Ok, first off, unless you are Combat and using it anyways, why exactly do you need Wound Poison for Freya? If people are killing the trees, she barely heals at all. No reason to gimp your damage for sure.Secondly, never, ever, ever try to cloak through Shock Blast. Cloak of Shadows only has a 90% success rate. You fall into that 10% one time and you die instantly. It's not worth it when the thing is easy as hell to run out of. If need be, save cloak to run through mines when no paths are open, but usually there are free paths if you look ahead of time.Third, the Rocket Blast will only *prefer* ranged targets in 3.1.3. That doesn't mean it can't target Rogues. Don't get sloppy because you assume you are off the hook.

I'm curious about this Freya comment. Let's say you're doing 10 man Ulduar, and all of the adds are down. Freya's Touch of Eonar continues to do 6k healing a second, correct? (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=62892) If you are using wound poison and her healing is reduced by half, isn't that the equivalent of 3k dps? I'd think that would be enough to warrant replacing instant poison with wound poison as an assassination rogue.Definitely a good point about the Cloak of Shadows only being 90%. I came to this realization when attempting to be lazy and not run away from Emalon. =)

That's correct, moving to WP provides a significant amount of "RDPS" in a way, even more key on 25m where the healing is higher. Also, when doing an achievement attempt, Freya's healing makes the enrage timer non-trivial.I have to agree on the CoS issue though, there's a difference between using it to resist "some" damage and using it to save your life: remember that it's only 90%!!
