Introduction for Assassination Rogue Boss Advice

In this section you will find information pertaining to each boss individually. It is recommended you follow the standard talent build found in the Builds, Talents, and Glyphs section of the guide unless otherwise advised on a per boss basis. Much of the information is geared towards Mythic encounters, though it can be applied equally to the lesser difficulties.

Each section is aimed at players progressing through the tiers, and as such, for old raids we will not advise the use of new items available after their patches have concluded.

1. Assassination Rogue Boss Advice: Antorus, the Burning Throne

1.1. Garothi Worldbreaker

There are not many ways to optimize damage for this encounter, other than ensuring you do not use your cooldowns before the intermissions at 65% and 35% health. Be sure to take full advantage of your defensive cooldowns to mitigate damage; Feint Icon Feint should be used before each cast of Eradication Icon Eradication completes, as it deals Physical damage. Your Crimson Vial Icon Crimson Vial is useful for additional damage reduction where necessary; it is particularly helpful for soaking Annihilation Icon Annihilation. On Mythic difficulty, be sure to be more liberal with your usage of Feint to ensure you are never at risk.

1.1.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Eye of Command Icon Eye of Command OR Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.2. Felhounds of Sargeras

Felhounds plays differently depending on the difficulty level your raid is working through the raid on. On Normal and Heroic, it is best to save your Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows cooldown for Consuming Sphere Icon Consuming Sphere to help you stick to the boss without worrying about damage intake. If you find healing to be unstable during mechanical overlaps, feel free to take advantage of Feint Icon Feint to ensure your survival.

On Mythic difficulty, your Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows can be adjusted based on what debuff you have. If you have Shadowtouched Icon Shadowtouched, you should be sure to stay near another melee and away from the tank, ensuring no unpredictable grips take place. As the damage intake on Mythic is considerably higher, you should feel free to adjust your Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows as necessary, while using your Feint Icon Feint/Crimson Vial Icon Crimson Vial as needed to survive.

1.2.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.3. Antoran High Command

The adds provide a great source of Combo Point generation throughout two of the three bosses. Try to apply Rupture Icon Ruptures to the Felblade Shocktroopers, provided they live for a reasonable duration, for the extra Energy return and damage.

Be ready to activate Feint Icon Feint quickly on Mythic, as the Demonic Charge Icon Demonic Charge with the follow up Bladestorm Icon Bladestorm can result in nearly instant death. Shadowstep Icon Shadowstep can be an even better escape, depending on where the boss or nearby allies are positioned. Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows should be used to remove the Shock Grenade Icon Shock Grenade debuff. While Chief Engineer Ishkar is active, it is wise to save Cloak in case the Shock Grenade is applied while Fusillade Icon Fusillade is inbound, as this can be a lethal combination. If you do not have Cloak available, be sure to activate Feint and/or Crimson Vial Icon Crimson Vial before the Shock Grenade stun is applied.

1.3.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.4. Eonar the Life-Binder

If you play this fight with conventional trinkets, you should focus solely on the large adds while using Fan of Knives Icon Fan of Knives to generate Combo Points. Use your cooldowns liberally, as you will almost certainly never get a full Vendetta Icon Vendetta anyway.

On Mythic difficulty, you should save your cooldowns for your assigned Paraxis group to ensure the Inquisitor is eliminated as quickly as possible.

For players concerned with dealing maximum overall damage, you should equip trinkets that grant additional AoE damage. The best available choices are Umbral Moonglaives Icon Umbral Moonglaives and Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish Icon Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish.

1.4.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Umbral Moonglaives Icon Umbral Moonglaives & Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish Icon Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish Icon Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish.

Talent Choice:

1.5. Portal Keeper Hasabel

Eye of Command Icon Eye of Command is generally a poor choice on this encounter, even if you are not visiting platforms, as you will want to Kick Icon Kick the Imps often. Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows is best used as a means to gain DPS if the boss is standing still inside a Collapsing World Icon Collapsing World or a Felstorm Barrage Icon Felstorm Barrage. Ensure you pay close attention to the boss' health if you are assigned to platforms, and budget your cooldown usage accordingly so they are not wasted.

1.5.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.6. Imonar the Soulhunter

Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows should be held to remove Sleep Canister Icon Sleep Canister debuffs immediately, maximizing DPS and keeping the rest of the melee safe from being accidentally clipped by the Slumber Gas Icon Slumber Gas.

