General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Assassination Rogue for each boss of the following raid: Crucible of Storms. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2.5.



This page will be a rough outline of the bosses and mechanics in the Crucible of Storms raid. This page will focus primarily on how an Assassination Rogue can optimize its performance on the raid bosses in Crucible of Storms, and not on an actual raid strategy for the bosses. Initially, this page will focus on Heroic mode and lower, however, as more bosses are being killed on Mythic, the guide will also include optimizations for Mythic bosses.


Assassination in Crucible of Storms

Assassination remains the go-to spec for raiding in Battle of Dazar'alor. It remains a strong single target spec, has great potential for cleave, and is even able to handle spread cleave somewhat.
