As of November 2nd, 2019, Ling | Cyan Finch is the latest assassin hero in the Original Server.
There are currently 18 Assassins in 4 categories in the game (Assassins, Fighter/Assassins, Mage/Assassins, and Marksman/Assassins).
This gives them more survivability than other Assassins, but more damage than Fighters.
Lesley gives herself a deadly advantage due to her longer range than regular Assassins. Yi Sun-Shin can switch his weapons from melee to ranged attacks based on the distance between the target and himself.
They have the ability to have blink skill in order to become a mage and agile at the same time.
- 2 of the assassins have Season Exclusive skins: Alucard and Fanny.
- Natalia and Lancelot are the only assassins whose first skill can be cast again if it hits an enemy.
- Harley and Kadita changed their roles into Mage/Assassin Heroes without changing their skills.
- Gusion and Karina changed their roles into Pure Assassin due to the addition of Magic Damage Specialty.
- Fanny is the hardest hero to handle because of the complexity of her skills, with a 100% difficulty rating, but is also considered one of the strongest heroes. She is also the most agile hero in the game.
- Natalia and Helcurt are the only assassins who can silence enemies.
- Ling is the only hero who can walk wall to wall with a special camouflage.
- Benedetta is the only hero who can hold down her basic attack and release to dash forward and deal more damage than the original basic attack damage.
