I've heard you need to use the hide/evade macro to land it, I've heard you need to time it between server ticks, I've heard its all about spacing and strafing around and stabbing them in the side while you whip the camera around with the mouse, maybe I'm just not good enough at spinning the camera or need to adjust my sensitivity?

Could a proper rogue explain step by step the process and requirements for a solo back stab please :-)

I don't plan on soloing much on my rogue, he is part of a static quad and is an alt - But I'd like to know just incase I do need to solo something or have hate etc.
There's nothing fancy about it, just get jboots/sow pots. Move in front of mob so it turns around to hit you in the back. Then walk straight back through the mob and hit backstab, wasn't hard to land. Jboots/sow give a pretty big boost to moonwalking. May still be possible without it, but I haven't played my rogue in 4 years and always had jboots.

In my experience, even when done correctly it won't always be successful. I'd say somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of the time it works depending on the mob.

Ahh, so you walk backwards through the mob, instead of strafing around its side. Ill have to try that. I dont have Jboots on my rogue but if thats the secret I may need to pick some up. Thank you.

This makes me feel better, I think I had it work 1 time so far and I had SOW.
