General Information

On this page, you will find tips, tricks, and strategies tailored to your Subtlety Rogue for each boss of the following raid: Sepulcher of the First Ones. All our content is updated for World of Warcraft — Shadowlands 9.2.

1.

Introduction

On this page, you will find Subtlety-Rogue-specific information to deal with each boss in the Sepulcher of the First Ones 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.

Disclaimer: Sepulcher of the First Ones is unique among raids in that three of its encounters were never available for testing. This, along with some of its others being changed substantially between their time on the public test realm and a live environment, means that many of the tips for these bosses will have to be changed over time.
