Feb 28th 2011 3:32PM As opposed to collecting the parts for Thunderfury, the Hand of Rag, or Shadow's Edge before it becomes Shadowmourne?
Feb 2nd 2011 1:58PM You'd need to weapon swap so that your 12 SS hits aren't little more than white attacks that cost energy. Then there's the delay when switching weapons. And as many Mutilate rogues point out, positional requirements on using Backstab can get quite ridiculous on some of these fights. Is it really worth it to try and play Combat daggers?
Feb 2nd 2011 1:47PM No Bandit's Guile, no aggression, no imp SS ... basically the best talents for DPS increase per point are passed over for Combat daggers. Not to mention Blizzard's stance that much like SP Enh or DW Unholy, Combat daggers is not intended and will be broken if proven viable.
More to the point of concern with energy capping — it should never be a problem as long as every GCD is used because then there is no "wasted" energy.
Jan 22nd 2011 6:50PM The like to EJ and the phrase "basic priority system" seem to cover that, eh?

Dec 29th 2010 2:12PM What we need is for people to understand that this column isn't gear for the contributors and theorycrafting minds of EJ. In most instances, the advice and math is spot on. When it isn't, we're talking several % difference with the ideal gearset, raid setup, and RNG taking over.
Honestly, this is worse than the rogue forums.

Jul 14th 2010 1:56PM Still not enjoying the nerf to FoK with Vile Poisons being out of everyone's reach but Assassination for the "buff" that GC mentioned with FoK and poison application.
