Amazing analysis of the Combat spec in 4.0.1Used to be my personal favorite, but with the recent changes, it just isn't competitive

Yes it was a great analysis. Unfortunately Combat looks to be relegated solely to a 1-80 leveling spec as it still seems to be the best spec at taking on multiple mobs. Once you get to 80 and learn mastery, its time to switch to Assassination or Subtlety.

I don't know if I would say that combat is the best leveling spec. I'm working on my second rogue right now as subtlety and I'm having no problem at all with mobs up to 3-4 levels higher than me. With Shadowstep available early and on a 20 second cooldown along with all of the other tools we have, I'm finding it to be insanely easy to level. I've not found a non-elite mob yet that is equal level or lower that didn't die to Shadowstep + Ambush and most higher level mobs only take a Hemo or two and they are down. I know this isn't really speaking about multiple mob pulls, but with Sap and Distract you only have to deal with one mob at a time.
