Rogues in Dungeons and Dragons Online are a sneaky lot. They can kill you by backstabbing you with pointy blades and loot your purse before you blink. However, if you don’t want to get blood on your fancy clothes, then the DDO rogue build of the ranged repeater is for you. Now you can pincushion your foes with your incredible marksmanship. There’s more than one way to skin a kobold!

Disclaimer: As always, this build does not represent the uber min/max build that will lift you from the gutters to Mount Olympus. Feel free to make changes to suit your play style and likes/dislikes. This build is meant to only be a starting point, and always remember the point of playing is to have fun.

DDO Rouge Build: Ranged Repeater

The purpose of this build is to create a rogue that strikes from a distance and get the hell out of Dodge if cornered. You’ll do good damage and have a high rate of survivability. The surprise factor is always fun too. Everybody knows that all Rogues use short swords or rapiers! Also please note that all levels are Rogue levels.

Race: Human
Humans have no stat penalties. They also get a free feat, an additional skill point per level, and access to the Human Versatility enhancement line.

Alignment: True Neutral
Being True Neutral allows you to use items with Stability bonuses. While there aren’t any True Neutral weapons out there, your Use Magic Device (UMD) skill should overcome any obstacles.
