Assassin's Blade deals Magic Damage, with increased damage to targets with low health. The Killer's Blade morph changes it to have a Stamina cost and deal Disease Damage, also healing you if the target dies shortly after use. Or you can use the Impale morph, which allows it to be used at a distance.


Patch NotesEdit

* This ability's visual effects are now easier to see.
* Killer's Blade: This morph now deals Disease Damage instead of Magic Damage.
* Impale: Increased the range of this morph to 28 meters at Rank IV from 18 meters.
    • Developer Comments: Increasing the range on this morph to 28 meters matches the range of other Magicka Nightblade damage abilities such as Strife or Cripple, and makes this morph work cohesively with a ranged ability kit.
* The bonus damage dealt by execute abilities, such as Assassin's Blade or Reverse Slash, now works more intuitively with global damage done bonuses, such as Mighty or Minor/Major Berserk. Execute bonus damage is now multiplicative with global damage bonuses instead of additive.
* The damage from this ability and its morphs can now be blocked and dodged.
* This ability and its morphs now deal their bonus execute damage when the target is below 25% Health, down from 26% Health.
* Increased the cost of this ability and its morphs by approximately 30%.
    • Developer Comment: This execute was significantly cheaper than any other in the game, and was part of the reason that Nightblade DPS was higher than intended.
