Was going to level this guy as my next 85 curious how they are fairing in PvP and PvE.

Plan on 10 mans arena and rated BG's

Simple answer is: Not good/Below average/not in a great spot.

They only have 1 viable spec for pve.

There are 2 pvp specs, that both lack considerably in either mobility or damage. (Sub in damage/Mut in mobility.)

Combat has been since dubbed the contradiction spec since Cata release, and as such is utterly useless to any rogue worth their salt.

Then this is another really really key thing that most people overlook when rolling a pure. You better know a lot of tank/healer friends, because otherwise dungeon queues for rogues(pure dps) are at least 40mins, minimum. So in a current situation where your guildies can't faceroll your alt through raids to gear it? You will be having a bit of trouble.

Good/Great in PvE.

Probably somewhere middle to lower tier in PvP.
