PvE Combat Rogue Talents, Builds, & Glyphs

With the arrival of Cataclysm, the talent system received a massive overhaul, changing from the 71 talent points system to a more compact 41 points system. As such, many of the old talents were either completely removed or changed, resulting in fewer possible build variations. One key aspect of the new system is that you must use at least 31 points in your main specialization to use the remaining 10 points in a secondary specialization.

Talent Builds

Combat Rogue has only one standard viable build that has little to no room for any variations. There are only 3 viable talents that may be interchangeable, Improved Recuperate, Improved Sprint, and Reinforced Leather. You will only have two talent points to play around, meaning that only two of the three mentioned talents can be used.
