General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Subtlety Rogue for each boss of the following raid: Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.7.

1.

Introduction

On this page, you will find Subtlety-Rogue-specific information to deal with each boss in the Aberrus raid.

This page assumes that you already understand most of the mechanics of each encounter. These can be found on the full raid guide, so what is contained here are details specifically tailored toward Subtlety Rogues and what you can do to deal with each fight as best as possible.

PLEASE NOTE: With the changes that came to Subtlety in 10.2.5 that changes many recommendations to all bosses because of Invigorating Shadowdust Icon Invigorating Shadowdust so the boss pages will take time to update as we figure out the different cooldown timings for the bosses.

Talents

Below is the most commonly used build for single-target, which you will use for most raid encounters.

You can easily import the talent tree below into the game by pressing 'Copy Export String':

Because of how the Subtlety spec tree is structured, taking AoE talents reduces our single-target by quite a bit. AoE talent builds can be better for overall damage on certain bosses while being detrimental to the raid progress.

Also note that the Rogue Class tree forces us to make choices between Feint Icon Feint, Cheat Death Icon Cheat Death, Master Poisoner Icon Master Poisoner, and Fleet Footed Icon Fleet Footed, as we need more points to get all of them without sacrificing DPS. The boss-specific talent links will be optimized with this in mind, as Feint can be useless on some bosses.
