WotLK Classic Subtlety Rogue Spell Summary
On this page, we present you with all spells and procs that you need to understand as a Subtlety Rogue in WotLK Classic.
Combo Point Generators
Subtlety uses Hemorrhage as its main generator, a talent obtained in the Subtlety tree. It is cheap and applies a unique debuff that increases the damage taken by the target from all Physical attacks by a flat amount.
Combo Point Spenders
Slice and Dice increases your attack speed and has the highest damage increase of all spenders.
Rupture is a bleed that is maintained on your main target, dealing damage over time.
Eviscerate is your main filler spender, dealing instant damage per Combo Point.
Sap can be useful to help control adds before a pull or deal with particularly dangerous trash pulls by incapacitating an enemy for up to 45 seconds.
Utility and Defensives
Rogues have a number of abilities available to them that not only help the raid or group in some way, but also personally grant them immunity to both mechanics and damage at times.
Shadowstep is a Subtlety talent that allows you to teleport behind your current target and increases your movement speed, as well as the damage of your next ability.
Tricks of the Trade is a massively important buff for Rogues, it can be used to grant a damage buff to a friendly damage dealer, or used on a tank to help them generate threat and keep other damage dealers safe.
Cloak of Shadows removes all negative spell effects, as well as granting you an extremely high chance to resist incoming spells for its duration. It can be extremely powerful in completely avoiding certain mechanics on fights.
Distract makes PvE enemies stand still for up to 10 seconds, allowing you to stall patrols and let your raid or group through tight spots and skips.
Kick interrupts the current spell being cast and locks the user out of that school for a period of time.
Sprint greatly increases your movement speed for a period of time.
