Then you don't know how to use other classes. He is far and away the weakest class at the end of the game. And dps is not top notch because it's limited to single target damage. And even in this department there will be better choices - as I showed you.
That's the main problem of the rogue: he's not "the best" at anything while being really squishy and not versatile at all. If you look at the game from start to finish it may be that he can be ranked no. 1 single target damage dealer by a small margin - because he already starts with Sneak Attack which is awesome to have so early in the game. But even then he is not overwhelmingly better at that. It doesn't balance out his flaws. Especially in the mid to late game he falls behind quickly compared to other classes.
Speaking of damage: the problem with the character sheet is that certain effects don't find their ways into the statistcs. For example the damage of the animal companion doesn't count towards the ranger's damage. A well skilled ranger with a equally well skilled wolf for example will do hier single target dps than a rogue. Same with a chanter's Dragon chant.
By the way the druid doesn't need weapons with on-crit effects. He can achieve the same things with spells, like Returning or Relentless Storm for example. The first is also available per encounter. He only needs to stun an opponent - which is easy - and then hit him with his claws. Crits will follow.
But I guess we could talk about this forever and you wouldn't believe me. We've had this discussions several times and it leads to nothing. I will not convince you unless you see in game what I mean.
So I challenge you:
Show me any rogue build who's good at something (single target damage, single target CC... whatever comes to mind) and I'll show you another class with a build that can do it equally well or better. Show some screenshots or a video how he performs - for example do a hefty (but not too hefty, we don't want to dabble in consumables all the time) encounter like Nalrend's Bounty or his gang in front of the cave and solve it with a rogue and I will show you the same encounter with another class, doing it better. It doesn't have to be solo - you can bring one or two tanks to distract and draw aggro a bit. Or whatever we agree on.
I could also start and show you a build and you can counter with a rogue build - how you like it.
