You decided to explore the world ofAzeroth as a Rogue? You’re going to need will and patience in order to masterthe depths of this infamous class.

The competition will be tough andfree spots in groups/raids will be limited. You will need to prove yourperformance in order to become an asset in raids. If competition doesn’t boreyou and if your ego is sturdier than Thorium, then you might just have what ittakes to play a Rogue.

As a rogue, you will be wearing leather armor,allowing you to remain quick and agile in order to assassinate your victims…andgiant monsters. If you prefer to use robes and skirts to attract your preys, that’syour call.

## 1. Recommended races for Rogues in PvE

Here are our recommendations to pickthe best race for your Rogue in PvE!

### Horde PvE : Orc

Fureur sanguinaire:Burst DPS burst that stacks withactive items (trinkets, potions…)

Solidité: Higher chance to resist stuns, possiblychanging the tide of a fight.

### Alliance PvE : Human

Spécialisation Epée/Spécialisation Masse:Veryinteresting because it increases your chance to hit and makes it less likelyyour attacks will be dodged/parried/blocked, also makes it less likely yourhits will be glancing blows.

For Horde players, the best race forPvE is Orc. Bloodlust works very well with Déluge de lames), despite leading to slightsurvivability issues.

For Alliance, unless you only wantto play with daggers (which is a possibility), nothing beasts Human.

Human is**thebest Alliance race for PvE**because their weapon skill bonuses (Spécialisation EpéeandSpécialisation Masse)increase their hit chance and make your glancing blowsstronger.

## 2. Recommended professions for Rogues

Here are our recommendations foryour Rogue’s professions for PvE.

### Engineering

Perfectprofession for PvE (and PvP), allowing you to deal heavy area damage thanks toa variety of grenades and explosives. This profession allows you to use Coq de combat gnome, but also aPetit dragon en arcanitethat can breathe fire and deal significant fire damagein raids!

### Mining

Materialsgained through Mining will allow you to easily level Engineering. Moreover, asa rogue you can easily secure ore in the wild: just sap or stun your enemieslong enough to mine it!

### Leatherworking

Leatherworking is handy for rogues,you can ste…pick up a bunch of leather and craft your own armor likeArmure de diablosaure(pre-raid BiS).

### Skinning

You’rean expert at cutting up beasts’ corpses and leather is worth a lot, so why notpick up this profession? As for mining, use your crowd control abilities tosecure leather in the wild.

### Alchemy

Are you addicted to consumables thatenhance your raid performance?

Combined with Herbalism, this allows you to beself-sufficient for pre-raid preparations. That being said, we recommend youpick engineering instead, because gathering professions are better on “alts”.

### Herbalism

Thequintessential farming profession. Classic WoW is filled with herbs of allkinds, just turn herb detection on and run around looking at your radar.

## 3. Pros & Cons of playing a Rogue

__The good parts:__

- Sometalents are tailored for PvE and very done for swords & dagger specs.
- Potentoffensive and defensive cooldowns (mainly for survival)
- Threatisn’t much of an issue thanks to Vanish and Feint.

__The badparts:__

- Thesword spec is slightly better than the dagger spec but requires constant,intense focus.
- Lotsof competition for raid spots and item attribution.
- Handlingyour environment is important due to positional abilities and fragility.
- Thereare a lot of things you need to keep track of in fights: how much health yourtarget has left, which targets you want to attack next, how much energy youhave now and in the near future, combo points on your target, the remainingduration on Débiter, remaining behind your targets at all time, avoidingattacks and spells, using your cooldowns properly, and if you’re using swordspec, constantly keeping an eye on your swing timer so you don’t lose bonusattacks fromAttaque pernicieuse.

Learning how tosurvive is essential to masteryour class, you have one of the best abilities in the game to help you not loseyour buffs if things go awry.

Don’t forget that you have a wholearsenal of abilities for crowd control, and that you can do a lot to deal withunwanted pulls/mobs.

