Rogues are solid dps. Also, if you have another solid dps they get a 15% boost every 30sec (tricks of the trade).

Solid DPS rogues may be, but who isn't these days? Tank classes like Warriors, Paladins, Bears, and Death Knights are pumping out some mad DPS these days. Heck my goal is just to stay above the tank on the DPS charts and that is hard to do. Rogues are amazing single target DPS class, but thats where they fall short. No group utility. If Blizzard were to give rogues a skill that every time they crit the raid got a haste buff or something. Now that would makes rogues waaay more attractive in a raid.

"Now that would makes rogues waaay more attractive in a raid."They already have that. See 'master poisoner' and 'savage combat'.

Like what has been stated. Rogues are truly solid DPS. There stuns and interrupts are priceless. They can save the healers, they can save the squishies and still put out some crazy DPS. Most rogues I play with are top notch, I don't know any reason I wouldn't play with them. AOEers might do more damage overall but they are also doing less single target DPS. Since most pulls always have that one mob with like...twice the HP of the others, having a a rogue always helps if everyone else is AOEing. I prefer fast target markings and single target burns because they tend to go ALOT smother then most AOE groups. No unneeded wipes, Mage or healer getting gibbed because of aggro, or stopping every couple of pulls for everyone to mana up.PS: Rogues will have some decent AOE damage with the upcoming patch. Adrenaline Rush + Fan of knifes + Dagger = Can someone rez the rogue please?
