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. Reporting You can 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

17 Aug 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.Mawerrick177 17 Aug
06 Feb [Guide] Tumna's and Notter 7.2.5 Assassination Guide Hey guys, Tumna and I have been working on an updated Sin guide in the last few days We aim for it to answer as many questions as possible concerning Assassination so Here's our guide: Don't be shy to contact us with any questions!Notterr3 06 Feb
8h Rogue RBG Guides/Tips Hello my rogue friends :) I played rogue alot at Cata times and was on 2k rating in RBG (I know for some people this is not high, but for me it is :) ) Now I started to play again, but everything changed and I also forgot alot of the combos etc. I haven't found any good guides for sub rogue in RBG on the internet, now the question: Does someone of you have a good guide for sub rogue in RBG? Or general rogue in RBG about what you are responsible for, what you have to do in certain situations, good combos in battle etc. I just played a few games and failed pretty much and got flamed :( Thanks and regards, BâdabuumBâdabuum1 8h
8h Why is Sub so much better than sin in PvP? When Assassination Rogues try to kill my Resto Druid in BGs i feel no pressure at all. I can simply outheal their dmg just with HoTs, don't even need to shapeshift into bear most of the time. But when Sub is on me, i need to heal like crazy, run away, bear, frenzied regeneration x 2 times, use all my cds to keep myself alive. So i was wondering why such a huge difference between these two specs? While first one is doing less single target dmg then Fire Mage another one is a living beast + i can't run away from him: he has so many gap closers :D Have no idea about Outlaw, they are rarity. So it seems that sub can do like 300% more dmg (both burst and sustain) while also having way better mobility. I don't get it. I have only in mind casual PVP, so maybe assassins are better in Arenas? Cause they really sucks in BGs from my Resto point of view. I am asking this because i am leveling assassin rogue at the moment but if the spec stays that weak in PvP i might reconsider myself and respec to Sub ... Sorry for English ...Onu7 8h
15h Rotation and Cooldowns question I did my first raid on my rogue yesterday and it went pretty well. Got over 50th percentile on some fights, which I know isn't that good but i've done alot worse when raiding with a class for the first time. I popped the logs into WowAnalyzer and it gave me some useful tips. However it did tell me that I should be using my toxic blade and kingsbane a bit more. I've usually saved them to combo with eachother or a vendetta if its soon of CD. I did this mainly because another rogue I talked to told me to do so. Is this correct gameplay or should I just pop them on CD?Drautismo1 15h

2d Sub/Assa Hey guys, I've taken a break from the game and decided now to return. How is sub respectively assa doing right now in both PvE and PvP? I liked both specs before my break but would like to focus on one of them now. Which one would you suggest? Sincerely,Dadruy4 2d

2d Energy starved? So I started playing again and decided to switch from my monk and lvl up my rogue. Only problem I have is that I feel energy starved alot. Is this just a gear issue or is the class generally energy starved?Drautismo5 2d
2d Best Horde Race for Rogue I'm thinking of making a rogue for the first time and I wanna go Horde. I don't know which race to pick. I'm probably gonna do a bit of both PvE and PvP, but more PvE, and really more solo & exploring. Which class do you suggest? Preferrably, I'd like to make an undead or a goblin, but all suggestions appreciated & accepted.Tinyhavoc20 2d
2d Rogue guides for PVP Greetings. I was wondering if anyone would recommend any good rogue guides (not interested in skill capped)? Currently i'm Assassination rogue...wondering if i should keep this spec or go Sub. I recently jumped into PvP and i'm having so much fun but i always wonder if what i am doing is right or wrong and what i could do to improve.Dicer3 2d

3d Rogue AoE Hello all, i was wondering how you all handle AoE in open word content. Killing mutliple mobs. I have tried playing rogue and their AoE seems to be lacking allot or simply rather weak compared to a ww monk.Azzeriax4 3d
4d Mage tower: Subtlety challenge. Help please! Hi, I'm no good at sub spec, but I'm determined to get the last challenge appearance on my rogue (even if it looks crap). Problem is, I suck at sub spec. I can muddle through the first phase no problem, but I hit a wall when the adds spawn in phase 2. I'm not very familiar with the spec, so quickly rooting and bursting them down seems to be impossible for me. Applying nightblade while juggling shadowdance seems to be beyond me; I'm all thumbs when it comes to this bit. Has anyone got any basic tips for this part? Thanks.Zuruzan2 4d
4d Assassination / Poison bomb this is currently a really strong attack...when it decides to proc. I've found many times that when there are 5+ adds you dot everything...things die then you get a poison bomb proc when there is one left... I think that seeing this as an actual ability to use on cool down, kind of like a dk death & decay would be awesome. its such a strong ability and its so satisfying seeing how much damage it does when you do get that proc when those 5+ adds are up. What do you guys think?Dayvurd3 4d

