Gearing your Outlaw Rogue in Season 4

With the start of Season 4, Amirdrassil, Vault of the Incarnates and Aberrus is opening up its gates, and you are once again able to acquire gear from the Raid. Mythic+ is also starting, same as the new PvP season, and this serves as a soft-reset for most of the gear you acquired during the last Season of Dragonflight.

Season 4 once again uses the Crest upgrade system that was introduced in Dragonflight. We recommend that you check out our dedicated page for more information on this gear upgrade system if you are not yet familiar with it:

Best Gear To Spend Bullions On For Outlaw Rogue in Season 4

Season 4 offers a way to target specific items from each of the three Awakened Raids, with the new Antique Bronze Bullion Icon Antique Bronze Bullion. We have compiled a list of high-value items that you should prioritize with your Bullions in Dragonflight Season 4 as an Outlaw Rogue. This list is not in order of priority, it is not exhaustive, and you will likely have to make choices depending on the gear you already acquired by the time you gain your Bullions. If you end up acquiring more Bullions while already having picked each of the mentioned choices here, feel free to pick any of the items from the BiS list below that you may not yet have gotten.

  • Thorncaller Claw Icon Thorncaller Claw - Our best Mainhand weapon. High priority.
  • Manic Grieftorch Icon Manic Grieftorch - Our strongest on-use trinket. High priority.
  • Storm-Eater's Boon Icon Storm-Eater's Boon - The uncontested best on-use trinket for AoE damage in Mythic+. High priority if you plan on playing a lot of Mythic+.
  • Cataclysmic Signet Brand Icon Cataclysmic Signet Brand - The best passive trinket for single-target.
  • Controlled Current Technique Icon Controlled Current Technique - A strong passive trinket choice, especially for Mythic+.
  • Seal of Diurna's Chosen Icon Seal of Diurna's Chosen - With many different fire damage sources available to us, this Ring is a very strong choice even early on into the Season.
  • Voice of the Silent Star Icon Voice of the Silent Star - This cloak has a higher ilvl than other options and instead of Stamina, it provides a stat proc instead. Very powerful, although it might not be worth playing in Mythic+ if survival is an issue due to the lower max HP you have.

BiS List for Outlaw Rogue

This list contains the highest DPS setup from most sources, for Outlaw Rogue

In some non-Tier slots, a 525 iLvl Craft is technically optimal, since you can customize the secondary stats to your liking and to get two embellished effects. A few 528 or 535 iLvl slots from Mythic Raid are the exception.

This list is by no means a replacement for simming yourself. Depending on your previous Great Vault choices and the gear you have available to yourself, your BiS gear might look different than this list in some spots.

The Importance of "Simming Yourself" as a Outlaw Rogue

With all the different layers of gearing currently available to players, it is impossible to cover all edge cases and individual recommendations in a guide. We therefore highly recommend simming your own character by using Raidbots. This website allows for precise and individualized recommendations that consider your exact talents, gear, trinket, and all the other layers of gearing that the game has to offer. Learning to use this tool is essential to maximizing your potential, as it is the only reliable way to get information on which piece of gear, enchant, gem, or trinket is the best for your character.

4.1.

Droptimizer

The Droptimizer feature from Raidbots lets you identify which dungeons and Raid Bosses offer the highest DPS upgrades to you. It simulates all of the potential upgrades in a raid or a dungeon and lists the bosses/dungeons by rank order of how much DPS you can expect to gain from each of the items it drops. We have a guide for it that you can access using the link below.

5.

Flightstones and Crest Upgrade Recommendations

These are some of the items you should prioritize on upgrading as high as possible early into the season:

  • A Mainhand weapon, like Thorncaller Claw Icon Thorncaller Claw or Forgestorm Icon Forgestorm.
  • Powerful trinkets like Cataclysmic Signet Brand Icon Cataclysmic Signet Brand, Manic Grieftorch Icon Manic Grieftorch or Coiled Serpent Idol Icon Coiled Serpent Idol
  • Items with a high stat budget, like your Chest, Helmet or Legs.
  • Embellished Items with damaging procs like Toxic Thorn Footwraps Icon Toxic Thorn Footwraps.

These are not the only items worth upgrading, of course. They simply offer the highest DPS gain early into the tier when you are limited by the weekly cap of the Crests.

6.

