The guide will cover everything from talent choices, PvP talents, gameplay and rotation, and useful racial bonuses. It is most applicable to Arena content, but most talents and racial bonuses will work in Rated Battlegrounds and skirmishes.

1.

Outlaw Rogues in the Current Meta

Outlaw Rogues have strong sustained damage, excellent crowd control tools, and multiple ways to reduce the cooldown of key abilities, such as Blind Icon Blind or Vanish Icon Vanish, allowing them to desync their offensive abilities from the enemy defensive toolkit and trinkets. It will be almost impossible for the enemy team to know when the Outlaw Rogue will next have their powerful cooldowns available, making it very hard to counter them and allowing the Outlaw Rogue to land a kill. Outlaw Rogues are also much tankier than other specializations, especially versus other melees, giving them more time to find a kill.

2.

Noteworthy Season 4 changes

Veil of Midnight Icon Veil of Midnight now only allows Cloak of Shadows Icon Cloak of Shadows to also remove harmful physical effects. It no longer increases dodge chance. This is a nerf to survivability, but Outlaw remains very durable.

3.

Noteworthy Patch 10.2 changes

Outlaw has been reworked with Patch 10.2. Down below are the most important changes:

  • Find Weakness Icon Find Weakness has been moved into the Subtlety tree, making Outlaw lose the talent. This is a meaningful damage nerf against high armor targets.
  • Between the Eyes Icon Between the Eyes has been changed and is now a buff on the Rogue rather than a debuff on the enemy. That makes the specialization more flexible when it comes to swaps.
  • Ghostly Strike Icon Ghostly Strike has been changed. It now has a 1.5min cooldown and increases damage done to the target by 15% for 12s.
