But in 5E my daughter has played a Rogue a couple of times, and she's so effective in combat that her nickname has been “Ginsu”. She carves through the opposition like nobody's business, and my friends (who introduced me to 5E) have raved about how strong Rogues are now.

I've played one myself (created and ran an Arcane Trickster) for a single session; even he was pretty effective. They pretty much pull the party through on a lot of situations like sneaking past guards or climbing sheer walls.

A battle master's commander's strike is amazing with a rogue in the party. So as a class it sort of depends on your GM or the other players. If the campaign is skill check light and your party doesn't co-ordinate tactically, other classes are going to be better.

The fact that rogues can get sneak attacks with missile weapons (assuming a useful tank in the party to engage in melee) and keep their squishy bodies safer really helps too. Played two at fairly low level and been pretty impressed by them (Halfling Light foot rogue abusing the Naturally Stealthy Rules who eventually went squish) and now playing a Forest Gnome Arcane Trickster.

And an Assassin's Alpha Strike if you get to attack from surprise is pretty nasty. You can't be competent at everything a rogue could do, but you can be competent at a lot, And at level 11 you get Reliable Talent Whenever you make an ability check that lets you add your proficiency bonus, you can treat a d20 roll of 9 or lower as a 10.

This very simple ability you get at level two along with the way you can move before, after and during your action in 5E brilliantly provides rogues with the sort of slippery agility that they always felt they should have Due to using your bonus action it is kinda mutually exclusive with dual wielding weapons, but not sure this is such a bad thing And frankly, I've enjoyed playing him as a professional man, an agent, for his lord.

The GM and group also enjoy that whenever someone in the party does something dumb or very “adventurers,” I roll Migraine damage based on how much it offended his sensibilities. My one 5e character I play in AL games is a Rogue (Arcane Trickster)/Ranger (Hunter).

It is true that a Bard that effectively applies Rouge can do well with Persuasion, Performance and sometimes Disguise skill checks. Sign Up for free (or Log In if you already have an account) to be able to post messages, change how messages are displayed, and view media in posts.

I don't like that they get sneak attack damage so easily in 5E, so whenever I DM, I tell my players they only etc sneak attack damage if they're flanking or have advantage on ranged attacks. Is this gimping he class too much? They have little function to do game besides dealing hp damage to things unless you count cleaning up a few skill checks that casters don't deign to waste spell slots on solving automatically. I don't understand what exactly your problem with Sneak Attack is but nerfing it has the vibe of stealing lunch money from a disabled child.

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress. I think they wrote it that way to make it easier for groups who aren't using a grid. Your nerf probably won't affect melee rogues too much as they can disengage using cunning action and then move do that they are flanking.

Doesn't it allow the Rogue to out DPS most classes while safely being out of range if it just got sneak attack on every ranged attack though?

Lihlih posted... Rogues used to be amazing because of their sneak attack damage. FlyinBrian posted... without extra attacks, sneak attacks are basically the only way rogues can keep up in damage Huh, I guess this makes sense.

I only ran with stock rules in low level games, and our Rogue just seemed so goddamn broken. They have a knack for finding the solution to just about any problem, demonstrating a resourcefulness and versatility that is the cornerstone of any successful adventuring party.

At 6th level, you can choose two more of your proficiencies (in skills or with thieves' tools) to gain this benefit. Beginning at 1st level, you know how to strike subtly and exploit a foe's distraction.

The amount of the extra damage increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown in the Sneak Attack column of the Rogue table. During your rogue training you learned thieves' can't, a secret mix of dialect, jargon, and code that allows you to hide messages in seemingly normal conversation.

It takes four times longer to convey such a message than it does to speak the same idea plainly. In addition, you understand a set of secret signs and symbols used to convey short, simple messages, such as whether an area is dangerous or the territory of a thieves' guild, whether loot is nearby, or whether the people in an area are easy marks or will provide a safe house for thieves on the run.

At 3rd level, you choose an archetype that you emulate in the exercise of your rogue abilities. At 3rd level, as a bonus action, you give yourself advantage on your next attack roll on the current turn.

As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature. Beginning at 7th level, you can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a red dragon's fiery breath or an Ice Storm spell.

By 11th level, you have refined your chosen skills until they approach perfection. Whenever you make an ability check that lets you add your proficiency bonus, you can treat a d20 roll of 9 or lower as a 10.

Starting at 14th level, if you are able to hear, you are aware of the location of any hidden or invisible creature within 10 feet of you. Beginning at 18th level, you are so evasive that attackers rarely gain the upper hand against you.

Alternatively, if you fail an ability check, you can treat the d20 roll as a 20. Once you use this feature, you can't use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

She presses an ear to the door, then pulls out a set of tools and picks the lock in the blink of an eye. Then she disappears into the shadows as her fighter friend moves forward to kick the door open.

Suppressing a giggle, a gnome waggles her fingers and magically lifts the key ring from the guard’s belt. In a moment, the keys are in her hand, the cell door is open, and she and her companions are free to make their escape.

Rogues rely on skill, stealth, and their foes’ vulnerabilities to get the upper hand in any situation. They have a knack for finding the solution to just about any problem, demonstrating a resourcefulness and versatility that is the cornerstone of any successful adventuring party.

Rogues devote as much effort to mastering the use of a variety of skills as they do to perfecting their combat abilities, giving them a broad expertise that few other characters can match. Many rogues focus on stealth and deception, while others refine the skills that help them in a dungeon environment, such as climbing, finding and disarming traps, and opening locks.

Some are hardened criminals who decide to seek their fortune in treasure hoards, while others take up a life of adventure to escape from the law. Some have learned and perfected their skills with the explicit purpose of infiltrating ancient ruins and hidden crypts in search of treasure.

Sneak Attack Beginning at 1st level, you know how to strike subtly and exploit a foe’s distraction. The amount of the extra damage increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown in the Sneak Attack column of the Rogue table.

In addition, you understand a set of secret signs and symbols used to convey short, simple messages, such as whether an area is dangerous or the territory of a thieves’ guild, whether loot is nearby, or whether the people in an area are easy marks or will provide a safe house for thieves on the run. Evasion Beginning at 7th level, you can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as an ancient red dragon’s fiery breath or an ice storm spell.

Whenever you make an ability check that lets you add your proficiency bonus, you can treat a d20 roll of 9 or lower as a 10. Blind sense Starting at 14th level, if you are able to hear, you are aware of the location of any hidden or invisible creature within 10 feet of you.

Elusive Beginning at 18th level, you are so evasive that attackers rarely gain the upper hand against you. Rogues have many features in common, including their emphasis on perfecting their skills, their precise and deadly approach to combat, and their increasingly quick reflexes.

In addition to improving your agility and stealth, you learn skills useful for delving into ancient ruins, reading unfamiliar languages, and using magic items you normally couldn’t employ. In addition, when you make a running jump, the distance you cover increases by a number of feet equal to your Dexterity modifier.

Supreme Sneak Starting at 9th level, you have advantage on a Dexterity (Stealth) check if you move no more than half your speed on the same turn. Thief’s Reflexes When you reach 17th level, you have become adept at laying ambushes and quickly escaping danger.
