Rotation & Cooldowns (Patch 5.1)

Maintaining a proper Rotation and using the right Cooldowns is essential to maximizing your Assassination Rogue. Use this guide to optimize your single target and AoE rotations while learning how to get the most out of your cooldowns.


Single Target Rotation - 5.1

Poison: Use the following poisons on your weapons.
Lethal: Deadly Poison
Non-Lethal: Leeching Poison

Combo Point Builders: Follow this priority to generate Combo Points.
1.Dispatch Target below 35% Health or Blindside procs.
2.Mutilate Target above 35% Health.

Finishing Moves: Follow this priority to spend Combo Points.
1.Slice and Dice Apply once with 2 CP. Refresh with Envenom.
2.Rupture Apply and refresh with 5 CP.
3.Envenom Use with 5 CP.

First, you should start every fight in Stealth and use Ambush + Rupture to get Venomous Wounds up as soon as possible. After this, your priority is to apply and maintain Slice and Dice and Rupture. Never let Slice and Dice or Rupture expire and refresh them with < 5 Combo Points if necessary to prevent them from dropping. From here, follow the Combo Point building priority by casting Mutilate and Dispatch. Use Dispatch when you target is below 35% health or when Blindside procs. Use Mutilate when Dispatch is unavailable. Spend excess Combo Points on Envenom and to refresh Rupture.

Thanks to Anticipation your Combo Point management is much easier. Seal Fate CP procs will almost never to go to waste and you can execute the single target priority without fear of losing valuable Combo Points.
