Here’s your 101 breakdown on Naxxramas raiding strategies and consumables required for a raiding rogue.
Video version of this guide:
Checklist for your 5273 raid consumables…
Naxxramas is expensive and there are more consumables needed than any other raid in classic. I’ll be breaking down the consumables you need as we go through each boss, but I also made a handy weakaura that you can use to track the consumables in your bags as you ‘prep’ your bag for raids each week.

Watch the video above to see how to edit this weakaura if you want to customize the items/amount of items (and also turn it on/off when not in use).
What consumables do I need?
I’ll be going through the consumables needed for each boss/fight as we go, but as usual, the standard consumables are needed of course:
- Elixir of the Mongoose / Elixir of Greater Agility
- Juju Power / Elixir of Giants
- Blessed Sunfruit / Grilled Squid / Smoked Desert Dumplings
- Juju Might / Winterfall Firewater
- Zanza / Blasted Lands buffs
As far as flasks go, titans flask is still the standard flask for rogues, but be aware that you don’t want to use titans on KT because of the % hp damage.
Alright let’s get to the boss breakdowns.
The Arachnid Quarter
This is the one wing you will find a bunch of non-undead mobs. Don’t forget to swap out your Seal of the Dawn/Mark of the Champion trinket or consecrated sharpening stones here.
Overall spider wing is the easiest wing and you’re fairly safe to mostly not use consumables here if you have decent raid healers.
Note on trash: You may be assigned to kick/stun interrupt certain trash packs, particularly the ones before Faerlina – this will be up to how your guild assigns your rogues/interrupts. Try to stun ghouls at sub 50% hp as they enrage.
If you’re being extra cautious you can bring Elixir of Poison Resistance/Anti-Venom and Arcane Protection Potions here for the annoying trash (I don’t personally find them needed and I’ve never used them here).
The Plague Wing
Note on trash: Focus down gargoyles so they don’t heal.
The Deathknight Wing
Notes on trash: Run away from spinning trash or pop evasion if you don’t want to get knocked down and possibly die. Also be careful of standing in front of mobs and getting cleaved.
The Abomination Wing
Notes on trash: FAP can be useful on Golem pulls to avoid getting CC’d. You also want to make a macro to target lightning totems on the trash before patchwork.
Something like this works:
/cast Sinister Strike
No trash to clear, but be ready for tougher fights if you guild isn’t properly prepared.
