Note: This page is not yet updated for the latest patch of 10.0.5 in WoW Dragonflight.
Shadowlands brought back poisons for all rogue specializations. Use Deadly Poison (Lethal) and Crippling Poison (Non-Lethal.)
As a rogue, you'll be building then spending combo points while utilizing cooldowns as they come available.
Building Combo Points
- Shadowstrike (if available)
- Gloomblade (if talented) or Backstab
If fighting multiple targets, prioritize Shuriken Storm over Shadowstrike
Spending Combo Points
Be sure to spend combo points when at 4 or more using the following priority:
- Slice and Dice (Maintain)
- Rupture (Maintain)
- (if have talent) Secret Technique (On CD)
If you talented for Deeper Stratagem than you can spend combo points at 5+ instead.
If fighting multiple targets, you can prioritize applying Rupture on additional targets (ones that will survive the full duration) higher than using Eviscerate.
