Bayushi Moyotoshi Michael Komarck. The assassin works best as a melee support character. He works best when the enemy is distracted, slipping in just long enough to add to the battle before getting out. As he must avoid being targeted with attacks, the assassin is not a strong frontline character. The assassin gains some durability at higher levels, but never as much as the Fighter or Paladin. Thus, the assassin is still best when he is not expected.
