Welcome to the Assassination Rogue guide for World of Warcraft the Burning Crusade. In this guide, you will learn about playing an Assassination Rogue in dungeons and raids. The guide includes Talents, Gems, Enchantments, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

There is not much room for changes in a Mutilate build since it has the required 41 points for Mutilate after which we go to Combat tree for Precision, Improved Slice and Dice and Dual Wield Specialization.

One thing to change in the build depending on your current enchants: Improved Poisons should be taken with Enchant Boots – Cat’s Swiftness, while Fleet Footed should be combined with Enchant Boots – Dexterity. The reason is that these movement speed effects do not stack. Also, they both provide 8% movement speed bonus.

Due to Mutilate requirements – choice of weapons is Daggers. Slower main-hand dagger with 1.7-1.9 speed and a faster Off-hand dagger.

Enchants

Enchanters can also benefit from Enchant Ring – Stats and Enchant Ring – Striking.

Leatherworking is a great option. Not only is it useful for your group with Drums of Battle & Drums of War, but you can also craft armor on almost every stage of your progression.

Jewelcrafting can be used to create Figurine – Shadowsong Panther (will be replaced), Hard Khorium Band (BiS), Hard Khorium Choker (BiS) and epic gems.

Enchanting will mainly be used to make your armor enchants and unique ring enchants.

Engineering provides a list of useful items during your progression, like Deathblow X11 Goggles and Quad Deathblow X44 Goggles which are present in T6 BiS list (there are better items though). Goblin Jumper Cables XL will come in handy since you can Vanish even if everyone else is wiped.

Windfury Totem

on MH weapon, and Deadly Poison on the OH.

If there is no shaman to provide Windfury Totem, use Instant poison on MH and Deadly Poison on OH weapon.

Open up with Garrote
Maintain Slice and Dice at all time (with 3-5 Combo Points) and Rupture (always with 5 Combo Points) on the target.

Mutilate is your main skill to get combo points. Shiv can be used to re-apply Deadly Poison. It’s worth using Shiv if the stack of poison is about to end on the target.

Expertise – Agility & Hit – Haste – Crit – Armor Penetration

With 5/5 Precision, you will need an additional 4% of Hit (64 rating) to reach soft cap, where special attacks always hit.

Do not take blood splatter as an assination rogue, its a useless talent as you are not using rupture and you apply garrote once.
Instead put the points into Fleet Footed to make you move faster and get to your targets quicker to build up deadly poison.

That is not entirely accurate : you have to use Rupture if no one else can apply a bleeding effect on the target to activate Hunger for Blood when the first one goes down

Dova114 is right. If doing 25m someone else is guaranteed to have a bleed effect. I would only take blood splatter if 10m was the only raid comp you did.

At most you would only put a 1 – 2 combo point rupture, it is not worth wasting talent points into an ability you would be barely using. You have Warrior Deep wounds, Combat rogue rupture, Bear Lacerate, Kitty Rip + Rake, and hunter piercing shot. Chance you will need to put it up more than one garrote is beyond impossible as in 10 man you should be taking one of these classes.

Yes I agree with you two, I just reminded people with a 10 men raid without any other bleed effect to take that in consideration
