What spec with these slow weapons?

Rogue
So say I have these 3 weapons:
Claws of Gekkan
Gao's Keg Tapper
Siege-Captain's Scimitar

What spec should I play? I'm currently playing Assassination in PvE, didn't want to go Combat this expac but are those weapons the most viable with Combat? I know lots has changed with poisons and weapons but not totally sure what that would mean in my situation.
Assassination requires dual daggers.

If you want to use any of those, you'll need to go Combat.

On a side note, Sub does "work" with a slow, non-dagger mainhand, but you lose access to backstab which is your primary CP builder.
Oh come ON!!

Alright thanks just making sure but I can use two slow weapons correct? Not one slow one fast..

Then not only would you lose Backstab, but you would lose poison procs. So, yes you can play Sub w/ a non-dagger main-hand; yes, you can play Sub w/ a non-dagger off-hand. However, each step of the way lowers your damage output.

In all honesty, when two of our three specs have main abilities that say right on them: requires dagger(s), I don't even know how this is a question.
Am I the only one bothered by the fact that this rogue at one point had the legendary daggers and is now asking a question that is so simple?

Meh, wasn't sure if Combat would have been better with two slow weapons or if I should be keeping one of my fast weapons. Didn't know completely about the poison change so I thought I'd ask. Oh and those Legendaries were extremely easy to get if you didn't know...

prety sure blizzard changed it so speed of weapon doesnt matter for poisons
They didn't. In fact, they made it more important. PPM poisons no longer exist.
Waiting for the whoosh...
