General Information

On this page, you will find a number of useful simulation results for your Assassination Rogues in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.1.



With the advent of certain tools, such as Raidbots, simulating your character has now become simple enough that we can recommend even the average player to sim their own character. It is through advanced simulations that many of the recommendations in this guide are found, and by doing your own you can easily figure out what talents you should be using with your particular gearing combination, what gear to equip, and more. Below you can find a video that will guide you on how to sim your character. We will also include some more generic information and simulations that might help you understand the math behind your spec and the recommended choices a bit better.


Simple Upgrade Finder

One of the most useful additions to simulations software is the new Droptimizer" feature on Raidbots.

The UI will let you pick the raid and difficulty.

After you finish running the simulation, you will be presented with the following graphic, which shows the value of upgrades from each boss, the average value of a drop, and the best-case scenario.

Dragonflight Simulations for Assassination Rogue

With all the changes happening to the game and the new talent system, we felt it necessary to compile a variety of different simulations to help you in case you are struggling to decide on your gearing choice. Whispyr (Whispyr#0001 on Discord) of the Rogue Theorycrafting Community has compiled a list of simulations to compare these options under different circumstances, where you can find the most recent and best simulations regarding the individual and combined benefits of different talent selections, gameplay environments and many other gearing and character choices.

The sims will be updated regularly, once we are able to properly sim for Patch 10.1.
