Rotation

Use Potion
We start the fight with an Ambush, but using Vanish during the fight to get more Ambushes does not increase damage, so Vanish is not a part of the DPS rotation.
Use Potion: Use your potion with Adrenaline Rush
Use Racial Active Buff: Use Racial Buffs with Adrenaline Rush
Use Trinkets: Try to use buff trinkets during Adrenaline Rush
Save for 2+ targets if it won't be ready again in time
At 5+ Combo Points, if you only have one buff, you want Ruthless Precision or Grand Melee. Otherwise re-roll for 2+ buffs.
At 5+ Combo Points, roll if you have less than 3 seconds left on your buffs. If you only have one buff, roll anytime you have less than 10 seconds left on the buff.
At 4+ Combo Points if you don't have the Deadshot buff
At 5+ Combo Points. Ace up Your Sleeve makes it always worth prioritizing Between the Eyes.
At 5+ Combo Points
Only with Opportunity procs. If you don't have Broadsides, use when you need at least 2 Combo Point. With Broadsides up, use when you need at least 3 Combo Points.
Against a single target use Killing Spree when you don't have energy for Sinister Strike. Save for AoE if it won't cool down again in time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this Guide useful?
The goal of our guides is to show you the overall "optimal" options for building your character. If you do not wish to dig through walls of text then you may like our visual "cut to the chase" approach.
Where do you get this data from?
We use algorithms to parse big data chunks from Top 1% players from Arena and RBG leaderboards using the official Blizzard API. We believe that statistics is a very reliable method for determining solid choices for end-game optimization.
