Fans of Knives: December 5, 2017

Antorus, the Burning Throne has been open on Normal and Heroic for a week now. Today Mythic and Raid Finder Wing 1 will open and, as promised, a tuning adjustment  is included in today’s maintenance:

Hotfixes: December 5

  • Assassination: Regalia of the Dashing Scoundrel 4-piece – Your Deadly or Wound Poison critical strike now generate 3 Energy (was 2 Energy).
  • Outlaw: All damage abilities increased by 4%.
  • Subtlety: Regalia of the Dashing Scoundrel 4-piece – Backstab and Shadowstrike now have a 4% chance (was 3%) to grant Shadow Gestures.

This is in addition to the little PvP Hotfix that we got last week:

  • Assassination: Flying Daggers increases the radius of Fan of Knives by 50% (was 100%).


We are very excited to announce that our theorycrafting community has been so successful that they are expanding into providing simulation results for every spec in the game. To this end, all sims are relocating to a new site called Hero Damage. You can still access the rogue sims from the link in the Ravenholdt navigation. If you are used to using the Ravenholdt Theroycrafting URL, that will now take you to Hero Damage. Aethys explains here:

Huge props to Aethys and Mystler for providing us with this fantastic service.


Infexious has been busy clearing Antorus, the Burning Throne and is creating boss guides for us. Check them out to see his recommendations for the first few bosses. More to come:


And finally, for those of you who may have missed them before, would like more, or need a Winterveil gift for your favorite rogue, our Ravenholdt t-shirts, hoodies, tanks, and mugs are available again:
