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, what Legendaries to equip and more. Below there is a video guiding you on how to sim your character. Underneath that, you will find some generic simulations that apply to most people.


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.

This is very useful because you can use it for the duration of the entire tier. Currently, this does not account for a chance of Warforged, but that might change eventually.

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.

Shadowlands Release Simulations for Assassination Rogue

With the release of Shadowlands, and a lot of expected changes throughout the first few weeks of the expansion, it is difficult to accurately judge the individual power of legendary powers, Covenants, Soulbinds and all the other incremental power improvements that make up the entire DPS toolkit of Assassination Rogue. Fuu (Fuu#7750 on Discord) of the Rogue Theorycrafting Community has compiled a spreadsheet with a variety of different simulations regarding the individual and combined benefits of legendary powers, Covenants, Soulbinds, Conduits and racial bonuses for both raiding and Mythic+ scenarios.
