    After a break, i’ve played through Dune Sea on the final path of the Rogue.

    As well as Haggler’s Pride, the vault holds Golden Gun with the ricochet ability to swap in if facing multiple opponents.

    I enjoyed playing as a Rogue - it felt stripped back and straight forward. The lower health was well balanced in the book by making it easier for Rogue’s to avoid some of the heavy passive damage with speed tests.

    Rogue’s can also hit 11 speed by either getting the +2Sp feet items from the silk merchant or defeating the sand whale, before doing the blue quest in Act 2.

    One thing I didn’t get with the Rogue was the mechanical scorpion pet. By the time you get it you are normally facing opponents with such high armour that it is extremely unlikely (sometimes impossible) for the scorpion to inflict damage and thus it’s speed reducing effect.

    Thanks for sharing this! Always uplifting for me to get feedback and see the heroes that readers are creating.

    Glad that you found the rogue update and play style fun.

    Concerning the metal scorpion - remember its sting activates when it does health damage. So, if in aggressive stance, an enemy will inflict its damage against the scorpion - and as per the pet rules, the scorpion will inflict damage back (*ignoring armour*) equal to its brawn/magic.

    So, the scorpion will ignore an opponent's armour with its attack.
