Introduction

These agile fighters pride themselves on their skills with knives and daggers to make quick work of enemies. Lurking in the shadows, adhering to no laws but their own, they punish the wicked, pilfering their ill-gotten gains and delivering them to the downtrodden masses. Thought by many to be mere common criminals, some would say they play an unseen hand in maintaining order in the buccaneer's haven of Limsa Lominsa.

Rogue frame icon.png Rogues choose to live in subterfurge and trickery, but don't belittle their strength: as swift as the wind, rogues can land a precise, deadly hit capable of killing their enemy faster than they can realize. This assassin also employs poison and venom to their weapons in order to weaken their prey. Like Blue Mage, Rogue was added outside an expansion with patch 2.4.

Core mechanics

Rogue icon.png

Rogues prefer stealth and surprise while fighting, delivering harder-hitting attacks when fighting from behind their enemies.

  • Hide.png  Hide - Blend in with your surroundings, making it impossible for most enemies to detect you, but reducing movement speed by 50%. Has no effect on enemies 10 levels higher than your own, or certain enemies with special sight.
  • Trick Attack.png  Trick Attack - Delivers an attack with a potency of 300. 400 when executed from a target's rear.
  • Death Blossom.png  Death Blossom - Delivers an attack with a potency of 100 to all nearby enemies.

Rogues can hide in the shadows to travel across lands. They deal more damage when they attack from behind, or trigger various effects. Certain abilities add special properties to their daggers which inflicts poison on their foes.
