The War Within Beta: Rogue Talents

Rogue Talent Changes in WoW The War Within Beta | Simple Carry Rogue

  • Many talents have moved locations or have had their pathing updated.
  • New Talent: Shadowheart – Leech increased by 3% while Stealthed.
  • Acrobatic Strikes has been redesigned – Auto-attacks increase auto-attack damage and movement speed by 1% for 3 seconds, stacking up to 10%.

Developer’s Note: Acrobatic Strikes will no longer increase the range of melee attacks. We are reevaluating melee range talents across the game, and the majority are being removed. Since these talents were originally introduced, the default melee range has increased, resulting in certain specializations attacking from distances that exceed their intended range.

  • New Talent: Rapid Injection  Envenom deals 10% increased damage while Envenom’s effect is active.
  • New Talent: Sanguine Stratagem – Gain 1 additional max combo point. Your finishing moves that consume 5 or more combo points have increased effects, and your finishing moves deal 5% increased damage.
  • Serrated Bone Spike has been redesigned – (Passive) Prepare a Serrated Bone Spike every 30 seconds, stacking up to 3. Rupture spends a stack to embed a bone spike in its target:
    • Deals Physical damage and Bleed damage every 3 seconds until the target dies or leaves combat. Refunds a stack when the target dies.
    • Generates 1 combo point plus 1 additional per active bone spike.
  • Serrated Bone Spike initial damage reduced by 24% and damage over time damage reduced by 9%.
  • Improved Garrote effect duration increased to 6 seconds (was 3 seconds).
  • Indiscriminate Carnage effect duration reduced to 6 seconds (was 10 seconds).
  • Kingsbane damage bonus per poison application now has a stated cap at 1000% from 50 stacks (was 1980% at 99 stacks).
  • Kingsbane base damage over time increased by 6%.

Developer’s Note: Kingsbane was originally designed to be uncapped, but abilities and talents introduced in the Dragonflight expansion enabled players to reach its previously unattainable hidden cap. Increasing or removing this cap in the current environment would lead to undesirable gameplay outcomes and limit talent options. Therefore, a lower cap is being introduced. This change aims to ensure Kingsbane remains a valuable component of any build that includes it, without making it the indispensable centerpiece of every build.
