    I wanna know if anyones made a decent build with the new assassin tree, I'm working on one but don't know the potential quite yet. Would love to see damage feedback from those who have a somewhat successful Assassin build with 1h-Dag.
    I'm making mine a Glass Cannon, but I look forward to seeing the different variants.

    How about feed back from a not successful build?
    I tried to use proto clarity rose and dagger assassin. It sucks because the skill power is two darn low.
    Also you have to set up a bunch of things before you can back stab with decent damage. At the same time, a DW dumb SC spammer has already out DMG that by two folds.

    Arcane strike is a disappointment because you can't generate mp fast enough.

    I tested it on both high def (nm, ulti) and low def bosses. While it's fun to have something new for a chance, it's still suck comparing to the other classes. The survival is not too bad, but it's not better than other sword classes.

    Im gonna be using Rampage for ampr (when using Arcane ampr buff itll be fine)
    My main dps is going to be Arcane but I have Buster for HP and Back stab for an opener. Assassins are glass cannons (though not entirely with toram standards), fast damage but not too high (although decent.) Im not looking for a build to dominate, just to have fun and do solo runs or with friends. If you notice the cast times on Assassin skills, they are quick. Nearly Instant, I plan on working with that.
    I also dont think Proto Clarity is any useful on the build aside from high def bosses, so imo go with crit rate or damage for stable damage.

    With staff. Tried. Got like 500k Backstab with Backstep buff, almost half without it. But still fast, alright. The thing is the stability.

    Arcane Strike is bogus (2k MP 800k dmg). Because of that, I only use it with half my MP (halved by Impact)

    Deleted.

    I am guessing that 1H Assassin will work better somehow. Better stability and such. Just don't overdo the Arcane Strike. It seems good but it isn't really that good.

    Well except if you can reach 2x Meteor damage with 1100-1200 MP

    If you get stuck, there's a better combo

    Ex: when theres an aoe attack

    Backstep > warcry > impact > gatling knife > finale (as combo ender)

    Just use asassin stab when you get the opportunity to recreate the "ceasar salad"

    I tried this build with -aggro and ampr in mind(coz i use pets lol) gameplay is fun, but with only npc gears in hand the damage is a bit on the meh side of course. With kazuma's sword ava add(kono suba colab limited ava gear) i look like a proper assasin(even with subpar damage since i only do solo run anyway so no complaints)

    I fiddled with an ohs/dagger assassin build, the best combo for it I found was ; (combo 1) astute>sonic strike(cons) then (combo 2) sonic strike {immediately turns to super sonic) sneak atk(save)>back step(swift)>ass stab(smite)>astute(swift).

    Super sonic strike stays triggered for a few seconds so fast spam combo 2 after first use of combo 1. When mp runs out refill with berserk/ramp/trigger slash combo and repeat.

    foresight definitely adds extra damage, to be completely honest I can’t remember if it was 10% or 20% boost (pretty sure it was 10% then an extra 10% from using backstep prior)

    10% (Foresight) + 10%(Back Step), 20% total from both. Last time I checked anyway, dunno if it has been changed.
    I haven't been around recently because I've been finishing schooling, so I will definitely be doing a rebuild since I came into some new gear from an old friend. As well as the combo differences that are being used by everyone here. I still want to find a way to officially use Arcane Strike as a DPS, or maybe a finisher?
