Main role: Striker

Power Source: Guile

Tips and hints

  1. The Sneak Attack passive skill allows Rogues to deal additional damage to enemies that are being flanked (attacked from two sides) or have a debuff applied to them. Remember about that and try attacking the enemies that are surrounded by your teammates - also use support characters to apply debuffs to enemies.
  2. Rogue fights in close combat, but there's no point investing in attributes increasing health or resilience. The Rogue works best when they can deal the greatest amount of damage possible - add as many points as possible to Might and Perception. You can ensure the Rogue's survival with abilities such as Escape or Smoke Veil, which allow you to switch positions quickly.
  3. Rogue's skills use up Guile - a standard source of power used in combat for activating abilities and replenished after each fight.
