I've heard a lot of arguements for Armor Pen or geming Agility or Gemming attack power or even gemming for hit and expertise. Small amounts of the information are helpful, a lot of others not so much. I personally, Gem for Agility since I don't have many 245 pieces, no Grim Toll and I also am currently fist spec'd. So my crit is pretty high up there. However, I've read this article and many others and I really think it may be time to get the Arp Trinkets and just gem Armor Pen.. as well as pick up that nice lil iLevel 232 axe/sword combo from the ICC dungeons. Also, while Agility does offer multi-bonuses of Dodge, Armor, Attack power AND crit... it does not however become as effective as armor pen. From what I've read, Rogues do not need armor and dodge as much as they need to be able to damage a target. If a fight comes down to a Rogue Evasion tanking... then the fight went horribly wrong. Lasting .2 seconds longer COULD possibly end in a victory... but in very very rare cases. Plus, since most of the damage we DO take comes from AOEs that are a lot of the times magic based... armor doesn't do anythign anyway, neither does dodge. So basically, it's protection from a Whirlwind that we shouldn't be close to in the first place. Sure, utility in a pinch is great... but eh, I'd rather do higher numbers to the boss.
