Assassin Starting Equipment



 

 

Notes About This Class

  • Spook could be considered one of the most useful starting spells, as other means of negating fall damage don't appear until later in the game. 
  • This class is very good to start with if you want to use sorceries as well as normal combat effectively. You can use Dex weapons from the onset and add Int as you go.

 

 

Builds That Use This Class

  • Int/Dex builds (Warrior Sorcerers)
  • Dex builds

      I think this is the best starting class for noobs, not knight

      Spook for backstab cheesing all the tough enemies, making it easier to allocate more of your early stats to vigor/endurance and not suffer from having pathetic damage during tough 1v1s against enemies like the lothric knights.

      Also allows stealthing through tough areas and negating fall damage to take short cuts

      Only pyro is cheesier early game, but then you unlock orbeck and buy spook and backstab everything with Dark Hand instead of spamming fireball.

        Not optimized for min-maxing24 May 2016 01:46  

        It's unfortunate that Mercenary actually beats Assassin for making a DEX/INT hybrid. Assassin has few more points in FTH & LCK, which is a complete waste for DEX/INT build.

          Best Class to start and being gud at invading. Its starts with the infamous Bestoc and has one of the best invade spells, no sound while walking and no fall damage. and don´t forget the parry´ol´buckler. This class screams...low level pvp

            Assassin Quality Build16 Apr 2016 06:37  

            I've been using an assassin since I first tried DS3. I kind of unintentionally steered it towards a quality build, but I do have to say the assassin makes a pretty decent quality build.

              I can foresee many speed runners loving this class simply for starting with fall control, AGermanSpy in particular.

                His stats and gear reminds me the Noble class from Demon Soul. Both have light gear and a thrusting sword. And a catalyst.<br/>He seems less OP but his overall stats are quite similar.

                  Intriguing that the assassin starts with the estoc, a weapon that has proved its worth in previous games, and quite long range.

                    Looks like assassin class will have the most options available to it from the start of new game.
