PostSubject: The Assassin Ultimate Information.   Wed Aug 11, 2010 11:40 am

Assassin


The Order of Mage Slayers was formed after the Vizjerei survived the tragedy brought on by Bartuc and Horazon. Their purpose was to watch for rogue magi that may become corrupted by the forces of Evil. To be effective at this task they were trained in abilities that were not conducive to Demonic corruption. Living as rumour and myth to the general population, even other magi knew very little about this mysterious order. Their reputation was shrouded in mystery and the simple fear of their retribution almost ensured steadfast vigilance against corruption amongst those who knew they were real.

Assassins do not employ the magical arts directly; rather, they use enchanted items that mimic elemental powers and can be used autonomously. To further avoid potential corruption, they focus on the natural abilities of the mortal body - powers of the mind and unarmed combat.

Claw-Class Weapons

The Diablo II Expansion introduced a new class of weapons that is expressly for the Assassin. These are claw-like weapons that she wears on her hands, either single- or dual-wielding. They can only be worn by the Assassin, and are the only way that an Assassin can dual wield. Assassins are not very skilled with other weapon types, so it's rare to see one using anything but Claws.
Martial Arts

View the Assassin Martial Arts skill tree. As you'd expect from the title of this tree, these will allow her to perform various styles of combat kicks, as well as power-ups to augment her finishing moves.

This tree is divided into 2 areas. There are six Charge Up skills and four Finishing Moves, although you can use your regular plain attack.

A Charge Up skill can be charged up to three times. Each charge will either increase the bonus damage delivered when/if the charge up is delivered. You must hit your target to register a charge. Charges are displayed visually by small, orbiting lights of appropriate colors. Charges persist for several seconds, and can be refreshed indefinitely. They will expire after

Once charged its bonuses can be released by using a Finishing Move {or Attack}. The Finishing Move will also apply a bonus of its own.

An example combination of Charge Up and Finishing Move:
Left Skill - Fists of Fire
Charge Up Right Skill - Dragon Claw
Finishing Move
Level One
Charge 1: Fire Damage: 6-10
Charge 2: Fire Damage Radius: 2 y
Charge 3: Burning Duration: 2.5 sec
Attack: +50%
Mana Cost: 2 Level One
Damage: +50%
Attack: +50%
Mana Cost: 2

Taking the example above... attack with the left mouse button {Fist of Fire} once and your finishing move will apply 6-10 fire damage, charge it a second time and your finishing move will apply 6-10 fire damage over a 2 yard radius, charge it a third and final time and your finishing move will apply 6-10 fire damage, over a 2 yard radius and will burn for 2.5 seconds.

Finishing moves can be used on their own but of course they're not going to be as powerful without the Charge Ups.

Three of the four finishing moves use the feet, Dragon Claw uses the claws and then only when they are dual wielded. No claw plus shield set ups can be used if you're wanting your Assassin to use Dragon Claw. Also, charge ups are released on the first claw to successfully strike a foe only, not twice, once on the first claw then again on the second claw. The character screen displays it as if the Assassin will release a charge up when the left and right claw strike and that is not the case.

Check the Martial Arts ID Sheet to quickly identify the Martial Art charge ups.

Check Assassin FAQ for weapons that can be used with Martial Arts.
Shadow Disciplines

This skill tree is similar to the Amazon's Passive and Magic Tree, though there are many more combat type skills here, things that actually do damage, rather than just boosting your other attributes.

The left branch of the tree {Burst of Speed, Fade and Venom} should be treated as the Paladin's auras in as much as only one can be active at a time. Casting another will cancel out the first, with the exception being Venom which works with both Burst of Speed and Fade.

It is worth pointing out that there are situations where the more limited Shadow Warrior is sometimes preferable to the Shadow Master. You may wish to have your Shadow use the skills you have active at that moment. The Master will use any of her 26 skills {not including Claw Mastery, Weapon Block & the two Shadow skills}. You may want her to use a certain trap or a certain martial Arts combination. The Master, while pretty intelligent, isn't as clever as you {one would hope} and she has full reign over all skills {regardless if you have a point in it} so there's a chance she'll not use exactly what you'd like her to. Warrior on the other hand is limited to the two skills you have readied and therefore there's a greater chance she will use those. This level of control is offset by the higher life and consistent mana consumption {20} of the Master.

Neither Shadow can cast any Shadow skills and they do not level up should they stay alive long enough. You will not benefit from any aura type skills {Burst of Speed, Fade & Venom} your Shadow casts and vise versa.
Traps

This skill tree lets the Assassin deal with packs before they get the chance to deal with her. A combination of projectile and remote devices to ensnare her foe. Three branches, lighting, fire and blades. All can attack multiple enemies at once, even the early grenade types such as Fire Blast and Shock Web have an area effect, albeit relatively small. Level 12 it gets more inventive, and in some ways easier, as she can set remote sentries to attack whilst she's also attacking with a martial arts skill for example. These sentries will attack up to 5 or 10 times, depending on the sentry, before disappearing.

