    Default high priest - build for killing adds and priest

    hi all folks
    -said that i'm decently geared with eternal-
    just looking for an optimal build/strat for Optimizing the high priest fight.
    that's to say: as a rogue, am i supposed to kill all the adds? if so, i've seen some videos of rogues doing >2.5M on adds - i'm actually trying the NB/SAB but seems not to reach that much - which build shall i use?? maybe BD?
    am i forced (or even worth) to sacrifice all the ST dps on boss for this phase?
    am i forced to play melee in this fight?
    thanks a lot for the support!!

    Most of the rogues in my raid team run NB/Sab on Priest. They do often hit 2.5 mil when we do 4 adds. To get the most out of the spec you should be in melee except when it's necessary to spread out. Hope that helps.

    If your using the basic 1 button spam macro from the guides you need to watch some cooldowns. You want to have living flame and hellfire blades available for the adds. You can make a separate macro to use towards the end of phase 1 to save these. The 54NB/sab is what I use and haven't had anything better for st and aoe for the adds. Ive tried most variations.

    As a best practice, always watch your charges and manage as best you can to avoid running out them when they are needed.

    The finisher is the only skill required to be in melee. You need to be within 7m for your aoe procs.

    NB/SAB has always been superior with Brutish Crystal over Martial Crystal.
    Martial Crystal is still better for 61NB though.
