This is a helpful article, but the problem I run into is that as an Assassination rogue, my damage is almost exclusively reliant on DOTs, rendering Blind, Gouge, and Sap effectively useless in any prolonged encounter. Situationally, Gouge can be useful for a second or two between damage ticks, but in most cases my CC is restricted to Cheap Shot and Kidney Shot. This makes "controlling my opponents" kind of limited in that sense. Any tips about this, or Assassination PvP in general?

The blind glyph removes all those "dots". It's essential for pvp!

Most people will probably disagree, but my own experience with mutilate pvp is that cc, while useful, is not as necessary as it is with sub pvp. The reason is that your key abilities (poisons, bleeds, envenom) ignore armor. Mutilate does far more damage than sub, so that, with good use of vendetta, you can usually bring your target down quicker and have less need of stuns.Of course, it only works on one opponent. You're pretty much screwed after that because you've blown your cooldowns and have limited mobility. Get the glyph of blind, as was said above. Open with cheap shot, then shiv until it breaks. Then Kidney shot, mutilate, mutilate, Rupture. Mutilate, mutilate envenom til kidney shot is available again. Repeat until they die.Even better, spec into blackjack. Sap and open with garrote. They are doing 70% less damage, it ignores armor, silences casters, and will keep rogues from stealthing for 18 secs. Can't be removed by CoS either. Shiv to build up deadly poison stacks, then KS, mutilate, mutilate rupture. As ks breaks, vanish and cheap shot, mutilate, envenom til dead.Use blind on the second guy that comes in to help your target. The one that doesn't have any dots yet. As mutilate, you can do enough damage that you really don't need it on your primary target.Like I said, most will probably disagree with me, but those tactics have worked well for me in the past.
