WoW Classic Best Rogue Weapons Guide

Last updated on Oct 02, 2019 at 07:42 by Abyssalwave 3 comments

Weapons are your primary piece of gear to upgrade, meaning you want to focus on upgrading your weapon as frequently as possible. Your weapon as a Rogue also will determine the attacks you will be able to do. With a Dagger you can use Ambush Icon Ambush and Backstab Icon Backstab and with Swords you will be able to use Garrote Icon Garrote. This also means that the weapon will heavily influence what talents you will be taking. This means it is the slot of gear that is the most important to keep upgrading as you level.

Daggers for WoW Classic Rogues

Daggers are what you will start off with when you first make your Rogue. Daggers are required for certain abilities as a Rogue such as Ambush Icon Ambush and using Daggers is a very strong choice if you choose to PvP while you level.

1.2.

Swords for WoW Classic Rogues

Swords are one of the most popular choices for leveling since you will get the talent Sword Specialization Icon Sword Specialization later into your leveling tree. Swords are especially strong if you are a Human Rogue since you have the racial Sword Specialization Icon Sword Specialization which is a significant DPS increase when using Swords.

1.3.

Maces for WoW Classic Rogues

There are many Maces that can be upgrades for you while leveling so it is recommended that you train Maces so you will be able to equip one if it is an upgrade.

1.4.

Thrown Weapons for WoW Classic Rogues

You will start with the ability to use Thrown Weapons and 200 Thrown Weapons. This is a great way to initiate combat without pulling multiple enemies so make sure that you always have Thrown Weapons available if you are not using Bows or Crossbows.

1.5.

Bows for WoW Classic Rogues

Bows are a great upgrade over Thrown Weapons since they also can provide you with stats even if you aren't using the bow to attack. This is also a great way to initiate combat without body pulling multiple targets.

1.6.

Crossbows for WoW Classic Rogues

Crossbows are also a great upgrade over Thrown Weapons since they also like the bows can provide stats. Crossbows are some of the best end game gear but it is recommended that you train both Crossbows and Bows and just use the best one available while leveling.

1.7.

Guns for WoW Classic Rogues

Guns are the third alternative to Thrown Weapons that can also offer stats. Make sure to train all 3 (Bows, Crossbows, and Guns) so you can equip any upgrades that you get.
