Assassination Rogue DPS Gear and Best in Slot — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2.5
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) 8.2.5.
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.

Operation: Mechagon Gear
- Pocket-Sized Computation Device is a fairly potent trinket, when slotted with a Cyclotronic Blast red card. Yellow cards have random stats and as such simply depend on your current stat weights.
- Loop/Bit ring combinations from Operation: Mechagon do have extra damage components not on the item budgets, however, they need a to both be equipped in order to activate, and are limited to a base ilevel of 415. The combination of Logic Loop of Division and Overclocking Bit Band can outperform even high titanforged rings, so it is always advisable to compare the "set" by doing a simulation.
Cyclotronic Blast in particular can be very useful during progress, since it provides a powerful single target burst on a 2-minute cooldown.

* 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.
