Builds and Talents

General Talent Tree

Most Notable Talents

Bottom row Talents like Deeper Stratagem, Marked for Death, Shadow Dance, Cold Blood, Thistle Tea and Echoing Reprimand have the biggest impact in our playstyle.

Other Damage Talents

Thief’s Versatility grants us 4% Versatility. Left side Talents are granting us more Poison damage, critical strike chance, more maximum Energy and additional Combo Points whenever landing a critical strike. Right side Talents are granting us Energy cost reduction of Finishing moves, more damage during Stealth, Ambush generating more Combo Points and Finishing Moves granting us a stacking Haste buff.

Crowd Control & Utility

Sap, Blind and Gouge are top row Talents, and grant us more Crowd Control. Shadowstep and Improved Sprint grant us more mobility. Atrophic Poison reduces the enemies damage done by 4%, and Numbing Poison slowing their attack and cast speed by 18%.

Defensive Talents

Evasion, Feint and Cloak of Shadows are granting us strong defensive cooldowns. Other small Talents grant us more heal with Crimson Vial, or passive damage reduction.

Specialization Talent Tree

Single Target Talents

Blade Flurry is very strong for multi-target situations, and should always be picked up for raid bosses which also include small add cleave. Otherwise, we are not spending talent points in boosting Blade Flurry any further, but instead make sure to maximize our single-target damage.

Keep it Rolling is a strong 7 minutes cooldown, which allow us to extend the duration of the currently active Roll the Bones buffs by 30 seconds. This can be very useful whenever you are having your lucky roll – maybe even with all 5 buffs at the same time.

Triple Threat grants our Sinister Strike a chance of 20% to hit with both weapons, whenever Opportunity grants us an additional hit with Sinister Strike. 

Dreadblades is still a very strong cooldown, making its comeback from the Legion expansion. For 10 seconds, all your combo point gainers will grant you a full amount of combo points. This is especially very powerful whenever we play with 7 maximum combo points.

Multi Target Talents

Outlaw Rogues dont see many changes to their talent tree in comparison to their single-target. Reason for this is your Blade Flurry literally mirroring all your abilities up to 7 additional targets. 

There are only a few talents which we should use to boost our Blade Flurry even further. Those talents are located on the right side of the talent tree. Ambidexterity grants our Mastery Main Gauche to have a 5% additional chance to strike while Blade Flurry is active. 

Dancing Steel increases the overall amount of targets hit by Blade Flurry by 3, and increases its duration by 3 seconds. Precise Cuts increases your damage for every missing target below the maximum target count of Blade Flurry. This will even boost your damage whenever your Blade Flurry doesnt hit the maximum amount of enemies.

Stat Priority

Stat Choice for Outlaw Rogue

General Stat Priority for Outlaw Rogue with our Build is:

  1. Agility
  2. Versatility
  3. Critical Strike
  4. Haste
  5. Mastery

Agility is your primary stat, meaning that Itemlevel is superior in most cases. Higher Itemlevel will also increase your Stamina and Armor that you gain.

Critical Strike increases the chance for your abilities and spells to deal double damage.

Haste reduces your global cooldown, your time to cast spells, and reduces the cooldown of many abilities.

Versatility grants you a flat damage increase, but also a damage decrease for half of its value.

Mastery grants your mainhand attacks to trigger an attack with your off-hand weapon.

The further we are getting into the expansion, the effects of diminishing returns start to limit your effective gain of your secondary stats. After reaching 30% (by rating) of any given stat, you will start to receive a penalty that reduces the gain from more of the same stat over this treshold.

Stat priority can differ on every character. Make sure to simulate yourself on Raidbots get the perfect results for you.
