Very nice guide! Would like a bit more tips and tricks on how to use your Shadow Dance, cause when I'm using it it feels like I'm always out of energy, my energy regen also feels very slow. I botted my rogue to 85 so haven't played more than maybe 10h playtime so I'm not very good at rogue, my damage seems fine and I can peel somewhat well too Just gotta learn how to use Shadow Dance offensively really, feels like I'm only using it defensivly, to double cheap shot, or cheap shot melee garotte caster etc
EDIT: I also try to keep my Recuperate up ofc Also, how do you open? Garotte > kidney on casters and cheap shot > kidney on melees or? Or do you use the combo points for recuperate instead of kidney? I'm kinda clueless at this point
First off, thanks!
Shadow dance, it's hard to say when or when not to use it.
As you said, it's really nice to use as a "peel" ability.
I use shadowdance whenever I can't vanish(cd or faerie fire on me), it's also nice to use on mages to get a garrote->stun, to sap out of another CC if you dont got vanish available etc.
About the "out of energy" thing, make sure to have recup up at all points when you swap(with or without dance) and "pool" energy before the swap.
As I said earlier, there's not a direct way to say "use it then, or use it then", it all comes with experience.
Just practise and you will know when to use it.
About openers it all depends on how you decided to open.
If your open with a hard burst, ofc you want to stun the target so it's in place.
Other then that when I open I just use the combos I recieve to get recuperate up as fast as possible and not use kidney in the opener.
