CLANDESTINE SKILLS - THE ROGUE’S PATH
The Rogues Path tends to be for players who want more than a just a combat character. Like combat skills, most of your in game secondary skills will also naturally improve through use depending on your roleplay choices.

 

Rogue Clandestine Skills

  • Stealth - Rogues use natural stealth, hide in shadows, move silently

  • Perception - Rogues search for hidden objects, find and understand the nature of traps, surveillance

  • Dodge and Evade - Rogues use agility and speed to avoid being hit, as well as get away from dangerous situations

  • Surprise and Ambush - Whether it is the art of the backstab or setting an ambush for your enemies, there are many ways Rogues try to gain an advantage against adversaries

Many of the rogue skills require real world talents, but as a rogue, at some challenges you will receive bonuses or extra attempts.


Limitations and Restrictions
