I will start adding some guides to my blog from now, some made by me and some by guild mates or that i took from other forums and make them easy for you to find =).
This guide is made for version 1.12.1 of WoW, that you can find on http://www.wow-one.com server! And yeah… my guild mate Wallzy wrote it.
Here we go!
Consumables you should bring:
Heavy runecloth bandages
Major healing potion
Greater fire protection potion
Elixir of the mongoose
Elixir of the giants
Scroll of agility/strength – for progression/ A MUST FOR BWL
Winterfall firewater – for progression / A MUST FOR BWL
Smoked desert dumplings – A MUST FOR BWL
Thistle tea – for combat dagger,i usually bring 40 for every raid.
Few tips –
as a rogue,you want to improve the major part of your damage,offhand and white dmg.you ALWAYS have to keep Slice&Dice up,no matter what.slice and dice should always be applied ritght after your opener,and it should be timed,use it when the last SnD has 1 or 0 sec left,dont overlap it,this will prevent you from wasting your energy pool.If you can time it well,you will improve your dps.
MinMaxing - this is the ultimate goal for every rogue in a raid.you want to maximum dmg,and have the lowest ammount of threat.this means usint rupture instead of evis,and garrot instead of ambush.this kinda depends on your dps,if you always are high on the threatmeter,i would suggest using garrot and rupture instead of ambush and evis. A part of min maxing is also to never let SnD run out,not even for a split second,if it do run out,and you cant refresh it,you are doing your rotation wrong,when SnD runs out,you should always have 25 energy in your pool to refresh it with.
Use instant poison,not deadly.The debuff limit is fixed,so your deadly poison will only replace a better debuff,like warlock curses etc.
Adrenaline Rush & Blade Flurry
Should be used whenever its avalible,but try to time it so you can use it at the bossfights. Be careful tho,if you are high on a threat meter on a boss fight,use vanish before using theese two.
every item should be enchanted,it is actually insain how much one extra enchant can improve your dps,and for gods sake,dont EVER get +5 wep dmg! it does not scale correctly. as a dagger rogue,the best option would be double crusader,since the proc can stack on this server.as swords i personally go with double 15 agi for the AP, and crit.
+Hit is probably the easiest way to improve your dps.a minimum is 13% with talents,and that aint much at all.in the high end instances,most rogues go with 12%+,from gear only!
if you do asspull while in a raid,tell it immediately on Vent,dont just vanish! if someone got a HoT up,they will get aggro when you vanish,andit could wipe the whole raid.
Being on time –
It aint hard to show up 10 minutes before the raid start,you should actually be at the entrance,before the invite starts.
