I'm going to summarise my rotation and would appreciate any inputs.
Combo builder is Backstab and keeping up SnD, Hemo and Rupture
Pull: Stealth - Premed - SnD - Hemo - Ambush - Rupture
Wait for FW to finish then Shadow Dance and Shadow Blades together
Wait for FW to finish then Vanish - Ambush
Use Prep and Vanish again after FW is done and Ambush
After that I use SD and SB whenever it is up - saving SB until there is no FW buff on me
Default in simcraft is to not use shadowblades and shadow dance together. Simc is using Shadowblades on the pull and then about 10 seconds later uses shadow dance

have question about combat gemming : currently using shadowcraft i get : red - agi+haste ; yellow - haste , but when i click reforge and optimize gems it changes: red - agi; yellow - agi+haste and then again when i reforge, optimize gems it switches back to pure haste.
Shadowcraft says ill do around 1k dps less using agility for red and agi+haste for yellow. (will i suffer more dps loss ingame during encounters if i go for agility ? or shadowcraft is right and difference is marginal ?)

If you're ping-ponging between two stat weights each time you re-gem, it means the ideal (for Shadowcraft's report) is somewhere between those 2 options. More agility gemming than full haste and less than full agility should yield the highest result, in theory, for single target.
I'm not sure how values change as you increase # of targets for cleave (I'd suspect haste pulls ahead because you need to build Bandit's Guile and flurry slows the process, but I really do not know), but I also suspect that, if you have issues with playing under AR/SB, the full value of haste is hard to utilize, since you'll get closer to GCD-capped (or cap, depending on lack of T15 4p and haste values).
Hey guys, got a question.
Here's my rogue http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...rgarion/simple
As you can see i play combat, and stacked haste like crazy. At what point of gear/haste i reach sweet "cata like" spot when i don't have to wait for energy to use sinister strike for ages ?
"waiting for ages" is very subjective. Stack haste until you feel comfortable and then, stack more. Because it is the best stat per point for combat (most of the time)
A witty saying proves nothing.
not quite Batman
I've just got AoC and some decent combat weapons. I was using sin since I came back to WoW (a day before 5.4 was out) and really liked it, didnt bother with combat until I got the fistwep from the 2nd boss. Sunddenly since I got AoC, both ShC and MrRobot told me to go full haste. What do you guys think about going full haste with a latency no lower than 200ms?
Veni, vidi, vici.
I like MoP now c:
Great guide, I just want to point out that stat priorities change depending on ilvl but mainly if you have the legendary gem/cloak. I suggest putting somewhere in your guide a reference to shadowcraft (or other tools that can measure stat weights) especially if they are raiders with an are in guild progression.

Playing subtlety is like ballroom dancing, just that there is an ugly monster between you and your partner (tank).
hey i didnt want to create new thread so gonna ask here.
I was recently considering change from pure haste gems to agility, so my sub spec could gain some more dps.
Wanted to check on shadowcraft how much combat will suffer on such change and i notice that agility amount in shadowcraft is different from agility in game.

Is it normal ? does this have any impact on shadowcraft calculations ?
