Hit is no more an important stat than any other, while it effects every other stat and is valued much higher there's no magical number you need to hit to be viable. I'm in all T6 and my hit's at 239 unbuffed. Since my attack power is almost 2k and my crit is around 32% (again unbuffed) having such a 'low' hit doesn't make that big of a difference in my DPS. I still beat out almost every other class.http://elitistjerks.com/f31/t16940-roguecraft_101_a/If you're going for DPS the only viable build right now is combat, since they nerfed Hemo time and time again Combat is the best. Daggers should be a rogues last choice, they don't do nearly as much DPS. This is even more true in the higher gears.

This man speaks the truth. There is a common misconception that t4 is inherently better then t5 because t5 is loaded with crit and ap while t4 is chock full off hit. This of course is flat out wrong. With the proper gear and gem selection it's not hard to get 200+ hit. Essentially don't gimp your other stats for just hit. Personally I find that it starts giving diminishing returns around 250+. According to reccount* I never miss more then 20 swings + specials during a boss fight and I think I have something around 283 hit.*I have no idea how accurate reccount is. I was actually quite surprised when I saw such a low number myself.

Daggers don't nearly do as much dps? While I'm swords and prefer them, well played daggers can be competitive. Did you read the article you linked? As you get into T5 & T6 the gap widens but when you start raiding you shouldn't pass on the relatively common daggers available to you if your swords are inferior.Relative damage (assuming Tier 4 gear)Combat swords (--)Combat fist+sword (-0.12%)Combat daggers (-0.51%)

While I see your point, I wish it weren't true....I really want to be viable in a raid as a sneaky, shadowstepping, dagger weilding rogue....The persona of silent stealthy thief is what attracts me to the class, and I've found that Sub really fits my play style...It's never a good sign when the disclaimer at the beginning of an article says that the advice they have is going to make a game less fun to play...:(I know it was mentioned, but in a nice size group, couldn't a Hemo paired with other DPS be enough of a boost to justify it?Meh, maybe I'll just stay out of raids...I hear there's nice gear in the PvP side of things too...
