About Our Author

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Gray_Hound, a Rogue theorycrafter who raids in Strawberry Puppy Kisses. You can find him on Twitch and Twitter.

1. Gems for Assassination Rogue

You should use Kraken's Eye of Agility Icon Kraken's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye (or the cheaper Quick Golden Beryl Icon Quick Golden Beryl) in all other sockets.

2. Enchants for Assassination Rogue

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Main Hand
Off Hand

3. Consumables for Assassination Rogue

Flask of the Currents Icon Flask of the Currents should be used for raids along with Battle Potion of Agility Icon Battle Potion of Agility as your potion of choice.

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Haste food (Swamp Fish 'n Chips Icon Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts Icon Ravenberry Tarts).

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

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stats. 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.
