Assassination Rogue in Uldir

This page will focus on how an Assassination Rogue can optimize its performance on the raid bosses in the Uldir raid, and not on an actual raid strategy for the bosses. Initially, this page will focus on Heroic mode and lower, however, as more bosses are being killed on Mythic, the guide will also include optimizations for Mythic bosses.

Assassination Rogues are going to be competitive in Uldir, due to their strong burst DPS.
