All this is based completly on pve, don't plan to do any pvp at all until well, some time.

- What weapon speeds in hands are better?
Fast mainhand slow offhand
Fast mainhand fast offhand
Slow mainhand slow offhand

- What weapon is better in each hand?
Dagger mainhand sword offhand
Sword both hands
Daggers both hands

- AP, is it any good? In terms of damage 2 AP = 1 agility afaik, is this right?

- I was told the slower the weapon the higher chance for poison procs, i would probaly agree, but is this true?

- What is a good build (Depending on which is the best weapon in main/off hand) for pve? (Show a good pve and somewhat usefull pvp build also if possible :P)

Think 1 AP is 1 agility power, not sure though.

Strength increases your melee attack power by 2, except for rogues and Hunters. Rogues and Hunters gain 1 attack power per point of Strength, and 1 per point of Agility.

Uh, I assume you originally meant 1 AGI is 1 atk power, since AP stands for Attack Power :P

All down to your preference. Want to stand your ground with swords, or dance for backstabs? Once you've picked daggers/swords, go for a cookiecutter build for preferred setup: click here (http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.aspx?fn=wow-rogue&t=518864&p=1&tmp=1#post518864)

For mainhand, go with highest top end damage at all times, For offhand, balance low speed and high dps - though that might vary depending on the build you pick.

1 AP = 1 agi = 1 str, tho prefer agi as this also gives +crit & +dodge.
