View Full Version : Rogues can Solo and Farm with All DEX OR some STR gear??

01-04-2013, 09:20 PM
Hello! I asked in the Warrior class section if they could solo with a modified Hybrid build but also asked about Rogues soloing. I think asking it here is the only place to ask it, so can a Rogue solo tough maps or even Elite PLUS Farm for pinks/Eggs? Of so, do you achieve it by a mostly DEX build with some STR or all DEX with some STR gear or rings?

I have a level 10 Rogue which I plan to buy the winter fury pack when she's at level 16 or maybe wait until she is 20? I will buy her good gear though in the meantime, if the rogue can solo at times when the groups are very small, no one is even in the area or much lower level people.

Is this possible??? I plan to buy $70 or more in plat, so I don't want to waste it on a class that won't meet my needs. Thanks!

Rogue soloing elite map is not a good idea but if u have good gear, then u can solo normal maps easily with full dex

I would wait until my rogue was level 21 to try to farm elite of course but looks like normal maps will be fine for level 20.

Thanks! I will scour the threads for correct gear. Thank you again

Top tier gear with pots, no problem. Efficient? Maybe, maybe not. I usually leave soloing for giggles.

POTS POWAH!!!! Yeah you can solo anything its just a matter how much you power press that pots of yours.

It depends on many factors, build, skill set, gear, the ammount of potions you have and the you are using. Ive soloed a number of elite maps.

Soloing elite maps isn't hard. I just burn through a bunch of health pots to survive

Soloing with a rogue is possible in elite maps at level 20. If you try to do it with minimal pots, the run is very, very slow, because you have to pick off smaller groups and if a large mob is aggroed, you have to run until some of them reset. Now, if you want to just launch in like Rambo, and you don't care about deaths, then the run is a bit faster, or if you have hundreds of HP and Mana pots to burn.

Personally, the only elite map I attempt is Elite Jarl. I rush to the boss, kill him, then leave - I've burned way too many pots to get to Thunk only to have the archers continually spawning.

Rogues are lots of fun, but you've got to have top end gear to solo effectively. You should also have a Watch Bow AND a top end dagger (ALP or HeartSeeker) and switch between them for bosses and mobs respectively.

I guess it's probably too late, but on the other part of the question, I'd buy the Winter Fury Pack at level 10. It's pretty handy to get the extra inventory slots and so on and the gear is pretty good for that level and will help through a number of levels. Once you're at 16 and beyond, you'd likely be wanting the higher power gear from drops.

Thanks for all your replies, they have been very helpful! :D

Adding strength to a rogue build is detrimental and causes a net loss in overall stats. This is because dex/int also contribute to strength in addition to their respective stats while strength contributes only to itself.

With the best available lvl 21 gear, yes.
Does it consume lots of pots? (oh so poetic!) - yes.
Do u gain gold or lose it? - mostly lose with recent drop rate
Is there any sense at all? - nope

The gear im using is the agile ranger cloak of will, agile leather of security, buble of brutaility, spellbound of potency, and agile liefthief of force 20-21. My build was 20-100-20 with 1 dex and crit passive. My skill set maxed aimed shot and shadow storm assault with 3-4 in both shadow veil and razzor sheild.

Use alot of potions and gain gold if i get lucky.
