Arcane Tricksters are rogues with a clever touch of magic, using illusions and enchantments to keep their opponents on the back foot.
Arcane Trickster is a Subclass of Rogue. These Rogues are capable of spellcasting (from the Wizard Spell List) and use their spells to attack enemies or support allies in combat. Arcane Tricksters use Intelligence as their spellcasting modifier.
