With max Intimidate, the dagger gank rogue can level quickly with copied skills (Bowling Bash× and Raging Trifecta Blow× the most common). Sword Mastery boosts damage with both daggers and one-handed swords, and Gank doubles loot gain. The more money-minded can max Mug in exchange for levels in Sword Mastery or Intimidate.
Stats-wise, high STR and high AGI will guarantee swift and powerful attacks. VIT is less important, since AGI will provide enough flee to dodge most attacks. The dagger gank rogue excells in PvM and will level quickly to achieve Stalker, should PvP or WoE be the ultimate goal.
Strip rogues are ideal for a PvP or WoE setting. Divest Weapon will render many melee classes useless (particularly swordsman classes and emp-breaking assassins), while Divest Armor, Divest Shield, and Divest Helm will negate damage-reducing cards and equips.
The strip rogue has high VIT for survivability, along with high DEX for successful divests and moderate INT for a good SP pool (since divests drain SP quickly). A small investment in the Double Strafe or Intimidate trees will make PvM leveling easier.
Weapons: Quadruple Carded Composite Bow (preferably +7 to +10 to make up for the low ATK), Double Carded Gakkung or Double Carded Arbalest
Bow rogues can snipe enemies from afar with Vulture's Eye and Double Strafe, then deal extra damage with a copied skill via Intimidate. If feeling PvP or WoE oriented, they can sacrifice levels in the Double Strafe or Intimidate trees for some strip skills. However, only the first divests will probably be obtained (Divest Helm and Divest Shield), lest the bow rogue wishes to become a strip rogue (in which case the strip rogue build would be more useful).
The bow rogue has high DEX and high AGI for quick and devastating damage via bows. Moderate INT ensures a steady SP supply for intimidated skill spamming.
Weapons: Quadruple Carded Composite Bow (preferably +7 to +10 to make up for the low ATK), Double Carded Gakkung or Double Carded Arbalest. While previously the Sidewinder Card was preferred for bows used by rogues (because it allows the full level 10 Double Attack to be used with bows), the kafra shop Chick Hat item which has the same effect, has largely made this obsolete.
You can use some damage reduction cards>×. Bow Rogues are limited to wearing guards. You cannot attack with a bow while your guard is equipped, because bows are two handed weapons.
