Patch Notes: 1.03

So, despite the silly title I am looking for some genuine help with general Rogue gameplay and how to make it "go." The biggest question I have is about Backstab and the usefulness of it. From what I've seen if you engage a fight with your main party, even from Scouting, your Rogue will destealth as well, even if she is broken off from the rest of the group. Of course you don't want to open with your Rogue because then she will just eat every engagement and pop like a balloon, and it's not like you have infinite Shadowing casts. Is Backstab just something you can only use out of Shadowing because of how Scouting/Stealth works or am I doing something wrong? Second, does Sneak Attack make DW/fast weapons usable? I know that DW is fine enough, but that fast weapons tend to suffer because they simply can't overcome DRs because of their low damage. Does Sneak Attack help overcome that, or should Rogues stick to Sabres or Swords for the higher base damage?
