In origins I love playing my rogue as a dual-wielding tank that would run into the thick of things and slaughter everyone. As for inquisition, I am wondering if a DW rogue tempest, seeing how it is the closest specialization as a "tank", viable. Therein lies my question. Can I play a rogue as a tank? For starters, I do not want to use stealth. In fact, it is not even going to be one of the abilities in my 8 slots. I am looking at silverite as a source of guard, but beyond that, I don't see how I can replicate a DW rogue "tank". Therefore, a DW rogue that doesn't use stealth, specializes in tempest, obtain guard through silverite, and milk the DW tree have the potential to be warrior-like as it was in origins???? --Phanman (talk) 06:59, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, you can. You will want to have masterwork items that grant guard at all times. I do this with my rogue. You will never be able to have as much armor as heavy armor though and since you cannot put into constitution like you could in Origins you will never have as much health as a warrior. You should be fine playing this way as long as you also have a good guard generating/taunting warrior in your party, ie. Cassandra. --Elshiro (talk) 12:32, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

Also, if you use Silverite (I believe) as your main metal you can craft a heavy armor that will remove the class restriction. I found this very useful later in the game, because the Inquisition rogue is very much a glass cannon. MjolnirInTheFridge (talk) 14:07, April 12, 2015 (UTC)

W.T.F...........How have I not noticed this????? --Elshiro (talk) 17:53, April 12, 2015 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it has to be a form of Silverite that is fade-touched, and placed in the Masterwork slot to remove class restrictions. I could be wrong though. User:JoKr
Regular silverite in the main slot is all that's required. Marty Silverblade (talk) 22:03, April 12, 2015 (UTC)
