Simple Find Weakness Question

2 posts in this topic

Hi there, long time rogue, first time sub rogue here, and I noticed in another post made by Carne that if there's more than 13 seconds between my find weakness procs, I should be checking to see if there aren't any cool downs I could be using to get it up. As it stands I've been using my various find weakness inducing abilities one right after the other, when my cool downs allow for this that is, as soon as the proc falls off or sometimes 1 second before to allow ambush to benefit from the previous  find weakness, however this leaves many gaps larger than 13 seconds in my rotation without find weakness being up, so my question is thus: Is there a way to delay my use of vanish/shadow dance so that find weakness ends up being up longer than burning them as soon as they're up?

Ademdum #1 Should I be pooling energy before I cast vanish/shadow dance (as an old school combat rogue it seems wrong to ever stop spamming buttons lol),or should I try to build a few CP so that I can immediately get two evis. off?

Thanks in advance for any advice and help!

Just in case here's a link to some logs, I know I really need to work on both my rupture and Slice and Dice up times >.<

Your damage will look really low to you cause your Rupture uptime is at like 55% and it's about 15% of my damage on its own. 


I'm going to go into a little more detail about Find Weakness, since I'm not really clear what you mean. Once you come out of Shadow Dance, you'll have 10s of Find Weakness available (assuming that your last skill was Ambush, which it should be). So you have 9s of your attacks (BS, Hemo, and Evis) ignoring the target's armou, then 1 last second to re-apply FW with Ambush. The easiest way to do that is obviously through Vanish > Ambush, which will give you 10 more seconds of FW being available.


Assuming that you do that, your FW uptime still won't be great, but it's not really supposed to be, either. I get around 33-35% on a fight where I can hit something regularly. 


As for your Addendum, did you read through the Pinned post on Shadow Dance use? It goes into pretty good detail there.


Quick side note: Warcraft Logs is a lot nicer for me to use, cause I can see more details there than I can on AskMrRobot. Personal opinion, anyways. The fact that you posted any logs and know to look at them for improvements is really good

      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      So I’ve read the Icy Veins Sin Rogue PvP Guide that suggests Cheapshot > Garrote > Mutilate > Rupture as an opener. It works very well, but I’m wondering if I should use another opening rotation with MotMA (gives 100% crit chance for 5 sec after exiting stealth mode)? I know that legendaries aren’t active in arenas, but I was thinking in wpvp/duels. 
      Cheers :)
