Current rogue

Rogue
I would like to know a few things regarding the rogue class. What is the main spec ppl are using for pvp? Once I hit 90 I plan on pvping full time so I would like to know things like how to gem, what to enchant what to, reforges, etc. Thanks!
The best part of being rogue is: u can play with all specs, just use what u want!
Sub is by far the best for arena

I don't know about the practice - I don't keep tabs on what others use - but in theory of the numbers in damage and concepts of utility, Assassination should be about as good as Sub, maybe even better, in Arena.

In the ideal situation (which is actually easier to achieve as assassination than sub, due to lack of positional requirements), assassination's burst is nearly as high and its sustained damage higher by a fair margin when compared to Sub. In addition, assassination spec is perfect for Paralytic Poison. However, you lose shadowdance, meaning a few less silences and targeted, on-demand stuns.

I'd be inclined to believe that what is "best" for arena would depend mainly on your role in the team.

I'm not too sure about combat. I think it's viable, but it's a royal pain in the !@# to play, since you hit like a wet noodle outside of CDs. All burst, often even higher than sub's, with next to no sustained and less utility.
Ok. if i played as sub how would gemming and reforging work. we still stacking agi?
save yourself a lot of time and rage and just make a hunter.

Maybe in 2s but in 3s you can't not be sub just because of dance alone...

Why would I do that when rogues are going to be on top again for 5.2? And why is a rogue telling me this?
Well, according to:

Reforges for Sub? Gemming?

After you hit the necessary hit/exp(3%) caps, reforge to mastery.

Gemming:
Meta: +216agi/3% crit dmg
red: +80agi/160pvp power
yellow: +320 resil
blue: +160pvp power/+160 resil
