Fans of Knives: June 20, 2017

The much anticipated fourth raid of the expansion, Tomb of Sargeras, starts today. Stjern’s wonderful guide has been updated for 7.2.5 as have Gray_Hound’s awesome guides on Wowhead. Please note that all guides are works in progress as we figure out how the changes actually play out. Theory vs. reality, y’all:


Tomb of Sargeras will bring us a new tier set, Tier 20, Fanged Slayer’s Armor. Wowhead has the most recent changes and tweaks. Check out the updated set bonuses as well as the latest in rogue fashion:


The devs seem reasonably happy with our class; we have had only a few hotfixes:

Hotfixes: June 19:

  • Insignia of Ravenholdt should now work correctly with Toxic Blade.
  • Auctioneer Xifa should no longer evade attempted assassination for “Hiding in Plain Sight”.
  • Subtlety: PvP template Agility reduced by 5%.


Wowhead has also put together some very handy quick start guides. If you are new to rogue, are just getting started replaying your rogue, or just want to brush up, check these out:
