When i got my heroic Freeding Frenzy and pretty much forced to respec from Combat to either one of the other specs, i went with sublety and never looked back with regret. Only drawback to it for me atm is that my other raiders jokingly complain about my spec since they miss my killer Blade Flurry and that i still have to respec back to combat for heroic Majordomo for handling kitties with that killer ability =3Anyways, for my personal rotation priorization for PvE i go with:1st: Rupture. That 16% damage buff from Sanguinary Vein is too good to be dropped for even a half a second. If i get a warning on my SliceAdmiral that Rupture and either SnD/Recup has 3 seconds left, i always pick up Rupture and do a 5 point Eviscerate to refresh it.Im still not 100% sure if the bleeds from other class's are enough to give us the damage buff but since the talent tooltip doesnt state otherwise, i assume they do. If you have a bleed from another player then Rupture drops down to the 3rd place and is replaced by Recuparate (though it is still pretty hard to let rupture drop with the Serrated Blades talent anyway).2nd: Recuparate. Free energy is always good yah? Especially when you go spamming Ambush in Shadow Dance, you need to squeeze that last bit of yellow resource.3rd: SnD. As Sublety this is just a medium sized dmg boost from auto attacks though you still dont want to ignore it.Pro tip: When your raid is preparing to pull the boss, target the boss and let the pre-pull healing crits fill up your combo points so you can do a 5 point SnD/Recup before the tank pulls. You can always to ask nicely for them to do a few heals if its not full :PIm pulling between 25-28k dps on any given single target. One time i peaked at 30k in Baradin Hold. Dont take this as swaggering please, this is simply for referance.

I've seen better numbers with sub prioritizing SnD over anything else, white damage is a smaller % of our damage than the other specs, but its still #1, and poisons are usually 4 and 5. My breakdown on most fights if i didnt fuck up and pop shadow dance and then have the mob turn around or something like that, is generally White Hits>Backstab>Ambush>IP/DP/rupture. Rupture seems like such a small percentage of my damage i wonder if its worth keeping that and the hemo debuff up sometimes, but with eviscerate its a free refresh, so every little bit helps i guess.

*shrug* With me its usually Backstab>Ambush>White>rest. I guess this is what Chase meant when he said that Sub is a territory where no man has gone before, no one truly knows what is the most uber best optimized rotation. As long as im topping my raids damage meters in single target fights then im happy =3 Ego ftw!About the rupture, it IS definately worht to keep both Hemo and Rup up. You need it for the 16% damage buff you get AND if you are good enough you dont ever need to do Rupture more than once per mob since you are refreshing it every time with Eviscerate. And with Hemo's low energy cost and 1 minute duration, it really is worth to use it if you dont raid with a Feral Druid or a Warrior who applies his/her own 30% bleed dmg buff, cant remember which spec did that >.>
