I keep hearing that rogues are really broken right now. I've tested it to level 6 and it seems okay, but obviously that's low levels so maybe they just break as they get higher...But anyway, what all is wrong with rogue? Are there plans to fix it from the devs?
Thanks a bunch.
EDIT: BTw, I'm talking more in the PVE sense.
EDIT2: Also, is there any reason not to use duel daggers? I really like them.
Yes, the rogue class is broken. However, much has been fixed during the last couple of patchs and more will be fixed by release.
Stealth - Sealth for pvp was broken in a major way. It did not work, everyone could see us. As of last night that is no longer the issue. Stealth now works for pvp. Go and backstab the casters till your hearts content.
Posions - Our bread and butter. It was not working at all. It has been fixed. Posion now works but we do not get it untill level 20. Maybe the level will be lowered at launch.
Duel Wield - There have been some issues with duel wield and how it relates to our defense. With duel wield our damage increased and our defense decreased. The game was deducting from defense due to us not using a parrying dagger. This has been fixed. Using duel wield still increases our damage but no longer takes away from defense. We just do not get the added defense do to not using a parrying dagger. Which is the way it should be.
Pocket Lint - Save your lint. There is a book out there somewhere that shows us what we can do with it.
Those are the major issues are / were having. Two of them have been fixed. Lets hope poison gets fixed before launch.
Im sure there a couple of minor issues with the rogue class. Just as there are minor issues with all classes. If there are any, i have not noticed them.
I recomend the use of duel wield. It really is a toss up. Duel wield gives you higher damage and dagger + parry gives higher defense. Its really your choice. If you are going to duel wield, use two daggers. Some say use a dagger + sword, or dagger + axe. I say use two daggers. I have experimented with dagger + sword and found duel daggers to be better.
