I would also love to see some more articles on sub spec. Or at least explain stuff like mechanics for all specs including sub and not just stick to assasination and combat just because sub falls behind in dps.You have to remember that there are still people out there that love to play sub.Personally for me, sub is the "one true" rogue spec. Sneaking around, spotting just the right target, and waiting conceiled in the shadows till the time is right, then... BAM! unleash hell upon your unsuspecting target, killing him before he even knows whats going on before vanishing again.Note: I dont mean that the other specs arent the rogue way to go, sub is just my personal preference and I, and i'm sure others aswell, would like some more info on the spec.

I BG lvl'd my rogue as sub til the 70s bracket and I absolutely loved it. I mentioned in an above comment that I would so do it again if I was doing arena. Shadowstep is my absolute favorite rogue ability. I hate how with pure classes ppl just throw the under-performing spec out the window in order to min-max. It's the same with my BM hunter. I know her dps isn't as good, but what sets a hunter apart to me is the pet! So I want a spec that focuses on the pet. I don't notice it so much with the more hybridized classes, but if you're a pure class and you're not playing optimal spec 1 out of 3 then you're not going to find much support w/in the community. Anyway, just my two cents....

Totally agree with you Alex.Bored with my Combat rogue I have rolled a Sub rogue and leveling him from scratch.I have use the companion guide below as a rule of thumb and it feels almost like I'm playing a new game. Having lots of fun with it.http://samueltempus.wordpress.com/2009/03/12/leveling-a-rogue-leveling-subtlety-10-80/Sub spec is too often overlooked in the blinkered DPS numbers race. It's a shame because if people took the time to learn it they would find that it can be effective and fun.
