WoW: Extended Rogue Guide: Poisons and Combo Points

Something with Poison in It!

In World of Warcraft Rogues are given a unique ability to use a
"finishing move" that can be used anytime as long as the Rogue has
collected enough combo points from doing various attacks. Using these
finishing moves along with the various poisons is key in both survival
and victory for a Rogue. Our Extended Rogue Guide goes into detail
about how the combo point system works and all about what poisons to
use when.

Start with an opening move if at all
possible.  At very early
levels, your only opening move is Backstab.  At 14, you'll get
Garrote, but remember my guidelines on using DoT's.  At 18,
you will finally get Ambush.  When you get Ambush, take
Backstab out of your stealth menu.  Backstab will never
outdamage Ambush.  From that point on, only use Backstab with
Gouge and in groups.