11 Apr Lost: Gleaming Lamp of Al'Abas If found, please return to Twiddler on Azuremyst-EU. :) For the last couple of months I've not pickpocketed a single coin of air. My wife is very knowledgable about such matters and she said I need to have this item in my bag to find any. After a good search through all my bags, there were no lamps. Maybe I sold it by mistake. Who knows. Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to buy a new one or find any information from anybody else with the same problem. I can't find a way to open a ticket and the item doesn't show in the 'item restoration' self-service as I may have lost the wretched thing too long ago for it to still show there. Anyone have any suggestions please?Twiddler1 11 Apr
09 Apr Mutilate + Retribution 2x2 Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen! I used Google and the forum, but I did not find similar topics. How would you evaluate the prospects of this setup on a scale from "doomed to failure" to "there is a place to be"? I understand that in addition to knowledge of our classes, need to have direct hands and a keen eye, and very much depends on the opponents. But if you estimate the average results... At the time of writing, I have not tried such a setup, I'm planning to capture the galaxy after a day's work. Give a few tips to PvE-player with claws? :) P.S. Interested in playing two DDs. p.p.s. sorry for my English :)Джорт6 09 Apr

05 Apr Really annoying Stealth related bugs in PvP Hello everyone, I've somewhat recently leveled my Rogue here and have noticed a couple of really frustrating bugs that seem to only happen in PvP. Both in PvP World Quest areas as well as instanced PvP. The first bug happens ALL THE TIME. Almost every single time in fact. This is when you end combat with an enemy and it takes you upwards of 15 seconds to drop combat to re-stealth or mount up. Been playing a lot of random battlegrounds the past couple of days with my fiancée, she plays a Hunter. Whenever we kill the same target, she's already on her mount and riding across the map and I'm there just jumping around waiting for combat to drop so I can actually do something. The most recent instance of this for me was in a WSG we just played. I was at the Alliance tunnel entrance fighting some Mages with my team. Now, I wanted to re-stealth because they had a healer behind the Mages and wanted to go whack that Druid. So what happened is that I started to back off after my last Shuriken Toss and backed up all the way behind my whole team. I didn't get a single cast on me after that Shuriken Toss, and I didn't have any HoTs or DoTs rolling on me. I get behind my team and jump around, waiting, and waiting, and waiting.. I recorded this with Shadowplay and looked at the time it took for me to drop combat, it was 19 seconds after my last Shuriken Toss hit the enemy, which was my last sign of any combat. I know it's supposed to be possible to drop combat within a Blind as a Rogue, so you can Blind and wait for re-stealth. Blind lasts 8 seconds in PvP, and during that you're supposed to be out of combat. So why does it take me 19 seconds instead of 8? This 19 seconds is still relatively short compared to some of the instances this bug has happened to me. I've been in combat over half a minute sometimes before I force myself in to stealth with Vanish. I've had fights which are close calls for me, but I use Vanish to get the last Shadowstrikes in to get the kill, and then with Thief's Bargain I've already gotten Vanish some seconds off of cooldown before I end up using it just so I can stealth. This is EXTREMELY annoying and very limiting towards my gameplay since as a Subtlety Rogue I kind of do need to be able to stealth, and mounting is fairly important too in Battlegrounds. I've ended up having to waste Sprint and Shadowstep cooldowns time and time again just so I can reach places faster because can't mount up. For reference, my talents are 1232211 and Honor talents are 121122 (Though this has happened before I even unlocked any Honor talents, so likely not related to them) Then the second bug happens more rarely, but somewhat regularly still. I haven't got a clue why this happens, but sometimes my stealth just randomly drops. My most recent one happened yesterday on Deepwind Gorge. The middle mine was controlled by the Alliance and I was sitting there waiting to see if I could perhaps sneak the cap. I was opening and closing my map multiple times to look at the situation. On the last time I opened my map in this current example, I simultaneously unstealthed. I ended up getting DK gripped and killed due to this. Similarly to the first bug example, I recorded this case with Shadowplay and I went through the clip a few times to see if there was something that caused me to drop from Stealth. I didn't take any damage, I didn't get hit by any kind of a spell and I didn't hit any of my keybinds by accident either. The stealth just decided to not work anymore. The second bug isn't that big of a deal most of the time. It's a bit annoying that I sometimes randomly die because of it but it's maybe once every 5-10 Battlegrounds that it happens. But the first bug there is REALLY annoying because it severely hinders me as a Rogue. I'm constantly being screwed over by it :(Babycakes30 05 Apr
04 Apr Fix Me Hi guys, I've been out of the game for a few years. I was hoping for some advice on .... well everything. I have so many questions, I hope you don't mind. IcyVeins says I don't need pvp gear! WTH?? My rotation is about the same as it always was, with Vendetta, TB,and KB it does work.... but my dmg is terrible. I mean lower than healers in some bgs. Stat prio: is this a thing anymore? Set bonuses: are they active in pvp? I've powered up my weapon to max+18 I think and I still do terrible dmg. What am I doing wrong? I am missing something fundamental about this class now and it's just eating my brain trying to figure it out. I see other rogues utterly destroy opponents in seconds, while it takes me at least 30 secs to get a kill, while I know this isn't a "fix me" thread. I would not reject any advice given at this point. I was getting advice from a rogue outside SW and he destroyed me in 7 secs and left.Eirohir14 04 Apr
04 Apr (A) Defias guild rogues only Dear masters of the shadows, I am looking for rogues to join my new setup Guild. Focus: World PvP and PvP in general. All levels are allowed in. Most rogues are Lone wolves, now you can have a family of like minded people. Gank the Horde, corpse camp them, the lower their level the longer the corpse camp. Rules? We don't have any rules. Lone wolves don't need rules. Let's Lone wolf together. A pact of lone wolves combined, assassinate high priority targets due to a death list that gets updated every day. Simple: add a horde name to the guild notes and you are certain that this scum will get killed. Currently working on an addon where you can write down the names of scum you want as kill target. The addon will simply check the name when you target the person and gives you a signal if it's on the rogues Der Untergang guilds kill list. Like this idea? Drop down a comment or whisper me ingame. Let's rek them all. Destroy the Horde. Annoy them, disrupt their leveling, disrupt their questing. Disrupt their raiding while they are running towards Argus or any other dungeon. FOR THE ALLIANCE!Rektolele4 04 Apr

