From the official site:

Available to: Man, Hobbit

A stealthy trickster, the Burglar can dart in and out of the shadows to befuddle, weaken, or damage foes. An unexpected strike from behind by a burglar can stun or trip enemies, allowing others in his party to combine their efforts for a devastating attack. Unassuming on his own, a burglar would be wise to not be caught alone.

The Burglar is the class of choice for players that enjoy using cunning and tricks to defeat their opponents. Using concealment, a Burglar can strike from the shadows, taking his opponents unawares. With his wit, a Burglar can show his allies where a foe's weakness lies -- or trap someone in a riddle. A Burglar's combat style hinges on his ability to outmaneuver and outwit opponents while hitting them where it hurts.


Skills of the Burglar


Sneak: Allows the Burglar to move about unseen, though there is a chance of detection.

Surprise Strike: An attack in which the Burglar inflicts more damage when attacking from behind or while sneaking.

Burglar's Advantage: Execute another attack after a critical hit, inflicting more damage when the Burglar attacks from behind.

Diversion: When in stealth, the Burglar can divert an enemy's attention away from himself for a short time.

Trip: Knock an opponent down, opening up a conjunction opportunity if the Burglar is in a fellowship. Only usable while sneaking.

Cunning Attack: The Burglar's formidable cunning allows a darting attack which continues to deal damage after he strikes, dealing even more damage if the attack is made while sneaking.

Exploit Opening: Stun a target, opening up a conjunction opportunity if the Burglar is in a fellowship.

Riddle: The Burglar is capable of posing riddles to enemies which may momentarily distract them, dazing them for 30 seconds or until damaged. Will not work on Beasts, Insects, or Creatures of Nature.

Addle: Confuse an enemy so thoroughly he fails any inductions in progress, and any subsequent inductions for a short time take much longer to execute.
