PVP Rogue Spec: Assassination or Subtlety?

Rogue
Post Limit:
Has there been a decision yet of what spec is better? Assassination or subtlety?
I'm playing sub because I enjoy it more.
bump, I'm hearing that subtlety is better for control.
I like assassination more too. I've never gotten the hang of Subtlety personally.

Have you considered combat? there is an issue of pressure when it comes to the right time to pop the cooldowns, but all specs are kinda like that.
I havent considered it. It only seems good for raiding and alot of the higher rated rogues are not combat

There are no high rated rogues. Only rogues play with zoos.
Assassination with prep and clos glyph. It's the best combination of survivability and reliable dmg there is atm. The loss of dance/step/hat is far outweighed.

It almost can feel OP, then you have to remind yourself that if you're doing decent now, just wait until we are buffed.

Step is really good though... and what's clos?
Clos is cloak of shadows and he's wrong. This is not wrath. Mut/prep's days are gone. Shs is just better than prep, arguments can be made to the contrary but none of them have any convincing evidence. Also prep doesn't increases assassinations damage by any significant margin. You get one extra free ambush/garrote/cheap shot. Grats. Assassination with shadow focus, elusiveness, step, paralytic poison, and Shuriken toss for the final tier. That's the build, an argument could be made for prey on the weak, but that relegates you to crippling use which renders the 4pc bonus useless.
Pre is nice for the sake of Evasion/CoS/Vanish reset, but I have to agree that ShS is more useful. The 24 second CD just makes it, and Assassination seriously needs the mobility.
