Ten Ton Hammer's Class Guides - Rogue

The Rogue class mixes together melee combat, stealth, and fast speeds to create an impressive fighter that relies on his or her damage above all else. Often times you may find Rogues hiding within the shadows, leaping out at their opponents, disabling their special abilities, and launching fast successive attacks weapons in each hand. That's right, if there was something similar to a Ninja in World of Warcraft the Rogue would be it.

We here at WoW - Ten Ton Hammer have gathered together as much possible information as we could about the Rogue class and compiled together here in our massive guide. Tactics, loot, where to level, skills, talent builds, and more are contained in our "tome of knowledge" that is the Rogue guide. Everything you could possibly want to know about the Rogue class should be just a few clicks away!

If you are seeking information that somehow isn't included in our Rogue Class Guide then join us in discussion at our Rogue forums! Here you can discuss the Rogue class in detail with the community! You can even submit information to be added to our Rogue guide and gain the fame of helping advance one of the best sources of Rogue information on the Internet.

Blizzard's Official Rogue Description

The official word on Rogues!

At home in the shadows and skilled at disappearing from sight, the Rogues of Azeroth are most comfortable when acting in the background. Twisting events to their favour, striking only when advantage is greatest: this is where a Rogue excels. With their cunning tricks, physical abilities, and mastery of concealment and disguise, Rogues have no trouble finding employment as thieves, cutthroats, spies, and assassins. The Rogue is a very involved and fun class to play. Your effectiveness depends on how well you learn to use the Rogue. There is a lot to take in, but players can master the Rogue with knowledge and experience. Here are a few sample skills available to Rogues.
