Nice Article.Which 2 heirloom weapon combination would be recommended for these levels? Which spec would they fit it better? I'm just learning to play a rogue as I level, but so far it's been, like the article says, playing a dual wielding warrior. I got my fully heirloom-loaded gnome (shoulders, chest, weaps, bow, trinkets) rogue sitting at 52 and would like to take him out for some leveling sometime soon :DCurrently have 2 Balanced Heartseekers (daggers) with +15 agility each, should I switch any of them for the other heirlooms (Venerable Dal'Rend's Sacred Charge (sword) or Venerable Mass of McGowan (mace))? I'm open to trying out any spec suggestions at this point. Also, how good is haste? I've been using a couple of Swift Hand of Justice trinkets, but only because I didn't have anything else to fill those slots and the 2% x2 heals per kill are pretty good.

If you want to level assassination, stick with the Heartseekers, though once you get to 80 you'll want a faster offhand dagger than that. If you want to level combat, I'd favor the stats on the Venerable Mass of McGowan over Dal'Rend's, but it's your call.Haste is nice, especially for combat, crit's a bit better for assassination builds. Haven't dealt enough with subtlety builds to give much of an opinion. Personally, I leveled combat, and raided as combat up until ToC, but due to random luck with daggers dropping over axes, I've switch to assassination recently and been really enjoying it, so it's up to you on which you want to use.
