Glyph of Slice and Dice – Increases the duration of Slice and Dice by 3-seconds. This can be useful while leveling if you find Slice and Dice drops between enemies more often than you’d like.

Rogues offer a unique leveling experience with Stealth and its incredible toolkit, offering multiple solutions to every problem. Most players neglect their ranged weapon when playing a melee-based class in WotLK, and Rogues country singers who wear cowboy hats are no exception.

Prior to that, you’ll be receiving one of, in my opinion, our “signature moves”. Tricks of the Trade is our threat redirection / damage boost combo, which sees extensive use in both PvE and PvP.
Rogues also do not have healing abilities in Wrath of the Lich King.
