Basic Information from Blizzard regarding Rogues:
At home in the shadows and skilled at disappearing from sight, the rogues of Azeroth are most comfortable when acting in the background. Twisting events to their favour, striking only when advantage is greatest: this is where a Rogue excels. With their cunning tricks, physical abilities, and mastery of concealment and disguise, Rogues have no trouble finding employment as thieves, cutthroats, spies, and assassins. The Rogue is a very involved and fun class to play. Your effectiveness depends on how well you learn to use the Rogue. There is a lot to take in, but players can master the Rogue with knowledge and experience. Here are a few sample skills available to Rogues.

Valid Races: Human, Dwarf, Night Elf, Orc, Undead, Gnome, Troll, Blood Elf

The TenTonHammer take on Rogues

Like sneaking up on people? Backstabbing your friends? Then the Rogue is the class for you! Rogues dish out huge damage in combination attacks, but can't stand up to a ton of return damage due to not being able to wear heavy armour. A good choice for a class if your a fan of hit and fade type attacks and have the patience to take out one creature at a time with care.
