Burst PvP Assassin Guide
Purple: Important Information
Red: Warnings, special information
Before Starting My Guide, Thanks to Eagle
For Coming Up With a Great Format For Guides,
I Was Going to Come Up With One Myself This Weekend
But i Saw His and Realized How Well Put and Beautiful It was
About The Author: Hello Everyone, I'm Kuiba( Q-E-Ba) from Elgore Server and the Guild Cyanide.
My goal is to make the perfect PvP assassin that can lay down as much burst as possible.
On occasion I do Mall, but i will provide some profit-farming areas that you can tryout as well to get you some funds to start a strong assassin. On with the guide now.
Talent Tree and Skill Set Up
Strength:This stat is your bread-winner. Pumping as much attack as possible
will help you do a clean burst with your combo of Ice Bomb, Stealth, Chase, Shadow Strike, Ripper.
Dexterity:This is the only near useless stat on the assassin, honestly after my guild mate
used a buff on me to add 10% attack speed i realized that it really doesn't give more
than .1 sec faster hits and it does not effect the burst of this build at all.
Stamina:This stat is the most helpful and underrated stat on the sin right now.
Before level 60 a lot of people either go huge Hp builds, or low ones. This build
is to offer you just enough Hp to Tank and have enough Energy to keep fighting
back to back opponents throughout a long fight. For that reason you want a good
amount of points in this even on a burst assassin.
Luck: Personally my favorite stat, honesty your aim should be to get 85%
Critical Hit Chance through buffs, luck and armors. This will near guarantee all
of your assassins hits will do Critical Damage. This combos well with the Talent Vendetta.
Along with the other Talents Scent of Blood and Cold Blood You can maximize your damage with Ripper.
Thievish Tricks: I hate this tree, its so lame and i swear some of the talents do not work, if it weren't for Ice Bomb, I'd say put nothing in it. However Ice Bomb being changed from
2 second Freeze to 5+ second Freeze with Deep Freeze is insane. (Mini Freeze Explanation, Enemies
until attacked, Dot's still will deal damage through freeze, no items can be used). Stronger Charge is
Very useful, on occasion you will jump into a crowd after throwing Ice Bomb and doing your Combo on someone to instantly throw Toxic Cloud and Sabotage down to do massive AOE Damage.
is not very helpful with this build because you rarely stealth bomb and neither is Insatiable Thirst because Gold Lust costs Cunning. Sly Boots Is really great extra Dodge if you can Proc it as much as possible and my friends feel Sucker Punches is broken and doesn't work but you have to get it for Ice Bomb.
This is a fun tree, but doesn't see much use until late game around level 48.
The only skill you get from this early on is Vendetta which gives you 20% extra critical damage when
Scent of Blood and Intolerable Pain make this a great tree though. Scent of Blood helps Maximize
the damage you do with your Ripper as it knocks enemies lower than 30% hp while
Intolerable Pain holds them in place, as long as you hit Criticals, even if you are not using Ripper and helps
maximize damage from Cold Blood from the Perfidy Tree.
Poison: If i had more skill points, they would all go in this tree. Poison Blades, is by far of the best Talents the assassin has. It is a free DOT, makes it so you do not need to buy a poison card,and you can proc Detoxify with it. Poison Eating is of the best skills in this tree, it can add up to 1000 extra heal to your Detoxify when you get this talent. Finally Penetrating Strikes is your last big
Maximizes the damage for your Killer Strike combo because Killer Strike ignores 20% defense, it's
not a good
PvE skill, so you are better off waiting until level 56 to get this one.
Perdify: By far the best tree, This tree makes you the Dodge Sin that everyone wants to be.
I can't tell you how many times Escape has saved me in PvE and PvP, free 3 dashes with no cool
down at all if your hp gets low.
This is beyond broken, I've even saved the 3 dashes and used them to catch up to people in PK zones.
Survival Instinct is the most broken Talent in the game i think. Its a full reset to all of your skills on
if your hp goes under 25%, best thing is you can throw more Toxic Clouds, Ice Bombs, Ripper twice in a row in duel
Save yourself last second with Detoxify, anything can happen(Fair warning though, this skill has an
unmarked 2 minute
cool down that you need to time for yourself). Want to be a rogue killer, get Shadow Eye. having
Shadow Eye means
nothing will be able to sneak up on you, and you will be able to find that other assassin who just used
stealth next to you
to run away, Bye Bye. Trickster is my favorite skill in this tree, at max stacks it gives you 40 dodge.
Dodge is quite
bad right now in general, but late game at level 60 when you can add an extra 100+ Flee during a fight,
be missing a lot of their hits on you. Parry is also great in the fact that you get a lot of dodge (at the
taking quite a bit of damage though, over 7%) Cold Blood is a great talent that combos with
and Scent of blood, if you fight someone and knock them under 30% hp, they will take 20% extra
you if they are stunned or rooted. Finally, Shadow Dungeon. I've yet to really see or understand this
It is strictly pvp so its not really worth it getting until level 60. All i know is, it stealths you and an
enemy as a 3rd stealth and we all love extra stealths.

- I was born in the darkest area of Aura, My mother died during my birth and my father felt i was responsible so he left me to my uncle and traveled away. My uncle told me great stories of how of how our family was of a great lineage of spies for the royal family. However it all changed when my father's older brother had stolen a precious Crown Jewel from them. 13 years have gone by since my uncle had been killed protecting a trading caravan heading towards Mistgan, I never got to see him the day he left and i never got to see him return either. I'm 20 now and after learning enough to get by from friends and what my uncle taught me i've finally decided to join in the fight to save Aura from the monsters that ravage it. I hope to restore my families lost honor and find my father one day through my travels. My journey begins in the forest of shadows where i moved to when i was growing up. The town chief had educated me in the ways of combat throughout these last years and i finally feel ready to take on this world. My journey begins now as i take these steps into this vast world of warriors fighting to save the people of Aura.
