Baldurs Gate 3: Rogue Guide - characteristics Baldurs Gate 3 guide, walkthrough

In this chapter of the Baldurs Gate 3 guide, you will find the general characteristics of Rogue.

Rogue is one of the character classes available in Baldurs Gate 3. While Fighters enjoy fierce combat, Rogues rely on skillful stealth and learning the weaknesses of their opponents to gain an advantage over them in every possible situation and eliminate the target in such a way that they don't even know where the fatal blow came from. Rogues usually act as typical damage dealers, as they can inflict huge amounts of damage on a single target in a short time. They can also have interesting spells and tricks at their disposal, and do a great job opening all kinds of locks. Because of their dexterity and ability to avoid problems, they can also perform well as scouts.

Class features

Rogue's fighting style and his skills rely on incredible speed and agility, which makes Dexterity his main attribute. When developing such character, pay attention to two additional abilities - Wisdom and Constitution. If later, you want to focus on the Arcane Trickster specialization you will have to give up one of the secondary attributes in favor of Intelligence.
