Diablo 4 Rogue Beginner

Welcome to my Diablo 4 Rogue Beginner Build, designed for World Tier 1 and World Tier 2 difficulties! The goal of this Beginner Build is to help you level up and prepare yourself for the higher World Tier difficulties! The Rogue is the Class of Stealth and Imbuements, that can play as melee or ranged with success. This Beginner Build is focusing on ranged damage to help you deal with stronger enemies from a distance. It also offers options to Crowd Control and destroy fast groups of enemies.

You can use this Beginner Build as it is to complete the campaign and level up while learning all the new interesting mechanics of Diablo 4. Alternatively you can use it as a template and adjust it to your needs and preferred play style as you level up. For more Rogue Builds, you can take a look at my Diablo 4 Rogue Builds page.

Specialization is the special mechanic of Rogue in Diablo 4! When you reach level 15 you can unlock specialization by completing the “True Potential” Quest. As you level up you can unlock three different specializations, with each one offering different benefits to your Build. For this Beginner Build our specialization of choice is “Combo Points“. Combo Points boost the efficiency of our Core skills, so in this case they boost the damage of Barrage!

Rogue Beginner Build Aspects in Diablo 4

All following Aspects are easy to get from Dungeons or by progressing the Campaign! You can farm the Dungeons to unlock them and turn your gear into Legendary quality. This will strengthen your Beginner Build and help you deal with stronger enemies. You can replace them with better Aspects that you find from loot. Keep in mind that you can always use the Aspects you farm from Dungeons(Codex of Power Aspects) but only use once Aspects you get from loot. So it is wise to keep Aspects you get from loot(and extract via the Occultist) for your better gear later in the game.
