TBH Sub isn't even the best specrogue arena
Posted 21 November 2015 - 01:26 PM
Sin is best for 2's, by FAR. You have 3-4 huge burst opportunities per game with sin (Trinket, double vanish, glyph of dissapearance, Vendetta). Its constant damage and regular burst windows really make it a superior spec to Sub in 2's.
No, it isn't the spec you're playing which is holding you back in arena. It's you playing your class incorrectly. What sub does have going for it is shadow dance which makes Blinding and then sapping off of a blind very easy while still being able to burst your target during a dance.
But you do NOT have to play sub to get high rating. In fact the Rank 1 player in the entire world, a Combat Rogue on EU named Waazlysnips (3159 last season) plays ONLY combat.
The thing you need to learn about rogue is you have tools to royally screw over people's big cooldowns. Its like a flow chart. The first thing you need to master in arena is your Arena and Focus 123 macros. Master them and make them part of your muscle memory and I PROMISE you that you will get higher rating.
Someone trinkets your cheap shot? Blind into double sap.
Someone sits your stun? Destroy their partner and blind off of the cheap shot.
Trinkets your blind? MFD Kidney into gouge.
These rotations are especially delicious against feral druids, the OP cowards they are. Oh sorry, were you using incarnation?
Every rogue spec is a great rogue spec. You shouldn't feel like you aren't a great rogue if you don't want to play sub. Who would? Its needlessly complicated for that few extra tools that sub has. Combat literally does 99% of what sub does, and so does Assassination. I personally believe that the ONLY thing which makes you a good rogue is playing the class correctly, and using focus/arena123 macros for shadowstep, blind, and sap.
Some useful Macros and further advice for rogues who are bad and/or learning this class:
Whenever you are doing 2's and you need to open on someone who has a stealth partner (IE DK/Feral) you should open with combat readiness from stealth. Then you cheapshot and open, etc. etc.
#showtooltip Combat Readiness
/cast Combat Readiness
You will usually be opened on immediately, so this ensures that when feral druids stun lock your ass you take greatly reduced damage for a few seconds.
Great sap macro for finding stealthed players while you are shrouding your partner in is
This macro will instantly sap a stealthed target the second they become visible in stealth (if you walk near them for instance). Basically saps the nearest player to you.
Honestly tethering your feint to Evasion really really helps your survivability when you're in trouble, I'd recommend using this macro too. you can spam the key when stunned and it will activate Evasion and will keep activating Feint during the whole cooldown.
Whenever you use a vanish, and you need to reset it so you can vanish again in a hairy situation. this macro makes sure you get use of the other two abilities that Prep resets. There's no real sense using it for no reason, but there's no sense NOT using these abilities either, and they're going to be reset anyways when you cast prep to vanish. Sometimes the random Evasion or Sprint cast that goes off can make a difference, but its mostly just so you use ALL the abilities that prep resets even when you don't need the cooldown.
Thx, have a good day

the only hunter i approve of is dillypoo. the remainder of hunters' existence offends me to my core. when i wake up, i am troubled that in some parts of the world, there are other humans who still partake in slavery, sex trafficking, and hunter playing on world of warcraft
did you ever get round to taking it? It's actually the best free site i've found
Gonna take that as you flopped hard and couldn't get near my score with repeated tries

Everyone knows that tlety hasn't been the best spec lol, just US players will make fun of you if you play bat so we don't have to deal with that shit