Additionally, remember your famous«kick» which can interrupt enemy spells, although some enemies areimmune.

In short, this isn’t asingle-button class thatyou can play half-asleep if you’re looking to do well on the DPS meters!

## 4. How to play your Rogue

The rogue rotation is fairly easy tounderstand but you still need to be able to adapt and anticipate.

Depending on your spec, the basicidea is: get some combo points (CP), useDébiter(depending on the target and on how many targets areinvolved in the fight, you won’t necessarily use 5 combo points for yourDébiter/Eviscération),get some more combo points, use a4/5 CP (usually no less than that) Eviscérationif you have enough time remaining onDébiter.

Depending on the situation, you canuse your 2 or 5 minutes CDs (taking into account the huge threat you’re aboutto generate).

It’s not always easy to follow thiscycle exactly, particularly when you have to kick spells, the target has to bemoved or if you yourself have to move somewhere for survival purposes (Ragnarosanyone?).

It’s very important for DPS playersto be able to anticipate and react properly to a variety of situations:

- Situation A:Everything’s going great and you’re progressing fine
- Situation B:Your party has to stop for one reason or another, it is then useful to use someabilities or play differently if you can anticipate this situation.
- Situation C:The tank dies, loses aggro, fell asleep before the pull or you’re being too(un)lucky and all your hits are critical strike, and you grab aggro from thetank. You need to be prepared for those things to happen and react accordingly.

Always keep in mind the duration of the cooldownof abilities Evasion,Disparitionand evenSprintwhich sometimes comes in handy. Being able tokeep your buffs is a nice asset if things go awry! A dead DPS is a useless DPS.

4.1. Poisons

Finally, let’s discuss Poisons andDoTs (Damage over Time).

Poisons are essentially ashort-duration enchantment on your weapons. You can’t modify their damage, buttheir proc chance is directly linked to your hit chance. If you miss or yourattack is parried or blocked, your poisons won’t be applied.

Keep in mind that some NPCs areimmune to poison. For example,elementals are, and therefore **MANY** mobs/bossesin **Molten Core (phase 1)** are. In this case, you’re better offusing Pierre à aiguiser dense, orPierre à aiguiserélémentaire(althoughthey’re more expensive...) Horde players can’t cumulate poison or whetstones with shamans’TotemFurie-des-ventsif you have one in your group. Itgives you additional attacks for your main hand weapon which is very powerful,especially for Swords or Mace users.

Poison mortel Vare more powerful than Poison instantané VI. Unfortunately, there is a 16 debuffslimit in Classic WoW on any target: you’re going to have to leave these debuffslots to people who need them more

On a few Bosses, some niche poisonscan be used such asPoison douloureux IV,Poison affaiblissant IIorPoison de distractionmentale IIIwhichcan come in handy in some situations, although you’re going to need to figurethat which by yourselves!

## 5. The best PvE Rogue specs

Rogues have 3 main paths they canchoose from talent-wise:

Style 1: The most common path: 31points in the Combat tree and reaching **WeaponSkills**as well asDéluge de lamesandPoussée d'adrénalinewith the remaining talent pointsspread out in the other trees depending on your weapon of choice.

**Dagger Spec**15/31/5**Sword Spec**19/32/0**Mace Spec**19/32/0

Style 2 :Not as enticing as the “Combat”spec for experienced players, the Scelle le destinspec allows your abilities to generate2 combo points instead of one if they’re critical strikes. This allows you toEviscérationmore often, and also to have theFrappes implacableswhich gives back 25 energy.

**SealFate Spec**: 30/16/5

Style 3: The**Hemorrhage**specialist. You generally only want one player per raid using this specialty,as having more than one is useless. Notonly that, but even having only one isn’t necessary or even recommended. Thisspec is only interesting once you reach a certain level of gear and worldbuffs, as well as having many physical DPS players in your raid.

