Sneak Attack 5E: You will find sneak attacks in the Rogues class where rogues are extremely versatile. They are not like the damage machines which we saw in the fourth edition or they do not type of sit in the back kinds we saw in earlier editions. You get all the spells you need and you get a bonus of three or four which really keeps the adrenaline going.
Sneak Attack 5e (D&D)
When you play a rogue, you can fulfil all the characters that you would like to play like a mastermind or a thief with classic tricks. Rogue doesn’t get the sneakiest parts like shadow monk but it does tons of sneakier activities like supplement with the fog cloud, illusion, invisibility. There are many moments when you do sneakier things like when you stuck in a factory and your task is to hide and not let anyone know that you are in it. They have to sneak in with leaving any trace. It is the combination of tricks and magic which allowed them to sneak.
It’s not up to the Paladin or Rangers level of damage but still, it is very entertaining. It is more of the support role for Paladins and Rangers I mean once they have done their thing than Rogues comes up with their sneakier attacks and do the final things. First few levels you are very much entertained and you can always work on the ability scores but at the third or fourth level, you get bored and you have nothing to do. It’s not with Rogues I mean they have many things to do all the time.
You have multiple roles while playing as a Rogue and some of them are as follows:
- Meaningful participation in social games
- Meaningful participation in the exploration games
- You have all the access to the combats
- You can participate as a support role to the direct characters
- You can examine every danger before your mates stuck into it
There is a moment in the campaign where a Druid is in the fog environment and you have to sneak in there and steal the ring, thanks to Rogue it was possible but not with any other character. The rogues have tools for everything I mean they have this utility belt and all kind of gadgets just like Batman. Rogues are the perfect thieves with classical tricks and moves make them best sneakers around.
Rogues also carry common stuff with them like sand and roses like if there is an invisible character around, he would just throw sand and check if there is someone or not. He has roses to check up with the secret doors and you always love to have a character like Rogue to have so many sneakier things with him.
Rogue is also like an on-field detective who would probably look for traps or searching with a knife if there is something dangerous in there. You tap the section of the floor so that none of your team members gets into it.
