played rogue/mage season 5 and did terrible.playing rogue/priest season 6 and doing much better.Between the pally bubble + DK anti-magic they are VERY difficult to beat with rogue/mage. I think we beat one pair all season. And I explain that as either a) they were noobsb) lagc) they were wearing greensd) all of the aboveBut with rogue/priest its just fear/blind the DK and burn down the pally (mass dispell the bubble).For poisons I run with WP/WP (with Deadly Brew to also apply cripple). WP does tons of damage, and has mortal strike effect. The lack of a DOT means I can blind/gouge w/o breaking my own CC. My PVP spec eschews Improved Poisons.The other advantage of pairing with a priest over mage or 2nd rogue is the heal/shields. Since the battles last more than a few seconds you have time to recover from a mistake.I was never good enough or fast enough to truly exploit the lightning play necessary to succeed with 2xDPS.And finally IMO fear is better than poly.You can apply damage to feared targets.There are AoE fears.Fear causes melee to run away giving my priest positional control. And now for the note to rogues that made me post this in the first place:Get good daggers!You need two slow iLvl 200+ daggers for PVP mutilate spec to really work.Here's a couple of easy places even non-raiders like me can get them:1. Blacksmiths made Titansteel Shanker (or buy from the AH)2. Argent Tourney (it's time to grind some badges) Alliance - Dagger of the Rising Moon Horde - Spinal DestoyerWhat's the big deal about weapons?Mutilate DPS is a function of how hard your daggers hit. If you're all about maximizing your DP and energy regen with your librarian's paper cutters then that's fine for PVE but it doesn't cut it (ha ha) for PVP.Get some hard hitting daggers and revel in your new found power.
