A Boxing Week Musical Tribute to Stealthers

Sneakin' and stabbin' has been a core element of MMOs since forever, because stealth is funky.

I always enjoy playing stealth classes. Sometimes the challenge of finding creative ways to bypass some content is more rewarding than the loot and XP you would receive for charging in headlong, swords a-swingin'. And while tanks and healers have to be all self-sacrificing and keep the needs of the group first and foremost, the stealther's only real goal in combat is to get one over on the bad guy - to plant a dagger deep into the enemy's spine before he even knows you're there.

There's something inherently funky about the smooth-talking rogue hustling to get by, but it's not a very holiday-friendly class. Unless you pair it with Clarence Carter's "Back Door Santa," which is kind of Christmas-y but also straight-up hustler.

When you think about it, it makes sense. Santa only comes around in the dead of night, breaking into people's houses through the chimney. Admittedly, he leaves toys and socks behind when he leaves, but still - I bet Ra's al Ghul would be jealous as hell of Santa's mad housebreaking skill.
