Leveling in combat was by far the most boring thing I've done. When I started my second rogue, I went with assassination (till relentless trikes)/sub till hemo was available, then I paid the 1g respec fee and went into fullsub. Tbh, it was significantly more fun. If I went this way before, I would of learned rogue classes allot better than that if I went with combat. Much do to the fact that this build is pretty much to the core of how a rogue will work, the timely use of cooldowns (allot of oh sh!t buttons in sub) and the reliance of openers coupled with the added bonus of improved stealth (which made those dungeon quests REALLY easy) it helped me learn my class allot better. Sure it might be a slower leveling, but it isn't that slow in comparison.It also made the battlegrounds whilst leveling a hell of allot easier (not really noticeable in the 19-29 brackets 49+ it made a huge difference).I don't raid, pvp is my thing, but even if I was aiming to raid, going combat wouldn't of really taught me much, since in raids you generally revolve around threat/rotation management which whilst leveling is non exsistant past the basics.

I agree completely.So many... FAR too many people assume that all players want to burn through to level 70. The Combat Spec might be preferable for a 70 raiding rogue, but for those of us who solo, Sub is great.
