General Information

On this page, we go over several of the most frequently asked questions regarding Outlaw Rogue in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.3. This will be updated as more common repeated questions surface over the course of the expansion.


Should I Use a Fast or a Slow Off-Hand?

Currently it does not matter, as long as they are the same item level, as the damage output should be the same.


How Much Haste Should Outlaw Rogues Have? / Is There a Haste Cap?

There is currently no breakpoint which is required for Outlaw, nor is there a realistic value which causes Haste to become useless.


Does Our Stat Priority Change on Multi-Target?

Stat priority remains nearly the same on single and multi-target, as such it's not something worth worrying about.


Which Race or Racial Ability is the best for Outlaw Rogue?

The DPS differences between the races are fairly minimal. The best races for DPS on Horde are Blood Elf, Zandalari Trolls with the Embrace of Pa'ku and Troll. For Alliance Dwarfs, Void Elf and Kul'tiran are the best.


What Piece is Better, X or Y?

Generally that depends on the rest of your gear, due to how secondary stats interact with one another. When it comes to comparing Azerite pieces, it becomes even more convoluted, as some of the traits have non stacking effects, such as percentage-based proc chances or duration increases, thus making it even harder for you to estimate, as such you are generally better off using sims to compare pieces (and in Azerite's case compare multiple trait combinations for each piece), in order to find the best option for you.

We have a guide on how to sim yourself here:


How Much of X Stat Should I Have?

Currently there are no established breakpoints to follow, and since as you gain one stat it slowly loses value while other gains it (relatively), you do not want to sacrifice all of your other stats in order to hit a magical number in one of them.
