Hmm, I dont agree with your Combat swords build. Improved gouge?I would rather use those three points in dodge. I dont know how many times that has saved me from a cleave, which would tax the healers even more. Imrproved kick?Useless, if you are on an interrupt assignment, your regular kick should suffice. Most raid level bosses are immune to silence anyway. Put one point in Nerves of steel, I know its seems like a waste, but, being able to resist low level mob fears is good, IMO. You don't run into another group of mobs and doom the raid to death. Also keep the cleanser of the raid off your back.Lethality.Put 2 points in that, it has been proved mathematically that is it useless. Take points out of Vile poisons put 5 points in imp poisons. Why? What good is extra poison damage if you arent applying it. I would rather have 5 stacks ticking off damage, than doing extra damage. Put two in remorseless. I do very little Evis in raids, if you do, then put them in Imp evis. I like remorseless though, cause it can proc off any thing the raid kill during trash pulls.Im sure people will find fault with my build though. Take it or leave it. Look for Mihn on Kael Thas, to see my build.

Agreed on Gouge and Improved Kick; I have never found those abilities to be very useful. Speaking as a gnome rogue, with Escape Artist, the Improved Sprint is also usually a waste of a couple of points. I likewise like to put the extra three points into Lightning Reflexes. Ideally you won't be getting hit in a raid, but it's generally a more useful soloing tool than Improved Gouge, at least outside of a stunluck build or something. I barely ever need to gouge while farming or soloing, and if I do it's usually to interrupt spellcasting when my other cooldowns aren't up, so the extra seconds do nothing for me.

His combat spec is just about the best raiding dps spec there is. Drop a point in the combat tree and add 4/5 vile poisons and its the best. With Deadly poison on your OH, you should have no problem keeping up the stack.
