Diablo 4 Rogue Skills

After discussing the skills of all the other Diablo 4 classes (Barbarian, Druid, Sorcerer, and Necromancer), the time has come to discuss those of the final class as well. Diablo 4 Rogue skills are organized into multiple categories, just like the other classes, and each one has its unique quirks. Knowing his skills will be more than valuable knowledge if you intend to approach the dark realms of Sanctuary with this class in order to avoid succumbing to the monstrosities that lurk in his enormous universe.
