Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Single-target:

Agility > Vers > Crit => Haste > Mastery

Multi-target:

Agility > Crit => Vers = Haste > Mastery

Outlaw rogues gearing process boils down to “pick ilvl gear.” There are no stat breakpoints of any kind. It is HIGHLY suggested to sim whatever gear drops as it’s the only way to know if the gear is an upgrade or not.

Stat Outline

Crit gives you a chance to deal double damage on all spells.

Haste increases your attack speed, and slightly increases energy regeneration rate.

Vers increases damage output, and reduces damage taken.

Mastery increases the damage of the damage proc of Main Gauche.

The best way to calculate stat priorities for your character is to "sim" your character

Races

Generally speaking, the DPS differences between the races are pretty inconsequential. Most of the time, it comes down to utility like Shadowmeld, Arcane Torrent, or Stoneform because they end up being more useful.

However, if we are strictly looking at the damage, the best races are:

Alliance:

Night Elf > Dwarf > Void Elf = Mechagnome

Horde:

Blood Elf = Zandalari Troll (Pa’ku) > Goblin > Undead

Enchants

Weapons: For single target, Enchant Weapon - Celestial Guidance and Enchant Weapon Sinful Revelation are the best 2 choices. However, for AoE damage, you want to use 2x Enchant Weapon - Lightless Force is the strongest. Something to note is that people will mention that “Lightless Force can miss, therefore its a sim-bait”. Lightless Force only needs to hit 2 targets to beat out Sinful and Celestial so it’s a lot more powerful than people give it credit.

Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Fortified Leech. Rogue already ends up being pretty durable to AoE damage with Feint, so in my opinion, leech ends up being more valuable.

Chest: You want to use Enchant Chest - Eternal Skirmish. However, Enchant Chest - Eternal Stats can also be used for increased cleave damage though it’d be a super minor difference.

Boots: Eternal Boots - Eternal Agility.

Rings: Enchant Ring - Tenet of Critical Strike, or Tenet of Versatility.

Gems

For gems you generally want either Deadly Jewel Cluster or Versatile Jewel Cluster, but make sure to sim your character to be certain.

Consumables

Flask: Spectral Flask of Power.

Potion: Potion of Phantom Fire for Single Target and Potion of Spectral Agility for AoE.

Food: Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism if it's available, and if not, you want to use Spinefin Souffle and Fries.

Weapon Oil/Stone: 2x Shaded Sharpening Stones.

Healing Potion: Spiritual Healing Potion.

Armour Kits: Heavy Desolate Armor Kit.
