Rogue


The rogue is a fast melee class capable of dealing massive amounts of damage to enemies. They have stealth ability which allows them to sneak past guards and deep into enemy territory. They can craft poisons to damage or cripple enemies, and can sprint away from enemies when things get too hairy. They're also the only class that have the ability to pick locks and disarm traps, which makes them invaluable to everyone.

Fighting as a rogue takes some getting used to, as it is quite different from any of the other classes in the game. Instead of simply slashing away with special moves, the rogue's abilities are nearly all combo attacks, which makes it even more important to know which moves work best with which kind of enemies. Rogues do however have some crowd controlling abilities which make it slightly easier to deal with multiple mobs.

This class is best suited for people who want to deal maximum damage, but don't like the magic of the other high-damage classes. It's one of the best soloing classes and relatively cheap in armour, as rogues wear leather. A rogue isn't as durable as a warrior or paladin, but with high damage output and crowd control, a well-played rogue can outlast most classes in a melee fight.

The rogue, although one of the most useful classes in the game, carries a stigma as it is a favorite amongst anti-social kids with a desire for maximum damage, and minimum consideration for other players. These kids are the main reason behind why hunters and warlocks have had their stealth detection reduced to uselessness, and why most classes have had their damage output severely reduced so they can't outperform the rogue. As such, choosing to play a rogue, carries the burden of having to deal with the prejudism that all rogues are idiots, which unfortunately is true for the majority of rogues you encounter in the game.
