"While two other classes actually use the shadow as a source of magical power, it's the Rogue who can potentially live and breathe the shadow"I've never really drawn any connection whatsoever between the shadow magics employed by warlocks/shadowpriests and the shadows generally used by rogues to lurk in/attack from.Rogues are extremely nonmagical, while all the other classes have to call upon powers beyond themselves to succeed a rogue simply relies on his own cleverness to see him through a tough situation. An opponent getting the best of you? pick up some dirt and blind him with it. That's the kind of shenanigans a rogue has to do on a daily basis to survive.Making it seem like shadow magic and the shadows are one in the same makes rogues seem like gimped warlocks. Sure we're cool enough to hang out in the shadows, maybe throw on a cloak of shadows for maybe 5 seconds, but this guy over here just made the shadows into a ball and blasted some guy with it, wtf?

Yeah, they're confusing "The Shadows" with "Shadow Magic"

It says right in the class description on the character creation screen that, "... rogues rely on a blend of stealth and minor mysticism."

Probably the whole "minor mysticism" is the kind of ninjutsu magic that one sees in ninja movies. Granted some can be so over the top that they realy shouldnt be called ninjas anymore (*cough*naruto*cough*) but some of the things rogues can do are kind of hard to explain without throwing a little magic into it.Shadowstep: He's moving so fast it looks like he's teleportingCloack of shadow: ......he has a cloak made of a cloth that repels magical attacks.Why don't they just wear it all the time?Um....it gets dirty?Why does it make them shadowy and see through? Rogue secret, now bugger off!
