Since I'm in the process of leveling a rogue specifically for PvP, I'm just curious: Is there any reason to take Nightstalker once you have Quickening? There's the cooldown reduction on Stealth, but it seems like most PvP engagements are long enough (plus the 5 second rule) that that doesn't really benefit you. I feel like within the context of thus build, those points would be better spent getting a guaranteed extra combo point from your openers.

Nightstalker is taken more for the increased stealth speed. You actually move faster stealthed than your enemy does normally.

Yes, Nightstalker increases speed while stealthed but so does Quickening. The reason for not taking Nightstalker is that you are already getting a speed boost from Quickening (which states that is does not stack with most other movement speed increases, thereby making Nightstalker useless)

@NeuroFrom Wowhead - With 2/2 in this talent and 2/2 Quickening, my rogue moves at 115% unstealthed and 126% stealthed. After stealthing, you cannont unstealth immediately (aside from using abilities) and restealth as Stealth has a 2 second CD.It appears that since Nightstalker is applied only during stealth, it still gains the benefits from quickening since it doesn't have the same disclaimer on it.

Thanks for the responses. Just as a followup, does a spec with those talents get any speed benefit from Assassin's Step?

@WillNo, the enchant would be wasted on a spec with built in speed boosts as they don't stack.