On Mythic, this fight is primarily centered around survival instead of damage output. During each intermission, you should keep 100% uptime on your Feint Icon Feint, saving the Crimson Vial Icon Crimson Vial for when things are especially dangerous. Try to use your cooldowns at the beginning of each phase, as the phases only last for 20% of Imonar's health and generally pass by quickly.

1.6.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.7. Kin'garoth

Always ensure that your raid leader has assigned you to the construction bay at the back of the room, as Shadowstep Icon Shadowstep will always place you there. If the adds will live long enough for a full Vendetta Icon Vendetta, you should hold your first usage until the first set of adds for maximum damage. Use Kingsbane Icon Kingsbane and Toxic Blade Icon Toxic Blade immediately on the pull, holding the second usage for the first set of adds. Adjust your cooldown usage for the remainder of the fight as necessary, but remember that the adds take bonus damage when they spawn that decays the longer they are alive.

Use Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to avoid moving from Ruiner Icon Ruiner. On Mythic difficulty, it is often better to use Cloak to avoid the raid damage from multiple Diabolic Bomb Icon Diabolic Bombs being soaked in succession by the tanks. Crimson Vial Icon Crimson Vial is useful while the raid is moving into position for the adds, as raid damage is high on Mythic.

1.7.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.8. Varimathras

On Normal and Heroic, your Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows should be used to avoid the damage from Alone in the Darkness Icon Alone in the Darkness when you need to step out of the raid with Necrotic Embrace Icon Necrotic Embrace. If you are assigned to soak Marked Prey Icon Marked Prey, you should use Shadowstep Icon Shadowstep immediately to stay in range of the raid and avoiding triggering Alone in the Darkness.

On Mythic difficulty, you will likely be assigned to helping to immune Necrotic Embrace Icon Necrotic Embrace, which you will need Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows available for. Cloak must be used before the nearby ally's debuff expires, or it will spread to you as well. You should always hit the Shadow of Varimathras when it appears, though you should not bother applying bleeds.

1.8.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Eye of Command Icon Eye of Command OR Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.9. The Coven of Shivarra

Be sure to Garrote Icon Garrote both bosses at the start of the fight, and any time you Vanish Icon Vanish, if you are using Subterfuge Icon Subterfuge. Try to keep Rupture Icon Rupture and poisons rolling on both bosses as much as possible, using Poisoned Knife Icon Poisoned Knife to refresh Deadly Poison Icon Deadly Poison when necessary. Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows should be used flexibly, although it generally offers the most freedom during Storm of Darkness Icon Storm of Darkness. Be very conscious of the Whirling Saber Icon Whirling Saber's path, as it will kill you instantly on Heroic and Mythic. When the bosses swap positions, the path of the saber will also shift.

1.9.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.10. Aggramar

It is best to use Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to avoid the damage and disorient from Searing Tempest Icon Searing Tempest, allowing you higher uptime on the boss. If Cloak is unavailable, be sure to Shadowstep Icon Shadowstep out to an ally and Sprint Icon Sprint back in, or vice-versa. Face your Wake of Flame Icon Wake of Flame away from the ranged, to the side of the room, when it targets you. Apply Rupture Icon Rupture to both Flame of Taeshalach adds in the intermission.

On Mythic difficulty, you will likely be part of a group of players that soaks Empowered Flame Rend Icon Empowered Flame Rend with the minimum number of players necessary. In order to survive, you will need to use Feint Icon Feint each time. It is recommended you also use Crimson Vial Icon Crimson Vial for the increased damage reduction and healing. Be sure to avoid being hit by the other Empowered Flame Rend, or you will be instantly killed. Stay away from the tanks at all times or you risk being killed by Aggramar's cleave. Be very aware of the position of the tank with the Searing Binding Icon Searing Binding debuff, as you cannot be within 20 yards of them without risking death.

1.10.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

1.11. Argus the Unmaker

Whenever you are afflicted with Soulblight Icon Soulblight, you should move in the opposite direction of the group's rotation and Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows the debuff off, staying in melee range of the boss the entire time. Always prefer the Strength of the Sky Icon Strength of the Sky buff over the Strength of the Sea Icon Strength of the Sea, as the stats are far more valuable for you. Be sure to use your Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power at some point before the final phase, as the cooldown resets when you are killed by Argus.

