how much is the ideal hit rate for sub rouge for PvP?

Warmane FTW

Nice new logo. Keep it up! Also, the WoW dropdown menu is behind the main navigation. z-index? 🙂


What about the total resiliance rating? Is there a meaningfull value?


Thanks! Thats very helpfull. I´ll try to experiment a little bit and find a good compromise 🙂


Weird question but do you think it is okay to drop Deadliness? Does it really give that much damage?

Also, what about improved Evis?


how to bite a warr 😀 !!


I have an undead rogue on Subtil , what weapons should i put on ? one dagger and axe ? one dagger and a sword ? one dagger and mace ? 2 daggers ? ?


MH slow dagger 1.8
off hand – any fast weapon 1.4 or 1.5, doesnt matter really


For Off-hand – choose a dagger with 1.4 speed. Axes and fists with 1.5 are suitable for Orcs. Apply Crippling Poison on the off-hand weapon. Apply Mind-numbing Poison on the second off-hand weapon, if you have one (you should).
