As the title states, I wanted to get some input on what other rogues are doing with their talents.
Specifically interested in shadow focus vs subterfuge, cheat death vs combat readiness, and garrote glyph vs feint.

As an example, I tend to go shadow focus --> subterfuge when I see a hunter or shadow priest.

Can some more experienced rogues weigh in on this?

Fuck switching, you die either way once a hunter pops his farm, you need to save your vanish for this.

combat readiness unless it's caster cleave, then nerve strike

i use subterfuge a lot, mages/locks/spriests have a lot of stupid ways to break stealth and typically you can get multiple restealths on them even with dots up, that extra 3 seconds to get an opener far out weighs shadow focus. rarely do i use shadow focus, hunter/war team i would use it but that's about it

Pretty much this though i prefer to roll with dt instead of ns. Also another thing people dont really think about is using glyph of cloak when fighting kfc or melee cleaves

Hmm. Good point. I guess You take it in place of garrote, right?

That's a great point about clos glyph against KFC.

Hm, I often run Cheap shot/Blind/Feint. Cheap shot is pretty much priceless, I don't like taking blind off without getting Dirty Tricks, but I like paralytic too much. Do people just run without feint glyph, and in that case do you drop elusiveness altogether? Being able to keep 30% dmg reduction up can play a big roll in staying alive during swaps.

I guess against caster cleaves, going Garrote/Cheap shot/Feint + mind numbing/dirty tricks works?

Feint glyph is not really all that great imo i would rather just roll with garrote and use shuriken toss+dt vs casters then drop garrote for cos glyph vs cleaves the only half decent rogue comp atm is rps anyways so ur priest can usually cover ur garrote with his own silence during healer swaps and having cos give u 40% dmg reduction instantly while u let cr stack is invaluable sometimes
