As a relatively new rogue (dinged 23 last night) I had no idea how to properly play the class and fell victim to many false ideas. I thought that if I wasn't using a dagger I wasn't a rogue, that sort of thing. I also attempted to backstab every fight and wasn't too sure on when to use slice and dice. After a little research in your articles I've turned over a new leaf. I found that strictly using a dagger in my main hand so that I could backstab everything really held me back and slowed me down. Now that I've begun using the best 1h's that I have available and keeping slice and dice up, I am plowing through mobs (which is nice since I had to kill like 15k spiders for that cursed ichor). I can see how backstab will be useful in the future, but as it stands now, in these low levels, it increased the time I spent on each mob and slowed the whole grind in general.