Season 4 Set - Amirdrassil, the Dream's Hope Tier Set

After Blizzard allowed players to vote on which tier set would be available in Season 4, Outlaw ended up sticking with the tier set from Season 3: Rogue Outlaw 10.2 Class Set 2pc Icon Rogue Outlaw 10.2 Class Set 2pc and Rogue Outlaw 10.2 Class Set 4pc Icon Rogue Outlaw 10.2 Class Set 4pc

If given a choice, try to prioritize the Shoulder, Chest, Gloves, and Legs slots for this. However, getting the Helmet to complete one of the bonuses is still better than any other gearing choice.

7.

Professions and Crafted Gear

Professions are a great way to gear up with your optimal secondary stats, as generating specific secondary stat combinations is now possible when adding special items to the crafting process. With the heavily reworked crafting system in Dragonflight, exploring the new professions will help you gear up throughout the expansion, as you will be able to craft some Mythic Raid item-level pieces further down the line.

If you want to find out more about professions, make sure to check out our Dragonflight Profession guide!

As your ability to craft items will be time-gated in the initial stages of Season 4, we highly recommend to get a Main Hand weapon as soon as possible, unless you can reliably get one elsewhere. Once you have a good weapon, work on Embellished Items next, and then craft whichever pieces you do not have high-item-level versions of yet.

7.1.

Embellished Items

Up to two of your crafted items can be Embellished. This is a similar concept as Unique-Equipped, as you can only wear two items that have the Embellished status. Some crafted items, many of which have powerful procs or beneficial effects by default, are considered Embellished. You can also add Embellishments from a variety of professions to any crafted item, adding the effect to this item either when creating it or at a later stage.

As there is a lot of competition for Embellishments, you will have to pick and choose the two strongest ones for your overall DPS output. The two best choices for this are:

  • Toxic Thorn Footwraps Icon Toxic Thorn Footwraps are still very good, and you can get good value with a lower item-level Toxified Armor Patch Icon Toxified Armor Patch since all the damage comes from the boots, not the patch.
  • A crafted item with Toxified Armor Patch Icon Toxified Armor Patch if you are playing the boots.
  • For Mythic+: A crafted item with Shadowflame-Tempered Armor Patch Icon Shadowflame-Tempered Armor Patch if you are playing Seal of Diurna's Chosen Icon Seal of Diurna's Chosen
  • For Mythic+: A crafted item with Blue Silken Lining Icon Blue Silken Lining, provided you have over ~50% uptime on the effect.
7.2.

Adding Sockets to Gear

You can add sockets to your necklace by using a Tiered Medallion Setting Icon Tiered Medallion Setting on it. Depending on the rank of the Medallion, you can add up to 3 sockets to any necklace you own.

You can also add sockets to Helmets, Belts, Bracers, Necks and Rings with a consumable you can get if you do not select any of the choices in your Great Vault. 6 of these tokens can be traded in for an item that allows you to add a socket to any piece of gear you acquired in Season 4.

8.

Stat Priorities

Which gems and enchants to use heavily depends on your current stat priority. As previously mentioned, this priority can shift and change whenever you acquire new gear, so simming yourself to figure out the best use of your newly acquired socket is highly recommended. The general rule is to prioritize Versatility and Critical Strike on as many pieces of gear as possible, and prioritizing those stats for any consumables as well.

9.

Best Trinkets for Outlaw Rogue in Season 4

There are a number of good trinkets available for Outlaw Rogue in Season 4, from a variety of different sources. Some relevant ones to look for are:

  • Manic Grieftorch Icon Manic Grieftorch - The strongest trinket for Outlaw, which can ease progression on certain encounters with its burst damage as well.
  • Cataclysmic Signet Brand Icon Cataclysmic Signet Brand - A very strong passive trinket that also procs Seal of Diurna's Chosen Icon Seal of Diurna's Chosen. Best option on fights lasting 5+ minutes.
  • Controlled Current Technique Icon Controlled Current Technique - A strong passive trinket choice, especially for Mythic+.
  • Dragonfire Bomb Dispenser Icon Dragonfire Bomb Dispenser - A good choice to increase the proc rate of Seal of Diurna's Chosen Icon Seal of Diurna's Chosen a bit, but worse than some other passive options in Mythic+.
  • Bandolier of Twisted Blades Icon Bandolier of Twisted Blades - A good option for Mythic+ as it scales better in multi-target situations.
  • Neltharion's Call to Suffering Icon Neltharion's Call to Suffering - Another good passive option for Mythic+, as the proc is very powerful.
  • Globe of Jagged Ice Icon Globe of Jagged Ice - A decent alternative from Mythic+, but all the previously mentioned trinkets from raid are as a good or better.
