View Full Version : Making a WF Rogue...

09-04-2007, 10:23 AM
Hi everyone,

I am looking for some advice.

I must confess that I have never made a rogue. With all the changes the game has seen in the last 6 months, I have stayed away.

BUT...I am ready to dive in.

I want to make a Warforged Rogue to play in the Warforged Nights group. I know I may end up being the only rogue, so I probably ought to be good at my job.

I am also a lover of UMD and would like to be able to use rez scroll and recontruct scrolls!

Ok, so where so I start.

Thanking you all in advance :D

See ya in Stormreach,

It'll be awesome to have you Row.

Are you looking for multi class or pure rogue? I've got a wf bard x/rogue 1 that will also be running with the wf night group from time to time.

This is the link (http://www.guilduniverse.com/themithrilhand/forumreply.aspx?tid=399865) to my build for it. DD 27 by lvl 14 without factoring in any int items, disabling gear, self buffs, skill boosts or thieves tool bonuses.

UMD 24 before using buffs or cha boosting gear. (at lvl 5 I am already able to boost it to 18)

The build is also geared a lot more towards stealth and buffing casters than combat. His role in combat will be more along the lines of support by debuffing enemies with repeaters.

If you can figure out an arcane trickster or barogue build you like, we'd be happy to have you in the guild as well (wf caster guild). I've run with you on Ghallanda, so I know what I'm getting into offering that.

Hi ya Ghoste,

Let's pretend I have never played DDO... ok, that won't work you all know I am addicted.

I really am rogue inept. I am pretty sure intelligence is the main stat. Charisma is for UMD, Wisdom for spot I think I need dex too? and Am i supposed to have no strength or con?

And then let's talk about skills... I really don't know much about it. I am assuming since I am using my intelligence that I will have a lot of skill points to throw around...

Search, spot, listen, jump, umd, disable, open lock...are these the ones I need?

I want her to open every lock and trap in the game and be able to umd rez scrolls and reconstruct scrolls...

Oh and I have yet to multiclass anyone!

So I want her to do traps and UMD and she should probably figure out a way to kill stuff LOL

Ok, so I am a little lost. I tried making one this weekend and realized how in over my head I was.

Lol, I'm no rogue pro myself, that's why I multi with the rogue - so I have a class to fall back on that I know better.

With a pure rogue you will have lot's of skill points, so no need to worry there. With multi, you can still get full skill points in disable, open lock, and umd if you go bard. The total I have listed there also doesnt include the +2 to umd for the spellsinger enhancement.

Try posting in the request a build, get a build thread. He's good at designing stuff that go along with specific goals. Every time I look at a pure rogue I just get to thinking about to what extent their skill enhancements could be duplicated by spells and how it must suck not to be able to cast firewall...
