Rogues are indeed pretty mathy. It's part of what makes playing rogues so interesting.Chase - two things you might also want to mention:1) Not all poisons were changed to ppm - only instant, and wound. Thus, weapon speed still impacts the replication of deadly and other poisons - faster is better for them (although since application rate does not matter for deadly after it reaches 5 stacks, it's virtually negligible).2) Slow weapons actually increase the application of instant and wound poison when the weapon is used for instant attacks due to the ppm mechanics. For example: wound is set at a 50% proc rate on a 1.4 speed weapon, and a 100% proc rate on a 2.8 speed weapon. Both weapons will generate the same number of wound poison procs over time, but an instant attack with the 2.8 speed weapon will always proc the poison, whereas an instant attack with the 1.4 speed weapon will only proc it half the time. The same would hold true for instant poison, causing rogues of every spec to favor slow weapons for their main-hands now.
