WTB Sword Rogue rotation

Post#1 » Wed Feb 06, 2008 11:17 am

Ok, gang, the long-awaited day is about to arrive. In 24 hours, I should have the Gladiator Slicer S1 MH sword, which means that I'll be respeccing to combat swords very shortly. I'm gonna copy something close to Mera's spec to start out with and see how that goes.

That being said, I have to learn/relearn a new rotation since I'm not using Backstab anymore. :cry:

I'm already gathering the mats for 2 Mongoose chants on my swords, see here.

I know sword rogues use SS and Evis in their rotation but that's about it. I expect that Rupture will replace Backstab in my rotation but some advice from the sword rogues would be greatly appreciated.

Um, Evis is NEVER used unless the mob is immune to bleed effects or you don't have time to get the bleed effect off.

My typical rotation is 2 S&D and 5 rupture.

So Sinister Strike x2, S&D at 2 combo points, then Sinister Strike x5, and then Rupture at 5 combo points. Ok, I think I can swing that.

Yeah, I knew Evis is disfavored; I always used BackStab (or Rupture on bleed-vulnerable mobs) instead of Evis as my finishing move. Evis does crap-all for damage.

I gotta rearrange my action bar and relern2playmyrogue. I can't wait to see how my numbers improve.

You forgot the finishing move: throwing the soiled toliet paper in the toliet and flushing.
