On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Subtlety Rogue in World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5.

1. Best in Slot Items for Subtlety Rogue from Battle for Dazar'Alor

With the existence of Titanforged and Mythic+ dungeons, there is no such thing as a hard Best in Slot anymore. This is more of a guideline for the best pieces to keep an eye out for in your raid or dungeon (if applicable). Be smart, and if you find higher item level pieces with valuable stat combinations do not hesitate to upgrade to them.
