Best skills for rogue?

Hi guys....I'm currently lvl 75 and I'm on the hunt for the best skills to focus on.
Vulture helped me on general discussion zone but I'd like to open it up to other big hitters out there.
To be honest...a simple list starting from highest priority to lowest would make it simpler for me...I'm aware that different stat builds can affect the priority so could we assume a 1:1 ratio of strength/dexterity and decent vitality count please?
I'm particularly interested in alternative skills like expose weakness and life steal...your views about their usefulness at higher lvls would be of interest.
Grouping skills would also help...
Pure damage skills e.g..quick strike
Utility skills e.g..expose weakness
Survival skills eg..bandage wounds
My thanks in advance to all who take the time to help...happy hunting!

Dont worry about it too much. I suggest dex build if u have ss skill.
It depends on you fight in team or solo.
Read builds: viewtopic.php?f=51&t=16128
If you are solo, then use solo or dex build, if you are in team, then dex, str or support.

Later you will be change it.

lifesteal is usefull if you are solo. If you fight with tank then it is not important.
expose weakness is useful if you are fight with boss, but your level you wont fight with boss. (later)

good if you dont have shadowstrike or use both

If you dont have sigils you need it, but if your partner is druid, then useless

Summarizing, everything is depends on your team.
Ideal team: warrior tank, healer druid, dps rogue (I know i miss mage and ranger)
In this team u need quickstrike, ss, sneaky, assasint

If u write details I can help realy

At lvl 153 I use shadowstrike, quickstrike, and lifesteal. Hope that helps!
Edit: I mainly lvl in a group of 2 or 3 and am a dps build.

Thx guys for all the input...I'm now lvl 132 and have shadowstrike. I still have sneaky attack for kicks but mainly open with ss. Dex is higher than strength by about a third and I will continue with this balanced approach.
Lifesteal is great but costly for energy...expose weakness is ditched. Poisoned weapons takes the place of rend and quick strike along with ss is my main attack. Kept up riposte and fast reflexes. Assassinate a recent addition but like sneaky is more of a gimmick. Looking at play dead to get me out of dodge when mobbed.
Wearing purple smuggler fashion but would be more comfortable in pink witch because I like women's shoes and between you and me..... the cossets chafe perfectly against the thigh!
Happy hunting!
