Season of Discovery Rogue Pre-Raid Best Runes, Talents and Gear List | WoW Classic
Hey there, fellow Rogues! Today, we're diving deep into the world of Classic WoW, specifically the Season of Discovery (Phase 1), to uncover the best Rogue builds. We're talking two killer builds: a nimble DPS and a surprisingly sturdy Rogue tank pre-raid gear, runes, and talents. Let's get you ready to dominate in Blackfathom Deeps!
↖ Rogue Tank Build
- Chest Rune - Just a Flesh Wound: This beauty makes you a beast in tanking. With 20% less physical damage taken during Blade Dance and a reduced chance of critical melee hits, you're practically a walking fortress. Plus, the massive threat increase and a taunt? Priceless.
- Leg Rune - Blade Dance: Your flashy finisher that boosts your Parry chance. More combo points mean longer and stronger parries – essential for your Rogue tanking toolkit.
- Hand Rune - Main Gaou: This nifty rune lets your offhand strike like lightning and hikes your Parry chance. It also plays nice with Sinister Strike talents, making it a must-have.
- Improved Sinister Strike (2 points): Less energy cost, more efficiency.
- Lightning Reflexes (3 points): Boost that Dodge chance!
- Deflection (5 points) & Precision (5 points): More Parry and hit chance, making you a slick tank.
- Reposte (1 point): A snazzy counter-attack with disarm. Who says tanks can't be flashy?
|Headpiece||Bright-Eye Goggles (Engineering) - Style meets substance.|
|Neck||Sentinel's Medallion (Honor those Sentinels or Outriders!)|
|Shoulders||Robust Shoulders of the Monkey - Agility and stamina, baby.|
|Chest||Tunic of Westfall for Alliance, or any 'of the Monkey' variant for Horde.|
|Weapons||Basel's Basher (main hand) and Protector's Sword (offhand) - slice and dice in style.|
|Legs||Leggings of the Fang - A no-brainer for strength, agility, and stamina.|
↖ Rogue DPS Build
- Chest Rune - Deadly Brew: Make your poisons extra nasty by automatically applying Deadly Poison.
- Leg Rune - Inv Venom: Your new finishing move, replacing Eviscerate. More poisons, more fun!
- Hand Rune - Mutilate: Double weapon attack plus extra damage against poisoned targets? Yes, please!
- Malice (5 points): More crits, more hits.
- Improved Slice and Dice (3 points): Keep that buff rolling.
- Ruthlessness (2 points) & Lethality (5 points): Combo points and boosted Mutilate damage.
- Relentless Strikes (1 point): Energy restoration for sustained DPS.
|Headpiece||Engineering Goggles - because looking good is half the battle.|
|Neck||Silver Wing Sentinel Medallion - a nod to your PvP efforts.|
|Shoulders||Bristlebark Amice - agility and strength for that extra oomph.|
|Chest||Tunic of Westfall for Alliance, Dervish Tunic of Agility for Horde.|
|Weapons||Basel's Basher and Protector's Sword, or daggers if Mutilate demands.|
|Legs||Leggings of the Fang - a solid choice for any DPS build.|
Whether you're tanking hits or dishing out damage, these builds will have you prepped and primed for Blackfathom Deeps. Remember, the right gear can make or break your run, so suit up wisely!
