Sub rogue with subterfuge play

Hi.

Im rather new to rogue play (Started this exp) so if i step on (noobish) ground on stuff i apologize in advance. 

 

(Party = Ambush -> 5 CP Evis)

 

So to my issue: On the icy veins opening "rotation" or opener. We should use (after pot and premed+snd) garrote->SR+trink and racial->Ambush->rupture->SD->and then party:P

But whenever i use SR after garrote or trinket or anything tbh i loose the effect of subterfuge? Like the millisecond i use SR or trinket or even racial. Aswell as macroed it to be cast right after garrote. Is this a bug on my end or have i missed something, a hot fix or what not:S 

 

And if thats how it should be:P then thats fine by me:

Untill now ive run with Carn's opener with shadow focus ofc : ambush->hemo->backstab->trink+SR+SD->rupture->and party:P And btw ty Carn for your topics on SD/vanish use etc. Helped me out big time when i first started to use my rogue in raids;)

 

2nd question. (And this is cause I'm rather new to rogue play. S) When you pool energy for shadow dance and vanish with subterfuge+glyphed vanish: First is there a magic energy count you should reach? And is it better to use a finisher and then pool just to get the 20 energy boost from finisher with 5 CP and is this only good on low energy cost finishers like rupture or SnD? or is it equally efficient with evis? 

 

Anyway ty for any advice/experience from the forum users:D Allso im Norwegian so sorry in advance if the typing somewhere is wrong/off:P

the one I gave before is Hemo > Ambush, so that Hemo is your first skill out of stealth. This allows Ambush to benefit from the 25% SV buff.

 

That being said, opening with Garrote is better now. You don't need to rush into SR and Dance with it though

  • Premed, SnD, Prepot
  • Garrote > Ambush
  • Keep casting Ambush while you're benefiting from Subterfuge
  • SR > Rupture > Dance after Subterfuge is off

I don't think that this is optimal after Vanish - I normally just go right into Ambush after Vanish, since Rupture will be on target for the SV damage buff anyways

 

 

As for your second question, I try and pool to 90-100 energy. No, you shouldn't waste cp on a finisher just for more energy regen - it's better to save your cp for more Evis casts while Find Weakness is up. For this reason it's always best to play with 6-8 cp at all times before using a finisher and building back up there. The only exception to that would be if you have Premed off cooldown, which will give you 4 cp for an Ambush instead of 2, so you'd want to enter Dance / Vanish with 4-5 in order to not waste it

 

Hopefully what I said there made sense

Just remember that the dummy won't give you HaT procs, so your in-raid generation will be higher. I'd go run lfr a few times to practice, since queues are so short now

About the combo points before vanish. As far as I remember, premed cp won't go to anticipation. So if you go to vanish with 5 cp or more and cast premed, you'll get zero points for it. It only affects the "normal" combo points, so you should have a max of 3 cp before premed.

 

Maybe something changed and I didn't saw. Can anyone confirm this?

Just tested this - I don't believe this was the case in SoO, since I remember it working fine, but you're apparently correct

 

Premed won't add Anticipation stacks. -.- TIL

I have one more question though. . . tongue.png

 

If vanish and SD go off cd about the same time - 10 secs difference. Lets say Vanish comes off cd first and then SD. Is it better to wait for SD? and then vanish or just pool cp and energy for the first that comes off cd?

 

And then pool again for the other one... i guess its the first thats comes off cd. Since waiting to use a FW cd is a loss. Less uptime on FW.? But I could be wrong. why im asking:P Ive just been useing the first one thats comes off cd. Though starting to get the feel for the energy pooling though thanks to you peeps:D

 

Sry for all these questions:S

10s is probably the longest you'd ever want to wait for.

 

If it's under that, it probably depends on your trinkets / enchants. If they're going to proc soon or are up right then, you should just Vanish right away so your Ambushes benefit from the procs. However, if you haven't had procs recently, you can probably wait and try to bait out the procs for your Dance

Yeah, it's particularly weird that popping a macro with SR+Coin+Racial cancels the ability to be able to Ambush, so I've adjusted my opener after talking to Xibu from Encore-Illidan last night to the following:

 

Prepull: (while in stealth) Prem -> Pot(2secs before pull) -> SND

Onpull: Garrote -> Ambush or Hemo(difference is minimal, one extends FW, the other gives you Sinister Calling procs during opener with Scales trinket giving you massive amounts of multistrike. Also note energy cost of both.) -> SR(once subterfuge ends) -> Rupture -> Dance

 

I bet you could open with different variations of the same. You could do SR+Dance in the same macro with rupture right after it to avoid having to refresh it during that period, too. It's really fun to experiment with things in this spec.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/KjRvcMqbYGrp16Bt#fight=3
      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.

      Hello! Just another desperate warrior, seeking to improve in any possible way!
      Im Seagaard, from Ravencrest: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/ravencrest/seagaard
      Im struggling doing as much DPS as i would want, and i am looking into possible changes. I know a 4 set bonus will be an obvious improvement, but i just dont think that is the only thing that makes my dps lack. 
      Here is a log of me wiping (alot) with my guild on Avatar.  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/K6XLCHaAvZ2r7G1y#fight=3&view=analytical&type=damage-done&source=1
      I know its not much, but there is a couple of good tries in there. 
      Any help or criticism is appreciated :)

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!