She has a number of Telekinesis sort of skills {Shadow Disciplines} where she can push foe back {Psychic Hammer} into a trapped area or confuse {Cloak of Shadows} them so they do not move from the area she has placed traps. Up to five Sentries {mixed or of the same type} can be active at one time, casting a sixth will destroy the first one cast. This number does not include Sentries set by her Shadows, they too can place up to five although you have no control over how many they cast, that decision is down to the wonders of AI.

The best thing about traps is once set, she can concentrate on other attacks, melee or otherwise. While she's fighting hand to hand she can have five {never more} traps applying damage at the same time. Five Lightning Sentries firing a total of 10 streams of lightning each - 50 streams of lightning just as back up! Pop up a Shadow Warrior {Shadow Disciplines tree} so she's casting the same traps and you could potentially have 10 traps and 100 streams of lighting. That's quite unlikely though as the Shadow Warrior doesn't seem to go for maximum output with the old traps.

All sentries/grenades/blades can be thrown/set across rivers and over small walls, basically anywhere within the line of sight. Her Sentries are visible to other players, even hostile players. They disappear should she leave the level, whether voluntary or involuntary {death}. However they will not disappear if she stays put on the level after she dies, they will continue firing until they have used all their charges.


History

The Assassins are an ancient order originally founded by the Horadrim to hunt down and eliminate rogue mages within their own ranks. Employing secret disciplines to combat and resist the magical abilities of their elusive quarry, the Assassin's bag of tricks includes traps and other infernal devices, martial arts, and powerful mental abilities. Common people know nothing of the Assassins, but they are widely feared and respected by all who employ the magic arts.

In the third century, two brothers rose to dominance from within the ranks of the Vizjerei clan of mages; their names were Horazon and Bartuc. Both were equally powerful and ambitious, and both were fascinated by the power one could obtain through the practice of Demonic Magics; however, the two differed in their views regarding how best to study demons. While Horazon viewed demons as a great source of power, he felt that in order to use that power best, you must harness a demon and bend him to your will. His brother, on the other hand, grew to sympathize with the demonic powers and felt (with no small influence from the demons) that the demonic forces were best understood by allying with the Hellish authorities so their secrets could be shared freely, and that is exactly what he did. Their diametrically opposed philosophies caused a great schism that split the ranks and tore the Vizjerei clan apart.

When at last their fierce rivalry culminated in inevitable violence, the combatants learned too late that they had both been played as pawns by the demonic host. The ensuing battle was so great it set the very firmament aflame, and when it was complete and the stillness of remorse was all that remained, Bartuc lay dead, Horazon had vanished into self-imposed exile, and the Vizjerei had learned a costly lesson. The small surviving group of sorcerers, the remnants of the once-great Vizjerei clan, resolved forevermore to spurn Demonic Magics and set about renewing their studies in the Elemental Magics. To further ensure that a similar tragedy could never happen again, they formed a secret order whose sole purpose was to police the mage clans, destroying corruption wherever they found it. This was the birth of the Viz-Jaq'taar, the Order of the Mage Slayers-otherwise known as the Assassins.

Knowing that such an order might itself be corrupted if exposed to the power of magic, the Vizjerei deemed it of the utmost importance that these Assassins maintain the purest, most focused minds. They should live in meditation and draw their power from within, not from external forces that could easily mask demonic interference. To this end, the Order would not employ the magic arts directly; rather, they would use ingenious devices and enchanted items to battle those possessing great magical powers. To further their campaign against demonic corruption, they concentrated on honing the natural martial abilities of their bodies, both physical and mental.

Because the Order remains veiled in secrecy, few people, even among the mages, know more than rumors about this mysterious organization. Their reputation has been one shrouded in ambiguity. Legends of their stalwart vigilance, and the widespread fear of their retribution, have kept many mages away from the temptations of corruption, so actual sightings have been rare. However, with the reemergence of the Three, and the subsequent increase in demonic manifestations in the world, the Order has shown a greater public presence of late.
Traits and Abilities

Assassins do not employ the magic arts directly; rather, they use enchanted items that mimic elemental powers, which can function autonomously. To further avoid potential corruption, they also focus on the natural abilities of the mortal body-powers of the mind and unarmed combat. The Assassins have trained extensively in the use of an exotic group of weapons: sets of metal blades and claws that strap onto the wrists. They have expertly incorporated the use of these weapons into their martial arts, and when wielding one in each hand, an Assassin can deliver a devastating double attack. Even the most novice of Assassins is a past master of infiltration, and no lock has been made that they cannot circumvent. Hence, an Assassin needs no key to open locked chests.



