I want to take issue with your statement about weapons. OH weapon is primarily about applying poisons, hence the fast speed...more chance to miss before hit capped, therefore more hits/fight > less hits per fight.High damage weapons = slower weapons unless you are lucky enough to drop a world/instance rare or epic that is several levels above your current weapon.Generally, telling a new rogue slow main fast off will achieve what you want (ie max damage) without confusing them as to the principles of maxing output.

also if specced in combat (can't remember the talent) energy is gained for each offhand hit

I agree, also if you are heavy combat you will have combat potency (eventually), using this talent to its fullest is really essential for DPS. At lower levels though when you are relying on SS to pump out the damage and you don't even have poisons, let alone Combat Potency, then damage range > weapon speed

Later in the comment they mention the SM and RFK swords, which are:-nicer than just about anything for that level-guaranteed to drop for you because they're quest reward items (why waste your time running a dungeon over and over to get that special rare weapon, get out there and level!)-both are the same melee stats (damage & speed) with slightly different bonus statsIt's the last one where min/maxers get all flustered about. Both of these weapons are great and will last a combat swords rogue a very long time. At 46, I got rid of one and got the Rune sword of the monkey (same DPS, 1.6 speed, +6 AGI +5 Stam). I still need to get a Maura group to get my Thrash blade
