I can't imagine trying to raid lead while also maintaining my best DPS performance as a rogue. With their quick GCD and rapid energy regeneration, it's a very fast-paced class to play, demanding close concentration. Positioning is crucial and highly dynamic, both to make full use of rogue abilities and to avoid taking unnecessary damage. It's worth noting that the rogue is the only class that spends virtually all of its time within melee range of the boss while wearing less than mail armor. The class is just not very well suited to someone simultaneously keeping the big picture that a good raid leader must maintain. I understand Shafted perfectly when (s)he talks about needing to switch to tanking to lead a raid instead of staying on the rogue. I'm not saying that it's impossible to do both, only that I can appreciate the difficulty. Anyone who can play a rogue well and lead a raid at the same time, my hat is off to you.
