Welcome to Wowhead's guide to Adapting to Battle for Azeroth's pre-patch guide as a Assassination Rogue. Patch 8.0 brings a lot of changes from BFA to the world of Azeroth and this guide is made to make sure you are prepared for all upcoming changes. This guide gives you an overview of all the changes happening with patch 8.0 for Assassination Rogue.
This pre-patch page is intended to help you know the changes to Assassination Rogue during the pre-patch. Note that during pre-patch, while artifacts no longer work, we do not have our azerite powers yet, meaning this isn't the final picture for specs in BFA. However, we still retain the powers from legendaries, which will continue working up to level 115, creating some interesting situations, as some effects from legendaries became baseline effects or talents in BFA.
On our other guide pages, including Rotations, Talents & Builds, and Stat Priorities, you will find detailed recommendations on how to play your Assassination Rogue, accounting for the changes shown here, during the 8.0 BFA pre-patch.
Our guides are always updated with the latest information from in-game experiences and both simulations and logs, make sure to check our changelog to this page, by clicking on View Changelog at the top of the page. If you are interested into more in-depth informations about Assassination Rogue in Battle for Azeroth (BFA), make sure to browse our Navigation Bar below and our list of Related Guides just beneath the Table of Contents.

Core Changes to Assassination Rogues

Key Changes

Abilities/Talents Removed

Abilities/Talents Added

Changes to playstyle

Overall, the playstyle doesn’t change much, none of the talents that got removed were actively chosen in PvE, so they don’t particularly affect anything.
When it comes to artifact getting removed, we will end up losing 1 of our “Cooldown”s in the form of (Заклинание #192759), we will also lose (Заклинание #192349) which will move (Заклинание #79140) back to stable 2 minutes, making it always synchronize with (Заклинание #1856). In addition, we can notice the loss of (Заклинание #238102), removing (Заклинание #185311)’s ability to be used as a pre-emptive CD, and we no longer get (Заклинание #255544) baseline.
Now, we do have a few new talents, and re-shuffling of previous ones, that opens up room for new combinations :
Finally, tier 100 talents are all re-worked into AoE focused (albeit with some ST focus) :

War Mode

Another change from Legion into BFA is the addition of War Mode. War Mode is a new World PvP system in the Battle for Azeroth pre-patch, along with the new Honor system and Honor Talents. You are now able to toggle War Mode while in a capital city to gain access to PvP Talents in the outdoor world as well as other bonuses, like increased rewards from World quests and 10% extra experience. The downside is that you will always be in PvP combat mode, with the rewards counterbalancing that risk.

Changes to the Global Cooldown (GCD) for Assassination Rogues

The Global Cooldown, or GCD, is a short lockout period which controls the rate with which abilities can be used; spells that are on the GCD are unable to be used simultaneously, while only abilities off the GCD can be used at the same time or during that lockout period. The global cooldown starts at 1.0 second for energy resource classes, and 1.5 seconds divided by haste for all others.
In Battle for Azeroth, many abilities which used to be off the GCD are now controlled by it. For Assassination Rogues the abilities affected by this change are:
The GCD change doesn’t affect assassination too much, as our (Заклинание #79140) cooldown is only used once every 2 minutes.

Returning Legendary and Artifact Effects

In Battle for Azeroth, many old artifact traits and legendary effects from Legion were turned into talents and baseline abilities. It is known that we will lose our Artifacts in a future event. To add to that, Legion legendaries will stop working at level 116. To learn more, check out our full article about returning effects in Battle for Azeroth.
For Assassination Rogues the returning effects are:
