Rogues can be identified by their weapons:Slow daggers in both hands = mutilateSlow dagger in main hand, fast dagger in off hand = combat daggersSlow/fast combo = either hemo or combat. Hemo will put up a debuff with a little red blood dot and a number ticking down. Combat will not be putting up a special debuff, though they will occationally do damage to two opponents at once. Mutilate can increase all damage done to stun-able targets. Since all rogues use poisons, what weapons they are using is the easiest way to tell them appart.Combat daggers can do steady damage, but combat anything has problems if they don't get constant dps time (on Curator's flares for instance).Mutilate offers lots of nice toys, but will have problems if something is immune to poison, they can't stand behind it or they need to switch targets. If they are working with a bear tank they may have improved expose armor.Subtlety has the best survivablity and threat mitigation (although all rogues have good threat dumps). They will have problems when something doesn't bleed, and sustained damage with no external factors will be lower than combat (by probably 30-50 dps of an equally geared combat rogue). Hemorrhage gives a base boost to all physical damage, just like a +weapon damage enchant. They are able to evasion for 30 seconds, which can allow them to hold something that is expected to die fast while the tanks lock down aggro on the next target.
