Assassin

Assassins, a stealthy sort, prefer to take things at their own pace. With the power of controlling the battlefield like no other, they lure uncunning enemies into deadly traps before they know what hit them.

The Assassin is a special kind of martial artist—one that uses a sharp Dagger to poison enemies and enter Stealth to slay their opponents. Assassin's mastery in being quick, nimble, and precise gives them an undeniable advantage over other martial artists to control the battlefield, especially when raising their allies' critical chances and defending them with a well-placed decoy.

Mastering the Assassin often requires an unending diligence, making the class difficult for many. However, a well-seasoned Assassin with prowess of the Dagger, can swiftly become as fast and dark as the night to exceed the limit.

Available Races: Jin, Lyn
