Rogue Enchants, Gems and Consumables – 4.0.3a

Posted on: Jan 14, 2011 | Author: Garona

Rogue Gems Enchants and Consumables

Maximising your DPS first starts with knowing your class inside out including talent builds, glyphs and reforging. In addition to this you may also wish to make sure you have the very best enchants and gems in your rogue’s gear as well as the best buff food and flasks at your disposal. All of these things add up to great DPS for your rogue if done correctly.


The following is the general rule of thumb for gemming your rogue’s gear according to the socket colour:

Red Sockets: [Delicate Inferno Ruby] or [Delicate Chimera's Eye] (JC Only)
Yellow Sockets:
[Deft Ember Topaz] (Combat, Subtlety) or [Adept Ember Topaz] (Mutilate)
Blue Sockets:
[Glinting Demonseye]
Meta Socket: [Thundering Skyflare Diamond] (temporary) [Chaotic Shadowspirit Diamond] (when fixed)

For any remaining hit or expertise required use reforging and gear to obtain these values. You may wish to ignore socket bonuses in some cases and use only [Delicate Inferno Ruby] instead in some of your gear items. To work out if this would be a benefit or a loss use the rogue EP values to determine the value of the gems with or without the socket bonus. Whether or not a socket bonus will be worth it is different with each individual gear item.


Flasks[Flask of the Winds]
Make sure you always have a flask active on your rogue during raiding. They persist through death and provide the best stats in the game so even though they may seem expensive at the moment compared to elixirs they are definitely worth the cost. If you guild has the appropriate achievement you may be able to use a Cauldron for raids instead which will provide the same flask.

Food - [Skewered Eel]
Always bring your own food with you to raids and ensure it is 90 Agility and not 60. Even if your raid leader provides equivalent feasts, you may not always get the feast throughout your raid especially if you die on your own on trash.

Potions[Potion of the Tol'vir]
This potion can be used once during a raid encounter instead of a health potion. This potion will maximise your DPS during burn phases and should be timed with Heroism/Bloodlust/Timewarp wherever possible to get the most benefit.

Scrolls – None
Scrolls are weak compared to other buffs and do not stack with Kings/GotW. They therefore have no use in raids.

Drums[Drums of Forgotten Kings]
If your raid does not have a Druid or a Paladin present you may wish to consider using these drums to give your raid an extra buff. However, if a druid or paladin is present these drums should not be used at all as they are inferior to the actual class buffs.


This is a full comprehensive list of the best enchants for a rogue given all the very best enchants in the game currently. Some of these may be more difficult to obtain than others.

Head: [Arcanum of Ramkahen] (Revered Ramkahen)
Shoulders: [Greater Inscription of Shattered Crystal] (Exalted Therazane)
Chest: [Peerless Stats]
Back: [Greater Critical Strike] (Mutilate, Combat) or [Major Agility] (Subtlety)
Wrists: [Greater Speed]
Hands: [Haste] (Combat, Subtlety) or [Greater Mastery] (Mutilate)
Waist: [Ebonsteel Belt Buckle]
Legs: [Dragonscale Leg Armor]
Feet: [Major Agility] or [Assassin's Step]
Weapon1: [Landslide]
Weapon2: [Landslide]

For those of you that cannot yet afford maelstrom crystals, you may wish to make the following substitutions for your enchants at the moment:

Chest: [Mighty Stats]
Back: [Major Agility]
Wrists: [Haste]
Weapon1: [Hurricane]
Weapon2: [Hurricane]

Some professions also have additional enchants that are superior to the ones shown here. Make sure you check what extra bonuses your professions give to your rogue and how you can use them to your advantage. Remember to compare EP values to find out which bonuses are worth using and which should be ignored.

    “If the proc chance of Landslide is the same (Lanslide spell doesn’t list any % chance atm), as rogue, I would go with the 2x Hurricane insted of 2x Landslide or Hurricane + Landslide. Keep in mind that Hurricane also proc from spells so is practicaly 3 vs 2 in procs. Even if it was 2 vs 2 procs (at same proc rate, duration and (lack of) ICD) Hurricane is still better, as I value more 450 haste then 1000 ap.
    From what i seen can also proc out of Deadly Poison ticks or poisons aplication done with throw weapons.
    I even have a screenshot with 3 nicely aligned Hurricane buffs on my bar at same time, and no1 else seems to have seen more the 3 instances of this buff at same time.
    Also I seen a “Vifor’s Hurricane is refreshed on Vifor.” wich makes me think (as rogue) that:
    It doesn’t have IDC atm.
    Are 3 “slots of buff” where this proc can be:
    MH weapon,
    OH weapon,
    spell proc.”

    This is a comment which i found. I’m having doubts now, so should i not use Landslide? should i be using Hurricane. Please help me out.

    Seriously the theorycrafting on this has taken into account proc rates and found that Landslide provides much more DPS than hurricane *much* more. At the end of the day, landslide wins hands down and proc rates, stat benefits and BIS have all been taken into account here already so no need to stress about it ^_^

  • If you plan to be a book heroine, this means that you must eat all the time,
    except when you’re not eating, and then you
    should be thinking about eating. Celebrity impersonations, musical gags, and
    the use of props are just some of the things that you could do
    in your routine. Whether these are taken live –
    while you are doing a real gig – or whether you have them
    done on a false stage, will depend on you.
