Gouge is a nice spell interrupt that doesn't get used nearly enough in my opinion. Even if a mob is ticking poisons or taking constant damage, if your kick is on cooldown and no other classes are using interrupts, pop your gouge to reset the cast bar. This has the benefit of giving you and others time for your spell lockdown skills (kick for ex.) to finish their cooldown.This does require you to be facing the mob, which can be a bit of a problem for positional skills such as backstab. You don't actually have to be directly behind a mob to backstab though, just be a bit more towards the back than the side of the mob. I just strafe a bit in the event that i'm running with a tank that doesn't know how to shield bash >.>It does require a bit of practice (and of course, low lag issues) to get down and you will occasionally get smacked with a cleave until you've got a good grasp of the positioning.Of course, if you're not using daggers, positioning isn't really an issue:)More to the point of the article, getting to 10 is always a bit painful for me as a rogue; once you get dual wield, life is much easier. The alliance poison quest is much less painful than the Horde version too; it's well named:)_
