ABILITIES

Concealed Weapon.png

Your spammable.  It also stuns and sets enemies off balance that you attack from the flank as well as makes you move 25% faster while in stealth.

Impale.png

This provides massive damage to targets below 25% and can be used at range.

Twisting Path.png

One of the best aoe/dots in the game.  This provides huge damage in its area of effect as well as granting Major Expedition to allies.

Siphoning Attacks.png

Once activated, this passively causes your light and heavy attacks to both heal you and restore magicka.  You restore additional magicka when it expires, increasing with total time it was active.

Merciless Resolve.png

Once activated, every light and heavy attack will add a stack to a maximum of 5 stacks.  Each stack increases weapon and spell damage by 60 (300 total at 5 stacks).  At 5 stacks, this will convert into a new ability, Assassin's Scourge.  This will allow you to use the ability again for huge burst damage and healing you for 33% of the damage done if the enemy is nearby.

Incapacitating Strike.png

This ultimate deals disease damage and causes the target to take 20% more damage from your attacks for 6 seconds.  If used while over 120 ultimate, it will also silence the target for 3 seconds.  this ability passively buffs you with Reave, causing you to restore 100 magicka and stamina when you light or heavy attack to an enemy with a negative effect on them.
