Enemy Ability: Venom Strike
This ability damages the targeted enemy and gives it a Poison debuff lasting 3 turns. The debuff causes damage at the start of the affected monster's turn. If the target is already poisoned, the duration of the debuff is increased.
The damage dealt by the poison buff depends on Special and has a magnitude of 0.45 .
Ally Ability: Smoke Screen
This ability applies the Smokescreen buff to the selected ally, making them untargetable for 2 turns.
Self Ability: Riposte
Applies the Riposte buff to the Assassin. This buff lasts for one turn and causes the Assassin to dodge the next direct attack aimed at her, completely evading all damage and effects. The Assassin then immediately counter-attacks. This attack does not inflict poison but is more damaging than her normal attack. The buff disappears after one attack has been countered.
Area attacks do not trigger a Riposte, nor do non-damaging abilities.
Thanks to Riposte and Smoke Screen, the Assassin can serve as a secondary tank. Especially so against enemies with predictable attack patterns, like Odilons or Skeleton Archers. Smoke Screen is a very fast attack, and with enough Speed, Assassin will be able to protect both herself and another party member between enemy attacks.
Poison debuff from Venom Strike deals armor-piercing damage and is best applied on problematic enemies at the start of the battle. It also comboes well with Pyra 's Cauterize ability.
Riposte has one of the highest XP gains in the game, which can make the Assassin a good candidate for Stone Tablets during longer journeys to reach higher levels. Permanent upgrades are beneficial if using this strategy.
