It does. 2h weapons have much higher damage per hit than 1h, especially daggers.

We are equal or higher than them unless they are combat specc'd. Many rogues (such as my own) are Subtlety specced and do not have the Dual Wield Specialization talent.

They have the option to sacrifice stealth and go Combat or sacrifice DPS and go Subtlety. It gives them flexibility just like Warriors can choose between defense or offense (though admittedly the only viable endgame build is 31/5/15 or 31/20/0).

You are making the mistake of thinking of a Rogue as a thief, when you should be thinking of them as an assassin.

I have not lost many duels, for the record, and that includes many fights against paladins and rogues. Warriors are fine.
