The Rogue 5e class is the most popular among the D&D Nextal game systems. When I say popular, it’s not just because it’s the first to have a full skill tree without requiring levels or a significant amount of XP to start out. It’s also because of several features that allow it to be played in both PvE and PvP. This means that you can quickly transition from PvP to PvE if you choose, making this class a solid choice for both hardcore and casual players.
The Rogue is a thief who uses their skills to aid others in battle and steals things from them for their own benefit. Rogues have many different abilities that help them in combat that you won’t find in other classes. The damage they deal is minimal so you’ll only need to use your attacks and locks against opponents you can’t normally beat. For those times when you need to get up close and personal with an enemy the Rogue 5e has a number of great options for fighting back. You’ll have an assortment of bonuses that boost your damage, armor, or dodge, so you can get the job done faster than other characters.

Variety of different races available to Rogue 5e in D&D:
There are a variety of different races available to rogues in D&D Nextal which all affect the character‘s skills and abilities. Humanoids make up the largest percentage of rogues due to their high constitution and agility scores. Other than humanoids the next biggest population is Dwarves, gnomes, and elves.
Most of the humanoid races can come equipped with common melee weapons. Common weapons don’t have any special properties relating to rogues so you won’t be seeing any special deals on these or any other equipment. Gnomes and elves have access to the powerful magical trinkets, but only at level ten. Dwarves have no racial bonuses or abilities and have a fewer variety of weapon attacks than any of the other races. Rogues are able to use every weapon type and each of them has three attack rolls: stealth, flurry, and sneak attack.
Rogue 5e class features:
The Rogue 5e class features are split into three primary builds. Your choice of the build will be affected by your personality and your ability to use various items. The physical proficiencies are split into two sets: standard and dual-class proficiencies. The standard proficiencies include the following: dagger, dirk, long sword, short sword, parrying, shield, spear, axe, battle axe, whip, mace, great axe, meteor hammer, morning star, night blade, poacher’s cudgel, poison whittle, sonar pulse, finesse, arts, chain, dust trick, and thief’s wit.
All of these items are only found in the standard loot table and can be obtained through normal questing or looting. The dual proficiencies on the other hand can only be unlocked through a special trait called the Master of Gambling. Rogues can also choose from one of the following specializations: skirmisher, trickster, mystic, explorer, golemancer, swordsman, and warlock. Rogue 5e is all about using your dice and your abilities to make the right kind of deals.
Rogue 5e bonuses :
At level 10 you receive a brand new talent tree called the Fleet. This new talent tree allows rogues to get bonuses from their stealth and sneak attacks. Every thief class gets access to the following talents at level 10: bonus damage dice, critical chance buff, dodge buff, crit chance buff, teamwork buff, hit buff, spirit buff, and expertise buff. These bonuses are not listed on the Feat and Skill trees like most other classes. This makes Rogue 5e harder to play than other MMOs.
The Rogue 5e proficiencies are quite dependable and you can be sure that every player will have a few good options for where to place their hit points, block skill sets, and trap locations. Some Proficiencies have gem slots while others don’t. The idea is that rogues are able to place their hit points, block skill sets, and trap locations in areas that are not vulnerable to enemy attacks or distractions. If you think that you won’t need to rely on traps too much and will only be needing the hit points then the proficiencies that don’t place hit points in the obvious places could be a good option to take.
