FluxWing Posted July 9, 2018 Share Posted July 9, 2018 I only find vague comments regarding the topic on how Spells works with Back-stab/Assassinate for the Rogue sub-class Assassin. So as I understand it you receive the following bonuses on the first "attack": + 25 Accuracy + 4 Penetration + 25% crit damage (Does this scale/change with Power Level or Character Level? ) Has anybody tested out what works with Back-stab/Assassinate? As I have read even with the Rogue's own abilities which do "Full Attack", only apply the bonus on the first hit if dual wielding. And casting even offensive spells like Ninagauth's Shadownflame does NOT break stealth. But does so how does the bonuses work with spells? Does it only work with spells that deal weapon damage types (slash/pierce/crush)? (I remember this was the case for sneak-attack and scrolls in PoE1, which Beoroer made a nice build about) a.) How about the range limitation? Is Assasinate the same as with Back-stab? (<2 m), or works even at Arbalest/Arquebus range? b.) How would that work with AoE spells like Fireball? Do you have to be withing 2 meters of the center of the impact, OR is it enough to be 2 meters outside the yellow part of the radius? Multiple-hit spells, like most of the Minoletta's Missile spells? Only first hit gets the bonus just like with the Full-Attacks? I think this combination build has potential to make the otherwise somewhat one-sided Assassin a bit more varied playstyle. Imagine casting Minoletta's Precisely Piercing Burst with +2PL, after the tank have gathered up all the mobs and the Cipher has put a nice blanket of some nice juicy Sneak-attack- + Deathblow -qualifiers all snug on top of them....."Incertus...Pulchra...Imperio... *Poof* " Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