03 Apr Rogue tier 21 Mythic No Boots I'm starting this discussion to express my total disgust of Blizzards laziness. Not adding mythic recolor shoes to the wonderful tier 21 rogue set. Normal boots drop from Invasion points, PvP ones also exist but don't match the color scheme. There is a model for the shoes but Blizzard was too lazy to make the Mythic 21 recolor. Rage comments are welcome. Blizz needs to see this thread and add the boots to the game.Baelshar5 03 Apr
03 Apr Vanilla Rogue Video Hello. I am searching for the first PvP video I ever saw, which was made by a rogue. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the character, nor the name of the video. Here is what I remember: 1. The video started with the male Night Elf Rogue sitting right in front of the Ironforge main gate. You could see the dwarf statue as well. The rogue was wearing a Shadowcraft Helm as well. 2. The music in the beginning was Green day Boulevard of Broken Dreams. 3. His spec was one of the 4, or showed 2 of the following 4: 30/0/21, 31/0/20, 20/0/31, 21/0/30. 4. He was also PvPing in Orgrimmar, inside the old bank building, and some other towers within Orgrimmar. Please help, im really nostalgic.Inc5 03 Apr
31 Mar Roll the Bones into just Grand Melee Hi there, I've been rerolling RtB whenever I roll just Grand Melee, as Icy Veins has been telling me. On I found the following: -Reroll Roll the Bones when Loaded Dice is up if you have fewer than 2 buffs or fewer than 4 buffs with no True Bearing. -Refresh Roll the Bones with 3 seconds left for pandemic effect. Guessing here that Icy Veins is wrong and Ravenholdt is correct, is that true?Archigós0 31 Mar

