By far the most popular of all the classes in rift is the rogue and it makes sense to choose this character because leveling up is a lot faster with a rift rogue. The reason this class can level faster is that not only are it’s attacks very potent but it also has the self heal ability, making the rogue a fearsome fighter. Check out a few rift forums and you will notice that a high percentage of the top players are rogues.
Any rift rogue leveling guide worth it’s salt will show you the correct soul combos needed and these are rather simple with a rogue. Basically just choose two attacking souls and one non attack or defensive soul and your build will be fine for leveling. A cool rogue build is Marksman for the main soul with Ranger as your second and finally use the Bard, this particular rogue build will last you all the way up to level 50.
When it comes to fighting the rogue is perfect for long ranged attacks, I love this because you can keep your distance and keep safe while slaying your opponents. The rogue is not for you if you like to be in the thick of the action but if you like to hit and run tactics then you should choose this class. Personally I love to play rift this way, keeping my distance and dealing damage from a distance while I watch the other players rush in and die quickly.
In this rift rogue leveling guide I suggest trying the Marksman as your main soul, the Ranger next and finally the Riftstalker. Your ranger soul is great because it will soak up a lot of damage with it’s pet while riftstaker will let you heal your pet, it’s vital to keep your pet healthy. The marksman soul is chosen for attack, some of the mid ranged attacks you get with this soul are great, such as empowered shot and splinter shot.
This is only a basic rift rogue leveling guide that just covers the basics of the planes of telera but as you can see the rogue is quite a simple character to level up with. Just look around next time you play and you will see more high level rogues than any other class. The reason that the rift rogue is able to level up faster than the others is that the rogue attacks from a distance and has superb self healing powers.
