I have to say, I'm REALLY disappointed with the itemisation design for Combat. Cata saw the end of quick off hand swords and axes which was really sad for me having come in during Wrath. Seeing myself and other Combat Rogue's stalking Dalaran with a pair of scything axes on our backs was awesome and exactly what I wanted from the class. Now due to poison redesigns, as stated here and simplifying loot tables, it seems we'll never see what was in my opinion the only athletic dual wielding spec.All this talk about class redesign just doesn't excite me like a (albeit vain) return to a dual sword wielding slasher spec would.I'm not fussed about any potential "loss" in how "mathy" the class is. It will still take a decent amount of skill to play the class well. Whether someone else does that for you or you are able to do it yourself makes no odds to me.

Hrm... I wonder. Maybe Combat could have a feature where 2.6 speed weapons in the offhand were recalculated to be 1.8 speed, and have damage ranges adjusted accordingly. That would allow dual axes/maces/swords but without cluttering up loot tables.

I agree. I miss duel wielding swords / axes. It just "fits" for a combat rogue's image.
