Maplestory 2 Assassin Build: The Updated Tricks & Guide

In case of handling the lethal damage, the Assassin can be said to be the best in Maplestory 2.

Equipped to Slay

Firstly, we will be talking about Attribute. For the Assassin that is built for Crit, the main stat would be Luck. Most of the Assassin builds take critical hits as a damage boost. You should try to go full points into Luck if you are going with Fatal Strikes. You also can reset AP for free so that you can test your DPS for your Assassin build.

For the gear bonuses, the focus would be on these stats for each gear type. Here is an arrangement of them in order of their priorities.

  • Weapon: Piercing > Physical Attack> Total Damage > Physical Piercing
  • Headgear/Suit/Top/Bottom: Boss Damage> Physical Attack
  • Gloves: Boss Damage > Physical Piercing
  • Shoes: Boss Damage
  • Cape: Piercing > Boss Damage >Critical Damage/Critical Rate
  • Belt: Piercing > Boss Damage >Critical Damage/Critical Rate
  • Earring/Amulet: Piercing > Boss Damage > Critical Damage/Critical Rate

The Gear with such bonuses is important but it also might cost you a lot of Maplestory 2 mesos.
