Rogue Tips havent played for 2 years+

So ive got a level 70 rogue from 2 - 3 years ago the only char i ever made. Ive wanted to start playing again so i bought the wotlk and cataclysm expansions and a 60 day prepaid card. After logging in all my talents are reset so i need to respec i think but am not sure what build to make or should i scrap him and start over. Also i remember using addons but what are the essential ones nowadays. I loved playing the rogue and i wanna level him to 85 and love him once more. Im lost in the world now and its like im starting afresh as ive forgotten how to play

There's lots of good rogue resources out there. You can pick pretty much whatever spec you like playing. Buy dual spec if you don't already have it and have two specs!

I personally like playing Assassination on my Rogue alt that I'm leveling. She's currently at 83 and her spec is (well will be at 85).
Although you may want the Deadly Momentum talent for leveling, up to you. I didn't find it necessary as Envenom refreshes Slice and Dice.

If you like doing PvE, EJ has some nice FAQs for 85 -
Combat -
Assassination -
Subtlety -

These all have nice information about what gylphs would be good to pick up, rotations, etc.

well... if you like Rogue I would stick with them cause I think they are pretty good in Cata. Anyway it depends on what you want to do, are you planning to do more PvE, Raids, or PvP?

For PvP I would go 7/2/32 - PVP Subtlety Build

Raids or PVE = 31/2/8 Assassination Build 8/2/31 - Level 85 Subtlety Build

Welcome back to Wow!

Right now Assassination is lead dps for the Rogue, but check these and this if you want more info.

I'm still leveling my little Rogue and started out with Combat. I switched to Assassination and definitely noticed a dps increase, and am also less energy starved.

Best advice; stay away from Resident of Kargath, I hear he is one bad motha...he will eat your skin!

Assassination for PVE, Sub for PVP.

I love me Rogue, it replaced my other toons only in PVP at the moment.
