Backstab/Shadowstep

Rogue
Does it seem to anyone else that these two have places where they shouldn't be? Backstab being a specialization move for only Subtlety and Shadowstep being a talent that anyone can have? Madness.

Backstab has been a Rogue normal melee move forever. This should not be a specialization based move, as it is underwhelming now anyways.
Shadowstep has been a Subtlety stable since forever. This should be a specialization based ability, as it has always been.

Also, make Rogues more diverse in what they can do.
It's not backstab ... its known as back massage now.
BS is a sub only skill....because sub was the only spec to ever use it now with dispatch for Mut
Yeah BS belongs in Sub, other specs have little use for it. The crit changes to BS were devistating. I know people have complained about Ambush as well, but honestly it builds so many combo points (especially when spammed in Subterfuge) that I think it's a good trade. Plus Ambush will scale decently. BS needs lots of love though. I agree about Shadowstep, the whole idea of Sub spec is to be... Subtle, and use moves which utilize Stealth or the concept of stealthy-ness in unique ways. However, I also understand that they wanted to offer mobility through the talent tree. But still, they showered other classes in new moves, they couldn't just invent a new mobility talent? I mean god, Paladins basically have their own sprint now - we couldn't get a little bit of development instead of just repackaging old moves?
