Topic Weapon/Poision combination.
I am wondering peoples' opinions and suggestions to some different weapon and poison combinations, I usually use Fear(Instant) and Vengeance(Deadly), the Deadly poison on Vengeance applied very often to the targets because of the weapons' 1.40 speed, but in my most recent DS run I won 2x No'kaled, the Elements of Death.
Now originally I applied Instant to MH and Deadly to OH but I notice the deadly is applying a lot slower to targets, and this may be a dps loss, I have used both sets of weapons on the target dummy, F&V pull around 24-27k and 2x No'Kaled pull 29-32k, with just poisons buffs.
My first question would be, is Deadly the correct poison for No'Kaled off hand? Since it is a 2.60 speed it applies much slower so wondering if I could put 2x Instant poisons' instead, since I won the axes I havn't done a dungeon or raid but I am doing DS tonight so I will compare axes dps with the daggers.
What are you fellow rogues opinions? Should I stick with F&V, or stay with 2x No'Kaled, and poison suggestions for the axes please.
Additionally, I am combat and in 4-5 weeks should have The Sleeper and The Dreamer, feel free to check my armory out, thanks!

I shall sing to you the song of the Rogues: "Dooooooooooooooooon't uuuuuuuuuuuuuuseeeee aaaa slooooooooow ooooooooooffhaaaaaaaand".
Axe main hand, Vengeance off hand. Once you get Sleeper/Dreamer keep useing the axe for your main hand.
It's not just that your poisons apply slower with a 2.6 off hand, it's also that you lose a lot of Combat Potency procs. They are extremely important to get your energy regen going.
Use the same poisons as normal. IP on Axe, DP on dagger.
