Perfect World VNG Assassin Review

Written by

Perfect World VNG finally releases their new class in the game, the most awaited Assassins. If you heard the word Assassins, the first thing that pops in your mind is it is stealthy and a hitman that is comparable to a ninja. One of the best melee classes, it gives the players mobility, stealth and actions while doing their adventure into the game. Though they are not that durable or heavily suited players, Assassins eliminates its enemy in a small footprint as possible where they always rely on their skills and its direct melee combat. 

Aside from the new Assassin, they also released a new server which everyone can join whether they are veteran or a new adventurer. The Server 9 gives players a fair ground to start especially when using the new Class in Perfect World VNG.

The Assassin

Aside from the Vulpine and Barbarian class, the Assassin is the newest addition to the Untamed race giving players more choices for this race.

One of the unique skills of the Assassins among other classes in Perfect World VNG is its invincibility where you can hide from your enemies eyesight allowing you to perfectly position your attack. The invisibility skill is handy when you need to flee from your opponents and need to regenerate some health, but make sure you don’t get hit as you’ll get 20% more damage while invisible. The advantage of Assassin is it gives extra damage against the enemies, especially when critical hit stat is in full gauge. While in team fights, Assassin is good for helping your teammates enough damage to the enemies.

The disadvantage of using Assassins is its light armor and low health, you constantly get a very low health while doing adventure. In Player Vs Player (PVP), directing an attack with skills to an enemy without enough critical hits could lead to your opponent to harshly retaliate with more damaging attacks. This is why some players found Assassins difficult to play.

Before playing the game, you may opt to create your own characters and tweak its preferences that suits your character Assassins. Here’s a sample that we made, an Asian like Assassin :).
