General Information

On this page, you will find a number of useful simulation results for your Assassination Rogues in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.



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 running your own simulations via raidbots, 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 general information and simulations (as far as they are publicly available) 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.

With all the changes happening to the game, the new talent system, and the large amount of changes to the Rogue class and Assassination as a spec, simulations are updated on an almost daily basis.
