I honestly feel Assassination is more like a Warrior on the Beta. the most effective way I've come up with to play it is

I agree on this some what, Assassination in MoP has felt like a warrior the whole time with less damage.

Cheap Shot Evendetta MFD DFA-> Vanish Envenom(Night Stalker) Spam your energy bar away

You don't want to spam energy as assassination. The spec is really energy dependent and the energy regen on assassination is still pretty bad.

Also in duels Dirty Tricks might be really fun because you can Cheap Shot, Gouge, Kidney, Blind, Gouge and keep bleeds and poisons ticking.
That's always been in MoP and used in duels. It's quite nice for duels and arenas if you're playing RLS, or RLD.

Assassination has always been good in twos though and Rzn didn't even put a bleed up, but nice to see it might make a comeback to PvP.

Is beta open at this point or it's still invitational? I haven't even checked and seeing as everyone is talking about assassination feels better. I would like to try this.

dont listen to any of the toxic people on this thread (@jaimex)

dno - it will take a long time to get really fluent as it, but for me and a lot of other people rogue is definitely the most rewarding class to play in a game

It's only rewarding when you get that clutch kill, but GL vs hybrid teams. Rogue just takes time to learn, you have to be very attentive. Between combo points, energy, kill target, focus target and partners it starts taking a toll on learning. This is why most people switch to an "easier class".

RLS (Assassination, Destro, Resto) - Works pretty well (2k w/o skype, but that was before my partners just stopped logging on at the beginning of the season). I also tried Boomy/Rogue/MW as well after I was fully geared; that went really good. Started from 2k rating to 2300 with that. I also do a lot of triple dps for fun (boomy/ret/hunter,rogue,warr) - the trip dps part killed my rating vs TSG's (huge amount of those around 2k ratings lol)

Thing about assassination, it's like a mix between afflication lock/warr. So much dot pressure/dmg output (energy based since mutilate eats up your energy), while you have a destro lock/boomy behind you pumping more damage. I normally save my burst till after all defensives are down since you really don't need to use them in the initial openers as assassination. Over time, Deadly poison damage just does absurd damage. You can say assassination is a dampening spec as well.

The only thing about assassination is it's hard to find players that will want a rogue, especially as assassination. Personally, the break point for assassination rogues in arenas is probably between 2200 - 2300. It does really well vs caster teams and plate teams. I've had issues with teams such as Mage/Hunter/X and LSD. I'm positive there are better rogues out there that can play the spec better than I can at this point and I would love for them to push the rating to it's max.
