This is being actively discussed in another thread - as in, within the last few days. I realize that the information can be hard to find if it's a few weeks or months old, but when it's all from within the last few days? I have no sympathy.
I was wondering is there any feasability in doing a 5 point Evicserate instead of a 5 point Rupture in your rotation with Slice and Dice. I am talking about combat rogue (Fist/dagger 15/51/5) changing 2 points from blood spatter to improved eviscerate, and finding a third point from another place. I am not sure what the best place to take that 3rd point from or whether to leave it at 2 points. How much damage does rupture do with that spec as opposed to what eviscerate would do. Is there any advantage to doing damage up front as opposed to overtime. I just noticed that at the end of some boss fights if I think rupture will not have enough time to go the distance I will use eviscerate. Some of these fights do not end as quick as I thought they would and I end up doing a few eviscerates instead of just one. In these instances I have noticed my name go up higher on the damage meter than it currently was. I know this has probably been discussed before, but it is not always easy to find the information because there is so much on this website.
