Before Combat The rogue relishes combat, but often prefers to hide the full extent of his abilities until he's completely surrounded, the better to take his enemies by surprise and make use of Whirlwind Attack.

During Combat The rogue charges into combat, trying to get in the middle of as many enemies as possible before using Whirlwind Attack, laughing and singing prayers as he lays waste to his enemies.
