The new MMORPG Lost Ark introduces the Assassin class as part of its class preview videos. It comes either with three swords or even as half a demon. We introduce you to the classes.
What is the assassin? With the Assassin you don’t expect what you are used to from games like Assassin’s Creed. You do not necessarily sneak, nor do you assassinate in hiding. What you can expect, however, is a fast-paced and action-packed gameplay. The assassin is quick and armed to the teeth. Your job is to deal damage and then get out of here as quickly as possible. The fast fighter cannot take a lot.
Although the assassin, like the magician, has some long-range combat abilities, her main area of application is hand-to-hand combat. So if you want to plunge into battle as an assassin in the upcoming beta for the game, you’ve come to the right place.
Death Blade and Shadowhunters – The 2 subclasses of the Assassin and their skills
How does the class system work? In Lost Ark you choose a basic class, in this case the Assassin. If you have played them up to level 10, you can decide on a subclass. By the way, if you already have a character at level 10, you can skip this process with the next characters and select your subclass directly.
What can Death blade do? Armed with two small swords and one large sword, the death blade does a good job in hand-to-hand combat. She uses a mixture of lighter, quick attacks with the small swords and slow, violent blows with the great sword. She can recharge her chaos energy and then punch forward through several opponents. The skill Death Sentence lifts them into the air and then lets them crash onto the ground with enormous force, causing enormous damage to the area.
Moonlight Sonic ability briefly disappears Death Blade to send a thunderstorm of blows down on the enemies. Anyone who likes the mixture of fast-paced action and charged heavy blows has definitely come to the right place with the Death Blade.
What can Shadowhunter do? The second subclass of the assassin is the shadow hunter. She wields two demonic blades and relies on a lot of force in combat. Compared to the death blade, it is the slower of the two assassins, but in general class comparison it is still rather fast. With her identity ability, she can turn into a demon that can quickly cause a lot of damage. Their normal attacks are also characterized by dark and demonic power.
With Demon Vision skill, she shoots a huge beam of demonic power forward, which injures all opponents in its path. With the skill Demonic Clone, she summons a large demon, which distributes a few heavy blows for her and causes area damage. But even her blades are not neglected, for example when she throws them into the enemy while turning with Grind Chain skill or when turning through the hordes of enemies with Sharpened Cut.
