Thief, pick-pocket, lock-breaker, and all around shadow rat. To accomplish his goals, for good or ill, the rogue is sometimes a skilled pilferer, other times a master of shadows trained in discreet and efficient murder, relying on anonymity and surprise to perform his task. Cunning, nimbleness, and stealth are his hallmarks. Whether he turns his talent against innocent passers-by and wealthy merchants or oppressors and monsters is a choice for the rogue to make.
Rogues are a diverse class that contains everything from dexterous thieves, to treasure-hunters, to assassins. Masters of stealth and infiltration, Rogues prefer to attack when their opponent is least aware. They are quick but fragile, unable to take heavy damage, and instead rely on their speed to dodge attacks and slip in and out of the shadows to catch their opponent off guard; setting traps and inflicting stealth attacks on foes to give them the edge. Outside of battle, the rogue has a wide range of helpful skills such as lock-picking to allow them to open locked doors and treasure chests or the ability to detect and disarm traps. Some can even steal items directly from enemies allowing the player to obtain items that otherwise might be unobtainable.
