Job Change Guide
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.

- 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.

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.
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.
