I see, so basically it's poisoning for trash, then you switch to something else for bosses.Is Instant MH and Deadly OH more DPS with just 3/3 Vile Poisons, or do you also need 5/5 Improved Poisons? And is that better than Deadly/Deadly?

You need to have 5/5 Improved Poisons before Instant Poison becomes viable. Because Vile Poisons increases damage of ALL poison, it doesn't change which poison is better. You use Instant / Deadly because the Deadly Poison provides you with a poison debuff and allows you to Envenom. You will proc Deadly Poison often enough to maintain a 5 stack at most times, which means running Deadly/Deadly will waste a ton of Deadly procs and lose all Instant Poison damage.Instant Poison trumps Deadly. Some Rogues used to use Instant/Instant and have another Rogue or Hunter apply a poison debuff for them, and they'd just use Eviscerate. It was actually top DPS for a while. With the 2pc T9 bonus and the recently buffed Deadly Poison, this is no longer the case.
