My first toon (and favorite still) is a Alliance Rogue. I was a brand new player when Wrath came out and once I hit 55 I rolled a Horde DK. (To play with RL friends) Recently went back to my rogue and wonder why I left. (RL friends stopped playing).What I learned from being a rogue (as a total noob): Biggest suggestion: Do not underestimate the importance (and fun) of sapping humanoids and stealing lock boxes, it's profitable, and levels that all important lock picking skill. Lock picking makes you more useful to the group, can earn you good tips, and even give you some poisons on the way. That's the other thing: Use poison. (I prefer instant) it's worth it. And there are several talents that make it MORE worth it. Oh, and The water walking/sprint Glyph is still my favorite glyph for sheer fun and quick escapes from PVP or PVE enemies.

Wound poison does half the damage of instant, but it procs more than twice as often, thus doing more overall damage, and also adds a healing reduction debuff. While the debuff is less useful in solo/leveling content, there are some mobs that'll heal themselves if you don't kill 'em fast enough, and cutting that in half is always good.

I'll second Wound Poison. Its a noticeable jump in DPS switching from Instant Poison to Wound Poison, even without looking at Recount.

You are both totally right on the DPS. I preferred instant because I like to play with my cc. Which definitely isn't best for DPS, nor it it that much of a difference. I'll have to check it out again! I'm far from an expert on rogues. :PThanks for the GOOD criticism!
