14 Feb 2014 Forum Guidelines - Please Read Welcome to the World of Warcraft discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system ( can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The World of Warcraft forums are for discussion of topics directly related to World of Warcraft The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.Takralus2 14 Feb 2014

27 Jan Interesting and useful rogue macros Hi there fellow rogues, I thought i share some of the macros i use, i developed them myself and found them extremely useful. ... ... These macros are for pvp, when you are spamming your main ability like mad and you lost target for some reason, (rogue vanished, mage turned invisible, hunter feigned death) these will cast fan of knives right away automaticaly. Update: As Mannmedkniv suggested I added the /startattack command to the backstab macro, that way when you cant manage to land a succesful backstab you will cause some dps at least. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ... This is a spammable macro when you notice there is an enemy rogue nearby, it will target the rogue and sap him even if you are currently targetting a further enemy, it ignores pets as well. If you want to sap your current target you hold down shift or ctrl or alt no matter wich and it will sap your current target. Place this on your default action bar in stealth mode. ... Place this macro to the same bind as the previous one but in normal stance (no stealth), useful when you see a rogue while you are mounted. If you spam its key then you will turn stealthed then sap the rogue, if he gets you first then it will blind him. This macro also works for jumping down from your flying mount stealthed, which is a very usefull thing in many situations. In combat it also works as a default mouseover Blind macro but you can simply blind any1 with this as well. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ... This is a simple vanish macro, probably most of you have something similar, it saves you from wasting your vanish when you would come out of combat anyway. ... Replace every man for himself to /use *your pvp trinket* and replace poisons on demand! This macro only makes sense if you put it somewhere else then the default action bar, if you do so it saves you 3 slots. When you are stealthed you would not use your trinket anyways so when you are stealthed and hit this macro it applies crippling poison to your mainhand, if you hold down shift it puts mind numbing on your offhand, and if you hold down alt it applies crippling poison on your thrown weapon. It also handles the pop up questions. When you are out of stealth it works as a simple pvp trinket. ... This is another 3 in 1 macro, if you target a friendly player in your group it casts Tricks of Trade on him, if you hold down shift it casts Slice and Dice otherwise its a simple Cheap Shot. ... This macro targets the nearest enemy player and ignores mobs and pets when you are in your pvp talent spec, and targets the nearest enemy no matter if its a mob or player when you are in your pve talent spec. Bind this to your tab key! Swap spec 1 and spec 2 if your pvp spec is on the first talent panel and pve on your second. I hope at least 1 or 2 of these macros were helpful for some1.Mawerrick175 27 Jan
28 Oct [Guide] Outlaw Rogue Guide 7.0 Legion Updated 4/716 Some of you may remember me from writing the currently stickied assassination guide or from YouTube. Welcome to the first ever guide for Outlaw rogue in the Legion expansion. With outlaw being a new spec in the game which seems to be a simpler version of rogues old Combat spec the rotation seems to be pretty straight forward. Notable changes to the spec:- 1. Shallow, Moderate and Deep insight has been removed from the game 2. Finishers no longer reduce cooldown times (See Talent Roll the Bones) 3. Sinister strike combo point builder has been changed to saberslash 4. Slice and dice is now a talent 5. Killing spree is now a talent 5. Revealing strike removed 6. Pistol shot is a ranged secondary combo point builder 7. Kidney shot is replaced with a ranged stun called between the eyes 8. Evasion name changed to riposte 9. We have no poisons 10. Need to use artifact so no weapon switching. Stat Priority (Subject to change) Stat priority: Single Target Preraid- Agi ~= Wdps ~= Vers > Haste ~= Crit > Mastery Heroic - Agi ~= Wdps ~= Vers > Crit ~= Mastery > Haste Mythic - Agi ~= Wdps ~= Vers > Crit > Mastery > Haste AOE - Agi ~= Wdps ~= Vers > Crit > Mastery > Haste Legendary - Insignia of Ravenholdt ring > Thraxis treads feet > Sinidaria of symbiot belt RELIC PRIORITY 1. Run Through Damage : Fates Thirst 2. Reduce Finisher Cost : Fate Bringer 3. Combat Potency : Fortune Strikes 4. Reduce Adrenaline Rush : Fortunes Boon Gemming (Subject to change) Prismatic : vers Enchant Neck: Mark of the claw Back: Agility Rings: Vers Food Food: Seed-battered Fish Flasks and Pots Flask: Flask of the seventh Demon Potion : Potion of the old wars Optimal Artifact Leveling path Here is the current optimal Path during Artifact Progression Notable Passive Talents Combat potency: Your off-hand attacks have a chance to generate 15 energy Fleet footed: Your movement speed is increased by 15% and you take reduced fall damage Mastery: Main Gauche: Your Main hand has a %chance to trigger and attack with your offhand (physical damage) Artifact Ability Curse of the Dread blades Instant (2 minute cooldown) one saberslash fills your combo points maximum (6 with deeper stratagem talent) Every finisher you spend will consume 5% of your HP Lasts 12 seconds Single Target Talents (Subject to change) T15: Ghost Strikes T30: Hit and Run (preference) T45: Deeper Strategem T60: Cheat death T75: Prey on the weak T90: Alacrity T100: Mark for Death Note: This is a single target build. I have not tested too much on single target bosses and will update with more findings and changes. AoE talent build T15: Ghost Strikes T30: Hit and Run (preference) T45: Deeper Strategem T60: Cheat death T75: Prey on the weak T90: Alacrity T100: Mark for Death The bases of the build revolves around fast paced flurry of finishers. The more finishers you do the more haste to obtain to do more finishers. Mark for Death and Blade Flurry really helps build momentum on AOE trash packs so use it as much as possible. The aim is to ramp up alacrity to 20 stacks (20% haste increase) as soon as possible. This is done quickly thanks to Adrenaline Rush and Artifact power. The more haste you have means more energy for cleaving and using finishers. . Mark for death low adds before they die for 5 point finishers to increase alacrity buff. see below. Tooltips Ghostly strikes: Increase damage to the target with ghostly strikes debuff Acrobatic strikes : melee attacks 3 yards further Deeper Strategem: Allows for 6 point finishers Alacrity: Your finishing moves have 20% chance per combo point to grant 1% haste for 20 seconds, [stacking 25 times Mark for death: marks a target, generating 5 points instantly. Cooldown reset if target dies Alacrity Notes: Maintaining 100% uptime on alacrity is very important. You must use a 5 point finisher before the full duration runs out every time or you will have to start stacking the haste increase from the start again. If there will be a period of time where you cannot use a finisher but you can mark for death a target. it's a good idea to mark for death and then use slice and dice when alacrity buff is low to ensure the buff doesn't reset. Roll The Bones ***AoE Build Lets speak a little on Roll the Bones before we go any further since it is the bread and butter of the spec. This is the new baseline ability that replaces slice and dice as it is now a talent. Slice and dice is a reliable talent in terms of you know what your going to have 100% of the fight and that is 100% attack speed buff 100% uptime on the fight. On the other hand we now have an RNG base line spell that we need to try and work around to gain maximum DPS output. This spell will either be really good to you or really bad. it really is a game of luck on the term it will give you insane damage buffs for 46 seconds or it will give you really bad buffs such as a heal. Note that when it does not play in your favour you do not have slice and dice up. When things go bad and it gives only a heal buff it's like playing without slice dice active and is a major dps drop. Roll the Bones 25 Energy / 1 Energy 100 yd range Instant Requires Rogue (Outlaw) Requires level 100 Finishing move that rolls the dice of fate, providing a random combat enhancement. Lasts longer per combo point: 1 point : 12 seconds 2 points: 18 seconds 3 points: 24 seconds 4 points: 30 seconds 5 points: 36 seconds Roll the bones buffs Jolly Roger: Has a 25% chance to for saberslash to strike twice Grand Melee: Increases auto attack speed for 50%+25% Leech Shark Infested Waters: Increases the critical strike chance for 25% True Bearing: Reduces the cooldown of your abilities 3 seconds per combo point spent (see below) Buried Treasure: Your base energy regeneration is increased by 25% Broadsides: Your combo point builders generate 1 additional combo point Note: Spells affected by true bearing Adrenaline Rush Sprint Between the eyes Vanish Blind Cloak of shadows Riposte Grappling Hook Cannonball Barrage Killing spree, Marked for Death Death from aboveAneuryzm58 28 Oct

