FFXIV - Disciples of War - Rogue





These agile fighters pride themselves on their skills with knives and daggers to make quick work of enemies.

Lurking in the shadows, adhering to no laws but their own, they punish the wicked, pilfering their ill-gotten gains and delivering them to the downtrodden masses. Thought by many to be mere common criminals, some would say they play an unseen hand in maintaining order in the buccaneer's haven of Limsa Lominsa.

Rogue was added in patch 2.4 of FFXIV: ARR along with its job Ninja, which can be obtained by completing quests.

As a Rogue you should be focusing on DEX as this increases attack power by Rogues and Ninjas.


Actions


Actions are skills that the Rogue can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Rogue actions are exclusive to that job.

Role Actions


Since the A Realm Reborn expansion for FFXIV, cross class actions were removed and replaced with the concept of "role" actions.

Thanks,

I've corrected it. It seems there was a translation issue with the skill when 2.4 went live.

Shadowstalker is supposed to be the "Enhanced Sneak Attack" trait that increases the potency to 500 when executed in front of the target!
