The Basics of Stats for Subtlety Rogue


Single-Target Stat Priority

The general single-target stat priority for a Subtlety Rogue is:

  1. Critical Strike;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Mastery;
  4. Haste.

On single-target, all of the stats are very close to each other for Subtlety Rogues, and thus, you should always simulate your own character to see your stat weights.


Multi-Target Stat Priority

The general multi-target stat priority for a Subtlety Rogue is:

  1. Critical Strike;
  2. Mastery;
  3. Versatility;
  4. Haste.

On multi-target, Mastery gains value due to the increased amount of finishers that we are able to put out, whilst Haste loses some value because of the accelerated resource gain in multi-target situations.


Important Notes About Stat Priorities

These stat priorities are obtained by using a SimulationCraft gear setup that has equal stats and no trinkets enabled. To get accurate stat weights for your own character, you should simulate yourself using Raidbots.

Keep in mind that the more you have of a stat, the less valuable it becomes.


Gems, Enchants and Consumables

Gems, enchants, and consumables are directly linked to your stat priority. You can find more information about this topic in our dedicated page.


Subtlety Rogue Stat Explanations

Agility is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.

Mastery increases the damage of your finishers through Mastery: Executioner Icon Mastery: Executioner.

Critical Strike increases your chance to critically hit with all spells and abilities.

Versatility is a flat-out damage done increase and damage taken reduction.

Haste increases your Energy regeneration, Rupture Icon Rupture tick rate and attack speed. Increased attack speed generates extra Combo Points via Shadow Techniques Icon Shadow Techniques.