Item Level 904 AP level 43 I just get one shoted by warriors and slowed all the time. Stealth is bugged [Dense Concoction] 24% Dmg reduced What a joke... unbuffed AGI 31,624 in PVP 17k LULZ... PVP rogue have never been this bad as it is now, for Battle Grounds, a DPS warrior had 6.9 Mil HP and do the same dps as 2 people There is no reason to take you Rogue into BG and i am not talking about arena for i dont pvp in arenas, so i cant talk for arenas peace out ..Quickstain14 2h

7h I no longer want to play rogue OK so let me start I'm not some pro no life freak that raid 5 times a week. I'm a casual player. Played outlaw rogue since legion release. Recently i decided to lvl up demon hunter for fun and holy F what a difference it is. My DH is 850 but I'll do same DPS as my 895 rogue without even trying. I realized how bad and unimaginative outlaw design is. Whole lvl 60 and 75 talent's are garbage. Cheat death ? haha what a joke most of the time this crap wont save your life anyway.. But lvl 100 talent's are complete joke ! Marked for death ? really ? that crap should be baseline ability . Death from above ? LUL what a joke and ofc don't forget ''slice and never use''. Not to mention that most of the time you energy starver. Damn what a class. After investing so much time into this toon I'm just pissed of how !@#$ty it is...Rickmorn5 7h
11h Getting seriously inconsistent DPS on dummy I am struggling to gauge what items to wear because Sims aren't accurate. My higher ilvl gear: My lower ilvl set gear: According to Mr Robot, my lower ilvl set gear should produce more DPS due to the set bonus. Checking for myself after 1 hour of constant dummy bashing, repeating the same rotation, I still can't tell which set is better because I have huge dps fluctuations, from 550k all the way up to 700k; with both item variations. I've done 10 rounds each now and the average for both is about 640k. If there is a difference, it's extremely marginal. What to do?Verunic0 11h
15h Vanish Broken? What on earth happened to vanish after the latest hotfixes? I get stunned after vanish, hunter pets attack after vanish, DKs frost slow me after vanish and so on. The 3 sec immunity after vanish seems to not work as intended now and it really sucks in PvP. Anyone else noticed this?Barcode2 15h
15h Outlaw hidden artifact appearance farming (stealthrun) Looking for peeps to join me with farming the binding in Neltharion's lair and VoW. Nelths lair can be done on normal mode in 5min stealthruns in a group of 4-5 rogues (see VoW can also be done in a similar amount of time by 4-5 rogues. Get in touch if you're interested - no particular time in mind yet.Madeyoulook1 15h

1d Struggling rogue Hi, I started playing WoW in Jan, and recently created a rogue. I wanted to ask a couple of questions (I'll keep it brief): 1. for a fairly casual player, what are the pros and cons of the specs? I've mostly played subtlety, but find I regularly am awaiting CDs or pooling energy (which is probably my fault somehow). 2. Lockpicking? I tried googling some info on levelling this, and because of the (seemingly many) changes over the years, I've been struggling to find out how to go about levelling it (do you even still need to level lockpicking? or does it just increase in skill?) ... also, are there any good places for farming things to lockpick? Any advice anyone can provide would be massively appreciated.Shankah0 1d
1d Swordmaster vs Quick Draw Hi what u prefer or think its better to choose? i saw many TOP rogues above 905 ilvls to choose swordmaster you think its worth it? or go with quick draw? thanksBodybuilder7 1d
