Wait.... I thought you needed a slow MH and OH dagger for big mutilate damage (does weapon damage, not weapon dps). Am I wrong about this?I suppose fast daggers would crit more often and proc poisons more often?

You've nailed it. It's a quirk of the way that poisons were buffed in 3.0. Now, you really want fast daggers for mutilate (PVE at least, I haven't followed PVP lately).And, crit, as you mentioned, is probably a factor due to Focused Attacks procs.

Basically poisons were buffed in 3.0 to scale with AP, so faster daggers with more poison procs outdoes slower daggers from a dps PVE standpoint. You don't see the burst that mut was known for though. PVP rogues still prefer the slower set up for the aforementioned burst ability.
