What is Assassin in Diablo 2 Resurrected?

Assassin Introduction

After Vizjerei survived the disasters brought by Bartuc and Horazon, the rules of magic killers were formed. The Assassin (Asn/Sin/Assy) in Diablo 2 Resurrected is a martial arts expert who uses deadly traps and shadow disciplines to vanquish evil. Their task is to pay close attention to ronin priests who may be controlled by evil forces. In order not to be seduced by demons when performing their tasks, much of their training is extremely effective. They are unknown, in the mouth of ordinary people, Their appearance is limited to rumors and myths, and even the priests know little about them. Their reputation is shrouded in mystery. Those who know their true existence can keep them away from corruption to the greatest extent because they are afraid of their revenge.

Assassins do not use mana directly. They use magical items with automatic functions to imitate the effects of natural forces. In order to prevent potential crises, they carefully cultivate their mental strength and unarmed fighting skills. Assassins are good at using strange weapons: all kinds of swords and claws on their wrists. They skillfully use these weapons in combat. If both hands hold weapons at the same time, an Assassin will double his destructive attack. No lock can embarrass an Assassin. Therefore, an Assassin does not need a key to open locked chests.
