Okay, so i have been reading this forum for about 2-3 days now. I've been trying to find a BiS pre-raid guide all over this forum, but they always end in a fight, and no defniate list. Could we please make a complete list for Swordspec AND Daggerspec? Please post an entire list if you want to contribute to this topic, so we can make it so little confusing as possible :)

-Cheers!

Just get 8/8 Darkmantle, you're going to use 4/8 for a long, long, looooong, time.
Muggers Belt for dagger spec.
Dun Julios Band for both specs.
Royal Seal of Eldre'Thalas for both specs.
Darkmoon Card: Maelstrom for dagger spec, Hand of Justice for sword spec.
Truestrike Shoulders are really nice for both specs.
Lobotomizer in the Main Hand, Felstriker in the Off Hand for daggers, both Dal'rend swords for sword spec.
The Sathyr Bow(?) or the Crossbow from LBRS with 3 agility and 1% hit for ranged. Although you can get one with 4 agility and 1% hit from The Deadiest Poison, which isn't hard to get even when not full pre-raid geared.
Cloak from Baron Rivendare, Cape of the Black baron(?).

Anyway.. i need to go, to find a life. Know this from my head. lulz

I would say BiS is the following (for sword specced rogues) :
Chest/Bracers/Belt/Boots: Darkmantle (D2)
Head: Blooddrenched Mask (ZG Vote Points)
Neck: Valthalak Neck (Pendant of Celerity or something like that)
Shoulder: Truestrike Shoulders (UBRS first boss)
Cloak: ZG Cloak (Vote Points)
Hands/Legs: Devilsaur Set
Ring 1: Don Julios Band (AV exalted)
Ring 2: http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=21182 (Cenarion Badge Farming) <- only my opinion not sure if other rogues agree...
Trinket 1: Hand Of Justice (BRD Emp)
Trinket 2: Royal Seal of Eldre...blabla (DM Book...)
Ranged: Bow from DM East or Crossbow from LBRS (same stats and 1% hit)

Weapons: Dal'rend Swords OR Teebu's + http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=15806 (imo ^^)

It's fixed? Was it ever buged? Didn't notice a difference.
Anyway, that almost no1 bothered to do the endless quest for the set on retail doesn't mean that it wasn't awesome, it would still be easily the best for preraid gear(and beyond).

The ring is fine but Blackstone Ring would be easier to obtain and pretty much equal.
For the trinket, if u're horde switch it with Rune of the Guard Captain and u're good.

Might be fixed, doesn't mean the last 2 parts that you get from the chain, head and chest, arn't BiS.
They are still amazing items that you'll find hard to replace, especialy the chest.

1) Darkmantle is fixed just to let ya know. I tested it on the day of the fix with Procwatch for thousands of attacks.

2) Bloodfang Chest / ZG Chest (if you have enough hit) > Darkmantle Chest
Tons of helms > Darkmantle helm.
