Assassination Rogues get Agility through Item Level. It's often best to equip your highest item level piece in all slots, with the exception of rings, which do not contain primary stats. Socket procs can make up for 10 item levels or more. After that, focus on secondary stats.

If you are not sure and still looking for that level, try to stay below 40 effective Corruption (Corruption minus Corruption Resistance from the legendary cloak and Essences).
