My 1st character was a Rogue too, and I have to say, I think it is one of the harder classes to work with, especially as a beginner.Rogues are pretty squishy, so by the the time you get up past level 10 or so, two mobs at once usually is instadeath. You really have to stalk in stealth, watch patrol paths, carefully set up kills, and manage your combos/attack chains to lock down mobs as much as possible and blow them up before they punch you to bits. Now i haven't played a low-level Rogue since Vanilla, but looking over the skill list, it doesn't seem they've changed too much.Honestly I haven't found a class as difficult and error-sensitive starting out as Rogue. It could just be me. I won't say I didn't enjoy stalking a kill and ambushing single mobs in dead spots in patrol paths - but it was a pretty hair-trigger thing. I leveled my next two characters (a Priest & Druid) to 80 in half the time it took me to level my Rogue to 60. I think if you're good at making snap decisions, thinking quickly and have great situational awareness, Rogue can work for you. Otherwise, I can respect the simplicity and survivability of a Paladin or Warrior. On my 50ish prot Warrior I still only use about 4 buttons: Charge, Thunderclap, Rend and Shield Bash.
