Back in the days of 3.2, like a week ago, Assassination Rogues focused on stacking as much agility as possible now you want to replace all your agility gems with AP gems. My how things have changed in a single patch. I will show you the old build and old rotation.
3.2 PVE Assassination build 51/13/7
-Stats to focus on were-
Slice and Dice
3.3 PVE Assassination build 51/18/2
-Stats to focus on-
Slice and dice
+1-5 Rupture to keep HfB up
I know what your thinking. "But agility is what Rogues are all about". Yes Rogues will always be about agility. The change to how weapon poisons work is the cause for this huge change to Rogues. Once you have a 5 stack of deadly poison your off hand will now proc instant poison in your main hand.
IP: Each strike has a chance of poisoning the enemy which instantly inflicts [300 + 0.10 * AP]
DP: Each strike has a 30% chance of poisoning the enemy for [296 + 0.12 * AP]
Go respec and buy all the AP you can.
