Thinking of running boomy/rogue/mw (like to try out different comps) and was wondering if anyone had an opinion on what spec would suit the comp the best?

Im guessing by the name of the comp (im aware theres usually a disc priest) sub is the spec of choice, but would the spread pressure from assass work better with the boomy?

Also do you think this comp is even worth the effort or will we just have a bad time due to lack of purge?

P.S. I know the logical answer is try it for yourself and see but I'm stuck at work and theorycrafting!

P.S.S I know MW is not ideal but my brother likes playing it so he plays it!

Combats prob the best spec for that comp btw but any spec will work, burst of speed is good with a boomy too cause you can ride the fuck out of healers

Are there any players that stream this comp or would have videos with them playing it?

Would love to be able to do further research on strats etc

Nah, unless you're just gonna tunnel healers all day sub is without question the best spec for rogue/moonkin. If you watch the video leekzy linked you'll notice that alessia was playing sub even though it technically sucked last season. The control sub brings to the table is essential for dwts because if the moonkin knows how to burst properly the rogue's damage isn't even that important.

some 3s games from yesterday showcasing a bit more of how the comp works i guess, EU ladder is probably less forgiving to queue on than US aswell (US meta seems to allow different comps to work, on EU for example moonkins and MLS doesnt seem to work as well as on US, and on US i havent seen that many shatters).

also im pretty sure combat or assa is better than sub for laddering in every rogue comp, sub has its advantages in certain matchups for sure though

I have played this comp this season on 2k3-2k4 mmr and or me, sub is just the best spec, you have a lot of control during your dance and you also have big dmg.

And the most important thing to consider: sub is fun, unlike assa and combat.

I think at least starting out sub should be your best pick, off kidney into your dance on moonkin burst seems pretty straightforward and easy enough to execute.

If played correctly, i think sub is at the same level as assa and combat.

If you run this comp with an rsham locks comps are not an issue (I've run this to glad the past couple seasons so I kinda know how it all plays out).

Cheers for all the replies, if nothing else, it's cool to see some enthusiasm about the comp!

I'm leaning towards sub and trying to learn the ropes at the moment so just to ask a more rogue specific question..

Do you guys worry about the 4 set? or am I better off using my random box epics?
