Assassin Skills

Dark Blade

Charge forward and perform a powerful melee attack.


Using the skill will set the Assassin into a dashing mode. This mode lasts for 2 seconds, or until an enemy is killed.

If there is any statue effect, it is used upon activation.

In this mode:

  • The movement speed is greatly increased.
  • The Assassin is immune to all damage, until the skill ends normally, or 1 second after the kill.
  • However he is not immune to Slow tiles even when stepping on them during dashing mode.
  • The first hit will be substituted by a Dark Blade hit.
  • This blade is a long distance melee swing, can deal 8 damage and can destroy enemy bullets (or even reflect them with buff).
  • The Assassin can use it by pressing the attack button, or when he finds an enemy within melee range (in this case the swing will be done automatically).
  • If the Assassin slays an enemy within the skill’s duration, the cooldown will be reset instantly. This progress can be repeated up to 4 times, after that the player will have to wait for the cooldown.
  • This reset does not happen if the kill is caused by Statue of the Elf or Statue of the Thief upon activation.
  • However if the Double Statue buff triggers, kills caused by the second push can cause reset.
  • This reset can happen even if the kill is caused by another weapon.
  • The skill has a cooldown of 11 (9) seconds.

Skill Upgrade

Increase melee attack damage.

  • The blade damage is increased from 8 to 12.
  • Despite saying “melee attack”, it only affects the skill, but not the common melee attack.


  • Create a shadow duplicate of the Assassin.

How to Unlock

  • Use 7,000 gems to unlock this skill.


Makes a clone of Assassin with the currently holding weapon, similar to the effect of Staff of Illusion. The clone’s health equals to the sum of Assassin’s current health and armor.
The clone will disappear after receiving enough damage and will not persist through floors.
Pet buff adds 25 health to the clone.
The clone can benefit from weapon attachments that increase direct damage (like Grindstone), but not those with extra effect (like Energy Hilt.)
If the player tries using this skill while the clone is active, it will reset the clone’s health according to the Assassin’s Health and Armor, and the weapon he is currently using.
This skill has a 9 (7) seconds cooldown.

Skill Upgrade

Increases the maximum number of duplicates created.

  • Up to two maximum clones can be active at any given time. Using the skill while both are active will reset the last summoned clone.
