Dps pattern/rotation in raids?
Return to board index
Hey guys I was just looking for some advice on what patterns to try to top my dps as a combat sword rogue Ex. (1 cb SnD 5 cb Rapture...)
Well I usually get 3CP then SnD, then 5CP Rupture, then I get 5CP SnD. I just keep RUpture and SnD up. If the mob is bleed immune use Evis instead.
Well lets see.
Start off with a garrote, shiv/ss, 5p rupture
After that shiv/ss and u probably have 1/2 points (if u have Ruthlessness talent) which u throw on SnD. Imp SnD is key to not wasting too much points on it. If u got 2 pieces t4, 1 point should hold for ages
At this point pop up a trinket like Bloodlust Brooch, something that gives u attack power, to increase the sustained dmg from SnD.
I'd suggest u pop Blade Flurry as well, the sooner u use it, the sooner u can use it again and its killer when used with SnD+trinket. Watch your aggro at this point cause it might get a bit high :P
Remainder of the fight, spam SS, shiv if u have to refresh the deadly poisons, at 4/5 points rupture, SS or shiv, and SnD with the 1 or 2 points (Ruthlessness again). Repeat until enemy is dead
Now adrenaline rush. That's really a matter of judgement on where u wanna use it. I dont use it on trash mobs usually in raids. On bosses i'll only ever use it while having a mongoose/trinket proc and activating a trinket at the same time. this will get the most out of adrenaline rush. Dont forget to watch your combo points cause with AR on they can be stacked really easy
Some bosses like Curator, Illhoof have phases which you can deal increased dmg. If you fight on a boss like the save AR and trinkets with long cds for that moment. Furthermore, vanish and open with garrote again. If u use BF in the beggining its cd should be over by now so u can use that too
~ DoTs are your friend. You'll find yourself running around in quite a few bosses. Keeping a bleed and deadly poison on him will keep your dmg comin
~ Watch the aggro meter, dont get too excited. Many rogues tend to forget that, get aggro and die. U have feint and evasion to save u when that happens, vanish as a last resort
~I hope u have somethin fast in offhand, like Latro's sword or somethin between 1.3-1.5. Fast offhand means more Combat potency procs, more extra attacks from SwordSpec, more chance that deadly will be refreshed on its own, saving 35 precious energy. If u dont have one, run BM until u get it, along with the trinket
Omg i said to much. As usual this is a free world,open for debates :)
Lol thanks for the help
I think I've got a few nice patterns to try out now :D
