Fans of Knives: January 2, 2018

Happy New Year rogues!

This year we are starting out with an Infexious video about another Assassination “bug” which potentially pushes Assassination to the top of the damage charts:


Speaking of Assassination, Skwiggle has a new guide to complete his rogue set. If you have enjoyed his Subtlety and Outlaw guides the last couple of weeks, check out his Assassination guide:


And good news for fans of ShadowCraft! Tamen and Aeriwen have been hard at work and Tamen has announced their UI upgrades on the ShadowCraft Discord channel:

I'm happy to announce something that @Aeriwen and I have been working on for the past year. The UI of Shadowcraft has gotten a complete rewrite basically from scratch, throwing away all of the years of cruft from the old code and starting over fresh with newer technology (no more Coffeescript! now with React!). It's currently the same UI look as before, but with considerably better tech backing it. This should allow us to more easily make changes to the UI and support new features (stack rankings for the gear picker? Azerite calculator when 8.0 lands?) Next up on the block is a bunch of rework of the engine, bringing performance improvements and more features as well.
As always, if you find bugs or something not working (except outlaw, which is still broken) let us know.

If you would like to check out the Discord, you can join here:


Also, Ravenholdt tees and more are still available. If you didn’t get one for Winter Veil, grab one now:
