Any word on Sub PvE viability? Or will this be another expansion where that spec will be mostly neglected for Raiding, as Combat for PvP?From what I've read, there's currently not enough Sub Rogues raiding to give accurate data on how well the tree is working for PvE content. Would love to see that change.

From what I hear Subtlety is currently about 4 or 5% behind Combat while combat is about 4% behind Assassination. I would think that makes Sub somewhat viable however with the complicated rotation and intrinsic dps disadvantage it's going to be hard to stay competitive with other equally skilled rogues.

@DeatNoteDude 1st of all, love the name.Sounds reasonable. I wonder how they could actually buff Sub without touching the other specs. As Backstab is now Assassination's Execute a straight up buff to that attack might just push Assa even farther from Sub. Probably not, but that might be why BS hasn't had a simple buff to it.Another way to buff Sub damage might be to go Feral, that is, buff the Bleeds via Sanguinary Veins or the Hemorrhage debuff. I do admit though, these are just from the top of my head and I don't actually know how far reaching the problems might be for Sub specifically.