**Hemorrhage Spec**: 2/28/21

Edit

The "Dagger spec" rogue is one of the moststraightforward spec, and is consistently useful.

Rarely,you will have to use Attaquepernicieuseifyou can’t hit your target in the back withAttaquesournoise.Otherwise, only useAttaquesournoiseandkeepDébiterup to make yourautoattacks more effective.

This spec doesn’tbenefit from usingEviscération, we recommend youonly use your combo points on Débiter.Eviscérationwill only beused very rarely, and only with 5 CP.

## 5.2 Sword spec 19/32/0

The"Sword Spec" is one of the hardest specs to master. You don’t onlyneed to keep upDébiterwith combo points from Attaque pernicieuse. Those are taken intoaccount in the so called "bonus attack".

The bonus attack isin fact a reset of your swing timer (depending on your weapon speed).

Edit

Your“Main-Hand” [MH] and your” Off-Hand” [OH] differ: the OH is never taken intoaccount by your special attacks, unlike your MH. This means that while your MHautoattack is “on cooldown”, using Attaque pernicieusecan proca talent that resets that CD and immediately cause another MH autoattack. This means that yourbonus attack is only a swing reset if it procs from a Attaque pernicieuse.

In order to optimizethis bonus, you need to know when to useAttaque pernicieusefor maximum value: you need an addon thatshows your "Swing timer" in order to use Attaque pernicieuseright after a MH autoattack.

## 5.3 Mace spec 19/32/0

The**Mace Spec** is fairly simple but canbe very dangerous!

Theconcept is similar to the sword spec, although you can ignore "Swing timers"entirely.Keep in mind that you have a 6% chance to "stun" yourenemies with hits, although most mobs & Bosses are immune to this effect.

This can actually bea downside: If you immediately stun a target on pull, your tank will not betaking damage, which means he will not be getting rage from that damage, andwill have more issues generating enough threat to keep aggro, possibly beingforced to Taunt this main target, which can get problematic when there aremultiple enemies in the fight.

Edit

Thiscan actually be a downside: If you immediately stun a target on pull, your tankwill not be taking damage, which means he will not be getting rage from thatdamage, and will have more issues generating enough threat to keep aggro,possibly being forced to Taunt this main target, which can get problematic whenthere are multiple enemies in the fight.

Thiscan also be a problem if your group wants to move targets from one place toanother. If you randomly stun one, making it unable to move, you riskendangering your group.

Thisspec is only recommended for phases 4 & 5, in Ahn’Qiraj & Naxxramas. It’sfar from mandatory, and focuses on survival over DPS. Your job becomes to helpcontrol targets, or protect cloth users.

N.B.: It’s prettyrare for PvE rogues to use this spec, but it can be useful in the rightsituation.

## 5.4 Seal Fate Spec 30/16/5

TheSeal Fate spec is not very popular for raid progression. It is only valuable onbosses where you need to hit very hard, very fast (Vaelastrasz/Loatheb/etc).

The focus is onspecial attacks: combo point generators (Attaque sournoise/Attaque pernicieuse) generate twice as many combo points if theycritically hit, “finishers” like Eviscérationalso play animportant role. This is whyEtreinte du dispensateur de mortis perfect for this spec, because itincreases your Eviscération damage.

Edit

Thatbeing said, this spec requires constant focus and an ability to think ahead. Anymistake can cause a massive DPS loss because of the key role of "finishers".

NB : This specrequires world buffs in order to get enough critical strike chance. Variants usingswords/maces exist but they’re not viable.

## 5.5 Hemorrhage Spec 2/28/21

TheHemo spec is interesting because of its niche: Only one rogue in a raid willever use it, and only if you have **18 ormore** physical DPS classes.

Youessentially play as a regular rogue, keeping upDébiter, but you also want tomaintain theHémorragiedebuff on yourtarget, which increases all physical damage taken by 7.

Edit

This spec also requires advancedgear and as many world buffs as possible, because it is really lacking indamage output compared to Combat specs.

