So you want to be a shadow rogue and destroy in pvp huh… well then :)
Pros: awesome at pvp…8 second stun…high single target damage…
Cons: Not the best at PvE still great but keep a steady potion supply around
all str…yup all str baby. agi you can get enough from gear especially later sets and with skills you get plenty crit chance hit and dodge and the more damage the better
Lv 1 Skills
Assassins Thrust. 1/5. not the best thing in the world and you get an upgraded version later and skill points are way too precious
Slayers Speed. 5/5 +15% attack speed…do i really have to tell ya why you want this :)
Lv 10 Skills.
Slayers Cloak 1/5-5/5 need to be in stealth to inflict stun CANNOT be in battle to use makes it so others cannot see you either. raising points reduces the speed reduction at 5/5 no speed reduction for pvp 5/5 is invaluable in battlegrounds for runners and catching people
Shadow Rush 5/5 Bread and Butter skill of any rogue. 4 second stun and good decent damage to boost. max this ASAP
lv 20 skills.
Choke Hold 1/5 another great skill for pvp but no need to raise above 1/5 slows targets that are in stun use this right after shadow rush
Slayers Call 5/5 +15% crit chance at max lv…a must for any rogue
lv 30 skills.
Shadow Strike 1/5-5/5 great skill does good damage and puts you back in stealth which you can follow up with a second stun…high cooldown though although at 5/5 the cooldown is almost cut in half. your call if you want to raise to 5/5 or not
Slayers Sprint. 1/5 alright for catching up to a runner but nothing to special not worth precious skill points
Lv 40 skills.
Improved Assassins Thrust. 1/5-5/5. Great damage skill best part being it ignores armor max lv i think it completly ignores enemies armor…Make any Knight call you a cheater :) up to you what you want
Brutality 1/5-5/5 increases crit chance for a couple seconds…1/5 is fine i mean with your natural crit rate 1/5 will probably get you really close to 100% crit rate as is its up to you and what gear you have if you think its worth it but i honestly thing points can be put elsewhere.
My skill point recommendation
lv 2. Assassins Thrust 1/5
lv 4-8 Slayers speed 3/5
lv 10 Slayers Cloak 1/5
lv 12-18 Shadow Rush 4/5
lv 20 Choke hold 1/5
lv 22 Slayers Call 1/5
lv 24 Shadow Rush 5/5
lv 26-28 Slayers Speed 5/5
lv 30 Shadow Strike 1/5
lv 32 Slayers Sprint 1/5
lv 34-38 Slayers Call 4/5
lv 40 Improved Assassins thrust
lv 42 Brutality
lv 44 Slayers Call 5/5
lv 46+ on your own on what skills you want higher or what…you can always do what you want of course this is just a guideline :)
i really dont see much point in a lvling guide… do all main quests and optional quests and it should carry ya for a long while if ya still need some exp to lv up to continue main quest fight mobs your lv or alittle higher look at the world map to see mob lv range of areas
Coupons…gained from daily wage if captain or higher and doing alot of other things… coupon tab in cash shop shows what ya buy…up to you
Dungeons…DO THESE WHEN POSSIBLE!!! always good drops
Indigo Dungeon lv 25+
get lv 30 for this and solo it…easy to solo with somewhat decent equipment especially as a rogue since u can stealth the whole way through and never fight a mob bring the lv 30 pots and you will be golden. Purified crystals and dreamwalker shards are the most importent thing here. Crystals are used to lv up mount but more importently to raise soul lv click soul tab in character menu and under item syntheses can craft dreamweaver set gear which is REALLY GOOD!!!
Vault… lv 30+ make friends with a tank and a healer and tackle this dungeon…drops many many many usefull things including mount upgrades wing upgrades and all that…never let dungeon attempts go to waste
There are 2 pets you want
Option 1. Vulture…a morphed vulture can be gotten 2 ways. 1. killing vultures in the island for hours depending on luck and taming one when it spawns…or getting a morph crystal and morphin a regular one. morph crystals have a chance of a reward for the 5th and 10th daily hunt you do so 2 chances a day but need to be in a guild.
Option 2. Teeka…amazing pet with a 4 second stun 12 SECONDS OF STUN TIME a 6% damage increase buff and a really good heal. costs 125 crystals for an egg or turn in 60 guild contribution points to get an egg…EGG HATCHING RATES ARE LOW…took me 15 eggs and will take 1-20 depending on luck I named mine Fuzzy…heehee
PVP….DO THE BATTLEGROUNDS… battleground rewards include mount upgrade tokens wing upgrade tokens eggs and many other fun things
PVP Tips. you want to get the jump on someone or else you are really screwed…1v1 against priests is a no go priests just suck…and without a higher lv improved assassins thrust a knight will most likely turn you to kibble…BUT if you can get 8 seconds of stun on someone they are all but dead
General PvP battle goes…Stealth before u get caught or else you are screwed
wait a couple seconds for reload times on shadow rush
Spam choke hold and assassins thrust till dead
beware of walking into mages AoE…it will take you out of stealth
hope this helps any rogues looking to destroy at pvp…i know i enjoy it
