↖ Weapon Wisdom: Choose Your Arsenal Wisely
Your starting dagger is a stepping stone to becoming a better Rogue. For abilities like Sinister Strike and Shadowstrike that do not require a dagger's edge, go for swords, maces or fist weapons which are more powerful. These alternatives boost your damage output due to mechanics used in the game's calculations. Stormwind provides sword training for Alliance Rogues or mace mastery can be learnt in Ironforge. Horde counterparts will find their training in Undercity for swords and Thunder Bluff for maces. Remember that the faster you replace your beginner's dagger, the quicker you will move up the ladder.
↖ Profession Prowess: First Aid First
While it may seem tempting to delve into professions such as leatherworking or engineering during your ascent, consider the time investment versus immediate benefits in order to reach max level sooner; however one exception stands out: First Aid – this invaluable skill allows rogues to heal quickly without relying on mana pool. Be ready to fight off attacks while keeping bandages handy.
↖ Bag Bounty: Space Equals Pace
Inventory management might seem trivial but it is essential in leveling efficiently. Limited bag space results in frequent unnecessary trips back home. Buy bags from auction house or other players early on expanding on your carrying capacity while avoiding vendors bags because they are overpriced. Six-slot bags can make all the difference when it comes to maintaining speed.
↖ Mainhand Mastery: Damage That Delivers
Your main hand weapon will determine how effective you are in combat. When upgrading this slot, prioritize those that improve your DPS (damage per second) and select weapons that have higher damage per hit but slower speeds for maximum impact. This strategy ensures dispatching enemies faster and less time spent regenerating between encounters.
↖ Rune Readiness: Shadowstrike to Deadly Brew
The Shadowstrike Rune is a force to be reckoned with in Phase One that you can get early on. It costs little energy yet delivers the highest damage of any Rogue ability and lets you teleport to an enemy target. Thus, it stands out as the best option for speed leveling. Once you advance, consider adding the Deadly Brew Rune to your chest piece and it will boost your damage against weaker enemies. When dealing with stronger foes or completing elite quests, switch on a defensive rune such as Just a Flesh Wound or Blade Dance – they will help increase your chances of survival.
↖ Talent Tactics: Solo and Dungeon Build
Match your talent build with the way in which you want to level up. For solo play, concentrate more on talents that enhance individual fighting ability such as Improved Sinister Strike, Remorseless Attacks and at level 22 Reposte which provides disarmament and damage advantages; in contrast dungeon-oriented rogues should focus on maximizing backstab efficiency through talents like Improved Backstab and Opportunity.
↖ Quest Quirks: Poisons and Deadly Brew Rune
When she reaches level 20, she would qualify for the poison quest and the Deadly Brew Rune quest - though we suggest waiting until level 22 to get access to Distract and Vanish spells, which will make these much easier. Go towards Westfall's tower for Alliance Rogues; Horde rogues will take on the Barrens' tower challenges. After you have completed these quests, you will unlock major class abilities and runes that enhance your capability.
The highlight of Shadowfang Keep is the Deadly Brew Rune quest - make sure you are alone when you enter in order to spawn the necessary quest mobs. Use stealth ability as well as pick pocketing skill to go through this dungeon with style.
↖ Conclusion: Raid Ready
By taking these insights into account for your rogue character, you can be prepared for raiding during season one of phase one of discovery. Though this guide is current content specific, these foundational techniques remain applicable throughout all future phases.
