Assassin Stats Builds Advice

There are lots of Thieves and Assassin Stat Builds. But I’ll start with the easy to level-up build. Most hitting characters that level up easy are Agi type builds since they don’t cost a lot of white potions. Your Agi gives you makes you capable of evading attacks. For Assassin Skill Builds, please refer to this post.

I’ll show you my first build…

Weapon Builds

1. Double Attack Katar Assassin

PvP: PvM: WoE: Refer to Skill Builds instead.
Recommended for: People who enjoy hitting fast.
“I’m slow, speed is my insecurity, that’s why I love this build.”

This is one of my favorite builds so far. It attacks so fast that even if I only have 60 total agi, it looks like I have 80 already. But it doesn’t have the highest DPS in game. My suggested stat build for this character would be a balance of Str Dex and Agi. Preferrably, I level up DEX first in early game. Since it helps me hit mobs, increases damage mortality.

One mistake of most players is that they usually upgrade STR first, failing to hit some monsters and having only a few options of mobs to grind on. You can do that if you already have a leveling plan with low flee rate mobs. So my plan stats are 80 str, 80 agi, 80 dex. Maybe the remaining stats are for VIT. But, that’s just me.

Double Attack passive skill doesn’t work for a Katar User Assassin but if you have a Snake Head Hat or SideWinder Card it gives your katar, your current level of Double Attack. Mine is Level 10, so instead of level 5 snake head hat skill, it becomes level 10.

I’m not going to max out flee unless I already have mummy card. So if you still have not prepared the full equipment for you assassin, I highly suggest you do this.

Suggested Stats: Str: 40-70; Agi: 80-99; Dex: 40; Vit: 0-70;
My Plan Stats: Str: 50; Agi: 90; Vit: 70; Dex: 50;
Pros: Very Fast ASPD, Cheapest Build, A Lot Better Than Just Katar, Effective Against Low Def Enemies, Can Grimtooth
Cons: Mediocre DPS, Usually kills Wizards ONLY In PVP
Required Equipment: Sidewinder Card/Snake Hat, Katar.

— I have also made a 99 Agi 99 Vit DA Sin for WoE

2. Critical Hit Katar Assassin

PvP: PvM: WoE: Refer to Skill Builds instead.
Recommended for: People who love seeing chocolate bars…Also if you love cost-efficiency.
“CRACK! CRACK! CRACK!… Sounds so satisfying.”

At 120 Total Str, with Sparkling Candy, every Critical hit could deal 1k+ Damage

Crit-Build Assassins are one of the most popular builds in-game but then a lot of them changed job or left the game the moment they knew the Emperium only takes 1 damage. All you need actually to be called a “Crit-Build Assassin” is to have at least 30 luk, depending on your equipment: Crit Rate and Crit Damage Cards like Cruiser Cards Equipped on a Jur, 2 Kobold Cards. Pantie set is recommended to almost everyone agi type. (Rosary[1] or Brooch[1] recommended accessory)

NATURAL CRITS are now more EFFECTIVE because Critical Damage is now 1.4x total damage and not just weapon damage. So it COUNTS STR!!! The downside is it doesn’t ignore armor anymore. I crossed out Solider Skeleton Cards because they are already Overpriced and doesn’t deal much damage. Here, take a look how much damage I had when I equipped Solider Skeleton Cards Instead.

From 1000+ Damage down to 677… Still want SS cards eh?

Suggested Stats: Str: 60-90; Agi: 70+; Dex: 0-30;  Luk: 35-70;
My Plan Stats: Str 80;  Agi: 83; Dex: 30; Luk: 64;
Pros: Highest Damage Output, +40% more damage, Fast, Crits Doesn’t Miss, No SP-COST High DPS for MVP
Cons: Expensive; Not Ideal for WOE since CRIT SIN’s stats are hard to balance compromising VIT most of the times and you need VIT to survive in WOE.
Required Equipment: Jur[3], 2 Kobold Cards, Cruiser Cards, Assaulter Cards

What happened to crit? Why doesn’t it ignore DEF anymore? Here’s why.

3.  Dual Dagger

PvP: PvM: WoE: Refer to Skill Builds instead.
Recommended for: People who want to switch multiple weapons instead of spamming skills. High Complexity.
“Uhuh… a Raydric, well I have the perfect weapon for you /gg”

Note that this Assassin picture is taken from an Assassin Dual Dagger Youtube Guide (Thailand Classic Official RO). Assisted by a Priest and a Blacksmith to maximize its damage. Dual Dagger Assassins have the highest DPS in game but the most expensive (in my experience). Think about it, you have 2 daggers, with a total of UP TO 7 or 8 Card Slots. And you have to fill it up with costly cards. Hurts your pocket so much doesn’t it? But it deals great damage especially on Emperium. The downside is, when you are alone and especially if you still have 50 agi or below. You’ll certainly get bored of your attack speed.

Having dual dagger equipped slows your attack speed by almost half, that’s why most dual dagger builds have at least 70 agi. According to a guide about dual daggers assassins, you could have two paths on doing this: 74 Str with 99 Agi, or 94+ str with 77 agi. But he recommends the one with bigger Str, since this is the main point of playing Dual Dagger, DPS. Btw, make sure the dagger with higher damage is put on the right hand.

DD’s are the most complicated to understand since they have too many factors to consider. Please wait as I do some experiments to find out what is the best for a DD Assassin.

Suggested Stats: Str: 40-94; Agi: 50-99; Dex: 40-70; Vit: 20-50;
My Stats: Str: 50; Agi: 99; Dex: 60; Vit: 49;
Pros: Highest DPS, Best for MVP (Farming)
Cons: Very Expensive, Boring at Start
Required Equipment: Zipper Bear Cards, Hydra Cards, Skeleton Worker Cards, Gladius, Assassin’s Dagger, Main Gauche

Sub Builds

Assassins are complicated species. You’ve got weapon builds, and here you also have sub-builds. :/ Just pick a weapon build then choose below which Sub-Build you actually like. You can combine them also.

1. Venom Splasher

PvP: 5/5; PvM: 4/5; WoE: 3/5;
Play Style: “Cloak, Splash, Backslide, wait for itttt!…Dary! Nvm, you didn’t get the joke.”

Awwww… I love how the Venom Splasher dealt 10k Exact Damage, so satisfying…

Venom Splasher is the new Killer Skill for Assassins. Many were discouraged of Assassins due to the fact that they don’t have Enchant Deadly Poison yet and Soul Destroyer is not yet available. Good news, ROEXE boosted Venom Splasher! No More 3/4 HP Requirement.

2. Sonic Blow

PvP: 4/5; PvM: 1/5; WoE: 1/5;
Play Style: “Wait for Splasher to explode and ASSASINATE!” (Try to spam twice)

Ninja VS Assassin

Sonic Blow is still a good thing. But only in combination with Venom Splasher. Otherwise, you can only kill No-VIT noobs.

3. Grimtooth

PvP: 2/5; PvM: 4/5; WoE: 5/5;
Play Style: “Lure, lure, lure, hide, DIE!!!”

I don’t actually understand where those spikes come from.

Best for leveling… and WoE. Equip Status Effect Arrows especially Cursed Arrow. Eh… no more comments.

If you don’t understand Sub-builds, and you are wondering why only Assassins have such builds, check Assassin’s Skill Builds to understand more.

If you have other questions, clarifications, suggestions and violent reactions, feel free to comment below. Ciao!

SIDE NOTE: These are just guides and not the perfect build, sometimes you have to experiment it yourself. And your stats should PERFECTLY fit with your equipment if you want a perfect build.
