Sub Rogue N00b help needed!

Just wondering if anyone would be willing to take a look at my Rogue and make some suggestions with him. I am attempting to get my guild into some casual progression, but I know I am more than lacking right now for much of anything useful. I do not have much, if any experience with raiding as I have been mostly just a leveler and a "whatever" type player. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

first and for most run 5 mans -.- badly in need of gear there's no way you'll see any decent dps numbers for DS right now :( just run 5 man heroics untill your in atleast 378, as for your spec you can check out either of mine, I would suggest changing specs atleast till your more geared for dps :) try assassination it plays some what like Sub... just somewhat anyways

try this website it's great for getting started on rotation/spec and the likes

Don't use Noxxic. Refer to http://elitistjerks.com/f78/ or the guides on this forum first.

Caera's guide covers all three specs for PvE:

And you can use http://shadowcraft.mmo-mumble.com/ to evaluate and optimize your gear.

Assassination is fine for starting out but you'll want to be combat/subtlety for dragon soul.

I use Noxxic just fine, if I have any doubts I always go to Elitist jerks and it turns out to be the same info... like I said Noxxic is great for starting out

It's better than it was (for months the combat page on Noxxic said to reforge to mastery), but still - when we have resources that have consistently proven to be more trustworthy, I'm not sure why to bother with it.

I went in and ran some Heroics last night. I also reforged a lot of gear. Still only doing slightly better than WotLK DPS though. Still got a few item slots to fill up. Anything else you guys can see?

Just run some more heroics until your gear is too par.

Complaining about your dps when youre wielding 346 and 318 weapons is kinda silly...

You need to gear up just keep running heroics and get more vp / jp and buy gear.

Your gemming is sub-par. It would be better to use Agi/Haste gems if you really have to (However, +40 agi is still typically better unless the socket bonus is at least +20 agi). Also, Sub requires very, very good gear in order to show its true damage. If your damage is really bothering you, Assassination will be best until you get to full FL level gear.

This is because both Combat and Sub scale well with gear, both in a good way and a bad way. Assassination, on the other hand, doesn't scale much at all, and just requires a decent amount of mastery to deal damage.

Well, yeah, but I really wouldn't feel like I was fitting in if I didn't whine and complain about something.
