Okay, Jellycat, I've got the okay to bring you in for a trial run next Tuesday night! Just a reminder, we raid from 7pm to 11pm server time. Please make sure to have consumables such as Food, Potions, and Flasks. And while we will be comparing your DPS to other rogues of similar gear level, please show us how aware/knowledgeable you are of encounter mechanics and your surroundings. The only bosses we haven't killed yet are Tyrant Velhari, Mannoroth, and Archimonde.

Sorry about not much information Talz, I was a bit slow checking new applicants despite Wind poking me. I'd like if you could work on the new Tanaan Jungle a bit more, get at least 650 in all your gear slots, you are quite behind to be able to hop into the new raid with us right now. Your spec is a bit outdated as well, I will talk to other officers about an invite to help you maybe have somewhere to chat/ask questions but as far as raiding you need to put a bit more work in.

The new zone lets you get 650-655 in all slots with ability to proc 675 or buy a token to make then 695, as well as 705 drops from Supreme Lord Kazzak and the new LFR. Try to flesh out your gear more - remember that the stat priority when looking for upgrades for Prot is Bonus Armor (neck/cloak/rings/trinkets) > Haste > Mastery > Crit/Versatilty/Multistrike. If you go with Empowered Seals you can stop haste at around 1300 to focus more on mastery (it'll be 50% in raid, the "soft cap").

Also glad to see you have a Ret spec, there isn't really a fight in game where you need 3 tanks consistently so very often you'll be an odd-man out and need to dps. We try to rotate who does what but some people prefer one spec to another. We are almost mostly focusing on getting a few classes and Paladin is lower on the priority list.

Anyway - try to talk to an officer next time you're on (Windfuri, Rhivath, Onikuma, Darmuth, Austin) and we can talk more. But right now you need to work on your gear/spec/enchants :)

Yeah, I hate blowing money on enchants especially if I'm not in a solid raiding guild.  If I was accepted, I would pretty much enchant everything I could in order to pump out as much dps as possible.

As for WHAT enchantments I use; pretty much follow that to a T unless I'm notified that something is better. 

If you want me another spec, I can start gearing for it, I will usually go for assassination gear in places that I don't need any Combat gear from.

I took Nightstalker for utility as I don't hard core raid.  If I did, I would change it to either of the others as one gives a .1% dps increase and the other a .5% increase.

I didnt take burst of speed, I use Shadowstep :P

Leaching poison seemed to be the lesser of two evils in that tier specifically because I'm not raiding. 

Honestly, I havent tried Venom Rush, I think ill switch it now and see how it goes.

Single target DPS rotation:  Open with an Ambush > Revealing Strike > Sinister Strike to 5 combo > Slice and Dice > (if up) Adrenaline Rush + Shadow Reflection > Sinister strike to 5 combo > Eviscerate (repeat until AR and SR end) > at this time you should have to reapply Revealing and Slice and Dice > as long as Revealing and SnD are up sinister strike to 5 combo Eviscerates >  Vanish and Ambush again on cooldown. 

2 Target rotation:  Replace Eviscerate with Crimson Tempest

3+ Target rotation: Activate Blade Flurry > Ambush > Revealing > Sinister to 5 > SnD > Killing Spree > Once Killing Spree ends use Adrenalin rush > Sinister to 5 > Crimson Tempest > Sinister to 5 > If crimson tempest is still up, 5 point Eviscerate, if CT is down reapply > Sinister Strike to 5 combo and repeat. 

I use Icy - Veins and AskMrRobot.  Also I'm not above taking advice from people, it's always welcome.

I'm guessing from the ilvl of the gear that you've got, you're holding out on enchanting gear until you've got items that are likely to last you a while. When you do enchant your gear, which enchants do you plan to use? Also, do you plan to try to gear purely for combat, or in such a way as to more easily switch specs if needed (if so, how?)?

First, have you considered combo'ing Shadow Focus with your Glyph of Disappearance? An almost free ambush at the beginning and every minute into a fight seems pretty nice. Is there any particular reason you decided to take Burst of Speed instead of Shadowstep, or Leeching Poison instead of either Cheat Death or Elusiveness? Also, you might want to consider using Marked for Death for boss fights with multiple targets or AoE. Additionally, have you considered using Venom Rush instead of Shadow Reflection due to Combat's high reliance on Energy generation?

Additional Questions
Can you state both the single target and multiple target rotations for me?

What resources do you use for researching how to gear/perform your best as a rogue?

I know all specs, I like playing Combat, and the first one is my raiding spec.  I don't mind playing other spec's at all, just prefer combat.  Was assassination and sub in MoP.

Which of your two combat specs is your raiding spec? Also, are you open to learning another spec if needed?
