I looked and didn't see a post so I figured I'd create one for us rogues to talk about the class and what we like/dislike and hope to see.
In every MMO I've played I always make a ranger first. I just love the class and shooting stuff from far away, somtimes it can be a pain if you are in a tight space and don't have much room but other than that its always been fun. In EQ2 each rogue got a handful of poisons to use. Each poison did something different, some would cause dmg right away, others would cause dmg over time, some would remove certain stats and others would reduce movement speed and such. You could have three different poison types active at once so for instance a dmg poison, a stat reduction poison and tha movement speed reduction poison.
As a ranger in EQ2 you pretty much wanted to do as much dmg as possible as fast as possible. You always had to have the speed reduction poison because as soon as someone got to you you were dead. Most range attacks wouldn't work if your target was to close or if you were moving so you had to keep them at bay to do dmg to them. So I'm wondering how rangers will be in Rift.
What are your guys/gals thoughts on rangers or just rogues in general? What are you looking forward to the most and what are you the most hesitent about?
