I must admit! I'm excited for Assassins! And I think I'll be getting an Abyss Walker. I'm bored so I was trying out a skill simulator for them. Your thoughts?

Chakra Cure (Level 10 (Maxed)) and Chakra of Energy (level 11) and Ring of Chakra (Level 1)- For utility. Might be a better idea to max Chakra of Energy as well.

Illusion Strike (Level 6) because the dps is low.

Pact of Ajna (level 1) only just to unlock the summon. Tight SP.

Initial thoughts: It's really hard to build an AW. I want a dark type character with heal, just like my Dark Summoner and can be used well in parties. Tsk and ravens will probably be imba mainstream.

I guess not everyone knows how AW skill works for now so most are probably in the dark, but I'm interested if someone can shed a light on this.

Highest tier Line of Darkness and Ring of Strike is a must. The other skills to max is either Night Explosion EX or Plasma Burst EX (pick 1).
I personally prefer lv13+1 Chakra of Healing over Chakra of Energy. It gives AW more versatility (it can also heal MP, buff your ally + summon, and float yourself).

Your skill build don't have ring strike and also don't have healing chkra (that boost your and party dmg by 50% o_o") and bringer don't need mp and mprecovery because he can recover mp D:"...

Ring Strike is pretty good IMO. It can deal decent DPS and up to 23 hits for a full hit.

I would rather you took the meditating skill then Chakra of Energy. Reduce Chakra of Energy and Shadow Focus to level 1. Since Chakra of Energy is more for a LF although it can heal about 14% of HP for 3 members at max level. But I don;t think it's worth the SP.

Ring Strike level 11 and  Chakra of Healing level 6. Though sacrificed 1 SP at Line of Darkness.

There is no need for Spectral Guise IMO.

Or like what Fourrier said decrease either Night Explosion or Plasma Burst SP then you can get higher healing levels.

Nope. I think it will be a week for it to be implemented? The duowan simulator were only released on wed night.

thanks for the inputs. The thing with healing chakra that im iffy with is is that I deal no dps when using it except summons. I guess that means there are 2 possible ways of playing AW: healing chakra but Damage from summons (passive gameplay) or an active gameplay that's why I preferred chakra of energy. On the latter, I can leave the healing to a priest/lf.

On ring strike, yeah really good boars damage. Must probably choose between night explosion or plasma burst

Not too sure whether you guys know this, but Shadow Focus requires one to be inflicted with the Bringer's burn / curse status debuff before it can be effective, much like EL's Ignite / Shatter. What aggravates this is the probability of the enemy having to face you in order for the skill to take effect. I'm not too sure about this requirement however, so I'm going to test out when I get it.

Okay, that makes Shadow Focus a much harder skill to land :|

On the other hand, I'm curious whether this will work against KD'd targets.

So as long as the target is facing your character the skill will hit. Got it.