1d Assassination is still useless in PvP How come that even after Blizzard realised that rogue's got to much of a nerv it still takes them ages to fix assassination, i'm litterally getting killed by any class in PvP. All classes simply laugh when they see a rogue, all my dmg get's halved in PvP its HUGE dmg loss even in Open world PvP i'm getting hammered by any class but only there I stand a chance of killing someone. Jeezus god why is blizzard so blind, any class can kill me easily without CD's and I can't even kill a class with all my CD's up ... Godsake its really getting ridiculous, paladin's / warriors / DH's / Mages they all kill me in less then 4secs before they stun run off ... how is this fair when we can't even scratch a class ...Ayurox2 1d
1d Outlaw Help needed So I have recently capped this rogue, around 3 days ago and I have decided to go outlaw, as I have always played assasination. But I have been running into a few problems. I have tried the recommended build from Icy Veins which is, Ghostly Strike, Grappling Hook, Deeper Stratagem, Cheat Death, Dirty Tricks, Alacrity and Marked for Death. I personally find this build does not seem to do much dps for me. So I instead decided to try something different and came to use this build I randomly made which is. Swordmaster, Grappling Hook, Vigor, Cheat Death, Dirty Tricks, Alacrity, Death from Above. I am ilvl 890 and with the build I am running I can do around 420k dps. And with the build from Icy Veins I do around 385k dps. I only have one legendary, and its bad, its Will of Valeera. I still feel like 420k dps single target is a bit low at ilvl 890. Could anyone test the build im using verse there build or the recommended? Would be nice if anyone can give any tips on how to improve my dps.Cubéd2 1d
1d Help with mythic + Whenever I ask to get invited into one, I just get denied pretty quick, or sometimes I get invited and then kicked asap. Im not going for high mythics, just +2 or +3, and im ilvl is 877, so I have no idea what to do anymore. Any ideas? is it because Im assassination or what?Jalice1 1d
1d Need help for playing Slice and Dice Hey guys! I am back to WoW and the Outlaw is a new thing for me; endured playing it for a month or so but it is just... bad with this RtB thingy. Trying SnD but cant get comparable damage to other melees in raids i was so far. Tried building crit and vers, but for SnD its kinda bad. Stacking haste seems bad idea even before i try it unless i have some super awesome RPPM trinket and i dont have. I went geting near 100% mastery and that seems the best thing so far, but its still bad. Any tips on what to do about it, how to gear or anything useful will be greatly appreciated. (using killing spree only for world questing that is why i have it as a talent; just saying) I loved playing Combat rogue and i do not want to replace it with other class/spec so if that will be your advice please do not post it.Shaddak10 1d
1d Why the assassin he need healer to play arena? When we start to play (Instance pvp)whit assassin Rogue?why Crimson Vial is have 15 % heal in pvp and out and sub have 30% .why humiliate the players ?Why do you hate us? So you get us in the game to have fun?Fix the assassin Spec !!! 1d
1d Tess Greymane Two questions about the new Alliance rogue follower: 1. Did we ever get a reason for why she is part of the Uncrowned? I thought we'd get the answer when we got to recruit her, but I think I either missed it or it wasn't there. What's up with that? 2. Why does she ride a ratstallion and a nether ray of all things? These feel like a strange fit for the princess of Gilneas - even if she is a rogue. The nether ray is particularly strange to me. Why would she ride that? Has she ever even been to Outland? I think perhaps a horse and a gryphon would suit her better.Clayton2 1d
1d Assassination Relic Choice Hi guys, Im a Assa Rogue 901 and have the 4set bonus Now i play with a Iron relic 890 Toxic Blades. (Increase damage dealt by envenom by 10% But today there just dropped a 915 Fade into shadows relic. (Reduces the cooldown of Cloak of Shadows by 10sec) The stats of the Toxic Blades is better, speccialy for the 4 set bonus. But can i better take the 915 relic? because of the difference between ilvl? I dont know if thats also pushing other stats. Thanks :)Dutchquip3 1d
1d Macro advise needed! I recently started playing Outlaw rogue, and I use the killing spree tallent. People told me that if you use it with Blade flurry it becomes better. Well it does feel a lot stronger jumping around a pack of mobs and then finishing them of with Death From Above. But I digress. I made this macro #showtooltip Killing Spree /cast Blade Flurry /cast Killing Spree /cast Blade Flurry When I press it, it instantly activates blade flurry and KS making me go from ST to jumping around mobs. And when it ends i can press it again to remove the 20% energy regen, or leave it on unill the pack is cleared. I use this macro to initiatie in aoe combat. (Note that it still toggles Blade flurry if KS is on cooldown) I wonder if this is a known macro, or that I should be using it at all.Jorìs0 1d
