Assassinate is an offensive attack skill unique to Assassins. Among the weapon-attack class skills, Assassinate deals the greatest amount of damage at one moment. It is the main trump card of the Assassin class.
If Assassinate is performed on a target that is at least 10 levels below the attacking player, it usually results in instant death.
When an Assassin reaches higher levels, more advanced versions of "Assassinate" become learnable. This includes "Assassinate III" at level 42 and "Assassinate IV" at level 57.
The absolute maximum damage that can be dealt by any version of Assassinate is 10,000.
