Deep in the wilderness throughout WoW you will find the stealthy and lethal Rogue society.
A group that is heralded as the most devious in battle, but crippling at the same time. I enjoy a few of the many abilities a Rogue can offer, especially the ability to handicap others in battle with various poisons.
The Uniqueness of a Rogue
Well, beyond on the battle benefits, the Rogue will always be called upon to pick locks. They are the only class that can do it, and if you’re smart you’ll take advantage of the money that can be made by this supply and demand opportunity. Anytime someone gets a Lockbox from a drop, you’ll see a nice request for you in the chat area. It’ll be worth a few gold a piece at least.
Since your Rogue can have a very high melee damage potential, it’s not surprising that you can deal all kinds of damage. Best of all you can sneak up on your opponent and stun them, take away HP and then use Vanish, Sprint, or Blind. In short they are probably the most resourceful class out there. However, I haven’t even broke out all the details surrounding your newest character.
Unfortunately there are downfalls to every class, and the Rogues aren’t any different. On an armor standpoint you won’t be able to wear anything above Leather. No, there isn’t a trainable Mail Armor area for them either. I would have to say this isn’t close to the worst considering you will have no buffs available at all and you can’t heal yourself without a potion or bandage.
Building a Fast Leveling Rogue
Now that you know all the weaknesses surrounding your new Toon, it’s time to make a build for him or her so you can reach level 80 at a higher rate. The Assassination tree will be full of crit strikes, reduction and gains in energy, as well as increased damage. This is your best bet at building an unbeatable Rogue. 51 points should placed here, and none of them should wind up in the following abilities.
Improved Poisons (2/5)
Improved Kidney Shot (0/3)
Deadened Nerves (1/3)
Find Weakness (2/3)
Master Poisoner (1/3)
Underneath the Subtlety and Combat talents you’ll have 20 points to play with and give your character a few extras increases. I didn’t want to put too much into the Combat zone because there is more you can do in the Subtlety area. So you will only see one ability addition there.
Improved Gouge (2/3)
Master of Deception (3/3)
Dirty Tricks (2/2)
Ghostly Strike (1/1)
Serrated Blades (3/3)
Improved Ambush (2/2)
Now get out there and start showing everyone how fast you can level to 80.
If you find a better way to level up then by all means do it. The idea here is to help you figure out the best option available, and allow you to learn new things about the World of Warcraft game.
