---------
For Human (Dagger)
Rogue -> Ruffian -> Thief -> Assassin/Treasure Hunter -> Blade Taker/Entrapper

~~~~~~~~~
This is more of a Recommended skill guide with descriptions, I won't detail every skill, I can just detail the ones that are mostly (Or At least in my opinion should be) used..
~~~~~~~~~
Skills (Active)
Ruffian:

-Dusk Slashing (Max) [Does dmg with a chance of bleeding.]

-Rage Step (At least 1 point into) [Does low dmg with a chance of stunning.]

-Wind Breaking (MAX! MAX! MAX! THIS FRIGGEN SKILL!) [AoE, as an elf, this will be your absolute ONLY AoE for a very long time.]

-Perforate (At least 1 point) [It does very good dmg, no debuff other than frequent one hit kills.]
=-=-=-=
Skills (Passive and Optionals)
Ruffian:

-Zephyr (Good skill worth maxing) [Increases Dex stat by 10, useful for any skill build.]

-Blind Sight (Max) [Increases crit chance.]

-Eagle eye (I personally maxed it, every little bit helps) [Increases hit rate]

-Light Armor Expertise (Max for the extra defense {This is my personal opinion to this skill, all aside, its not to useful unless you plan to max it, even then the defense buff isnt to good, I still maxed it anyways.}) [Adds defense]

Stat Builds
~ ~
Ranking:
* = so/so
** = pretty good
*** = my personal choice because it rocks all around imo.
Pure str

Pure dex

Pure vit

Pure wis

Pure intel

2 str, 1 dex


2 str, 1 vit


2 dex, 1 vit


2 dex, 1 str


2 vit, 1 dex


2 vit, 1 str


This is the Stat (not really a guide) Guide by istabu.

My personal belief is any pure class is going to end up being a failure in the later lvls...
Simple because you are leaving other, valuable stats out in the rain. I endorse hybrid stat (NOT skill builds) for the fact that in later lvls, your armor will give you bonus to overshadow most of your stats, so think ahed and start spreading stat points over what you think the armor WONT cover...feedback will always be nice...

But, I guess I can go into detail of the builds and which playstyle they seem to fit best...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Stat Builds according to Playstyles:

-Pure Str : A robotic build, it seems as though almost any high lvl will endorse this stat, minus high lvl mages. From my reading and observations in game, this build tends to be towards those who want to kill fast, and in game, That translates into killing fast or you getting killed faster...For a Rogue I would suppose with those beautiful passives and buffs that Pure str is a decent build to go with, Eva, combined with the shields block rate, that should allow plenty of defense so IF you get hit before killing the other mob, they won't OHKO you. (One Hit Knock Out). ~~~ {After making a Pure str archer, I firmly endorse this stat for archers.}

-Pure Dex : A often used build, even with my favorite stat being a pure, it can turn from love to absolute hatred. It is nice almost never getting hit, I would know, But it can really be a pain having to rely on almost nothing but Wind Breaking and Perforate as your main PVE skills...I Have seen pure dex's getting killing VERY easily in pvp, but I guess pvp in general depends on your stat build, skill build, and your experience with those 2 combined...other than those, it can be a great build for solo-aoeing, as can be Pure Str, but Pure dex is a more flexible solo-tanking build in my opinion. Simple because the extra Eva combined with the block rate of a shield can allow you to mob for longer periods, with pure str you have to hope and pray that your AoE hits everything, if it doesn't, get ready to start kitting. (Hit and run.)

-Pure Vit : I have no real information on this aside from it being a decent pvp build, plenty of hp is always nice, but my hp is on par with pure vits even though I am a hybrid stat build..so that should be enough to tell you that this build isn't exactly a wise choice....that was a comparison from my lvl 46 scout to istabu's lvl 44 pure vit rogue.

-Pure Intel/Wis : I honestly don't need to even write a con/con list about this do I ? sure having mp is cool, but being dead around every corner sucks...don't even bother. =/

-2 STR, 1 DEX : An understandable decent hybrid build, something I MUST STRESS is that WHICHEVER stat gets 2 points, you HAVE to cap that off at 100 points, then go pure on the stat which only gets one point, it WILL even itself out in the later lvls..

-2 STR, 1 VIT : Eh more of a tankers build, if you are wanting to tank, go with this and plenty of eva buffs

-2 DEX, 1 STR : Ah my build, capped 100 dex, fantastic evasion, fantastic hit rate, fantastic crit rate....plenty of dmg comes in once you hit 100 dex...I havnt personally had any real issues with this build. I am not going to call it the perfect build, but I use it for just all around bad-assery. Decent in pvp, awesome solo-aoe, awesome small team tank, self supported thanks to nature aid...If anyone finds a flaw in this build, please do tell me, and I can find a solution ^.~

-2 DEX, 1 VIT : I have yet to try this build, purely because I can practically sniff failure on it...I suppose its play style would lean more towards the tanking spot, so you could try that...I have yet to really try and fully test this build...and I honestly don't plan to...anyone else who wants to test it out to the fullest extent by all means do so, I will include your words and your name to show that you helped build this guide

-2 VIT, 1 STR : Plenty of HP and dmg, more of the AoE's style of build, kill quickly and IF you draw the aggro, your hp will go down, but [hopefully] not all the way down...I have yet to test this build as well

-2 VIT, 1 DEX : As with the last 2 builds, I have yet to test this one, and the testing spot is open for it. Test it, get a decent little guide wrote, and I will put it in this very spot along with your name as a sort of reward.

-------------------------------
Leveling Section
~ ~
The Ultimate way of lvling for 1-50 would be quest, DO every quest you have as many times as you can, extra exp is always nice, plus most quest give fairly decent gold...But I will include places to grind in for certain lvls for those who dislike questing and would prefer to just purely grind:
Leveling Spots:

-Lvl 1- 10 in Gate of Alker
-Lvl 11-20 Ruins of Draconian/Zakandia outpost
-Lvl 21-30 Zakandia (outside of the town)/Tarintus
-Lvl 31-34 Moon Blind Forest
-Lvl 35-36 Moon Blind Swamp
-Lvl 37-45 Red Orc Outpost
-Lvl 46-50 Way to Howel Ravine
-Lvl 51-55 Mont Blanc Port
-Lvl 56-62 Dryed Gazell Falls
-Lvl 63-73/75 Wind Valley Cave, 2nd floor, mid left
