While certain specs vary in strength depending on what type of gameplay the players is doing, there are roles that they stand out in. For players interested in raiding, World of War crafts flagship Eve mode, Assassination rogue is one of the best choices.
Assassination is the highest single damage melee class in the game right now Poisons and bleeds allow damage to tick away even when the player must move for mechanics such as Wrong’s Reverberating Slam As it is with all rogue specs, Assassination has access to great sustain and survivability options such as Crimson Vial to restore health, Evasion to dodge melee strikes, and the ever-powerful Cloak of Shadows to both avoid taking magical damage and drop harmful effects such as King Rastaban’s Deathly Withering. Rogues in general make up around 8 percent of high level PVP as of 8.1.5 according to World of War graphs, with the highest number being Assassination.
Assassination in PVP shares many of the benefits as they do in raiding, but also bring unique utility for dealing with other players. Shadow step allows a player teleport behind an opponent and Sprint lets them escape should the fight turn south.
Assassination has unparalleled crowd control, with over three options to stun enemies and interrupt spell casting. With trash being just as much of a threat as bosses, Mythic Plus added the need to get though dungeons in a limited time.
Because of this different skill are needed than traditional raiding and this lets Outlaw break Assassination’s total dominance for the best rogue spec. This allows them to excel in dealing damage to multiple enemies, which Mythic Plus is chock-full of.
Rogues have access to Shroud of Concealment, allowing the entire Mythic Plus group to skip partially challenging or excessive trash. It has neither the AOE that makes Outlaw dominant in mythic plus or the consistent damage that lets Assassination be so strong in PVP and Raiding.
Subtlety offers both options for AOE and single target damage, though fails to excel in either. A child of the sun, being raised in California, Sara loves all kinds of storytelling with a soft spot for video games in particular.
If you plan on pushing keys then I’d go engineering for the combat red. Can aid in messy pulls through blind and combat red.
Maybe wow is the only “pay for service” game they can afford. Herbalism and alchemy is still a great combination for self-reliance and making gold.
Even putting aside the potential gold-making aspect of professions, they still have valuable in-game usage, as you pointed out in your earlier post. BS: stirrups if anything increase efficiency when gathering and questing.
Do they add convenience and gold making opportunities? Tailors can use Spell threads, which enchants their own cloaks with effects such as lowering fall damage or prevent dazing.
Not as useful with flying enabled but start of shadow lands they will be sought after again. Not as useful with flying enabled but start of shadow lands they will be sought after again.
Her:Agreed, and super cheap on the AH too. These are so much fun to use, the engineering cloak enchant is handy that way.
