The Rogue is primarily a melee damage dealer. This section lists sample Assassination, Combat and Subtlety builds. Talent builders can be used to test different builds or slight variants on the ones listed below, and links as well as details can be found on the Rogue talent page.

Assassination

Assassination rogues specialize in using both daggers and [Mutilate] to deal high damage to enemies while gaining large amounts of combo points.

Mutilate Daggers (31/2/3)

PurposePvE Raiding
Talent Link(s) Wowhead
Tested patch4.0.1

3/3 Relentless Strikes and 2/3 Precision may be changed to 2/3 Relentless Strikes and 3/3 Precision, and 1/2 Deadly Brew may instead be used for the filler point of your choice. The preferred cycle is to build 4-5 combo points (if the target health is above 35% use [Mutilate], use [Backstab] otherwise ), use [Rupture] if it's down, and [Envenom] otherwise.

Combat

Combat rogues specialize in using [Sinister Strike] combined with a slow mainhand weapon to maximize physical damage to a target, while maintaining great burst with spells such as [Adrenaline Rush] and [Killing Spree].

Combat Raiding (2/31/3)

PurposePvE Raiding
Talent Link(s) Wowhead
Tested patch4.0.1

2/2 Improved Sprint and 2/2 Blade Twisting may instead be used for the filler points of your choice. The preferred cycle is to build combo points (mainly with [Sinister Strike]), keep [Slice and Dice] up, use [Rupture] if it's down, and [Eviscerate] otherwise.

Subtlety

Subtlety Raiding (3/2/31)

PurposePvE Raiding
Talent Link(s) Wowhead
Tested patch4.0.1

1/3 Enveloping Shadows may instead be used for the filler point of your choice. You might consider using the points in Lethality and Precision for Coup de Grace. The preferred cycle is to keep [Hemorrhage] up, otherwise [Backstab], keep [Slice and Dice] and [Recuperate] up and use [Eviscerate] to try and refresh Rupture.