Hémorragiecan be better than Attaque pernicieusedependingon your Attack Power, your gear, and the world buffs you have.

Here is the formula to find out ifyour AP is high enough to use the Hémorragiespec in raids:

AP = ( 882.98 - 1.015 * (Minimum Weapon Damage +Maximum Weapon Damage) / 2 ) / ( Weapon Speed - 2.226 ).

## 7. About your statistics

It is often recommended to use thisor that stat instead of others, but do you understand why?

Without going into complex mathwhich wouldn’t necessarily help you, let’s try to set some fundamentals.

Melee attacks use pseudo dice rollsto determine whether your attacks will hit or not. Autoattacks and special attacks usedifferent formulas.

Only one dice roll determines whether your autoattacks hit or not (see thetable below), while special attacks use 2. The first is on the same table andascertains whether your attack will be blocked or hit, the second whether theattack will critically strike or not. If your attack is blocked, whether itcritically strikes or not is irrelevant, because it will do no damage either way.Only "glancing blow" are not taken into account for special attacks.

7.1. Here are all the outcomes that matter when you’re doing damage to your target

- Miss
- Dodge
- Parry
- Glancing Blow
- Block
- Critical Strike
- Hit

Mobs can only parry or block attacks comingfrom the front. If you’reattacking from their backs, this never happens. Note that while players can’tdodge attacks from the back, NPCs can.

Special Attacks’ hit cap is 9% forevery class. However, you need to take into account Weapon Skill and CriticalStrike Chance.

In this regard, rogues are favored:they get hit chance, critical strike chance and weapon skill in their talenttrees. You can easily get 5% hit & crit chance as well as 5 weapon skill. We’ll get back to this later.

7.2. Hit Cap for Rogues

Values for Hit Cap and other stats arerarely transparent. Tounderstand them, you need to understand some formulas involving your level 60stats (and your base weapon skill of 300 assuming you didn’t forget to level itup!) and your target’s level, which is 63 for Bosses, who have a defence statof 315.

Rogues must therefore take intoaccount the 5% hit chance and the 5 weapon skill from their talents: theirweapon skill becomes 305, and lose 2% of their chance to miss (indirectly worth3% hit chance) as well as a slightly higher chance to critically strike, and alower chance of their attacks getting dodged / parried / blocked

Once at the 9% hit cap, the statbecomes secondary and critical strike chance becomes more interesting.

NB : Mobs whose defence is at least 10 higherthan your weapon skill ignore 1% of your hit chance, which is why your hit capis 9% and not 8%.

7.3. Rogue’s stats

- 1 Attack Power
- 1 Agility= 1 Attack Power, + 0,03448% critical strike chance, + 2 armor and + 0,051% dodge (29 agi = 1% critical strike chance)
- 1 Strength= 1 Attack Power
- 1 Stamina= 10 Health

Spirit increases your Healthregeneration out of combat. Intelligenceincreases how fast you increase your weapon skills up to your cap (determinedby your level).

7.4. Glancing Blows / Weapon Skill

Glancing Blows only happen on yourautoattacks: they’re weaker hits that can’t critically strike. Glancing Blows are two separate events:

- First, a 10% chance on a monster of the same level as you, adding 10% for each level above your own. This means that against a level 63 boss, 40% of your autoattacks will be glancing blows. This is unavoidable.
- An autoattack that becomes a glancing blow does 35% less damage against a level 63 boss.

This is when Weapon Skill becomes important;every point above 300 will reduce this 35% penalty. To figure out the exacteffect, see this table whose values were confirmed during the Classic WoW beta,taking into account a level 63 boss has a defence of 315 and your weapon skillis 300+x. The value on the left is the difference between a mob’s defence andyour weapon skill. The value on the right is the damage reduction of glancingblows.

Becauseof this, 308 weapon skill (regardless of the bonus hit chance it gives) is theoptimal score against raid bosses.