2d What is the point in creeping venom? Other than keeping rogues from restealthing (Its ironically affective vs us) It ticks 6k. LITERALLY 6K. People have 7million hp in bgs, our dots are already so fking weak its unreal but when you see creeping venom continuously proc on players who remain at 100% throughout a 30 min duration. What is the point?! Like when they designed it was was it their idea for it to actually do nothing at all. Im honestly getting so fking sick of this !@#$ its unrealSethroguen0 2d
2d I want to be a Zandalari Outlaw; So I've started a Rogue, hit talents and am wondering; How is Outlaw for leveling? I'm a rogue I know I'll never get the same leveling speed as a Tank who can just dungeon grind to 100 in a couple week so I'm going to try get levels as fast as I can the old fashioned way by stabbing stuff till it's dead.Nosdydd3 2d
2d Sub rogue pvp - Deeper Strat? Hey I was wondering if some sub rogues with 42+ traits gave DS a try in pvp? Since the two last traits kinda give a boost to energy regen, I thought it may be worth it now. The big reason why I like to use Vigor is because I don't feel energy starved if I have to use Feint, but I really wish DS was the best talent for bigger finisher and mainly because I feel like it makes our only real cd Shadow Blades not feel like a waste (basically when using Blades with vigor, unless you're lucky with a 2cp proc of shadow technique you'll probably use two SS to get your 5cp anyway. Or maybe 4cp evi are worth it but it doesn't feel right). So, did anyone with the new traits try it?Balleck10 2d
3d Outlaw rogue & RtB Hi, I used to love playing my outlaw rogue.m but when I got to raiding I hated having good bursts then nothing because of roll the bones, I haven't played the rogue in ages and would like to pick it up again but is roll the bones still the same?? I also really like sin so should I just change spec?? Thanks allRovoler5 3d
3d Pros and cons of each spec (PVP) Hey guys, I'm trying to decide which spec to go (I want to play pvp). Before you say "just play what you like", I like the fantasy of the 3 specs (Yeah, I decided to play rogue based on the fantasy of a sneaky assassin). I want to choose only one spec because I can't invest so much time in farming ap for two specs, I already have a mage and I don't want to make a farming simulator out of wow. Could you tell me some pros and cons of the spec you play? Or of all of them if you play them. I feel like outlaw is underperforming when compared to the other two specs. I like how assassination's dmg feels like and how in demand it is with Vendetta. But I also feel like I get absolutely destroyed by warriors/DH's/insert any melee but enhancement. Subtlety looks really interesting, but I guess you need to be very skilled to perform correctly, damn all of those jumps around cc'ing the whole world. Anyway, I'd appreciate if you take the time to answerGáuss0 3d
3d 7.2.5 upcoming Assassination updates So, we know devs intend to remove Agonizing Poison and replace it with something else, probably an aoe ability. I also don't like how it works and how hard it makes target switching and ruins ongoing rotation when expires on targets, but most of assassination rogues are using this build and fed up with mastery. This provides us like %40 to %45 flat damage increase on target without Surge of Toxins. Mastery probably won't work well with Deadly Poison. Deadly Poision damage is not covering up that %40 - 45 flat damage increase. Stat weights will surely change after removal. I don't have versa / crit gear backup in my backpack. What do you guys think ? Will they provide a flat damage upgrade to most of our abilities after removal ? Will they change Deadly Poison / any other base abilities in a way that they'll work with mastery ?Mavien13 3d
