Let me preface this by saying I did a search for leveling a rogue with boa gear but didn't get any immediate hits. Sorry if this has been asked already - I appreciate your time.
I am looking to level a rogue - the shoulders and chest are a given for the XP boosts - but what about the weapons? I find it odd that rogues have SO MANY options, when many of the other classes have 1 or 0... it's kind of overwhelming.
The general understanding I have is that I'll want a slow main hand for heavy sinister strikes, and at later levels (30+) a fast offhand for poison application and other talents that benefit (Hack & Slash?).
There are a range of options available to me as a rogue...
a 2.8 speed, main hand only sword - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42945
a 2.4 speed, one handed sword - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=44096
a 2.8 speed, one handed mace - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=48716
a 1.7 speed, one handed dagger - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42944
a 1.5 speed, one handed dagger - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=44091
What are your thoughts on the best way to level? I understand that this is kind of subjective and depends greatly on the build I plan to level with... I've tried a rogue as subtlety and enjoyed that, but I hear that Combat is the most effective way to level. Your input is greatly appreciated .
Any tips to spec are welcome. I've been looking @ http://shadowpanther.net/leveling.htm for tips and reading up on Jame's leveling guides as well - albeit briefly.
Also, what enchants should I aim for? I always thought I should do Crusader but have been reading about Fiery lately and am unclear which is the community favorite.
