I'm getting ahead of myself and I am already buying a piece of armor for my level 85 rogue.Tem a new attribute called mastery rating that I find interesting. It is indicated for rogue or critical strike is better? Or even a combination of both will be a good option?

Crit is the better option if you're PvPing/PvEing as Sub.

Now if you're doing most of your combat in the Assassination spec, Mastery is better because of it increasing your poison damage where most of your damage even comes from in that tree.

Uhhh in English please?

From what.. I 'think' you're saying: "What's better, mastery or crit?"

For both combat and assassination, mastery is better that crit, while Subtlety is the only spec atm where crit actually beats mastery.

Combat's mastery is bad. Crit, Haste, Expertise and Hit are all better stats than Mastery for Combat in both PvE and PvP, although the order changes of which one is best depending on PvP or PvE. ( Expertise not as good in PvP for example )

No.. crit is worse that mastery.

Incorrect. Mastery is better than Crit for Combat by a good margin. Expertise > Haste > Spell Hit > Mastery > White Hit > Crit

Ok, then, only for PvP, I never was much of a PvE expert.

Mastery: has a chance to make your main hand swing twice, thus dealing double weapon damage occasionally for your main hand. Negligible chance that you might get a combat potency proc.


Crit: has a chance to make anything deal double damage.

Now, I don't know for PvE gear, but on the PvP gear, the amount of Crit and the amount of Mastery available are just about the same, meaning I can have 25% chance for Main Gauche or 25% chance to crit, and between the two, I'd much rather have 25% chance to crit.


Additionally, Main Gauche can break Gouge, which is very bad.

Thanks! I got it right! I like to play in the Subtlety tree! And I prefer a pvp! I'll stick with critical strike then!
