Select a gear item level to improve the accuracy and relevancy of this guide.

The following rotation guide was developed through extensive simulations and play testing with the goal of keeping the guide as simple as possible without sacrificing performance. This guide also included AoE rotations and provides details on when to use special talents and cooldowns.

Single Target Rotation

Poison: Use the following poisons on your weapons.

Combo Point Builders: Follow this priority to generate Combo Points.

  1. Dispatch with a target below 35% health or Blindside procs.
  2. Mutilate with a target above 35% health.

Finishing Moves: Follow this priority to spend Combo Points.

  1. Rupture maintained with 5 CP and refreshed with <= 7 sec remaining.
  2. Envenom to dump CP.

The Assassination DPS rotation revolves around maintaining Rupture while building and spending your Combo Points. To build Combo Points, you should use Dispatch when a target is below 35% health or Blindside procs. If Dispatch is not available, then you should use Mutilate to build Combo Points. After this, your top priority for spending Combo Points is to apply and maintain a 5 CP Rupture at all times, but try to only refresh the DoT with <= 7 sec remaining. Finally, dump your excess Combo Points into 5 CP Envenom.

AoE Rotation

AoE Abilities:

When <= 3 targets, simply continue with the single target rotation but apply Rupture on each target. Between 4-5 targets, you should continue to apply Rupture to all targets and switch to Fan of Knives as your Combo Point builder. With 6+ targets, you should abandon the single target rotation and use Fan of Knives to build Combo Points and spend them on 5 CP Crimson Tempest.

Talents

Below is advice on how to use the performance-enhancing talents that were selected in this guide.
