Now With More Rogue-y-ness

Rogues are the shadowy stealth like damage class in World of Warcraft and are full of surprises. Making a new rogue can be a challenging experience with all of the options available at character creation. Our newest addition to our Rogue Guide is an extended look at the rogue class and to kick things off it goes deep into detail about creating a brand new rogue by explaining what races you should pick, where you're going to start, what professions you should consider to get, and how various stats work. So don't get stuck trying to figure out the Rogue class when our extensive Rogue Guide is out to help you!

A Rogue's M.O. is a quick burst of front-loaded damage, followed by a short period of sustained damage, punctuated by periodic bursts of damage, ultimately leading to the killing blow.  How a Rogue does this is by sneaking up on an enemy undetected, then striking from a near-invisible state.  As the Rogue progresses through a fight, he/she sets up the enemy for a heavy blow by building up Combo Points.  Sometimes the finishing blow results in the killing blow or it weakens stronger enemies until they die.
