But rogues are less adept at protecting teammates. Additionally, in order to play the flank game, Rogues generally need to put themselves in a more vulnerable position than a fighter does. So, sure, we’re better at getting weapon defenses, but we also need ‘em more.I would argue with evade being upgraded to a parry, and having less prereq cost then parry or dodge. Rogues are much stronger against Physical attacks then fighters.
And with the adding of mettle, and spell parry being still a thing tied to parries. That fighters are much better at blocking magical attacks then Scholars. Scholars might have stacked spell defenses but they are much more specific. Personally, I think scholars are just meet to either fighter or rogue at this point.
