Skill Name Required Level Effect First Level Stat
Tiger Strike
  • Tiger Strike Required Level: 1
  • Tiger Strike Prerequisites: None
  • Charge-Up Skill Consecutive hits add damage bonuses to finishing moves. Must use a dragon finishing move or normal attack to release charges.

    Cast Delay: None

    This skill is good for single targets. Each of the successive charges magnifies the damage potential, so that with 3 charges going the damage, when released, can become quite impressive. It shines especially in normal and nightmare when physical damage is not reduced, however with a high damage weapon (or weapons) it can also be formidable in hell. It is one of the charge up skills that does NOT require claws, which has inspired some Tiger Strike builds to use high damage two handed weapons. Using one or more claws, however, it will get the attack rating and damage bonuses from claw mastery if skilled.

  • Dragon Talon Prerequisites: None
  • Finishing Move Kick your enemies out of your way. Addas charged-up bonuses to the kick

    Fists of Fire
  • Fists of Fire Required Level: 6
  • Fists of Fire Prerequisites: None
  • Charge-Up Skill Consecutive hits add fire to finishing moves. Can only be used with claw-class weapons. Mus use a dragon finishing move or normal attack to release charges.

    Cast Delay: None

    Releasing one charge of Fist of Fire results in a small fire damage explosion effect 1m or less in diameter. Releasing two charges of Fist of Fire results in a short lived (half a second or less) aoe group of explosions about 5m in diameter. Releasing three charges of Fist of Fire results in a (5m diameter) aoe of 9 patches of fire that remain on the ground for approximately 3 seconds. (The amount of damage per second listed in the skill description for the third charge is only that of 2 of the 9 patches of fire.)

    Cobra Strike
  • Cobra Strike Required Level: 12
  • Cobra Strike Prerequisites: Tiger Strike
  • Charge-Up Skill Consecutive hits add life and Mana stealing to finishing moves. Must use a dragon finishing move or normal attack to release charges.

    Cast Delay: None

    Cobra Strike is a charge up that allows the assassin to lifesteal with the one charge, lifesteal and manasteal with two charges, and lifesteal and manasteal moreso with three charges. As such, if an assassin has a good physical damage and attack rating, Cobra Strike can sustain life and mana fairly dependably. However, since lifesteal and manasteal are reduced by 1/2 in nightmare and 2/3 in hellmode, and since monster damage resistances go up in hell (and in nm as well for some cases), the result is that Cobra Strike works best in normal.

    Lvl 1
    Bonus Attack 15%
    Charge 1: Life Stealing 40%
    Charge 2: Life and Mana Stealing 40%
    Charge 3: Life and Mana Stealing 80%
    Claws of Thunder
  • Claws of Thunder Required Level: 18
  • Claws of Thunder Prerequisites: Fists of Fire
  • Charge-Up Skill Consecutive hits add lightning damage to finishing moves. Can only be used with claw-class weapons. Must use a dragon finishing move or normal attack to release charges.

    Cast Delay: None

    Lightning is perhaps the most powerful element in Hell mode both because of its high damage and because most lightning resistance can be removed with runeword infinity equipped on a merc. This being the case, Claws of Thunder can be an amazing skill at high skill level, synergized, and using infinity.

  • Blades of Ice Prerequisites: Fists of Fire , Claws of Thunder
  • Charge-Up Skill Consecutive hits add Cold damage to finishing moves. Can only be used with claw-class weapons. Must use a dragon finishing move or normal attack to release charges.

    Cast Delay: None

    Releasing one charge of Blades of Ice results in a small cold damage effect 1m or less in diameter that will damage only the mob it was released on. Releasing two charges of Blades of Ice results in a short lived (half a second or less) aoe; the aoe consists of a group of 7-9 ice damage patches about 7m in diameter total. Mobs in the aoe(that are not immune to cold) will take damage and become chilled (appear blue and attack and move more slowly). Releasing three charges results in the same aoe effect, but the mob that the charges were released on will become frozen in place; the duration depends on the skill level. Special mobs can't be frozen.

    Dragon Flight
  • Dragon Flight Required Level: 24
  • Dragon Flight Prerequisites: Dragon Talon , Dragon Claw , Dragon Tail
  • Finishing Move Teleport to your enemies and destroy them with a kick. Adds Charged-up bonuses to the kick.

    Cast Delay: 1 Second

    Dragon flight allows you to teleport to mobs that are in your line of site. You can't telport through walls, however you can teleport across rivers or over some other physical boundaries (stairs or other levels of a structure) as long as there is a mob there that you have site of. The animation is slow (23 frames) and it is easily interupted.

  • Phoenix Strike Prerequisites: Tiger Strike , Fists of Fire , Cobra Strike , Claws of Thunder , Blades of Ice
  • Charged-Up Skill Add elemental noveas to finishing moves. Must use a dragon finishing move or normal attack to release charges.

    Cast Delay: None

    Phoenix Strike launches the active charge, not all three charges at once. So if you have it built up to Charge 2, Chaos Lightning will be released.

    Claw Mastery
  • Claw Mastery Required Level: 1
  • Claw Mastery Prerequisites: None
  • Passive Effect: Improves your skill with claw-class Weapons.

    Cast Delay: None

    Claw Mastery functions like the barbarians weapon masteries by providing a passive bonus to all attacks made by the Assassin if she wields a claw weapon. The skill is great to have in that case, though whether or not to spend 20 points into it is another matter. Possibly there are other skills worth more investing in.

    Psychic Hammer
  • Psychic Hammer Required Level: 1
  • Psychic Hammer Prerequisites: None
  • Use the power of your mind to create a psychic blast to crush and knock back your enemies.

    Cast Delay: None

    Psychic Hammer is close to useless. It does close to no damage, scales badly and has no synergies. It doesn't even give any synergistic effects to any other skills either. There is no way this skill will ever be useful past normal, and even before then it isn't of much use. In the early acts when it can provide decent damage, monsters are often relatively easy to kill simply by just hitting them, and there are other skills here that provide better damage and are better investments for higher levels there as well.

    Weapon Block
  • Weapon Block Required Level: 12
  • Weapon Block Prerequisites: Claw Mastery
  • Passive Effect: Chance to block when you are using dual Claw-Class Weapons.

    Cast Delay: None

    Weapon Block allows Assassins to use two Katar (or Claw Weapons) while still having Blocking. Assassins that use two Katars will want to invest heavily in this skill. Even a 1% Increase in Blocking will provide a great amount of protection.
