Notes

Previously, rupture was a static damage finishing move that offered the same DPS no matter how many combo points were saved up -- additional combo points only extended the duration of rupture. The prevalent strategy was to gauge how many seconds left your target had to live, and to only use enough combo points to match it. However, rupture was overhauled to improve its scalability and make it a more attractive ability for end-game use.

Rupture now increases damage and duration per combo point used, for example:

  • Rupture (Rank 1) with 1 combo point will deal 40 damage over 8 seconds, which calculates to 10 damage per tick (5 damage per second)
  • Rupture (Rank 1) with 5 combo points will deal 144 damage over 16 seconds, which calculates to 18 damage per tick (9 damage per second)

A 5 combo point rupture at rank 1 is an 80% damage increase from 1 combo point, and lasts twice as long.

Rupture also factors in a percentage of your total attack power as bonus damage that is spread out over the duration of your rupture, for example: A rogue with 1000 attack power using a 5 combo point (rank 7) rupture will do 1000+240 damage over 16 seconds, which is an additional 30 damage per tick. The bonus damage from your attack power scales based on the number of combo points on the target as outlined in the damage calculation table below.

Damage Calculation Formula

The rough formula for rupture(rank 7) damage is:

1pt = Attack Power * 0.04 + 324
2pt = Attack Power * 0.10 + 460
3pt = Attack Power * 0.18 + 618
4pt = Attack Power * 0.21 + 798
5pt = Attack Power * 0.24 + 1000

an interesting side effect is the damage per tick

1pt x 4 ticks at = Attack Power * 0.01 + 81
2pt x 5 ticks at = Attack Power * 0.02 + 92
3pt x 6 ticks at = Attack Power * 0.03 + 103
4pt x 7 ticks at = Attack Power * 0.03 + 114
5pt x 8 ticks at = Attack Power * 0.03 + 125

Talent improvement

Glyphs

  • Glyph of Rupture increases the duration of rupture by four seconds, adding two more ticks to the DoT.

Tips and tactics

  • Save this for longer fights, or fights against highly-armored opponents. Don't waste combo points extending the duration for longer than the fight is likely to last.
  • Be careful of using any DoT-type attacks, as it commits you to the fight in that many Crowd Control abilities will be broken by the damage it causes.
  • The Hemorrhage talent/ability will not add damage to Rupture (or any other DoT).
  • As of patch 2.4, skeletal and non-corporeal undead (such as wraiths), elementals and mechanical creatures are now susceptible to bleed effects.
  • Works well against other rogues who may use vanish to escape, since any damage removes stealth.

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.3.3 (2010-03-23): The damage-over-time component of this ability can now produce critical strikes.
