    Default The Stats an Assassin Wants in PvP?

    I think as far as knowing how to play my class goes, I'm set, but gear and reforging is a different matter. As I get new gear, the stats I used to focus on are now at their soft caps, such as MA, DPS, Haste (technically the hard cap for haste)...

    I've gotten several answers when I ask "what stats should I be going for in adornments, reforging and anything else?". Some have said CC is great, and the more the better, while others have said I shouldn't worry too much about CC and focus on Potency instead. One guy mentioned that once he's at 200 DPS, 500 MA and 100% cast speed, he goes for haste for the flurry, and another said that once you're at 200 haste, you should just go into DPS.

    I'm all sorts of confused now, as I've been told way too many conflicting things, and I haven't the slightest clue which to believe.
    Any thoughts on what stats I should go for?

    600MA, Reuse, 200 haste, 200 DPS, Cast speed, AoE auto-attack. You only need crit chance for whatever content you are doing. If you don't do high end raiding, then you do not need more crit chance than what you get from all of the current xpack instance gear. Even raiding easy content, you will not need more than 380-390? I believe. I stopped caring after I got to 420 solo.

    That list goes from most important to least important left to right respectively. IMO anyways. I am sure a high-end raiding scout will come accross this thread and add what they need to. But all of the previous tips you have been given from your original post need to be thrown out.

    Current pvp stats with my gear are as follows: 46.1% CC, 19.1% CB, 124.4% Pot, 150 MA, 424 haste -> 10% Flurry, 214 DPS -> 65% damage, 20% AE Auto, 0 ability mod, 6% accuracy, 0% strikethrough, 74.3% cast speed.

    I noticed 500 MA was a pretty good place to stop, as that is 150% in pvp, and after that it takes a lot to get very little. Anything beyond 200 DPS seems like a huge waste as well, since ~400 dps is still only 65% in PvP.

    As far as I can tell, my auto attacks are really weak and near worthless in pvp, especially when compared to my abilities. That has me wondering what I should reforge into. Flurry is really easy to get in pvp, and the only things I can think of reforging into other than that are strikethrough and ability mod, but my auto attacks are so weak it hardly seems worth it. Strikethrough would only really be useful on tanks and some scouts, and it'd take a lot of ability mod to really notice a difference.

    Cast speed/reuse or some ab mod could be made out of unneeded dps or haste or if your going for a full pvp thing some reforged health

    are we talking about pvp or BG? cause BG you want different stats than you would in PvP
    in BG you don't need anymore than 100 MA, it gets capped off kinda hard around that (600 MA in BG is ~150)
    also don't care for ability mod that much.

    I would def get 100 casting speed and as much reuse speed as you can get

    dps around 300-400 if you can
    haste around the same
    and as much potency as you can, cause potency doesn't get capped until around 110-120, but CB gets capped pretty hard throughout all and you won't ever get above 50% CB anyway, I would say once you hit around 200 (equal to around 20% in BG) you are good

    Also AE auto is pretty meh, I mean it doesn't really get capped (100 AE auto is = to 50% in BG, and 200 AE auto is 100%)

    and then if anything, recovery speed

    This is all for BG though, not PvP, but I think you meant BG since you mentioned the MA cap
