    I like combat the best because it lets you get more damage.

    Combat spec is excellent for raiding, and for killing large groups of mobs very quickly. However, it doesn't support very much utility, which I personally find more useful than sheer damage.

    My current Rogue build is mostly Subtlety, but NOT dagger spec. Talents for improved Sap, increased stealthing, extra combo points, decreased cost of Cheap Shot and Garrote, a percent chance to negate damage from AoEs, and of course the always-useful Preparation make him extremely useful in a variety of situations. My personal favorite is the talent that gives a percent chance to simply ignore any damage that would normally kill you. It's great for when that Mage manages to blink away, charges up a Pyroblast and you simply shrug it off and kill him anyways.

    This build also has plenty of increased damage, however, as is typical of most Subtlety builds, it is mostly burst DPS dealt within the first 10 seconds or so of the opening attack.

    If you're interested, I can give you exact numbers.

    Rogues have to choose between whether they want to inflict a large amount of damage up front (burst) or steadily over time.



    Burst damage builds tend to be effective in PvP, whilst a rogue that can continue inflicting damage over a longer duration fight will be more useful in a PvE group. PvP builds put points into subtlety and assassination, whilst a PvE build may mix combat and assassination and ignore the subtlety tree entirely.

    its nice to have a hard hittin' combat rogue..i love when i see the fright in my foes eyes when i strike back at him and surely i'll own him..

    you just have to a strategist to be one of this..but a combat rogues does not have a high defense and a high hp like warrior..but if you dress your character the best you can fight face to face with a protection warrior...i love a fast DPS and a high damaging characters.

    Here is a potential build for you focusing on the Subtlety tree:

    http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=fhZGLobbZEMecG0o0xst



    I personally would start with the Combat tree:



    Put your points into Improved Sinister Strike and then Improved Eviscerate first and then travel down the Combat tree to get the Endurance and Improved Sprint.

     

    Now that you have your bread and butter (SS spamming and heavy hitting Eviscerate)

    OK my build as a lvl 60 Rogue and is perfectly made for my way of gaming, 30/8/13 pure dmg build ;D and works fine as an MC build too, and just for the record, I hate ppl that say "you damn noobs rogue suck and I´m a <insert class> and I kill all rogues easy since I´m the best and know the most" Well imo it´s only small spoilt brats and retards that think they´re something, that say stuff like that, since it´s not you that decide if you´re good or not, it´s up too others too decide, and REAL good gamers don´t have too say they´re PRO, just watch how they play and you´ll know ;)

    im going for more on assasination talents...and follow my talent set up above...i'll sure you'll enjoy..
  • CruxialeCruxiale Member Posts: 1

    10/0/41 Subtely is the best for sure. This spec allows you to do an extreme amount of damage before your target even touches you. Go dagger sub spec, with the new shadow step you can basically teleport behind your enemy while stealthed and it improves your crit chance. I crit every time with it usual in the 2-3k range on casters.
