General Information

On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Assassination Rogue in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2. We also give budget alternatives.

1. Best Gems for Assassination Rogue

You should use Leviathan's Eye of Agility Icon Leviathan's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Deadly Lava Lazuli Icon Deadly Lava Lazuli (or the cheaper Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze) in all other sockets.

2. Best Enchants for Assassination Rogue

Slot Enchantment
Main Hand
Off Hand

3. Consumables for Assassination Rogue

3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Assassination

Greater Flask of the Currents Icon Greater Flask of the Currents should be used for raids. For potions you should use Potion of Focused Resolve Icon Potion of Focused Resolve for pure single target, Superior Battle Potion of Agility Icon Superior Battle Potion of Agility for cleave fights under 4 targets, and Potion of Empowered Proximity Icon Potion of Empowered Proximity for 4 or more targets.

Since Patch 8.0.1, Healthstones no longer share a cooldown with health potions. This means that players should always use Abyssal Healing Potion Icon Abyssal Healing Potions and Healthstones whenever available.

3.2. Best Food for Assassination

You should eat from the Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table when possible, and otherwise Critical Strike food (Mech-Dowel's Big Mech Icon Mech-Dowel's "Big Mech" or the cheaper Honey-Glazed Haunches Icon Honey-Glazed Haunches).

3.3. Augment Runes for Assassination

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
