Leveling as a rogue is not really quick, you’ll have some hard times but you’ll enjoy the END game content as a Rogue. Check out the teaser trailer for The Little Mermaid, the upcoming live-action reimagining of the animated musical classic.

There’s an ongoing argument on Backstab Vs Hemorrhage. If you’re always at the opponent’s back (which you should be in raids & dungeons) then Backstab does more damage overall. For leveling and PvP Hemo is much better since you don’t have the positioning issues and the energy usage is less and you can use harder hitting weapons. Glyph of Hemo also adds a bleed effect which has its uses while leveling and is great Vs stealthy types in PvP. Initiative – Rank 2/2 – Gives you a 100% chance to add an additional combo point to your target when using your Ambush, Garrote, or Cheap Shot ability. Cold Blood – Rank 1/1 – When activated, generates 25 Energy and increases the critical strike chance of your next non-periodic offensive ability by 100%.

This effect cannot occur more than once every 2 seconds. Sword or Mace Combat is usually considered to be the best spec for leveling because it has superior sustained damage and can handle is boost lendify legit multiple enemies very effectively. In addition to that, Combat doesn’t rely on stealth or positional attacks and is as good at solo PVE farming/grinding as it is at running 5-man dungeons.

Being bottom dps and energy starved is your life while leveling pre 40. As far as gear is concerned, look for any “of the Monkey” or equivalent items that have both Agility and Stamina. Other stats like Attack Power, Crit % and Hit % are also good to have. Strength, on the other hand, is a fairly mediocre stat for Rogues, providing only 1 AP, whereas Agility gives 1 AP in addition to Crit, Dodge and Armor.

There are other options, but these are cheap and honestly, you don’t need to blow your money on an epic or rare offhand, all that matters is that it’s quick, below 1.50 speed, 1.30 being the fastest possible. When you choose this archetype at 3rd level, you gain the ability to climb faster than normal; climbing no longer costs you extra movement. At 20th level, you have an uncanny knack for succeeding when you need to. If your attack misses a target within range, you can turn the miss into a hit.

In return for having to stick with one tree you get certain abilities unique to that tree. You get it when you enter the Subtlety tree and no Combat or Assassination rogue will be able to get it. Buy the Dual Talent ability from your trainer if you want to work with two specs. For all talents and abilities you either have it or you don’t, there are no points to spend in each talent. In the Cataclysm system, of course, you can spend up to three points in each.

Rogues perform exceptionally well in PvP scenarios and are one of the better classes to play at PvP due to their massive crowd control abilities mixed with Stealth. Specs such as the Assassination Rogue are great picks for arena gameplay and can be an easy class to progress through PvP content competitively. If you prefer a slower playstyle however, and possibly a safer option that doesn’t rely on AoE damage, players can also choose the Subtlety spec to level as. Rogues can use Swords, Maces, Axes, Daggers, Fist Weapons, Crossbows, Bows, Guns, and Thrown Weapons. You should always try to use your best weapon, combat rogues usually stick to swords and axes because of Hack and Slash.

Many rogues focus on stealth and deception, while others refine the skills that help them in a dungeon environment, such as climbing, finding and disarming traps, and opening locks.

Reinforced Leather – Rank 1/2 – Increases your armor contribution from cloth (cloth???) and leather items by 50%. Improved Sinister Strike – Rank 3/3 – Increases the damage dealt by your Sinister Strike ability by 30% and reduces its Energy cost by 6. Your initial attack might do less damage than Subtlety, but it will be easier to keep up consistent damage when fighitng multiple opponents.
