Q1. Sword or Dagger A. From levels 5-49 its recommended you go with sword. A sword has a narrower area of attack, while a dagger is wider. Sword's melee attacks are also faster. Daggers also add MATK, its slightly less damage can prove challenging, but at higher floors they will come in handy. Q2. Dual Wield or Single A. Dual Wielders typically possess a higher damage output, but Single Wielders have the advantage of using a shield. Not quite recommended for 5-49 to use a shield. You can dual wield if you wish. In fact, almost everyone 5-39 dual wields. Q3. Def, Mdef, or Balanced Armor A. For 5-49, it's better to go with DEF, since a lot of monsters from floors 1-8 use physical attacks (except bosses. They don't count ). If you'd appreciate extra SP, find armor with the higher MDEF as that usually adds more SP. If you want more HP and SP, there are armors that have a relatively close amount of DEF and MDEF, which adds SP and HP almost evenly. Q4. Do I purchase armor and weapons from the store or stall? A. You can buy your first weapon at level 5 when you choose Rogue. All your armor and weapons can be from monster drops. Items are for levels 1-40, so I'd say save your gold for armor and weapons for when you hit 50. Q5. Which store rings should I use? A. Rogues would benefit most from STR, and DEX rings. You can wear 2 of the same or one of each. The +2 is a little under 2,000G, easily affordable for 5-49. Q6. Which passive skills to I increase/max? A. Definitely Duplex, definitely STR, VIT and DEX. It's optional to so all 8 but you can skip INT, MEN, SP and HP passives. Q7. What stats should I do? A. From 5-30 you can freely test out builds and stat ratios to explore your style. The typical stat ratio by 49 would be VIT=20, DEX=(20 or 30) and the rest into STR. Q8. What skills should I increase? A. Like all classes, our ace skill (kill drive) has a few pre requisites. You can either do those few skills, or you can increase them all to expand your arsenal. Q9. Range vs Close Quarters? A. We can do both, but it is recommended to go melee, since majority of our skills revolve around close quarters. We do have 3 ranged skills, throw dagger, cast viper (very useful in pvp) and dodge dagger. Switch it up between all the skills you plan to use. Q10+ I'll leave this blank for any questions I haven't already covered. Remember this is an FAQ for BASE ROGUE, not advanced classes. A separate thread for Advanced Rogue Classes FAQ will be made by me and @Leo Striker FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL CLASS. Hope this was helpful, enjoy the game, folks!
