The Trickster Rogue is a pure DPS class with high single-target damage and low AoE damage. It uses a combination of stealth and flanking for maximum damage and survivability.
Rogues are particularly effective in balanced groups where a tank is able to hold aggro and a cleric can heal.
The rogue's special group ability is being able to detect & disarm traps.

Sneak Attack: +25% damage bonus while stealthed
Shift: Quickly roll 8 feet away from danger. Requires Stamina; at level 1, can be used twice before resting.
