Rogue DPS best in slot runes

Did your Rogue DPS just got some sweet epic items? Then you must rune them! Runes are consumable items that get attached to your items. Runing your items can be a bigger upgrade than getting a tier 2 raid item.

For example the Lustrous Rage Runeshard will provide you with an additional 43 attack power, and you can use up to 4! And Lustrous Deft Rune will give you +55 Dexterity on your shoulders :).

Some item slots do not have Rogue specific runes. In this case we fall back to Warrior runes, for example Lustrous Potent Rune for Strength on helmet.

These lustrous runes are expensive but remember that you can transfer them to new gear with a Rune Unsocketing Apparatus….

Tips
  • Lustrous Runes are worth +- 330 platinum
  • Sometimes Runes can be found cheaper on Auction (due to loot chests)
  • Almost all of these runes have cheap Auroral versions costing you only 10-20 platinum!
  • Rune Unsocketing Apparatus can retrieve your rune from items
  • Rune Unsocketing Apparatus can be bought in the Rift store>Services for credits
  • Players sell Rune Unsocketing Apparatus for platinum
  • Crafting dailies are a great way to gain reputation with the factions (600-1600/quest)
