I just started a rogue a month or so ago and I'm loving it. I'm only 47 right now but I'm getting there. I'm interested to hear the different opinions on weapon choice. I was planning on doing dual axes (or substituting a sword if I find one with better stats) but now I hear all this praise for Backstab and I know that requires a dagger in the main hand. Im looking forward to your future installments in this series.

Luckily, at 80, pretty much any weapon choice is viable. I've talked about it before: always spec for your strongest weapons, and you'll be doing the best DPS you can do.
Hi Thrush, It really depends on what's most fun to you. Backstab loses value the higher your level, unless you go into Sub. With Sub, you would ShadowStep->Ambush->Gouge->Backstab->Evis and the mob should be dead (perhaps before the Evis even). With this, you can kill mobs without getting hit very much. But, at these levels (50+) Assassination and Combat both kill mobs faster. Through Outlands I preferred Shadowstep, but then through Northrend I preferred Mutilate.

Definitely try out Ambush/Backstab combinations if your fighting alot of clothies, its really fun to 2 shot them =) Its really waiting on the steath cooldown that slows you down then.
