  • In raid situations, try to save up your adrenaline rush if you're close to fighting a boss. Adrenaline Rush and [Blade Flurry] are incredible tools for improving burst DPS. Remember to let the tank get some threat before using this, as this can easily lead to overaggroing.
  • When soloing, try to use Adrenaline Rush early on in fights — you have a much better chance to keep your target stunned and make full use of buffs at the beginning of a fight than at the conclusion. Using AR along with Blade Flurry with [Evasion] and one's favorite damage moves allows rogues to survive multiple-opponent fights that would otherwise necessitate vanishing or using sprint to retreat.
