Notes[edit]

  • When used against Charr, the Ebon Vanguard Assassin can survive long enough to complete up to two attack chains. When used against other foes, the Assassin only has enough time for a single attack chain.
  • You can create multiple Assassins in an area.
  • It is not infused nor does it leave an exploitable corpse.
  • When its summoning period ends, it appears to Shadow Step into nothingness.
  • The Assassin does not always target the foe targeted by the caster.
  • It will be higher than level 20 if cast under the effects of Signet of Illusions with an Illusion Magic rank 17 or more.
Anomaly Anomaly.The Assassin doesn't shadow step; it is spawned directly next to the target.
Anomaly Anomaly.The Assassin is counted as a created creature for Spirit's Gift, Explosive Growth, and Boon of Creation. However, it does not count as a summoned creature and is not affected by Spawning Power. Despite this classification, it is not affected by sulfur.
Bug Bug. Very rarely, the assassin may stay indefinitely.

Trivia[edit]

  • Assuming the Assassin is able to complete his combo, this summon has the highest consistent damage output among the five reputation-governed summons.
  • Contrary to the skill icon, the summoned Assassin ironically does not wear Ebon Vanguard armor.
