Someone tell blizzard that just because they add new daggers to the game doesn't mean dagger spec is worth a damn. Seriously, these daggers would have to be 200dps to compete with swords/maces in pve or pvp. Yet, no tweaks to dagger talents. fail.

if you believe this to be true then you don't know how daggers are played.

For PvE trash clearing I would agree with you...Daggers just don't "cut" it, However on the longer boss fights, I tend to do just fine...Frequently making it to the top 1 or 2 in DPS. I have become known in my guild as one the TOP DPS'rs.I've been playing Rogue for almost 3 years, And I will agree that swords generally produces better results in a Raid...I'm living proof that when played CORRECTLY a dagger spec'd Rogue can easily be on par with any other damage dealer in the Raid.Abscynth, Lvl 70 Combat Dagger Rogue

In all of this spec debate, there is not much mention of the fact that daggers is a much more roguely spec, lore-wise. That's important to me, but I'm the sort of person that won't equip a head slot item unless it conceals my toon's face. It's not all about the maths.My experience as a tier 4 combat dagger rogue, running with very similarly geared combat swords rogues, is that they have the edge on trash (because they don't need to be behind to max their damage) and daggers have the edge on bosses (where everyone is behind). Total raid DPS is probably in favour of the swords, but boss DPS is what counts to prevent wipes and enrages and there I'd strongly disagree with anyone who says daggers don't cut it.
