Rogue Perks

Like many classes in EFU Rogues have a large list of perks to choose from. However unlike most classes they get to choose multiple perks - one at level 4, 6 and 8, with level 8 perks being more powerful. Also unlike most classes, you will always receive your perk benefits once earned, even if you fall in levels.

Rogue on EFU is a very versatile class, able to fill a lot of different roles. Although it works well in combination as a multiclass, the EFU DM team would give this additional incentive to remain pure and help better realize your character's concept through sixteen new perks added specifically for rogues - as a bonus to the selection already available.

You may select perks by opening your character's Crafting Menu. You cannot change your perks once they are chosen.
