The Coolness of Assassins in Online Games
Assassins in RO: classic in Korean games
We can easily find that Korean online games have a great relish for the assassin class, and prefer to regard assassins as chivalrous heroes. For instance, the once-hot online game RO (Ragnarok Online) detailed assassins’ characteristics nearly to the utmost, e.g. leather armor, low HP, high dodge, critical hit, etc. Interestingly, assassins are the weakest among all the classes in RO, because they don't have swordsmen's high defense or mages’ high attack and can hardly beat down bosses or high-level monsters without priests' healing. But a good many players choose to play assassins, only because this class is capable of dealing full crits. In fact, players pursue full crits simply for hearing the nice sound of "pak". For example, +7 Blade (3 Skeleton Worker Cards socketed) was a famous weapon, and was much sought after by each assassin. Though players complained about the weakness of assassins, they never gave up playing assassins. Isn't this a proof of assassins' wide popularity? And we can say assassins in RO are a very classic class.
Assassins in DNF: bring tactics into full play
In DNF, assassins are fairly popular with players too. Valuing control tactics more than the other classes, assassins in DNF can not only do crits, but also give considerable damage through glorious combos. Particularly, assassins seek to kill foes in a flash during combat. With the aid of control tactics and skill combinations, those who choose to play assassins are usually considered to be superior and stand for a grave threat. This is also a reason why many players like playing assassins. In contrast with the other classes, assassins are not only cool but also keen on tactics.
Assassins in Aion: killers with wings
As a sub-class of scouts, assassins in Aion are suitable for solo play. The first thing that assassins should do in PvE combats is get abreast of monsters' characteristics swiftly and concentrate attacks on the monsters easier to hunt. Assassins can not only collect resources and hunt in a peculiar way to give heavy blows, but also release numerous skills to cause foes abnormalities. So, assassins are able to hunt more efficiently than any other classes.
Assassins in Vindictus: double-sword carrier
Assassins are much sought after in games, because they are immensely cool and more like heroes than warriors & mages. Their special style and impressive fighting skills are more liable to reflect players' personalities and control tactics.
Whether in solo or group play, assassins hold a distinctive foothold. Surely, lots of players reckon that assassins are too independent and can fully show their strength only in the games emphasizing solo play.
