The rogue is one of the playable classes in Dragon Age: Origins and Awakening. Any race can become a rogue. Rogues are crafty combatants who succeed in battle by combining speed, subterfuge, and a wide range of abilities to bring their opponents down in unexpected ways, sometimes before the enemy even perceives danger. Rogues can pick locks with great skill, incapacitate enemies with ease, or sneak up on targets to deliver a devious and crippling backstab. Dexterity and cunning are essential for a rogue, as many rogue and rogue specialization abilities rely on high cunning and dexterity.

Unlike the warrior (who can specialize in any weapon type) or the mage (who is unable to specialize in weapon types), the rogue can place talent points into two weapon types:

Class description Edit

While all classes receive a bonus to attack and critical hit chance attacking from behind, backstabs are a specific, rogue-only type of attack that occurs whenever the rogue is flanking a foe and said foe does not have immunity (such as from Shield Tactics). When in such a position, the rogue gets a bonus to attack and every successful hit will deal critical damage, although will not count as a critical hit for the purposes of shattering. Backstabs cannot become critical hits.

Rogues have access to two weapon talents which are categorized by weapon styles:

Rogues also generate 20% less threat.

Specializations Edit

Note: All four of the original rogue specializations are automatically unlocked after installing the Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening expansion if they were not already unlocked.
Classico assassin Assassin
  • This specialization can be unlocked by Zevran if his approval is high enough, or bought in the Denerim Alienage.
Classico bard Bard
  • This specialization is taught by Leliana if her approval is high enough. It can also be bought from Alimar in Dust Town within Orzammar.
Classico ranger Ranger
Classico duelist Duelist
  • This is unlocked through interaction with Isabela. There are three ways of doing this. These are catching Isabela cheating in a game of cards, cheating during the game with Isabela when dealing if your character is not a rogue or "Getting to know her better." You can find Isabela at The Pearl in Denerim.
