Sorry if this thread gets brought up often, and if there's just a guide you can link me to, I'm more than thankful.
However, in the case that it isn't, I would love for some experienced Rogues to help guide me along to glory :).
First off, I'd like to primarily focus on PvE at first, but I'm not adverse to acquiring gear through PvP to fill in gear gaps.
My basic question is what I should start doing to get myself the best PvE pre-raid kit possible. I /assume/ it's heroics, but I could easily be wrong, since I've been away from the game for almost 4 years.
Secondly, does it matter if I want to play Assassination or Combat? Does Combat have a significant edge at this gear/content level? I'd prefer to play Assassination, simply because I find it more fun. Again, open to change.
Thanks for all the help and guidance.
Assassination is very good. But ya run heroics and get gear. Once you can Q for LFR I'd go over to the isle of thunder and do a few dailies and/or kill rare mobs. Reason being they have a good chance to drop a key to the treasure room. The treasure room is filled with chests that drop gold and elder coins. Elder coins give you bonus rolls in MSV, HoF, ToES. (Note) I'd watch a video for the treasure runs on YouTube so you have a good understanding what to do so you don't waste time. Once you have a few coins do LFR and use coins like crazy.
Once you have some decent gear google Shadowcraft and get a proper reforge and gemming. You may have to push the auto reforge and auto gem button a few times to get it right.
The guide here is out of date so use the guide on elitist jerks. Practice that priority rotation on dummies untill you are comfortable. May help to download some rogue addons from curse.com to track buff/debuffs.
Try and get a good guild that will help you along the way. If you can't find a guild that does MSV HoF and ToES normal modes. Go to Openraid.com and join some raids there.
Good luck and hope this helps.

OP: Always play what you want! If a spec is SO bad that it isn't viable, you'll know. Many people think nonviable specs are the ones behind 5-10k in DPS--not true! But in your case, assassination is going to take you a long way.
Ummmmm if you have any other questions feel free to ask Cloaked.
