THE ASSASSINS GUIDE

The best duelists of all types. What they do best is seeking and killing other heroes. Very good attacks with lots of possibilities for offense, but challenged on defense. Unlike all other types, Assassins don't hold their blocks, so they need to be timed. Their health pool is the smallest of all hero types.
Swift and lethal. They are quicker than the other heroes and their attacks deal high damage. In Dominion, Assassins score the most Renown points by:
  • Killing enemy heroes.
  • Contesting zones.
  • Killstreaks.
Since Assassins are very efficient in dueling, they are very good picks for Duel or Brawl.
  • They can also be efficient in team-based modes when played correctly.
  • They're fragile and don't hold their block, so outnumbered fights are very challenging with these heroes.
  • In Dominion, they're at their best when they focus on confronting single heroes on the battlefield and capturing zones.
  • In Skirmish and Elimination, their ability to kill other heroes quickly can be very useful, allowing them to first deal with a direct opponent and still be able to help a teammate deal with another.
  • Exclusive counterattack move: the Deflect, performed by dodging in the direction of the attack.
These four feats are common to all Assassin heroes and have the potential to make them even more deadly:
  • Bounty Hunter (Level 1, passive). Regain health and stamina when killing other players.
  • Revenge Attacks (Level 2, passive). Attacks fill the revenge meter.
  • Sharpen Blade (Level 3, active). Attacks have bleed properties for a limited duration.
  • Fear Itself (Level 4, active). Triggers an AOE that debuffs enemies (health, stamina, and speed) and follows you around.
