About Our Author

This guide has been written by Ashine, European Champion of the second Mythic Dungeon Invitational and a member of two top 60 guilds, Wiping as Intended and Group Therapy. He is regarded as one of the top Subtlety Rogues in the world and contributes a fair bit to the spec's theorycrafting. You can watch him play on Twitch.

1. Gems for Subtlety Rogue

You should use Kraken's Eye of Agility Icon Kraken's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze (or the cheaper Deadly Solstone Icon Deadly Solstone) in all other sockets.

Note that all four stats are close to each other for Subtlety, so if you have very little of certain stat, you might want to gem for that instead.

2. Enchants for Subtlety Rogue

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapons

3. Consumables for Subtlety Rogue

Battle Potion of Agility Icon Battle Potion of Agility is the best potion in all situations.

Flask of the Currents Icon Flask of the Currents is our flask of choice.

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Critical Strike food (Honey-Glazed Haunches Icon Honey-Glazed Haunches or the cheaper Kul Tiramisu Icon Kul Tiramisu).

Note that the two strongest ones are generally meant for raiding, which means that they are a lot more expensive than the other two.

Since Patch 8.0.1, Healthstones and Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion no longer share a cooldown with each other, which means that you can use both of them. It is also important to note that the Healing Potion is significantly stronger than Healthstones.

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stats. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
