    Ranger is better for raiding. Check out the guide in my signature.

    For PvP, use Marksman. 44MM/22RS may be superior to 51MM, depending on your playstyle. Zaros has a guide that covers every viable PvP spec that I recommend reading.

    Only spec you should use 51 for is NB.

    And Bard. Call me crazy but Ranger too.

    Seems like quite a lot actually

    Come to think of it, I am a bit dated in all things Rogue...but do people use 51 NB?

    I thought he was talking PVP. In which case, yeah, Bladedancer too.

    In PVE 49/17 NB/Sin is better than 51, but 51 NB is used more often in PVP because Living Flame lets out more burst, and you can spec into BD for a gap closer.

    And because 20 stack Scourge makes me very happy. My opponents, not so much.

    Depends on the fight. Eradicate and Deaden are useful tools to have as a MM. Most raids I've been assume you have a MM build for this purpose.

    But 51 Ranger is the best single-target ranged build. I tend to use MM for trash and specific fights and Ranger for the rest.

    Marksman is useful for PvE, certainly, but in raids, you're likely to spend most of your time as ranger. There's only a handful of fights when you need a marksman, and even then, you only need one. In HK, there's only two or three fights where Marksman is even useful. In ID, there's one.

    I stand by my earlier statement. Should you have a marksman spec? Sure. Is it better overall? Not really.
