Rogue Specializations

Assassin

Talent-MarkofDeath icon
Mark of Death
  • Activated
  • Range: Short
  • Activation: 40
  • Cooldown: 60s
The assassin marks a target, revealing weaknesses that others can exploit. All attacks against a marked target deal additional damage.
Talent-ExploitWeakness icon

Talent-FeastoftheFallen icon
Feast of the Fallen
  • Passive
  • Requires: Level 16
The assassin thrives on the moment of death. Stamina is partially restored whenever the assassin fells an opponent with a backstab
Note: This doesn't work with critical hits as they do not count as actual backstabs.

Talent-SongOfValor icon
Song of Valor
  • Sustained
  • Range: Personal
  • Upkeep: 50
  • Fatigue: 5%
  • Cooldown: 30s

The bard launches into an epic song of the party’s exploits, granting them bonuses to attack, damage, and critical chance. The size of the bonuses are affected by the bard’s cunning. The bard can only sing one song at a time.
Note: The bonuses are determined when the bard begins singing the song; changing equipment while the song is active does not change the effect. The bonuses apply equally to melee and ranged attacks, but not to staff attacks. Total bonuses: Attack: (Cunning - 5)/10 + 2. Damage (as displayed on Equipment screen): Cunning/20 + 1.5 + X. Same bonus to each hand if dual wielding. X = 0 for dual wield, single wield mace, bow. X = 0.2 for single wield long sword. X = 0.9 for single wield dagger. Critical chance %: Cunning/10 + 2.

Warrior Specializations

Berserker

Talent-Berserk icon
Berserk
  • Sustained
  • Upkeep: 20
  • Fatigue: 5%
  • Cooldown: 30s
The stench of blood and death drives the berserker into a willing fury, providing a bonus to damage. Rages incur a penalty to stamina regeneration, however, which Constraint reduces. Resilience adds a bonus to health regeneration in this mode.
Note: Gives +8 damage, and an unmentioned +10 mental resistance (with Resilience). Penalty is -2 stamina, which means that without stamina regeneration bonuses, you will lose stamina in combat at the rate you would normally gain it.
Talent-Resilience icon
Resilience
  • Passive
  • Requires Level: 8
Rages no longer wear so heavily on the berserker’s body. The stamina regeneration penalty applied by Berserk is reduced, and the berserker gains a bonus to nature resistance (+5 nature resistance).
Note: The in-game description is completely accurate, it actually gives the bonuses as described by the Berserk talent: +1.5 health regeneration.
Talent-Constraint icon
Constraint
  • Passive
  • Requires Level: 10
The berserker has learned to retain control during rages, reducing Berserk’s penalty to stamina regeneration.
Note: Gives +2 stamina regeneration while berserk, which completely off-sets the Berserk penalty.

Final Blow
  • Activated
  • Range: Personal
  • Activation: 5
  • Cooldown: 60s
  • Requires: Level 12
All the berserker’s stamina goes into a single swing. If the blow connects, the attack inflicts extra damage proportional to the amount of stamina lost.
Note: Rate of conversion is +1 damage for every -2 stamina.

Champion

Talent-WarCry icon
War Cry
  • Activated
  • Range: Personal
  • Activation: 25
  • Cooldown: 20s
The champion lets out a fearsome cry that gives nearby enemies a penalty to attack. With Superiority, nearby enemies are also knocked down unless they pass a physical resistance check.

Talent-Rally icon
Rally
  • Sustained
  • Range: Personal
  • Upkeep: 50
  • Fatigue: 5%
  • Cooldown: 30s
  • Requires: 12
The champion’s presence inspires nearby allies, giving them bonuses to attack and defense while this mode is active. When coupled with Motivate, the attack bonus increases.
Note: Area of Effect: 10ft. This gives +10 defense, but, contrary to the description (and consistent with the motivate description), nothing to attack. This mode also causes you to slowly drain stamina in combat rather than gain, although this is not mentioned in the skill.
Talent-Motivate icon
Motivate
  • Passive
  • Requires: 14
The champion inspires allies to attack with renewed vigor. The Rally talent now increases attack, in addition to its defense bonus.
Note: Gives +10 attack while under Rally.
Talent-Superiority icon
Superiority
  • Passive
  • Requires: 16
The champion is so fearsome that War Cry now knocks nearby opponents off their feet unless they pass a physical resistance check.

Reaver

Frightening Appearance
  • Activated
  • Range: Personal
  • Activation: 25
  • Cooldown: 20s
  • Requires: Level 12
This talent focuses the Reaver’s unsettling countenance into a weapon, making a target cower in fear unless it passes a mental resistance check. Frightening Appearance also increases the effectiveness of Taunt and Threaten by 100 and 1 respectively.
Note: Fears target that fail mental resistance check against Reaver's Strength for 10.0 *(Target Rank Duration Modifier) sec.
Aura of Pain
  • Sustained
  • Upkeep: 60
  • Fatigue: 5%
  • Cooldown: 45s
  • Requires: Level 14
Radiating an aura of psychic pain, the reaver takes constant spirit damage while this mode is active, as do all enemies nearby.

Blood Frenzy
  • Sustained
  • Upkeep: 60
  • Fatigue: 5%
  • Cooldown: 60s
  • Requires: Level 16
Driven by pain, the reaver gains larger bonuses to damage whenever health decreases. Because this mode also incurs a penalty to health regeneration, the reaver flirts with death the longer the frenzy persists.
