Stat help

I'm new to the rogue world (level 21).. Was wondering how I should distribute points.. I didn't know hiw much strength was needed so this is what I got.

Strength-10
Dex-55
Foc-25
Vit-40

I now realise reading that I need alot more strength which makes sense.. Just use to mage.. Ha-ha
Also what are skills I should strive for?

Quick-8/10
Rend-4/10
Hide-5/19
Sneak-6/10
Fast reflex-2/10
Poison, rejuv, meditate, bandage 1/10

Make it be clear that i have better things to spend money, and don't want it to go to waste on a few years of game time, so playing without sigils, what would be good?

Should drop hide and max qs and sneaky. For the lower levels strength doesn't matter that much.

Get enough vit to survive. If you don't have regens make sure you have a some energy as well. There is not much to do with a build at such low level.

But you can't use sneak against reds without hide unless they target someone else right?

Yes, tap a target and then use sneaky. Your too will walk to the mob. This way you can use sneaky at the beginning of the fight. This doesnt work on ranger mobs tho

Try get shadowstrike and riposte, shadowstrike is fairly expensive though. Best level build imo is:

Max qs
Max rip
Max ss
Max sneaky/lifesteal/poison weapons

For leveling till tower I liked the following stats: this was around level 130 I think

350 strength
250 dex
10 foc
200-250 vit

When I was low lvl leveling, I would spend stat points each level as follows: 2 dex, 1 str and 2 vit.

This gives you enough vit t stsy alive and good skill hits to go with a good auto. As others have recommended, save up and buy shadowstrike at your earliest convenience. It will make leveling so much easier and faster. Skills to use :
Riposte max
Shadowstrike max
Quick strike max
Life steal max (unless u dual with a Druid)

Keep using sneaky until you get riposte and shadowstrike, then respec out of it. It is essentially useless for leveling, especially at low levels, since you can only use it once at start of fight. And you will be killing so quickly that you will only get to use it once every 3-4 mobs because of the long cooldown.

Hope this helps you out :)

Is strength more important than dex?

No, not if you do not use smeaky attack or riposte, someone very wise once told me the rogue is not a melee class and he was right, we are a skills such called " Burst damage" class. Says : dex is the stats you should invest into, by the way dex also increases defence and attack :P

If you want to die fast and lose time with waiting on your str skills ( they need longer than the rest) Str is your choice.
If you want to lock things fast drop kills like they are hot, and get a max amount of health back with lifesteal, if you do not want to die of auto hits,and if you want to hit almost everytime your dagger strikes foreward, DEX is your choice :P

Enjoy the class Rogue,

Oh and by the way do not do a " Stats Split" with 2 points here 1 there one there ..etc.. Thats ***, and ido not know who invented that but they seem to not be very smart, :P

My way and suggestion, No SPLIT - throw in 5 points on dex str or vit each time you level up,
Enjoy,
