The Basics of Stats for Assassination Rogue
For raiding the secondary stat priority for Assassination Rogue is as follows:
- Critical Strike;
For Mythic+ your secondary stat priority changes as follows:
- Critical Strike;
While Haste is technically the worst stat for AoE, the new seasonal affix, as well as most bosses, require a solid single-target DPS as well. Haste is still a very strong secondary stat for raw single-target and you should not neglect it entirely..
As we reach higher item-levels, it is vital to understand that the diminishing returns on secondary stats might shift your priorities as you acquire better and better gear. As all of our stats are very close in value to each other, we strongly recommend to sim yourself regularly to get a better idea of what item is going to be the best choice in your Great Vault, or if one item is better than another one.
Gems, Enchants, and Consumables
The gems, enchants, and consumables you will use are directly derived from your stat priority. More information can be found on our Stats page.
These statistics have been obtained by combining common sense, in-game testing, and simulations using SimulationCraft.

Agility is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.
Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with attacks. As an Assassination Rogue, this statistic also contributes to granting you extra Combo Points through Seal Fate.
Versatility is a flat-out damage done increase and damage taken reduction.
