Thank you Chase for writing this Article. I really felt disconnected from encrypted text for a long time. My personal reason is that I do not PvE at all. But I understand that much more rogues strictly PvE than those that strictly PvP. As the rogue is the least played class, I am grateful you took this time write a PvP oriented article about the rogue class. Despite the negative feedback, I want you to know that you made my week. (lol) Since I am late posting. No really, thanks.Everything you said I agree with. It is true, there is no right or wrong way to PvP. Combat while equally fun and entertaining as the other two specs, does not work well in arena setting, it does work well vs some classes in duels, as well as battlegrounds. Subtlety works great in arena's, because of the insane amount of control it has. It does not work well vs healers and anything tank spec. It also does poorly against DK's, which are probably the most played class in arena's at the moment. Actually I'd like to post a link to subtlety's control, but I am not sure if that is acceptable on joystiq, so I will posting it in a reply to this.Assassination, hits like a rock thrown from a minor league baseball player. (If you want major league rock hitting, roll a fury warrior).This spec works great vs healers, the damage you can build up from 5+ deadly poisons, vendetta, rolling slice and dice is amazing. You have to be very judicious with your cooldown use and not blow everything at once, timing is everything with this spec. It does well in every single setting, duels, BGs and arena's.I have written a well thought out post aimed at helping out new rogues starting to PvP. As I may end up leaving the game, I would be flattered, honored, grateful you took my thoughts into consideration.When I PvP, I do not think think, I feel. When I PvP, I do use planning, I use instinct. When I PvP, I do not exist, I live.

A PvP guide, by all means, take this and bounce your idea's off it, WHEN you write another PvP article.http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1869217043?page=1Reckful control video, he is showing why Subtlety is now the dominate PvP spec for arena's.http://www.skill-capped.com/watch/6450/control-by-reckful
