    Come on guys I know you got something good to jibber jabber about.

    I'll start. I went on the PTR and spec'd myself in Combat Potency, Blade Twisting and Surprise Attacks.

    My experience thus far, and a few warnings:
    Combat Potency:
    Allright my warning to you here is that it doesn't show up in the combat log
    AT ALL. It procs just fine and it's a damn nice advance. This synergies with Blade Flurry and Slice and Dice so well at the moment. I went without Leathality and Relentless Strikes, and I still believe my dps to have been very much so boosted. This, paired with 4/9 Bonescythe makes for a deadly combination really it does.

    Surprise Attacks:Ok so it's not the most exciting thing in the world, but it is a great boost nonetheless. Tooltip for Sinister Strike with Aggression and Surprise Attacks is 77-78 damage+Weapon Damage. The thing that seems to shine so much about SA is not only Rogues, but Tanking warriors. It helps to keep a good steady flow to your damage rotations. It's also noteably useful in PvE soloing stuff.

    Blade Twisting: Since Weapon Expertise is basically out the window, I picked up Blade Twisting. In pvp it's a good thing to have( I think ) paired with (Offhand) Crippling Poison. It almost makes sure that your target is slowed consistently. It's nice in solo grinding aswell for those O crap moments or to halfway kite mobs when you want to. All in all it's an OK talent considering.

    Now for a random picture of me with my mount, and me finally seeing someone else with my mount on the test server.

    Here's a pic of me in BWL with my IRL twin brother, who happens to be a DPS warrior in the guild.( note: weapon models were changed, and I no longer do that)

    Nice to hear about the PTR, I haven't had time to look more into it myself yet. After this weekend I can focus more on my Rogue again, lately my Mage alt have been getting my spare time from raiding.

    I'm still uncertain about spec, I haven't had Combat Dagger for more than say a month now, but its sure fun in PvE. I was thinking something along solo and raid build but with all the new talents it sure is lots of possibilites.

    It's nice to know that there's so much variety now. I mean you can literally do almost any viable assassination, combat, or subtlety tree for pve and still be allright.
