Assassin - Characteristics & Playstyle

Attacker Adept At Closing The Distance

Assassin

The Assassin is an agile and mobile attacker that can send himself flying towards enemies. He is capable of freely manipulating the space between opponents and confusing them, all while dealing great damage!

Invulnerability Skills Great For PvP

Assassin

Certain abilities will make the Assassin unstoppable/invulnerable while he casts them! This means that you can use these to dodge important enemy abilities. Using Into the Veil will also let you stealth and get the jump on unsuspecting players!

Buff Yourself With Lethal Preparation

The passive skill Lethal Preparation clouds your weapon in a black fog, boosting your own offensive stats for 15 seconds. Smart use of this can let you deal massive burst damage on a foe!

Gather Enemies Together

Assassin

The Assassin's skill Shadow Escape sucks enemies into an area and deals damage to them. This is an excellent way to group up enemies and hit them with your other powerful AoE abilities. This is also excellent when playing in a team with other people.

Assassin - Recommended Skills & Build

Recommended Skills For PvE

Skill
Instant Assassination
Lethal Preparation
Shadow Escape
Frontal Assault
Track Prey
Confirm Kill
Cutthroat
Sneak Attack

Buff yourself with Lethal Preparation, pull lots of enemies and group them up using Shadow Escape. You can also use Track Prey and Sneak Attack to bring in other nearby enemies into the fight. Instant Assasination is also recommended here, as its cooldown is relatively short.

Recommended Skills For PvP

Skill
Throw Double Blade
Shadow Escape
Into the Veil
Smoke Assault
Tracking Prey
Nightmarish Assault
Brute Force
Sneak Attack
Assassin

Throw Double Blade decreases movement speed and is very useful in PvP Combat! Into the Veil will also let you stealth and get the jump on your enemy, so it's practically a must. Generally aim for a hit-and-run strategy when playing the Assassin in PvP! Get in quick, hit hard, and get out!

Assassin - Recommended Soul Linkers

Recommended Soul Linkers

ATK TypeRecommended for most content.
SUPP TypeChoose according to the content you're doing
DEF TypeChoose according to the content you're doing

Focus On Attack!

The Assassin works best when buffing up its Critical stat, given that it attacks so fast. Pick a Soul Linker that gives you a crit bonus for the best effects.

Assassin - Recommended Passive Skills

Recommended Passives To Level Up

PriorityPassive
★★★★★Physical Attack Increase
★★★★Physical Crit. Damage Increase
★★★★Physical EVA Increase
★★・・・HP Increase
・・・・Physical DEF Increase

Prioritize DPS

It's generally not worth it to prioritize building up defensive stats on an Assassin. Enhance your damage-dealing passives first to maximize your damage output! If you want some defenses, focus on evasion instead.
