Single Targets

If you get the jump on a enemy in stealth, use Ambush as your first option

Only use to keep bleed effect on target or if you can’t get behind the target.

This will be your main attack. It’s way more efficient than Hemo, so try and stay behind target.

Slice and Dice
Apply when battle starts, and when it’s about to expire. Use 5 combo points when you can.

Keep it up at all times. You can use whatever combo points are available, but you preferably want five.

Only use when you have 5 combo points, and Slice n Dice/Rupture are already applied.


Multiple Targets

Fan of Knives
When you feel there are enough enemies, start spamming Fan of Knives.

Crimson Tempest
Only use after you get 5 combo points from FoK, then rinse and repeat.


If you’re still having trouble figuring out your Rotation, or need a more advanced one, then check out the addon I use called Edge. It will show you how to set-up your talents, what glyphs to use, and detailed rotations for leveling, pvp, and raiding.
