General Information

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

1. Introduction

In this section, you will find information and guidance for each boss individually in the Eternal Palace raid as a Subtlety Rogue. These are not complete encounter guides, but rather provide specific tips for the bosses as a Subtlety Rogue.

2. Subtlety Rogues in The Eternal Palace

Subtlety Rogues are looking to be quite weak in The Eternal Palace. It is weaker than both Outlaw and Assassination in terms of output, while also suffering a lot more from raid mechanics that force you to go out of melee range. The only potential strength that Subtlety has is the ability to spec into strong 10-second burst windows, which is very situational. Barring any number tuning, Subtlety will continue to be the weakest Rogue spec by a large margin.
