any rogue players wanna recommend me a good spec?
I myself am running sub pve with combat off-spec for aoe situations.
Conclusion: All specs are good. Pick the one you like most and learn it well.
What I've found is: after Subtlety, EVERYTHING is boring and mindless...
Assassination: dynamic rotation, you react to what procs you get to know which button to push next. However, you don't really press a button that often. Your main attack costs 55 energy after all and you don't have that much haste, venomous wounds procs are random and random will be a !@#$% sometimes.
Combat: boring boring rotation, you press the same buttons in the same order every cycle, but hey, your main attack is like 32 energy and you have high haste and off-hand energy procs. Gogo gadget spam! You have a lot to do here, but it's always the same damn thing.
Subtlety: dynamic rotation, cheap CP attacks, high haste, lots of timers to watch, lots of different buttons. You have a lot to do and it's always different.
Sub basically combines the fun elements of the first two with complexity and unforgiving nature being the downsides.
I'm probably going to switch my offspec back to Combat simply because I can no longer stand the slow-paced button presses of Assassination.
I suppose you're correct, you know which button you'll be pressing next because the timers are fixed. By dynamic I mean that you have a varied order in which you cycle through your finisher due to their different durations. :)
Here's hoping MoP doesn't turn it all into the over-simplified boredom that suspect it will!
23/04/2012 13:00Posted by Jasekwell thanks for the feedback,so for main spec i will go sub and offspec well...i will give assassination a try,but if i won't like it then only sub for me :)
Just remember that if you go assa as OS, you really have to reforge your gear. Playing assa with sub reforges.. urgh.
Now 28K as combat is already bad, but that's purely because I never really practiced it and was just messing around, user error all the way. However, I've played Assassination for months this xpac so I had no major L2P issues, just a bit of rust. The 24K as Assassination was 90% gear related and unless you keep 2 full sets of gear reforged and gemmed and enchanted, one of your specs will suffer massively for it.
If you don't want an already slightly-less DPS spec do very very bad, you either really go for Assassination or you ignore it completely.
i find assa or combat the way to go for a lvler, simply because you dont have to be behind the target, which you mostly need as a sub
