forward with her cutlass pointing up into the sky. It's so infuriating, and I can't just wait until the animation finishes because I'll lose DPS.
      So, how much does MfD outclass the other max level talents for Outlaw? I just want to know if it's even possible to take one of the other talents and have even somewhat competetive DPS.

      Hi,
      I need some help figuring out my rogues weak auras.
      I currently have this: https://gyazo.com/e9f6967a7c2e56fdb4a88f9c554ebd22
      What I want to happen is that when there are 3 seconds remaining on for ex rupture, the icon of rupture glows and once rupture is gone the icon just stays there glowing.
      Secondly, could someone give me the ID for the envenom buff as I cannot seem to track it whatever I do. Hopefully in the same format as the others in the picture above.
      Can anyone help me with this by guiding me on how to do it or giving me the string on the new one?
      Thanks in advance.