3d Outlaw hidden appearance is an absolute joke. Why is it that we have a hidden appearance based entirely on whether we're particularly lucky or not? I work just as hard as the next person to get stuff like this but get punished because the stars never blooming align for me. We also have to use tricks and in some cases, exploits to even have a reasonable chance at it. Do you actually think it's acceptable to make players run hundreds of dungeons (trust me i've already done it) over and over to get one blooming item? It is not worth the 20+ hours i've spent grinding and grinding. We want something that is difficult and Rogue-Like not some grind-fest BS because you cannot be arsed to be inventive about hidden appearances. I'm not even going to start on hunter appearances but in comparison that is an absolute insult... I'm 108 runs into doing Neltherions Lair and still have not received the item.. If it was intentional for Rogues to have to run the entire instance for this then i would like that clarified as i think that is blatantly unfair. Respond please blizzard as i will be starting a petition to get this rectified.. A LOT of people are wasting hours of their time grinding this with no luck at all, we could be playing other characters or improving our current one, but with the system in place we are having to spend ridiculous amounts of hours killing the same boss over and over. Fyi to whoever starts with the "vanilla was harder bs" the world is a different place than it was 10-12 years ago, we do not have the time required to play obscenely grindy games anymore, and if you do then you have WAY too much time on your hands..Thcbrah45 3d

5d Undiagnosed DPS problems I changed to assassination after a break from WoW for a month or so. I have only been playing since September. I Levelled fine as outlaw from 100-110 and straight up to around item level 825 or so. After changing to assassination I noticed a high DPS bump, but as I've increased in level my damage isn't scaling as well as the other classes of the same level. I believe my gear is decent and my stats are correct, so I cannot work out how/why my DPS on certain fights is so bad (300k single target) apart from my rotation being off. I have read, watched and tested rotations from guides and can now spit out 500k-700k at the start of a fight on a test dummy, but this quickly drops off into 300-400k after the first DPS burst (Vanish + Vendetta combo) If anyone can help me out that would be awesome, I really wanna master this spec/class and be actual use to my guild on anything over normal mode raiding. Thanks.Bättletoad4 5d
5d Rupture damage - what its based on? Hello guys, I have two fight on Triliax, where the envenom and rupture outputs are quite different. For some reason the Envenom crit on the second fight was only 23%, so let's leave this aside for a moment, but the rupture damage output of the two fights is also quite different and I don't seem to understand why is that. Here are the two logs with my rupture damage. Fight 1: Fight 2: I ran the two fights with the same talents, same legendaries and same trinkets. There were some changes on my other gear, but on the second fight I think I had much better gear(around 2000 more agility, mastery and crit are also more, versatility is a bit lower(from 4% down to 2%). Another small change in relics - on first fight I had the rupture one(so 3% more dps on rupture), whereas on the second its a 20 item levels higher AP one. Also my garotte traits are all up on the second fight. Additionally the first fight we used two buffs, but still I think the rupture damage on my second fight is unreasonably lower. If you take a look at the other abilities, they all did more dps on the second fight, but for some strange reason only rupture and envenoms are both 10mils less, which I can't figure out how its even possible. Can someone more experienced with reading logs help me out with this mystery?Rohnja2 5d

5d Premeditation -I think they have to delete Premeditation talent and give back 2cp generate by Shadowsrike (like Ambush had). -Premeditation is too good talent... no-one will pick other talent in that row, even next patch (in row with DfA and MfD) - or buff MfD (for example 30sec cd) - i feel like there is no point to pick other talents... they just totaly f*cked up Shadow dance + Ambush mechanics now if you haven't Premeditation you spend so much time and energy to build 5cp. -and why the hell DfA as damage spell is in row with ultility spell/passive... -problem with Talents... you have to choose between 3x dmg spells/passive OR 3x ultility s./p.. NOT like it is now... 2x ultility and 1x dmg spell... like wtf.... maybe i'm wrong but for me it's bad to choose between dmg spell and ultility.Danijela0 5d

