Assassin Rotations

For a Sith assassin to do maximum damage in a fight they have to know what skills to use and when. The order skills are used is known as a rotation. Most rotations are not strict but are dependant on what is going on in a fight. For instance if are low on rage you will want to use a rage building skill like Battering Assault to get back rage but not off of cooldown you may have to use Assault.

Below I list rotations that should help you increase your PVE DPS. Please contact me if there is something you want to add or if the information I am listed is not accurate :)
