This is just a short introductory guide to playing the Assassin Cross class in RO. Leave me comments if this guide’s been helpful to you, if i get good ratings and good feedback, i’ll make a full guide w/ video demonstrations of the tricks i use (Frost Lock, 9 Hit SB, etc. etc.). Enjoy..
Vit Type SinX:
Well, for vit types — like me — who prefer to go with 1 on 1 matches and hard VIT can pretty much tank any job with the right gear switches. Going over the stats, i think it should be ,
Dex: What’s left of your stat points go here. If you’re playing in a farming server and you can’t quite get platinum skills for the SinX class, you’ll have to put less vit and get higher dex.
Going over the equipment, the image tells you the equipment. That’s from a previous semi-low rate server w/out Gods and Godly cards (Thanatos, etc. etc.).
The rest of the switches for me are, another Proxy Skin Fragment with a Giant Whisper Card and another with deviling, a Diabolus Armor with Tao Gunka, a Valkyrja’s Armor with Ghostring and an Orleans Server with Maya Card ( Just in case you accidentally get hit 3 times by a wiz’s Storm Gust and forgot to switch to Unfrozen/Deadly armor. Of course it’s still a gamble whether they use Jupitel Thunder or play it safe and use Thunder Storm. ). As for the weapons, the only 2 katars i user are, an Infiltrator with Incantation Samurai Card and a Katar of Piercing Wind with 2 Hydras and 1 Phreeoni, then of course after casting Sonic Blow, i switch back to a Cranial Valkyrja’s Shield and a Combat Knife, and i pack any dagger with 4 slots and arm them with 4 Stormy Knight Cards.
Strategy should be more than obvious at this point. When you’re playing a 1 on 1 game against another SinX, the idea is to kill him with 1 hit of a Sonic Blow, which is VERY POSSIBLE by the way, even if he’s wearing a Combat Knife and Cranial Shield when you strike him. The idea is to SCAN his weak elemental resistance. The 5 core elements used MAINLY are, Wind, Earth, Fire, Poison and of course the Neutral element. Scanning isn’t hard or anything, seeing as to you have every element at your disposal ( Saying of course that the server you’re playing on provides them on NPC’s ) you can use a converter and hit him with normal attacks, to scan for poison, just hit him with an envenom. If it doesn’t miss, that’s a 85% possibility that he’s gonna die with 1 blow. Once you get the element that does the most damage to him, hit him with your damage katar ( Infiltrator w/ Incantation Samurai Card ) armed with that element. If you’re going against a flee type SinX, it should be obvious innit? The first thing to do is to wear your frost dagger ( Any Dagger w/ 4 Stormy Knight Cards ) and hit him with an envenom. If he freezes, he’s an idiot, if not, hit him away with your Hit Katar. Hit him with your Hit Katar ( Katar of Piercing Wind w/ 2 Hydras and 1 Phreeoni Card ) armed with the element you want. Now, if by any chance you can’t kill that agi type SinX, that’s because he’s got upgraded equipment +10 and such or has high vit. Then, you’ll need another katar for that KOPW with 1 Hydra, 1 Inca, and 1 Phreeoni, or you could always change your stats to counter his ( Adding more dex ). For PVP, you basically try to freeze anyone you want to kill with Throw Venom Knife. If you can’t freeze em, hit away with a Sonic Blow armed with an element ( Try poison first :) ). Always remember that the switch sequence for PvPing is Frost Dagger -> Cranial V.Shield -> Combat Knife.
You can study the gear switches on your own i hope? :)
Tips and Tricks :
If you still can’t 1 hit him, i’ll give you a clue. Hit + SB + Switch ( To Cranial Shield and CK that is ).
If you can’t kill an LK or a Paladin even when you use the Sonic Blow Frost trick, you can do a frost lock on them ( Hitting tem without breaking the frozen status ). Same as above, Hit + SB + Switch ( To frost dagger that is, then Cranial Shield and CK).
Try to experiment with other builds, use elemental resistance potions to your advantage =)
Well, this is my first guide. I don’t like doing stuff like this. I only want to play and kick everyone’s asses :)
Sorry for not having a guide for Agi Type’s, i really don’t play agi types because i love high HP’s and i like to use the SinX Class’ s superb ability to tank. Maybe next time :)
