Last updated on Dec 10, 2018 at 14:45 by GrayHound 62 comments

On this page, we go over several of the most frequently asked questions regarding Assassination Rogue in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1. This will be updated as more common repeated questions surface over the course of the expansion.

1. Why Does Haste Have Such High Value in SimulationCraft?

In Battle for Azeroth, your DoTs now scale with Haste, making it affect much larger portion of your damage.

2. Does Our Stat Priority Change on Multi-Target?

On multiple targets, you might not have Haste as your best stat, due to gaining too much Energy and it leaving you global cooldown capped and unable to fully benefit from all the extra Haste.

3. What Piece is Better, X or Y?

Generally that depends on the rest of your gear, due to how secondary stats interact with one another. When it comes to comparing Azerite pieces, it becomes even more convoluted, as some of the traits have non stacking effects, such as percentage-based proc chances or duration increases, thus making it even harder for you to estimate; as such you are generally better off using sims to compare pieces (and in Azerite's case compare multiple trait combinations for each piece), in order to find the best option for you.

We have a guide on how to sim yourself here:

4. How Much of X Stat Should I Have?

Currently there are no established breakpoints to follow, and since as you gain one stat it slowly loses value while other gains it (relatively), you do not want to sacrifice all of your other stats in order to hit a magical number in one of them.
