Raid on Tuesday... what spec will you be?

Tuesday is right around the corner so I ask my fellow rogues what spec will you be walking into vaults with? I will most likely be going in as combat since it seems like it will be favorable on the first boss. As for OS I'm still up in the air. I am leaning towards sub because the reforges will be very similar (if not identical). Lets hear it!

I feel like Combat is going to wreck just about everything with the Shadow Blades CD now. If not though, Assassination pulls excellent DPS.

Sub but I'll prolly offspec combat cause of BF. Seriously something needs to be done about that.

Unless LFR comes out at same time I won't be.

Anywho, I'd do Combat if I was.

What can really be done? Giving the other 2 specs a cleave would be beyond OP. Shadow dance cleave? My god.

My problem is coming from BiS gear I'm currently hating the way all the specs play with the extreme lack of haste. They all feel so slow. I guess I forgot about this stage of gearing last expansion =P. Early testing through heroics (and keep in mind this is very anecdotal and coming from an extremely small sample size) feels like combat is a little bit ahead of assas but they are competitive.

Don't even go there dude, dungeons are so different from raids, what with having different buffs from one group to another and not needing sustained damage.

Making it just auto attacks and poisons?

They don't need the same type of cleave, just some form of it.

I can't decide! I want to do all three?!?! Maybe Sub. Depends on the encounters I suppose... which I need to look into.

In that case combat also needs a better wide scale AoE. That would probably work for mut/sub though.

Well I can tell you stone guards (first boss in vaults) is cleave city.

I had thought stat priority for sub had changed and is currently more in line with sin? Mastery being the top stat due to finishers. Or was that not meant to carry over from 85-90?

PvE wise mastery replaced crit for sub but haste stayed on top of both of them. Not sure how true that is at 90.
