General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Subtlety Rogue for each boss of the following raid: Battle of Dazar'alor. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2.

1. Disclaimer

This page will be a rough outline of the bosses and mechanics in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid. This page will focus primarily on how a Subtlety Rogue can optimize its performance on the raid bosses in Battle of Dazar'alor, 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.

2. Subtlety in Battle of Dazar'alor

Subtlety has one of the best short-term burst DPS in the game, which seems to be quite valuable in Battle of Dazar'alor. However, the raid has few bosses that contain low target amount cleave, which is Subtlety's biggest weakness. Overall, Subtlety seems to be a competitive spec but outclassed on many fights by Assassination due to fight design.
