ABILITIES

Barbed Trap.png

This is a trap you place at the enemies feet.  It does damage over time to the enemy and also buffs you with Minor Force, increasing your Critical Damage by 10%.  It also increases your weapon damage by 3% from the Fighter's Guild passive: Slayer

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.

Surprise Attack.png

This is your main spammable.  It does great damage and if you are flanking an enemy, shreds their armor, stuns, and sets them off balance.

Killers BladE.png

This provides massive damage to targets below 25% and heals if the target dies within 2 seconds from its use.  This ability is essential to reaching the highest dps the build provides.

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.

ROTATION

ROTATION: Spam Surprise Attack refreshing Twisting Path, Barbed Trap, and Merciless Resolve as they expire.  Use Incapacitating Strike as it becomes available.