You can also use Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to remove Soulburst in the second phase, but it does not remove the raid damage, so you must move away from the raid group first. Apply Rupture Icon Rupture to a few Constellar Designates and focus down the one with Nature Vulnerability Icon Nature Vulnerability, as you do significantly more Nature damage than Physical due to your poisons. Be sure to Kick Icon Kick Cosmic Beacon Icon Cosmic Beacon whenever it is cast.

On Mythic, liberal usage of Feint Icon Feint and Crimson Vial Icon Crimson Vial is necessary for your survival. Tortured Rage Icon Tortured Rage deals massive damage and you should never take the full damage without some form of damage reduction active. Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows should be used on Soulblight Icon Soulblight, as on the lower difficulties. You should always be running Feint when Soulbomb and Soulburst are going off in the second phase as well. It is best to use your second potion after you have picked up your final stack of the Strength of the Sky Icon Strength of the Sky buff. In the final, Mythic-only phase, you should assist with orb soaking. Feint should always be active when you soak an orb. Be sure to pay special attention to the Tortured Rage timer in this phase, as it will instantly kill you in combination with any other damage. Remember to re-use your Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power while Heroism Icon Heroism or Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust is active.

1.11.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Golganneth's Vitality Icon Golganneth's Vitality & Shadow-Singed Fang Icon Shadow-Singed Fang.

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles.

Talent Choice:

2. Tomb of Sargeras

A note on trinkets; as mentioned in our gear page, Specter of Betrayal Icon Specter of Betrayal can be easily swapped out for Engine of Eradication Icon Engine of Eradication or Vial of Ceaseless Toxins Icon Vial of Ceaseless Toxins with a negligible difference in damage. Since it is unlikely you will have a Mythic Specter before killing Mythic Kil'jaeden it means that Engine will be the preferred trinket for many progressing players.

2.1. Goroth

Goroth is a standard "Patchwerk" style encounter. For Rogues, the most important aspect of the fight is to avoid wasting your Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows in order to achieve maximum value. Solo soaking an Infernal from Rain of Brimstone Icon Rain of Brimstone (Mythic only) is a good way to expend your cooldown, or it can be used to avoid losing DPS uptime during Goroth's cast of Infernal Burning Icon Infernal Burning.

2.1.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Convergence of Fates Icon Convergence of Fates & Specter of Betrayal Icon Specter of Betrayal

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles

Talent Choice:

2.2. The Demonic Inquisition

The primary concern of this fight is your uptimes. Keep Rupture Icon Rupture, Garrote Icon Garrote, and Deadly Poison Icon Deadly Poison rolling on both bosses at all costs. Shuriken Toss Icon Shuriken Toss can be used to guarantee a Deadly Poison refresh if you cannot make it into melee range on your secondary target, or you are missing. Be sure to avoid using your cooldowns if you are nearing maximum Torment.

2.2.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Convergence of Fates Icon Convergence of Fates & Specter of Betrayal Icon Specter of Betrayal

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles

Talent Choice:

2.3. Harjatan

Try to spread your Rupture Icon Ruptures and Garrote Icon Garrotes around on the adds, then spam Envenom Icon Envenom on the boss in the hopes of proccing your  Icon Bag of Tricks. If you can hit 4+ targets, switch to Fan of Knives Icon Fan of Knives as your primary form of Combo Point generation.

2.3.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Convergence of Fates Icon Convergence of Fates & Specter of Betrayal Icon Specter of Betrayal

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles

Talent Choice:

2.4. Sisters of the Moon

This fight is a fairly standard single target encounter. Ensure you apply and maintain your poison and bleeds to Moontalon when it spawns. Be very careful not to use your cooldowns right before a phase change (70% and 40%) as the target will disappear. This also goes for your bleed effects.

2.4.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Convergence of Fates Icon Convergence of Fates & Specter of Betrayal Icon Specter of Betrayal

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles

Talent Choice:

2.5. Mistress Sassz'ine

This is a very straightforward fight for Assassination. If the Abyss Stalkers will live for more than a few seconds you should apply bleeds for maximum Energy return. Spam Envenom Icon Envenoms on the boss for  Icon Bag of Tricks procs and use Fan of Knives Icon Fan of Knives for Combo Point generation when applicable.

2.5.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Convergence of Fates Icon Convergence of Fates & Specter of Betrayal Icon Specter of Betrayal

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles

Talent Choice:

2.6. The Desolate Host

If you are part of the corporeal realm, you can always use your Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to avoid being sent to the spirit realm when targeted by Spear of Anguish Icon Spear of Anguish. Apply your poison and bleeds to the adds and use your Fan of Knives Icon Fan of Knives for increased Combo Point generation whenever there are 3+ adds stacked on your target.

