DPS Rotation & Cooldowns for Combat Rogue in PvE | Latest Patch 7.0.3
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
DPS Priority: Execute the following priority for optimal DPS.
- Roll The Bones with >= 5 Combo Points to maintain the random buffs.
- Run Through to dump excess Combo Points.
- Pistol Shot when buffed from Saber Slash.
- Ambush when possible to generate Combo Points.
- Saber Slash to build Combo Points.
The Outlaw Rogue DPS rotation revolves around maintaining the Roll The Bones buffs while dumping your excess Combo Points into Run Through. To build Combo Points, you should use Ambush whenever possible. After this, Saber Slash is your primary Combo Point builder with Pistol Shot used when it is buffed by Saber Slash procs. After building Combo Points, your top priorty is to maintain Roll The Bones buffs via >= 5 Combo Point refreshes. Finally, dump your excess Combo Points into Run Through.
- Blade Flurry to apply damage and help build Combo Points.
At > 1 target activate Blade Flurry, but otherwise continue with the single target priority.
Information on how to incorporate the selected talents from this guide into your rotation is currently being re-worked for 7.0.3. Check back later!
These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.
