How does rogue have worst survivability than monks and DH when they have the same armor?

Armor isn't necessarily an indicator of survivability in this game. It helps, but it's much more about abilities.

I guess i'll go with rogue then, thanks for the info.

Any info about specs, outlaw looks cool but kept hearing stuff about how is borderline unplayable, are the other two specs good?

Outlaw isn't unplayable, it's just bad. Which is unplayable if you're a super top tier raider which everyone on the internet isn't but acts like they are. The spec is not good though, worse than the other two so there's no real reason to play it if you care about maximizing performance. However both Sin and Sub are solid specs and Rogues are pretty much always "viable." Also they may lack survivability in solo environments, but they're super durable in raids, able to ignore many mechanics, and they have great mobility which is noticeable on any anti-melee fights.

I like to play outlaw in world quests sometimes it’s pretty fun. Outlaw is not terrible in dungeons. However, I strictly raid as sin, which is my main spec. Sub is currently the top performing END game raid spec. I would spend some time reading the rogue forum. Also, check google for in depth rogue spec guides, and watch some you tube videos on rotation, talents, gear. Etc. lesrn all the specs while leveling! So you have a better idea what you want to focus on when you hit 110.

I see nobody has mentioned Enhancement Shaman yet..

Fairly simple and straightforward.

Keep your buffs up.
Different usable talent setups if you like to experiment like me.
Use Stormstrike on cooldown/when its buff is up
Use Crash Lightning for AOE.
Use Lava Lash for filler or proc
Lightning Bolt is instant cast ranged ability so you have -something- do to during keep-away phases.
Your personal heal can be instant cast with resource
Your cooldowns are fairly powerful and hard to forget about
The spec as a whole is very visually pleasing to someone like me. Lightning going everywhere.

And the best part is you are using Orgrim Doomhammer's namesake weapon. And he is clearly one of the greatest Orc Warriors.. ever.

I also have a maxed shaman, but I main elemental. Enhance is performing well right now in Antorus, and alot of players like it. However, I am not a huge fan of so many procs and prefer rogue. Enhance is a little more advanced than havoc or warrior too which is good. Enhance is lower survivabilty for open world questing like rogue. Both have weak heals.

I just noticed this rogue guide I linked above has everything for sub and outlaw too. There is a drop down to pick the spec at the top.

http://roguedpsguide.com/ these rogue guides are great too. some things might not be updated here though. you can see the depth of this class!

This is the best site for elemental (ranged dps) shamans. Enhance is the only melee shaman.

Sorry for late posting with the holidays and all. I guess i'll lean with sub for now and see how it goes from there. I'll probably move to outlaw if blizzard "unnerf" that spec one day.

The rankings will be completely different in the 2018 expansion so I wouldn’t worry about it. And the rankings don’t matter too much unless you are mythic raiding, which VERY few people do. In fact, outlaw was one of the top 3 dps spec in game in higher level mythic + dungeons about 6 months ago. I highly recommend playing ALL three specs while leveling to see what you like best in all content, questing, pvp, dungeons, and raids. Most people play more than one spec on their class.

Ret pally takes 0 skill, is busted in random BGs and wild pvp, has easy PVE rotation and can let you get away from messing up because you got a bubble.

Go for it.
