Overview

SINX.PNG

An elite group of Assassins. The Assassin Cross utilizes stealth and confusion in order to land the perfect killing blow. The Assassin Cross has a huge repertoire of lethal arts including ultimate mastery of poison-use, better than the original Assassin. With these new skills, the Assassin Cross now has a wide choice of brutal methods to overcome opponents. All without ever leaving the shadows...


Job Change Guide

Assassin Cross classchange 0.gif
To become a Assassin Cross, you must find a book called 'the Book of Ymir' in 'Sage Castle', Juno. The book will lead you to Valhalla so you can change your job through the Assassin Cross Job NPC. Also you must reach at least Job Level 40 as a Transcendent 1st class character. Reaching Job Level 50 first is strongly recommended, as the player will never be able to recover the extra job levels / skill points after the job change.

Builds

See Guillotine Cross Builds for build strategies to work towards. See Assassin Builds for leveling strategies for just the Assassin Cross leveling stages. Leveling an Assassin Cross is similar to a regular pre-trans Assassin, but with a few new skill additions.

New Skills Overview:

Enchant Deadly Poison is an extremely powerful buff that enhances most of an Assassin Cross's or even a [[Guillotine Cross]'s attacks. This buff is also primarily the reason why Assassin Cross and Guillotine Cross classes are one of the few classes that are effective using ctrl-click rather than skill spamming.

Create Deadly Poison is a requirement for Enchant Deadly Poison. Some serious players will create an alt character purely for the purpose of brewing poison bottles, with specialized brewing stats.

Meteor Assault is a new AoE skill that requires a Phen Card or another gear with a similar effect in order not to be interrupted. Most Guillotine Crosses opt to use only Rolling Cutter in the third class stage.

Advanced Katar Mastery boosts Katar damage even further.

Soul Destroyer is a ranged skill based on ATK and INT.

Equipment

Eden Group Equipments Quests

Main article: Eden Group Equipments Quests

Most transcendent characters will have already completed some Eden Equipment quests already and can reuse the equipment. If the character has not done the quest yet, they can do it as a transcendent character as well. The Katar is a good weapon and generally a good choice for an Assassin and their future classes' use.

General Equipment Recommendations

Main article: Equipment

The Equipment article lists some general all purpose equipment that is useful through the PVM phase and also for endgame use as well.

Third Class Compatible Equipment

Main article: Guillotine Cross Equipment

It is recommended to look at the Equipment recommendations for the Third Class job to see what equipment to strive for, rather than to spend a lot of money on a piece of equipment that will not be used in the future as a third class. However, some equipment may have a high level requirement, or are transcendent only.

Weapons

After considering what requirement skills have (some skills can only be used with certain weapon types), the Weapon Search tool within the iRO Wiki DB site is very helpful. Generally, for physical classes (both melee and ranged), something with high ATK is best. For magic classes, something with high MATK is best.

A easy way to greatly enhance dps on a katar is to use chick hat or using a sidewinder card. This will make your katar Double Attack at a 50% chance.

Some weapons that couldn't be used as Assassin and can be used by Assassin Cross are:

13027.png Scalpel [3]
13035.png Sandstorm [4]
1269.png Inverse Scale
13034.png Desert Twilight [2]
13039.png Ivory Knife [2]
13047.png Weihna [2]

One of the main differences of this weapons comparing to the Assassin weapons are the daggers. The strongest 3 slotted dagger is Scalpel instead of Gladius, and the strongest 4 slotted dagger is Sandstorm instead of Main Gauche.

Armor

SinX Gear

Sin / Thief Gear

  • Thief Clothes [1 : Extremely light, but limited to the Thief class and rare. Think carefully before compounding a pair of these with a useful card. (+6 DEF, +1 AGI, 10 weight)
  • Chain Mail [1 : Very heavy but gives more DEF than Thief Clothes and are quite common. (+8 DEF, 330 weight). Since assassins usually get high STR, thus having large weight limit, this is the most common choice of armor.
  • Mantles/Formal Suits/Cotton Shirts/Coats : Useful for different elemental armor, so they are all on different hotkeys. Mink Coats can also be used but they are very heavy.
  • Panties or Panties[1] : Cheap and can do a good combo with Undershirt.