2.6.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Convergence of Fates Icon Convergence of Fates & Specter of Betrayal Icon Specter of Betrayal (single target priority)/Umbral Moonglaives Icon Umbral Moonglaives (AoE priority)

Legendary Choice: Mantle of the Master Assassin Icon Mantle of the Master Assassin & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles

Talent Choice:

2.7. Maiden of Vigilance

This is a straightforward vacuum single target encounter. Use your cooldowns whenever available but be sure to have them ready for when your orb buffs are fully stacked in the intermission phase. Save your Vanish Icon Vanishes after the opener for this time. Use Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to remove Unstable Soul Icon Unstable Soul as necessary. If you are using Specter of Betrayal Icon Specter of Betrayal be careful not to use it right before the boss jumps away for the intermission.

Talent Choice:

2.8. Fallen Avatar

Maintain your Deadly Poison Icon Deadly Poison and bleeds on both the Fallen Avatar and the Maiden of Valor throughout Phase One. Use Shuriken Toss Icon Shuriken Toss to maintain your poison on Maiden as she will likely be moved around liberally by the tank(s). Feint Icon Feint and Crimson Vial Icon Crimson Vial (with Dense Concoction Icon Dense Concoction) to boost your soaking power during Touch of Sargeras Icon Touch of Sargeras and Dark Mark Icon Dark Marks. Try to avoid using Vendetta Icon Vendetta unless you really need the damage to break her Cleansing Protocol Icon Cleansing Protocol. Avoid damaging the Maiden outside of the shield excluding your poison and bleeds.

2.9. Kil'jaeden

Always save your Shadowstep Icon Shadowstep for the knockback when there is no Wailing Grasp Icon Wailing Grasp from the tank. On Mythic it is worth it to apply bleeds and poison to the reflections, but on Normal and Heroic they are likely to die too quickly to have any return. Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows should be used to avoid the knockback in Phase Two. Sprint Icon Sprint should be used to easily kite the flaming orbs. Soak as many Armageddon Hail Icon Armageddon Hails as possible, removing the stacks with Cloak if you reach 2+.

3. The Nighthold

3.1. Skorpyron

Use Fan of Knives Icon Fan of Knives liberally to generate Combo Points when the scorpids are active. If your focus is on boss damage, talent Agonizing Poison and focus on your normal single target priority, substituting Fan of Knives Icon Fan of Knives for Mutilate Icon Mutilate where appropriate. If you are aiming for maximum overall damage, talent instead into Alacrity Icon Alacrity and fish for  Icon Bag of Tricks procs on the scorpids.

3.1.1. Talents, Trinkets, and Legendaries

Trinket Choice: Convergence of Fates Icon Convergence of Fates & Ethereal Urn Icon Ethereal Urn

Legendary Choice: The Dreadlord's Deceit Icon The Dreadlord's Deceit & Zoldyck Family Training Shackles Icon Zoldyck Family Training Shackles

Talent Choice:

3.2. Chronomatic Anomaly

Focus on melting the boss as much as possible. If you are required to switch to Waning Time Particles, ensure you maintain a Rupture Icon Rupture on the boss. Use Poisoned Knife Icon Poisoned Knife to maintain your Agonizing Poison stacks on the boss while you are attacking the add. Use Fan of Knives Icon Fan of Knives to generate Combo Points off of the Fragmented Time Particles when they spawn, but focus your damage into the boss itself.

Talent Choice:

3.5. Tichondrius

Pay attention to the Echoes of the Void timer to avoid wasting your cooldowns when it is being channeled. You can use your Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to survive an Echoes for extra DPS. On Mythic you may instead need Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to soak Seeker Swarm. Elusiveness Icon Elusiveness is preferred in this situation as you will likely need Feint Icon Feint to survive through the high stacks of Carrion Swarm you will be taking. You should switch to Deadly Poison Icon Deadly Poison during the second channel of Echoes of the Void in each phase as Illusionary Night (intermission) will follow immediately. This will allow for increased bat damage, and you should switch back to Agonizing Poison as the phase ends.

On Heroic you should maintain Agonizing Poison stacks on all available targets (using Fan of Knives Icon Fan of Knives at 3 targets) as well as maintain Rupture Icon Rupture on these targets.
