Assassination Rogue DPS Gear and Best in Slot — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1
On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Assassination Rogue in World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.
1. Best in Slot List for Assassination Rogue
With the existence of Titanforged and Mythic+ dungeons, there is no such thing as a hard Best in Slot anymore. This is more of a guideline for the best pieces to keep an eye out for in your raid or dungeon (if applicable). Be smart, and if you find higher item level pieces with valuable stat combinations do not hesitate to upgrade to them.
1.1. Raid Gear
|Helm*||Cowl of Dark Portents||Mythrax the Unraveler|
|Shoulders*||Usurper's Bloodcaked Spaulders||Zul|
|Chest*||Jerkin of the Aberrant Chimera||Fetid Devourer|
|Cloak||Fetid Horror's Tanglecloak||Fetid Devourer|
|Wrists||Wristwraps of Coursing Miasma||Vectis|
|Gloves||Gloves of Descending Madness||Taloc|
|Belt||Replicated Chitin Cord||Zek'voz|
|Boots||Quarantine Protocol Treads||Zek'voz|
|Ring #1||Rot-Scour Ring||M.O.T.H.E.R.|
|Ring #2||Band of Certain Annihilation||Mythrax the Unraveler|
|Weapon MH||Latticework Scalpel||M.O.T.H.E.R.|
|Weapon OH||Latticework Scalpel||M.O.T.H.E.R.|
|Trinket 1**||Frenetic Corpuscle||Fetid Devourer|
|Trinket 2xi**||Construct Overcharger||Talon|
* Disclaimer #1 — Currently, all of the raid Azerite pieces outside of Jerkin of the Aberrant Chimera come with somewhat underwhelming traits. Due to this, actual BiS gear would involve getting one of the other slots from the weekly Mythic+ cache. You only need one, since you can use other slot to activate Reorigination Array proc.
** Disclaimer #2 — Currently, item level 370 trinkets (base reward from level 10 Mythic+) provide more DPS than 385 (mythic) versions of raid trinkets. Due to this, it is best to make sure if raid trinkets are actually your best option by siming your gear.
1.2. Dungeon Gear
|Helm||Cowl of Fluid Machinations||Vol'zith the Whisperer (Shrine of the Storm)|
|Shoulders||Gold-Tasseled Epaulets||Harlan Sweete (Freehold)|

|Cloak||Cloak of Questionable Intent||Rixxa Fluxflame (The MOTHERLODE!!)|
|Wrists||Servo-Arm Bindings||Coin-Operated Crowd Pummeler (The MOTHERLODE!!)|
|Gloves||Underrot Grotto Tenders||Cragmaw the Infested (The Underrot)|
|Belt||Port Pillager's Belt||Dread Captain Lockwood (Siege of Boralus)|
