Personally, I did not find the HfB rotation to be too difficult to keep up or annoying. For me it is much more enjoyable than the constant SS/SnD/Rupture spam that is combat. I used an addon (NeetToKnow) to easily track stacks and time remaining for HfB.I found that over time I began to intuitively know when it needed to be refreshed. I have since switched to combat (due to a lack of dagger drops) and for several days found myself reaching for my old hunger for blood button every 27 seconds. If I can get daggers that come close to comparing to my current weapons I will go back to assasination and the current HfB rotation in a heartbeat.~Jayc

Typo in that last post. The addon I use is called "NeedToKnow". It is great for tracking any buffs or debuffs on you, your target or your focus. On my rogue I use it for tracking the following: Slice and Dice, Hunger for Blood, Rupture, poison stacks and trinket procs.The bars are nicely customizable and easy to read. Since I started using it, it has become pretty invaluable to me on most of my alts.~Jayc

I use IceHUD for tracking my SnD, Combo Points, and Hunger for Blood. The bars make it easy to track the stacks and duration visualy.Only problem is, when I spec for PvP I throw Prep on the same hot key my HfB was on....and I end up blowing a 10 min cooldown when I'm at the mailbox or something out of habit.

I haven't tried HfB yet but I do want to add that NeedToKnow is a great addon. You can also setup icons to let you know if your main and off hand weapons are not buffed (AKA Poisons are down) or if you are missing any buffs.

@ coldbear.Slice and DiceRuptureHunger for BloodExpose ArmorDeadly PoisonOh, and MDing to the tank (Or boosting the fury warriors DPS) on cooldown, and popping a disarm on cooldown too.And QQ about the button on a 20 minute cooldown that can get you a raid invite over a rogue in many guilds.

Hey, I just thought Jayc might want to know, that there is a blue BoE dagger you can duel-wield, Librarian's Paper Cutter (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37856), that is better than any dagger for mutilate until Naxx-10 trash drops, and even then, those are only a few DPS more.Hope that helps.

@feistplease. most rogues rarely use expose armor in pve raid situations. The only time in my 4years of playing that I've even seen them think to do it is in the Instructor Raz fight since the understudies are doing the tanking and there isn't a sunder stack up as frequently as a result.

@Feist:Rogues rarely use expose armor.Cut to the Chase refreshes Slice and Dice.Deadly Poison is automatic.So your list boils down to:RuptureHunger for Blood.Whoop dee doo.

I love how every class thinks their rotation is the hardest.Actually, keeping up all those things is hard because half the time you don't have the energy or combo points to do it. it costs 60 energy to mutilate and it may or may not crit so you may or may not get 3 cp.plus if you happend to drop snd or hfb ur pretty much effed so yeah I'd say it's hard. Unless you've actually raided as a mut rogue don't open your mouth.
