To start I ask that this topic gets thoughtful and knowledgeable responses not the sins are "op" or "nerf" them. That doesn't help the developers change the class.
The Assassin class is known for its High Critical Hits, High Burst Damage, Low Defense, and Stealth. As of now in Royal Quest Assassins are not fulfilling that job. Other features include DoT skills and immobilizing the enemy. Assassins specialize in quickly bursting down an enemy or even killing. With current changes they are unable to do so.
Stealth ChangesStealth was very important for Assassins. It allowed them to sneak up on an unsuspecting target and quickly naturalize it. Now in Royal Quest the stealth is broken. Every class in the game can see us when we get near. It ruins the element of surprise. Many patches ago combos where made based upon the old stealth system. Even Shadow Strike the Assassins most prized skill was nerfed greatly. The skill is close to useless now it was very strong when used in stealth mode. Each cunning making it stronger and stronger. Assassins still have access to stealth the skill Withdrawal into Shadow. It allow for us to enter while in combat. Its nice but not much effective because everyone can see you anyways. What makes it worse is that other classes can use Stealth. That feature should have never left the Rouge class. No other class specializes in stealth. Not even hunters. Stealth was the only thing to protect us. We do not have heals or defense. Yet it was taken from us. Stealth was all we had to protect us.
The Assassins have a good bit of skills. They need to be reworked. Make it so Stealth game play and attacks are usable again. Skills need to deal more damage while in stealth. Even cause immobilization of the enemy when using the skills and leaving stealth mode. Add back stab and stealthy blow features. The Dodge and Attack Speed system is broken too. Those are no longer viable for end game. The whole Perfidy tree needs to see change. Allow assassins to ignore more of the enemy defense. The other dodge talents are not currently usable.
Damage Change and Critical Hit
Assassins love burst damage and high crits. We live and breath this. Now its not the case. We are in need of reworks here. Its not the same kick anymore. Others classes have so many heals and defense features we just cant break it anymore. Assassins lack the ability to quickly burst someone low on hp. A full combo on any good player is not enough now. The damage needs to see increase. Critical Hit too. Its hard to tell if it really works now. I have 234% crit hit if i add 10 crit hit or take off 10 i can see the difference. While if i change 1 seal for an attack seal i will see a better change. So is Crit broken too? Pure damage is better than Crit hit?
A lot of change needs to take place. Add talents and skills that break the enemy defense more. The current way is not enough. All the classes have too many ways to protect themselves. We need better burst dps. A full combo will not work. Not to mention all armor spiting and decrease defense skills are cleansed fast. Render it non viable.
DefenseDefense we do not need defense. We do not need heals. I`m not asking to make Assassins the new "god" class. We shouldn't be tanks. We are supposed to Kill and get out of the way via stealth mode. I do however think Assassins deserve the king of Burst DPS. Assassin don`t have that title anymore. DK with 1 combo and kill most people on the server. It just crazy. Assassin are supposed to be High Fast Damage and Low Defense its not the case in Royal Quest and it should change asap.
These are just word walls. Latter i can post actually skill and talent rework suggestions. Actual numbers and figures.
Assassin Gear Changes.
Another issue with the assassin is the gear. We can only wear few items. This is understandable. Yet its limited to few items. The Ghost Gear set for example. It mainly gives Dex,Dodge, some stamina, and sometimes energy which is odd. Those gear items are not really effective for game play. Most assassin builds being full crit or elemental builds. Since dodge and Dex builds are not effective they are not used anymore. Thus we resort to using other items. Such as tomb raider greaves, AK gloves, and even a variety of boots.
I suggest add more gear that provides the assassin with extra Crit Hit, Strength, Stamina, even luck. I know the Crusaders have access to gear items with crit. I am not sure why. Assassin should have this option too. Allow for more play styles. DoT time builds, Elemental , Dodge/dex, and Crit builds. These need to be made into more viable builds. A lot of gear needs to be changed. The wild buffalo hat is end game and quite rare. Yet only 3% crit hit and +240 health. For a lvl 57 hat that is a little sad. You would expect a little more hp and even crit. Small things like that. Many classes have the same issues. All these End game gear items with bad attributes.
These small changes are need. All classes would be better if gear items actually allowed you to make a viable build. The endgame assassin gear with dex, and dodge doesn't help. Of course if you wanted to be dodge then it would be nice. Its been tested. Long ago we all said it was not an option for assassins.
To sum it up.
*Change Talents and Skills
*Change gear Items add or change existing ones
*Add more play styles
*Need better dps and crits
I will post rework examples soon.
I will write down every gear option, talent,skill assassin have at there disposal if i have too. Maybe these reworks will lift up our fallen brothers too. As Reikkan calls them our (Depressed Assassins) i would get drunk too if my talents/skills were that bad.
Fellow Assassin what are your thoughts. This game... This game has taken our lands..Its lay in ruins and overrun with monsters... (forest of shadows).. They have Taken our pride... Taken all that we hold dear...(dps and stealth). Now its time to retake what is rightfully ours!!!!
