How do I become an Rogue!
You cannot choose Rogue as a starting class, so you have to beat your level 10 class quest on any other class before choosing to become a Rogue. If you’re a new player and plan on going Ninja straight up, choose Pugilist as your starting class and may as well level it to 15.

The Rogue guild is located in Limsa Lominsa.

What’s the best Rogue race?
Elezen Wildwoods, [more info: Racial Stats guide], Since they have the highest DEX (23). The next best races in order:
Mi’Qote: Seeker of the Sun (22)
Lalafell Plainsfolk (22)
Hyur: Highlander (21)
Roegadyn: Sea Wolf (18)
