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.

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      Hi
      I am currently looking for people to pop into my streams and see if I can improve my dps rotation and all around wow play. Any feedback is appreciated

      So I've got these two specific items. The ACI is one of the most used trinkets on shadow priest, but compared to the Infernal, it has a low ilvl. The effect of Infernal stacks every second, and since critical strike is now the bis stat for shadow priest,  which one of the trinkets would you pick? 🙂
       
      Thanks in advance! 🙂

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
