Free-to-play MMORPG Neverwinter shows off Trickster Rogue class in gameplay trailer
Neverwinter is a free-to-play MMORPG coming to PC sometime in 2013. From Perfect World Entertainment, the action-combat MMORPG is set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms world. Today, they've highlighted one of their classes -- The Trickster Rogue -- in a gameplay trailer that shows off some of its strengths and attacks. Scroll down for the trailer.
The Trickster Rogue is a lightly armored, melee class that focuses on lightning-fast attacks and evading. The key to success is knowing when to dodge or counter enemy attacks. The basic attack is Sly Flourish, mapped to the left mouse button. It is a quick combination of slashes that deals moderate damage to enemies. The Trickster Rogue's alternate attack, mapped to the right mouse button, is Deft Strike -- putting the Trickster Rogue behind an enemy to deal more damage to the enemy's unprotected flank. To evade, pressing the shift key and a movement direction will make you roll.
The first encounter ability that the Trickster Rogue receives is Dazing Strike -- you leap into the air, crashing down on the enemy to daze and prevent the foe from attacking for a short period of time. Bloodbath is the first daily power the Trickster Rogue obtains. It has the Rogue dash around the battlefield while slashing opponents with powerful attacks. When active, the Trickster Rogue is immune to damage and control effects.
Overall, the Trickster Rogue is a fast-paced class with tons of damage, just how any Rogue class should be.
