Rogue strengths

  • Stealth if the best spell in the game.
  • Skip all the mobs for quick questing
  • Very fun to play.
  • Best class 1v1 in world pvp (stealth for choosing when to start the fight)
  • 2nd best DPS class in PVE
  • 3 different and very good specs.
  • Undead rogue is the way to go for PVP with the racial skill for breaking fear.

Rogue weaknesses

  • A little bit squishy when solo leveling or when you don’t start the fight in PVP
  • Like warrior, it’s an overpopulated class so a lot of competition for gear and spots in groups.
  • High skill celling, hard to master.
