Simple reason: Swords let you attack from the front (also less energy regen necessary with SS/Evisc, moves not dependent on stuns). Finding good swords might be a chore, but it makes killing so much easier.When you're grinding levels, all you want is minimized downtime and quick kills, which swords offer.Going Combat rather than Assassination is a no-brainer for sword Rogues since there's literally nothing worth getting (unless you really love combo point generation) in the Assassination tree. Go for your crit/attack damage bonuses in Assassination and move the rest of your talents to Combat for Blade Flurry and (eventually) Adrenaline Rush greatness. Most pulls come in 2+ these levels, so Blade Flurry shines.
