Daggers imbued with a linked mana-transferring enchant.

    Something I think that might make Rogues more sought after in groups is the ability to perform a ritual with a teammate that transferes the life force of the enemey into the teammate as mana.  

    As the Rogue drains enemies of blood, their life is converted into mana and transfered to the teammate the Rogue performed the ritual with.  This could be an alternative/addition to having an Enchanter or Bard in the group.  

    Perhaps a different ritual can be performed to convert the life force into health, healing the teammate.  This would be good for either helping the tank stay alive, or to offer off-heals to the Cleric/Wizards who pull agro now and then.  


    Obviously the Rogue can only maintain ONE ritual at a time.

    The mechanic you propose sounds nice but in my opinion it wouldn't fit a rogue(even the word -as you chose it- Ritual is magic based. Sounds like a modified lifetap which could relate to necro partially imo)

    Since Rogues will have CC abilities to support the party + traps / perhaps secrets for shortcuts or additional loot, think the remaining role as DPS and interruption sounds enough.
