Skills and AbilitiesEdit

Quick StrikeEdit

A basic melee attack that does minor physical damage.


The enemy spins around, doing moderate physical damage to all players as indicated by a red circle. Blocking will reduce the damage taken.


The enemy strikes at the player's back for moderate physical damage. This attack can only be performed if the enemy is behind the player, and Assassins will often leap to get behind the player. Ensure your character is facing the enemy at all times to prevent this.
