Quote from World of Warcraft Classic User Manual
The rogue is one of the most lethal character classes in the game, able to deal out immense damage in a short period of time. The most effective rogues sneak through the shadows without detection, and then strike enemies from behind with a flurry of assassination attacks. Yet, for all their fast-hitting power, rogues are not very durable, relying on quickness and stealth for protection instead of armor and high health.

Rogue Class Best Race

The Rogue Class Best Race is another tough choice, there are so many races to choose from. For Horde players, we think you should pick Orc or Undead due to the racial traits benefiting the Stealth type of gameplay. Alliance Players have two really strong options Dwarves are just simply good for PVP content which is where the Rogue Class tends to do best. You also have the Night Elf which with their Racial Traits just fits the Rogue playstyle very well, you can view more information about this by visiting the link below.

  • Best  –  Orc,  Dwarves,  Undead,  Night Elf
  • Average  –   Troll,  Gnome,  Humans
  • Weak  –
  • Not Available –  Tauren

WoW Classic Rogue Best Weapon To Use

List of WoW Classic Rogue Weapons you can use, you may have to visit your trainer to learn the ability to use these weapons.

  • Common Weapon Skills – Daggers, Thrown, Unarmed
  • Advanced Weapon Skills – Bows, Crossbows, Fist Weapons, Guns, One-Handed Maces, One-Handed Swords
  • Armor Type You Can Use – Cloth, Leather

Best Profession For Rogue

The Best Profession for Rogue Class will likely be Engineering and Mining since the rogue class in most viable within PVP it just makes sense to grab engineering as it provides a lot options for PVP players. Leatherworking is a good second choice since you can craft your own leather gear with this profession. We lean more towards engineering because of PVP, but this profession can also help with your damage in dungeons or raids.

  • Best  –  Engineering +  Mining OR  Leatherworking +  Skinning


World of Warcraft Classic Rogue Class Talent Spec

Rogue Spec Roles

The Rogue Class is another full of DPS Specs and is most used within PVP Battlegrounds and is consider one of the best PVP Classes. The rogue also lacks AOE which is important for Dungeon/Raid DPS Roles and some cases players may be able to Off-Tank a Boss or Mobs for short periods of time using Evasion Ability and Cooldown Refresh Abilities.

  • DPS Rogue DPS Spec –  rogue_combat Combat, rogue_subtlety Subtlety, rogue_assassination Assassination
  • Healing Rogue Healer Spec – N/A
  • Tank Rogue Tank Spec – N/A

Best Rogue Class Spec

We consider the Best Rogue Class Spec to be between the Combat spec which we recommend as the ideal levelling 1-60 talent spec in Classic WoW. Subtlety does really well in PVP giving you more option when trying to kill enemies and escape, as rogue being able to stay alive is huge. Assassination is also a solid choice and has some useful talents like Expose Armor which does really good against Plate Wearing Classes like Paladins and Warriors.

  • Best  –  rogue_combat Combat, rogue_subtlety Subtlety
  • Average  – rogue_assassination Assassination
  • Weak  –
