The Assassin is the ultimate Item+Combat class. The only thing Rank 7 classes have over the Assassin is the Safety skill. This is the only non-sovani class that enhances Weapon Art use.

This class will stop upgrading if the Item > Mystic requirement is no longer met.

How to Obtain:
For characters who can develop the required Wield and Weapon skills changing into an Assassin should be no problem, all that's required is to have Items among the significant skill groups. Training Shards from a different class type is not a good idea though, as that will get Alchemist instead.

Upgrade Options:
Since this is a Rank 6 class the only upgrades from here are the other ultimate classes:

  • Ordainer: requires Item/Mystic balance, all Weapon Types level 19+, STR59+
  • Warlock: requires all Arcana learned, INT59+
  • Ninja: requires Dual Wield 22 and Katana 19, Mystics + one other significant skill group, STR59+ or INT59+ (PC only)