6d 7.2.5 PTR Patch Notes THIS IS EARLY PTR, NOT FINAL RELEASE NOTES. THESE WILL LIKELY CHANGE BEFORE IT GOES LIVE. Assassination Exsanguinate now causes your Bleed effects to bleed out 125% (was 100%) faster. Exsanguinate now costs 20 Energy. Outlaw Developers’ notes: Our overall goals here include smoothing out Energy regeneration and reducing the frequency of both resource drought and Energy capping. Adrenaline Rush Energy regeneration increase reduced to 50% (was 100%). Duration increased to 20 seconds (was 15 seconds). Combat Potency proc rate increased to 30% (was 20%), and Energy per proc reduced to 10 (was 15). Fortune Strikes redesigned. Now increases Combat Potency’s proc rate by 2% per point (was +1 Energy per Combat Potency proc per point). Developers’ notes: The net result of the two Combat Potency and Fortune Strikes changes is that Combat Potency should generate half as much Energy, twice as often. Restless Blades has returned. Finishing moves reduce the remaining cooldown on Adrenaline Rush, Between the Eyes, Sprint, Grappling Hook, Cannonball Barrage, Killing Spree, Marked for Death, Death from Above, Vanish by 0.5 seconds per combo point spent. Roll the Bones Developers’ notes: The distribution of the number of buffs you get from Roll the Bones has changed. On average, you will get fewer buffs. Our goal is to significantly reduce the desire to frequently recast Roll the Bones when you get 1 buff. Broadsides now also increases the damage of your combo-point generating abilities by 20%. Buried Treasure increases Energy regeneration by 30% (was 25%). Shark Infested Waters now increases Critical strike chance by 20% (was 25%). True Bearing causes Finishing moves to reduce the cooldown of many abilities by 1.0 seconds (was 2.0 seconds) per combo point. Slice and Dice’s Attack speed increase reduced to 80%. Slice and Dice increases Energy regeneration by 20% (was 15%). Subtlety Developers’ notes:Our overall goals are to remove uncontrolled player teleport from the baseline DPS rotation, to reduce the frequency of teleporting in PvP, to allow players to choose between more frequent or more impactful Shadow Dances, which equates to more frequent CC/utility or damage in PvP, to keep the PvE rotation engaging, and to make Symbols of Death more engaging. All damage dealt increased by 20%. Shadowstrike now hits at melee range (was a 15 yard range). Shadowstrike, when used out of combat, now deals 30% increased damage and teleports you up to 25 yards behind your target. Shadowstep now has 2 charges for Subtlety. Backstab base damage increased by 35%. Backstab damage bonus from being behind the target reduced to 20% (was 30%). The Quiet Knife (Artifact trait) now increases damage dealt by Backstab by 5% (was 3%) per point. Shadow Dance now has 2 charges (was 3). Shadow Dance is no longer on the global cooldown. Shadow Dance’s base duration increased to 4 seconds (was 3 seconds). Subterfuge’s duration increase to Shadow Dance reduced to 1 second (was 2 seconds). Deepening Shadows now causes your finishing moves to reduce the remaining cooldown on Shadow Dance by 1.5 seconds (was 3 seconds) per combo point spent. Enveloping Shadows redesigned. Deepening Shadows reduces the remaining cooldown of Shadow Dance by an additional 1.5 second per combo point spent. Shadow Dance gains 1 additional charge. Deep Shadows now causes all damage you deal to be increased by 35%. Master of Shadows moved to level 90 row. Premeditation moved to level 100 row. Marked for Death’s cooldown reduced to 40 seconds (was 60 seconds) for Subtlety. Developers’ notes: This is to balance it against Premeditation, which is now on the same row. It’s a buff in a raid setting, where the talent was very weak. Symbols of Death redesigned. Costs 25 Energy and has a 30 second cooldown. Invoke ancient symbols of power, empowering the next cast of several of your abilities: Shadowstrike: Generates 2 additional combo points. Nightblade: Deals 30% increased damage. Eviscerate: Critical strike chance increased by 35%. Focus Shurikens is a new passive talent available at level 70: Each enemy you hit with Shuriken Storm increases the damage of your next Eviscerate by 25%, stacking up to 5 times. Developers’ notes: This aims to remove maintaining Nightblade on every target from your AOE rotation on 4+ targets. Instead, Subtlety will deal increased damage during AOE by focusing it into one target.Vaelrea28 6d
