Assassination is a High-level class ability available to thieves only, excluding the Swashbucklers, who get Whirlwind Attack instead. This ability may be selected only one time.

Note: Some enemies are immune to backstab.


Using every clever trick an experienced Thief has learned in countless battles, this ability allows every strike in the next round to act as a backstab, using the Thief's existing backstab modifier to determine damage.
