Just picked up the game but have played D&D for years. Have had a thing for House Phiarlan since the introduction of Eberron so was trying to make a good dragon marked build similar to my PnP character. I didn’t add any tome increases since there is no way I can afford them at the moment being new and all. So just looking for some feedback on if this build will work in the long run for some PvP and PvE.

rogues can be quite costly as a first time build, with the need for multiple stat, skill and fighting items. I would suggest you go with maybe just an arcane archer type build, maybe ranger 11/wiz 5. The access to haste, displacement and ghoul touch can be a large boon to a character without alot of money. You can still take and make use of the house P dragonmarks, and would have an endless supply of arrows to keep you shooting. This being your first character, getting 1750 will most likely lead to its reroll.

If your going to focus on one elf weapon, your better off Rapier rather than Longsword.

9 rogue levels and you cant disable a single trap? That seems like a tremendous waste. Plus Rogue 10 Gives you Improved Evasion.... A Pretty important Feat(Or can be used for any other Rogue Special ABility)

Why Bother with putting all those points into Search if your not putting points into Disable?

The Greater Elf Dragonmark is truly bad. Shadowalk is one of the most useless Spells in the game. Your Hide and Move Silently are already Great. The shadowalk will do nothing for you.

Drop the Wizard level, Drop the Greater Mark, Pick u p Extend withthat feat. You can take Extend Spell once you hit Ranger 4.

You only need 1 point in Tumble. ANything more is just fluff for the most part. Feather falling is easy to find. Bluff is another waste.. Dont do it unless your going to max it. 12 even with a +15 Item isnt going to bluff many high end mobs. If any.

Weapon Focus is not really needed as well.. I would swap that out with SF: UMD and move points into that.

The build is too Unfocused to survive in our version of Stormreach.