Assassin Martial Arts


Intrinsic to the Assassin's arsenal of abilities is her incredible prowess in the mysterious Martial Arts style of the Viz-Jaq'taar. Martial Arts skills come in two forms, Charge-up Skills and Finishing Moves. A Charge-up Skill is an attack that adds a "charge" for each successive hit within a short time frame. While each Charge-up attack deals normal damage, the charges continue to accumulate until triggered or until the time limit runs out. To trigger the accumulated charges, strike a monster with either a normal attack or one of the Finishing Moves. A Finishing Move doesn't just trigger the release of the accumulated charges-it also adds a powerful effect of its own. Furthermore, by building up a succession of different Charge-up Skills, Assassins can generate a potent combination of effects. Assassins are specially trained in the use of exotic Claw-class weaponry, and some of their skills can be used only when armed with these weapons.

Cobra Strike

Required Level: 12
Prerequisites: Tiger Strike
Charge-Up Skill: A properly trained Assassin can focus her mind to draw upon the ambient energies surrounding her. Using this skill, she can drain her adversary of life and spiritual essence.

Notes:

* Unless she becomes surrounded by too many monsters at once, an Assassin with this skill can maintain her health and mana indefinitely without the use of potions or item-based lifesteal/mana drain.
* Provided she can land at least two blows with Cobra Strike, the mana drain is more than sufficient to replenish the 2-6 mana cost to charge, allowing the use of this skill to perpetuate itself.

Dragon Tail

Required Level: 18
Prerequisites: Dragon Talon, Dragon Claw
Finishing Move: The experienced Assassin can deliver a kick so powerful it actually causes an explosion on impact, sending any nearby victims sprawling.
Synergies: None
Notes:

* Dragon Tail's fire damage calculation is based off the actual physical damage receieved by the target from the Assassin's kick. A level 2 Dragon Tail adds 60% of the physical damage delivered from the kick as fire damage. However, if the target resists physical damage by 50%, the target will receive 50% of the physical damage from the Assassin's kick, and based off that physical damage, 60% of that will be fire damage (30%).
* Therefore, if the target is physical immune, the Dragon Tail attack does not directly affect the target.

Phoenix Strike

Required Level: 30
Prerequisites: Tiger Strike, Fists of Fire, Cobra Strike, Claws of Thunder, Blades of Ice
Charge-up Skill: This mighty skill allows the Assassin trained in its arts to prepare an attack that gives off powerful elemental energies.
Synergies:

* Fists of Fire: +10% Fire Damage Per Level
* Fists of Fire: +6% Average Fire Damage Per Second Per Level
* Claws of Thunder: +13% Lightning Damage Per Level
* Blades of Ice: +10% Cold Damage Per Level

Notes:

* Phoenix Strike launches the active charge, not all three charges at once. So if you have it built up to Charge 2, Chain Lightning will be released.
* Phoenix strike is a handy skill if you're fighting around monsters with different Resistances, because you don't need to change between skills.

Assassin Shadow Disciplines


To remain protected from exposure to the potential corruption of magic, Assassins must defeat their sorcerous opponents without actually using spells themselves. To this end, they have mastered the clandestine talents, as well as the arts of obfuscation, and honed their latent psychic abilities to develop the Shadow Disciplines. These skills represent the end result of generations of strict mental conditioning and intensive stealth training.

* Burst of Speed and Fade can not be used at the same time.
* Shadow Warrior and Shadow Master can not be used at the same time.

Assassin Traps


To supplement her array of tools and abilities, the Assassin has access to an ingenious group of devices. These mechanisms, engineered by Viz-Jaq'taari sages, have been perfected over many years of use. They range from simple thrown missiles and bombs to more complex proximity-triggered sentries.

There is a limit of 5 Traps.

Traps are very effective in Normal and later on into Nightmare. Traps become less effective in Hell. due to Monster resistances and Life. Traps can be used at higher difficulty levels for additional help and the Death Sentry's Corpse Explosion ability remains powerful on any level since it scales up with the monster's hit points.

Certain items will allow a player to lower an enemy's resistances and/or heighten elemental damage. These items will not function with most traps as some traps are minions of the character and the damage is not generated directly from the character in question.

Blade Fury

Required Level: 18
Prerequisites: Fire Blast, Blade Sentinel, Wake of Fire
Effect: Using this skill, the Assassin throws several small blades, shredding her enemies with a barrage of metal.
Synergies: None
Notes:

* Blade Fury doesn't use up durability of weapons, and can be used with an ethereal weapon.
* Blade Fury will attack constantly with 6 frames per second. It does not work with Burst of Speed or any other increased (or decreased) attack speed.
* Blade Fury accuracy is based on the Assassin's attack rating. Your chances of hitting a monster with a normal attack determine your chance with Blade Fury.
* Blade Fury does not work with Pierce or exploding arrow effects.
* Blade Fury works with effects on striking, but not on attack. Therefore, Curses and other effects can be triggered very fast.
* Additional skill points only yield negligible damage increase which is not further modified. The 3/4 of your weapon, however, benefit from all damage enhancers, e.g. the Claw Mastery (if the weapon is a claw).
