Maplestory 2 Assassin Skill Guide

Maplestory 2
Maplestory 2

Assassins in Maplestory 2 have the highest single-target burst DPS (damage per second). While mobile, they're finished once they get caught in an attack. Because of this, they're quite hard to master. The Assassin's high burst damage owes its existence to a high LUK stat. That stat ups the class's critical chance and damage, and that's why they have such a large damage output. As for equipment, if you have Maplestory 2 Mesos to spare, try getting equipment with Piercing, Boss Damage, or Physical Attack traits.

Its builds mostly revolve around whether you want to stay at range or support, though the latter has somewhat limited functionality. Let’s take a look at the skills of the Assassin!

Assassin Builds

The easiest build is the throwing weapon one. Lucky Stars, Star Chaser, and Star Flurry are your main skills. Get Thrown Weapon Mastery to increase damage, and Fatal Strikes so they always hit critically. Use Shadow Chaser for SP recovery, and Dash for getting out of attacks. It's easy to use as you can macro the first three skills so you can spam them.

This build's damage scales with both your weapons, so make sure you have weapons that are almost equal in damage. Variations include max level Fragmented Star and the inclusion of Shadow Cutter. The former has more burst damage, but it works only in some dungeons.

Another build is the Shadow Cutter build. It has more single target damage than the above but is more difficult because you can't macro the skills together, unlike the former. The build is recommended if you have one weapon stronger than the other and you have the finger dexterity to press 5+ buttons for skills while dodging enemies.

Shadow Cutter, Shadow Burst, and Soul Grind are your main skills. Get Shadow Arts to increase the damage, Lucky Stars and Fragmented Star for extra damage, and Shadow Chaser for SP regen. Lastly, don't forget to useFatal Strikes as your main buff, and Dash for extra evasion capabilities.

Whether you decide to follow these builds or try your own, we hope you continue enjoying Maplestory 2!
