    Default Melee or MM in 1.6?

    I am thinking of whether i should put predatory soulstone into my 1.6 sigil.
    Do melee builds beat MM build in T1 and T2 raids?

    you should be playing both depending on the situation, also you should have far more than 1 sigil.

    From everything I've seen - melee, but a lot of melee bulids will have issues on certain encounters. I'd keep a MM or ranged spec for sure.
    I rite a gooded guide for rouges.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    .....................I am hoping they will nerf the MM. I would go melee but it's a personal choice and play style imo. I will still be melee with the RS buff they get. Still play what makes you happy.

    Here is whats funny....

    I play as MM, I enjoy it and I view myself as an exceptional MM Rogue.

    I have attempted to play different melee builds with no success in having comparable Dps to MM.

    So...
    I continue to play MM because I out perform as MM over current Melee builds for 1.6

    Useful Rogue guides since I don't want to answer 50 billion questions anymore:
    Marksman, Ranger, Nightblade, Blink'Blade, Asstalker, Assdancer, and finally The Hoko Spec™

    Melee will probably have higher ST potential, but it will be close.

    Ranged will still be useful for some fights.

    Rogues will be the third best dps class behind Mages and Warriors (in that order), if things go live as is.