30 Mar New Rogue, new spec. Some Questions. So this is the rogue I'm currently playing with. I boosted him a few days ago and started gearing up in assa spec for (always played combat rogue in past expansions) while doing some PvP on the side, and so far had a decent experience. My goal is to have decent gear (940+) so I can be decent in BG's. (915 atm) - to me it seems assa is relatively CD dependant, in both pve and pve. I do the most dps with my opener where I blow through all my CD's while also applying every bleed and poision effect I have. I'm using the opener rotation as stated on Icy Veins and Ravenholdt, slightly modified in PvP. While I can already nuke down another player with this opener, the damage after seems a bit subpar. - In PvE situations I'm struggling to have decent AoE DPS. Is this a spec thing or a playstyle thing? I know that I have to use fan of knives with +3 targets and have to keep applying rupture bleeds on 3 targets but to me it feels clunky to manually switch around to apply a debuff in melee range. When I reach the 3d target where I apply the bleed (3+ combo points) my debuff on the first is gone. Is this correct or is there another way? - Kingsbane should always be followed with Envenom, right? Does this have to allign with the use of Toxic Blade or only when available? Aside from the opener it's hard to make those three work together unless I delay some CD's.Devren5 30 Mar
29 Mar Are my spells correct? Hey all, just wondering what should be doing the most damage for me as an assassination rogue. Currently it is my deadly poison, is this correct or should it be a different spell doing the most damage? Thanks All :)Peanût2 29 Mar
29 Mar Pickpocket + autoloot = ?? So i've tried a few macros to get pickpocket + autoloot together. I've also tried to use autoloot (shift + skill) but no sucsess, sure i can use autoloot all the time i dont mind that at all but the thing is that i dont want to take up all the crap that drops. Since im doing this on a char im lvling i only got 10 slots bags and im not gonna use heirlooms / transfer stuff from other chars so im not lazy or so i just want an "old days" lvling experience.Krobor6 29 Mar

26 Mar Rogue pickpocketing quest not repeatable? Hi ninjaz, After starting legion content - I was pleasantly surprised with the money making quest that we got from Driftah guy for pickpocketing. The thing is, though, after completing the quest 2 times, I get the option to complete the quest for only 50g as reward. So you can imagine, as a fresh rogue, I can only wonder - were those coins of air just a 2 time money boost that we get as a fresh 100 rogue, or is it actually repeatable? Cheerz ;)Сццс2 26 Mar

26 Mar Scrolling combat text for self - Combo points counter G'day fellow rogues, i have come back to the rogue class after many years of absence and have stumbled upon a few issues. the biggest one is my inabillity to keep up with my combo points. i remember playing rogue in vanilla, without addons i might add(on), and having the option of a combo point counter in text. example: <1 combo point> <2 combo point> etc.. etc.. i have tried to switch this option on again, but was unsuccesfull in doing so. basically i have searched through all the interface options switching various things on and off, but nothing seems to enable that specific combat text. so my question is, how do i get the "<x combo point>" counter text back, any help is appreciated.Wud0 26 Mar

25 Mar Need advice! new lvl 110 I need some advice concerning rogues at lvl 110. I want to pvp at a decent level but I also want to do raids and m+. Is this possible with one spec? If so what spec? I've read that assa is pretty good these days but with rogues it's rarely the case that one specc shines in both pvp and pve. Anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance!Shandor4 25 Mar

23 Mar Insignia Every time Why is it that we have to talk to someone in the shops every time in order to access the order hall? Surely by now they would recognise us and we could just click on the secret knockers? Other class's can just click on their teleporters and be there. Just one of the little things that annoys me Rant overDemonaxx6 23 Mar
22 Mar Soloque Arena Skirmish as Assassination I know i am not a good pvp player but i just wonder if that is the standard? Since 2s are far more common (without healers), i will only talk about this. I have really bad winrate with this spec (tho i dont play the others). I don't know what is wrong... my problems: - I can't top dmg - During and after my sap+blind+stun we cant finish the otherone. And even if we do, my teammate or i is nearly dead - I use my defensive cds preemptively to kill a target but often need them for a reset. If i have long bleeds on me its basically over... - The second my defensive cds wears off, im being targeted and killed. I used to love stealthy dot spreader but this really breaks my heart... I can often win duels (about equal i lvl with or without legendaries) but i think rogues are just op in that matter and i want to know what can i do better as an assassin. I am really thinking about to switch to Monk.Celeana2 22 Mar
