I think assassin is one the best pvp class in Aion. Here I want to provide some tips about assassin pvp problem. I’m not talking about the operation skills, coz I was not good at this myself. But I think some other factors are also very important. Ok! The following is my collection
1.How to choose Godstone (what’s Godstone?)
We know God stone has many awesome special effects, such as Daze, Paralysis, Blind, etc.
Proper choice of Godstone is essential in pvp. Each weapon can equip only one Godstone.
My collocation of godstone:
1 Aegir’s Eye Beam + Suthran’s Threat
Aegir’s Eye Beam
Imbues a weapon with the ability to blind the target for 8 seconds with 5% probability. Equip by visiting a Godstone Enchanter NPC.
Imbues a weapon with the ability to paralyze the target for 5 seconds with 2% probability. Equip by visiting a Godstone Enchanter NPC.
2. Godstone: Suthran’s Threat+ Godstone: Suthran’s Threat
3.Other recommended God stone: Daze stone; magic fire smash
Tips: there are other Godstones also have bilnd and paralyze effects, I didn’t list all the items. you can also find your own collocation.
When your enemy is blind or paralyzed, you can realize the power of God stone.
2.(KEY) How to choose Stigma stone
What is Stigma System? Our Aion.mmosite.com has detailed introduction: Stigma System
Sealed within each Stigma Stone is a powerful skill that makes a significant addition to your character’s aresenal. While some of these stones are readily available, others can be very rare and therefore prestigious. Stigma Stones can be equipped on your character through the Stigma panel. The number of Stigma Stones you can equip depends on the level of your character.
Level 20: 2 Stigma Slots
Level 30: 3 Stigma Slots
Level 40: 4 Stigma Slots
Here I will talk about how a lvl 40+ assassin choose the Stigma stone

The best choice:
1. Sneak Attack(MUST)
2. Convenant of Speed(MUST)
3. Convenant of Evasion(MUST)
And the last one I have two choices: Throw Blade for high attack(PVP), Smoke Bomb for pve and instance (to save you and your team),
And we will have higher stigma skills(I will write about this next time)
4. weapons choice
I’d like to say it depends on your own.
Double daggers : high att-speed, but low normal attack and skill attack
Double sword: low att-speed but high normal and skill attack
Dagger+Sword: mediocre way
5. personal tps:
1. enough supply. Don’t try to save money. You should remember that medicine means survival .
2. we are assassin, we love sneak attack and we run away at the best time.
OK! I hope all assassins can enjoy pvp in the Abyss.
