Pre-Raid Best in Slot List for Rogues in the Season of Mastery

This is the gear we recommend for damage dealing as a Rogue, before setting foot into Molten Core or Onyxia's Lair. If you are a PVP player, the blue PVP shoulders and legs are BiS, if not use the 2/2 Devilsaur set as described below. The Darkmantle set comes from upgrading the Shadowcraft set with the t0.5 questline, starting with An Earnest Proposition. The whole Darkmantle set, or at least four parts of it, will be Best in Slot until late AQ40, so it is very worthwile to complete this quest chain.

Special thanks goes out to Simonize (Simon#0088 on Discord) in helping to make sure this list is in line with current Rogue theorycrafting.
