Really new to Rogues in general, and I do have a few questions before I roll one. Do note, I am a sneaky soloist- at the moment playing a pure DWS based ranged/melee Ranger with max sneak skills. I'm loving it- but I want more Rogue-like gameplay where I can kill people at my discretion, and don't have to wake up a whole room to do it. The questions I'm asking are really for other sneaky Rogues.
-If assassinate fails, do you stay in sneak? I never failed my assassinate on Lama and now it's down, so I cannot check.
-Along these lines, does the mob come after you or just take the damage like an idiot if you fail?
-Are there any other moves that allow you to attack while stealthed?
-How do you handle crowds if you get caught? I'm thinking imp. uncanny dodge+displace/blur would help, but I'd like to hear how you burst the crowds down.
-Are there any possibilities of any kind of a burst ranged option or a ranged option for bosses in parties when I can't really get close? I'm using manyshot+imp. precise shot/archer's focus at the moment because ranger, and obviously it is wonderful.
I think that's it.
Thank you guys in advance!
