Feb 27th 2012 1:48PM I played a Combat Rogue all through Wrath (started playing WoW a few months prior), with an Assassinate offspec for PVP. When Cata came out, I analyzed the gear, abilities and whatnot and decided to switch to Assassinate as my main spec for leveling, and leave Combat for instance running. After a while I noticed the same thing you did. The gear was totally different. So I stayed in Assassinate spec full time. I think the last time I switched to Combat was right after I hit 85 to add Smoke Bomb to my bars. I've thought about respeccing to Subtlety, but have been holding off for exactly this reason: I don't want to spend incredible amounts of gold and time to get an entirely new set of gear in order to do the same amount of DPS. (Leaving aside learning a new rotation. That's the easy part.) This post pretty much made up my mind for me. I've got no reason to respec except to PVP, which requires a different gearset anyhow. And since I don't PVP often enough, I'm staying Assassinate for the foreseeable future, i.e., until MoP comes out.
