Assassination is a stat that affects the player's ability to knock people out making them unconscious. It is useful when you want to polish off a person or a bunch of people without fighting them, or alarming the guards. A knocked out person can be looted the same way as if they were asleep.
You can train Assassination at The Hub or any other city with a Thieves tower after joining the Shinobi Thieves. They have assassination dummies (assassination training, Mk. I & II) on the 2nd floor of their tower. Player Characters can also build their own Assassination Dummies after researching Assassin Training.
- Players can attempt to assassinate any character in the world, from Hungry Bandits to Security Spiders. It has been recommended that players assassinate the Wandering Assassin in The Swamp.
- Players can also attempt assassination on Fog Heavies while they are trying to eat imprisoned Fogmen in Mongrel. The Fog Heavies will be too distracted in their task and will not initiate combat after a failed attempt.
