TACTICS

Before Combat The rogue drinks a potion of resist energy if he expects his target to use energy attacks and uses shield on himself.

During Combat The rogue uses Sickening Critical or Intimidate to hinder opponents so he can use Shatter Defenses to sneak attack them. If the opponent has magical protections, the rogue uses the dispelling attack rogue talent to break those defenses.
