It's possible that in Wrath rogue crit will reach a point, through enchants/elixirs/glyphs/gems that combat daggers may replace combat swords again. I mean if we're constantly running, fully raid buffed, at 60% crit then we may outpace the white damage of combat swords.I haven't done any math and have no idea if that's possible, but I'm assuming that if rogues could get their crit high enough then it would make for the best raid damage.Shoot, I'm sure 50-60% is possible now with gemming and certain trinket use. For limited bursts.Everything will depend on the stats blizz chooses to place on the level 80 raid tier gear. If it's crit heavy then we'll have more of an idea. If they continue the armor penetration mechanic we'll see how it all shakes out.Rogues still have a major character revision coming some time in the future so nothing is known for sure yet.I'm gonna start collecting daggers again though.

60% crit? no.Before BC came out, rogues ran around with about 25-30% crit, depending.Right before BC came out, Blizzard introduced new scaling. This is so they could put gear out there that had much better stats, without percentage based stats, such as melee or spell crit, reaching nearly 100%. So you'll notice, it took about 20 agility to gain 1% crit at level 60, now it takes about 40 agility. Expect to see this again...unless you think that tanks with 100% dodge is balanced....

To the commenter above me: I regularly hit 50-54% crit while fighting the humanoid trash on M'uru. I'll happily post a SS on our M'uru kill this week if you'd like.
