    Die-Hard Subtlety-Fan LF theorycrafting Help (Simcraft?) PVE

    Hello there!

    Today i finally made up my mind to learn Simcraft: to optimize myself without having to rely on outside sources too much, or be at the mercy of outdated guides and so on.
    When i looked into the Subtlety Profiles however, i was kind of lost. I can't seem to find any entries utilizing Subterfuge for example.

    I tried Assassination last Lockout, and although it's kind of funny to rock the Meters without any serious effort, i can't see myself playing this Spec without dieing of boredom or rerolling....

    So here we go: Im looking for a Simcraft-Enthusiast who has no issues with helping a noob, chatting a bit and so on.

    I can provide lots of logs in a HC-Environment to test certain Setups/Builds, motivation, and....fun? maybe?

    my armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/de/characte...perbolt/simple

    see ya!


    ps.: oh, im no native speaker, sorry for any grammatical butchering above and beyond

    Well, this is an exceptionally broad subject matter with very little in the way of background work. Where would you like to begin? The profiles? Do you understand the methodology in them? Is there something you would like to try out?

    Regarding the methodology, im obviously still learning, but it's not that hard. My biggest gripe is the Sub profile of course, so i would like to start with optimizing that.

    As for trying things out: yeah, im still a big fan ob ST/BS Weaving, so i want to see the limits of the spec! Shadowcraft isnt very transparent regarding action-priorities and so on...

    keeping this thread bookmarked. Getting tired of Mut - I would much rather be Subtlety, but don't want to hurt my raid's DPS by a whole lot either. :-\ perhaps Sub will have better bosses next tier... or we're missing something significant here?

    Well, you'll need to give me some kind of example. I'm happy to help you out in all this, but I'm afraid I don't have the time any more to go and theorycraft out an entire spec

    Sub is a spec a lot of people would like to play, but still nobody does because there are no detailed info/guides about it - this leads to worse modeling and more difficulties for theorycrafters, etc.

    I would play sub all the time, but i don't even play rogue this tier.

    Sorry, but this is not to be discussed here. I want to question how to optimize, not if its viable (it is).

    Here are logs from this ID with some HC's (Horridon as Assa) with ST/BS Weaving: http://www.worldoflogs.com/guilds/15...alendar/04-13/

    Ill post my Action-Priority from Simulationcraft when im at Home!
