Introduction

 

Hello and welcome to the Legion Assassination guide. Assassination is currently one the very best single target specs in the game. It excels in long fights by stacking cooldown reduction items but suffers heavily if target swapping is required. Its efficiency comes from its short cooldowns such as Vendetta and Kingsbane, and as such it allows for maintaining stable DPS output throughout a fight whereas other classes might be more reliant on their longer CDs.

Assassination also has the niche of execute through Zoldyck's Family Training Shackles for encounters where damage matters below 30% such as Star Augur.

As with every other rogue spec, it has one the best defensive kits in the game which allows you to handle mechanics for the rest of your raid, but more on that later into the guide.

 

This guide is an ongoing work in progress and is subject to change as new information comes to light and as discussions are made in the comments. This guide has been written and approved by Perfecto, a world first rogue playing in Method since 2012.
